Here are some helpful tips when setting up your smart home:

  • How many devices? – An inventory of the number of devices connected to your internet may surprise you. The more devices that need a connection, the more competition you have for bandwidth in your home. Turn off connections that are no longer needed. Older devices can slow wireless connections down.
  • Research and Compatibility – Think of your smart home as an ecosystem. The smart devices you purchase need to be compatible with each other. Consider your needs and plan ahead on your purchases and research them head of time.
  • Smart Device Notifications – Set up notifications on each smart device to let you know when there is an alert. Notifications can alert you when the garage door is eft open, when someone is at the door or when your smoke detectors go off.
  • Symmetrical High-Speed Internet – A quality connection is important. Ensure you have the right wi-fi router and a high upload speed to support all your devices. Not all routers are created equal. Upload speeds impact recorded video quality. HD streams usually need 3-5 Mbps upload per camera.
