Keep Your Home Network Humming with a Professional Installation
Everywhere you look, there’s a new smart device. The term smart device sometimes means different things to different people, but there’s no escaping them in today’s world. Your smartphone, tablet, and laptop are all smart devices. The definition of a smart device is one that has some intelligence to act autonomously and interactively, and one that can connect to a network for control and other purposes.
What do all these devices have in common? They all connect to a network and the internet through some type of network protocol. And that means your home network has to be up to the task.
Chances are, you received some new smart devices this holiday season. Whether it's a new iPad, smart speaker, or 4K smart TV, these devices all need to connect to your network. Is your system ready for the load?

Keep reading to see how you can keep all those devices running at peak performance – and keep the whole family happy.
Every Home Should be Seen in the Best Light
Often, people talk about a home feeling “dark.” Many factors play into this feeling, such as windows, window treatments, wall colors, ceiling heights, and even the weather outside. However, if that home had a well-designed lighting plan and the lights were appropriately layered, chances are you would have felt a feeling of spaciousness.
Such is the power of light – it influences us. If you are building a new home or remodeling, lighting should be a critical design consideration.
