In today’s home, we are all accustomed to wireless coverage to log on to the internet wirelessly from our tablet, phones and laptop computers. No problem. In a smaller residence this is often taken for granted. But as the size of the home increases and we begin to depend on the wireless network, not only for internet access, but for control of lights, music and other elements of an automated home – even changing channels on your TV, much greater demands are placed on that network.
In a larger home, wireless coverage is only as good as the wired infrastructure. Strategic placement of wired access points is crucial for robust wireless coverage. In addition to the computer network and WiFi, the wiring must also include provisions for telephone, cable TV and/or satellite. While there are wireless elements and features to those systems, a hard-wired infrastructure is the only way to ensure robust and reliable wireless coverage.
