Reliable Wi-Fi connections are key to maintaining both a strong Internet network and any smart home or smart security system. Successful network management relies on the quality and location of your network’s router and any signal repeater devices. If wireless dead zones are a problem in your house, consider adding a signal booster or choosing a mesh router or to enhance the signal strength or overall range of your network. The number of Internet connected devices in your network, such as computers, smartphones, smart home hubs, and Wi-Fi connected smart home products also affect the overall performance of your network. If too many devices are connected at one time, the wireless bandwidth will be strained, resulting in spotty connectivity and slower internet speeds. When building or expanding your smart home network, it is important to always consider what your priorities are and what devices are required and capable of meeting your needs.
