How Home Network Services Give Your Smart Home a Strategic Edge

At Automated Lifestyles of Texas, we enjoy surrounding ourselves with the wonders of modern technology. We’re excited about everything happening in our clients’ homes, not to mention the incredible innovation we’ve seen in industry news and CES updates. But none of these trends could strive without a strong home network installation for your Salado, TX home, so it’s best to prepare now for the smart home of your dreams.


Strategic networking lacks the “cool factor” of foldable TVs or AI-enabled devices, but secure connection ensures a smooth-running smart home. Keep reading to see what we do to ensure that your connected home runs smoothly, no matter how many devices you’re using at one time.

What’s Wrong with Just Routers?


Unfortunately, homeowners often forget to consider the short reach of routers. They only cover about 150-square feet of your house, barely enough for even a small home.


Instead of investing in multiple routers and range extenders, Automated Lifestyles of Texas usually recommends some wired networking via wireless access centers. You might need one or more, depending on the size of your home and your unique needs. When we walk through your home, we will share our recommendations before making any commitments.


Our Preferred Products


Automated Lifestyles of Texas primarily uses Control4’s Pakedge equipment because it integrates seamlessly with our other Control4 products. Pakedge is optimized to connect high-speed, high-powered homes like yours, creating networks that facilitate communication between devices.


Pakedge Zones


Pakedge introduced their innovative Zones offerings recently, which divides AV traffic into distinct categories, such as management, automation, voice, data, audio and video, guest networks and more. This channel separation allows your network to avoid the stall associated with processing too much information simultaneously. Pakedge Zones also optimize your system performance across your routers, switches and accent points.


3G, 4G, and 5G Wireless Support


Connecting smart homes with top efficiency and remarkably low latency, 5G is loosely defined as the fifth wave of network technology. Its capabilities give us the speediest smart homes we’ve seen to date.


We hope to see more 5G technology emerge in smart homes, and we’ve been learning how to implement 5G since it rolled out. Even though only a few communities have introduced 5G, we can’t wait to accelerate Texas homes like yours in coming years. For now, though, we’re working diligently to speed up 3G and 4G networks, which power the majority of wirelessly connected smart homes.


As the region’s leading Control4 specialist, Automated Lifestyles of Texas offers home networks services for the fastest, most intelligent smart homes. Give us a call to learn more or fill out our contact form to schedule a no-obligation consultation. We’d love to hear from you!
