The modern world connects us and our homes more intimately, incorporating into every aspect of our daily lives. We rely even more on connectivity for work and entertainment; the growing demands on your current wireless networking from Zoom calls, virtual events, streaming services, and online games can become overwhelming.
The last few years have demonstrated a need for systems that provide faster, smarter, and more secure access. To accommodate all of your work from home and downtime activities, only a professionally maintained installation will do. While Wi-Fi has allowed you the freedom to roam, it has some difficulties that can make it unreliable -- that is, until now.

More Devices, Better Service
Wi-Fi is the primary method for devices to gain access to the internet, so much so that the name has become synonymous for many with connecting to any network. The newest version of wireless, Wi-Fi 6, accommodates the need to handle higher densities of devices and the bandwidth required for 4K & 8K streaming.
The average smart home includes 20-30 products that utilize the frequencies set aside by the FCC for Wi-Fi. The hive of activity and data throughput can cause older protocols and routers to bow, causing lag, delays, and the dreaded ‘content buffering’ message. 802.11ax (the official name for Wi-Fi 6) can connect four times the number of devices, prioritizing streaming and productivity services from video conferencing to Netflix.
Last Longer, Do More
Whether you are using a mobile device, touch panel, or Control4 Chime video doorbell, they run off of battery power. In a typical system, there is constant chatter between the router and devices; this drains the power reserves much faster. Wi-Fi 6 utilizes a precise timing schedule that allows units to turn off their radios until needed, saving energy and time.
Regardless of where you live, the wall of data and RF generated by your home, other products, and those in your neighbors’ homes can confuse your system. Wi-Fi 6 eliminates connectivity and transmission issues by tagging products in your house with unique identifiers, allowing the routers to ignore all but their own, increasing efficiency.
Safe And Secure
One of the pitfalls of wireless connections is that anyone walking by can intercept the signals at will. The upgraded protocol includes the default use of WPA3, and the security format makes it much harder for anyone to access your work data.
In addition to using more robust encryption techniques, the system constantly modifies the keys and schema. This feature, called forward secrecy, ensures that any intrusion will not result in illicit access to past or future data.
