Have you ever watched a cooking video?
The chef will whip up some incredible dish quickly, right in front of your eyes. They make it look easy.
But if you know anything about cooking, you know that it probably wasn’t easy at all. That even though something looks simple, it can actually be pretty complicated.
The same can be said about a network installation.

Your first thought when considering a home network upgrade might be “isn’t it just easier to install a wireless network?”
After all, it’s the 21st century and technology is more or less plug-and-play at this point.
Well, it’s true that you can operate your smart devices via a wireless network, and it may even be serviceable.
But if your house is bigger than a few rooms, you’ll quickly see those returns diminish.
Dead zones, spotty signal and limited bandwidth mean that your larger home won’t experience full, reliable coverage with a wireless network.
If wireless won’t work, what will?
A hardwired network is a great idea. That means running cables throughout your home to connect each device to the centralized hub in an out-of-the-way room.
Essentially, your 4K flat panel in the living room has to connect to the same media server as the TV in your bedroom, and so on. The same is true of each piece of connected tech.
As you can imagine, that’s a lot of cabling to run throughout your property.
To keep it concealed, your integrator will place the cables within the walls. You won’t see them, but they’ll do their job.
Some homeowners believe they can skip the hardwired system.
Thanks to advances in wireless technology, you can now install a mesh network that will give you fuller coverage throughout the space.
That’s a great idea – and a great addition to your separate, hardwired network.
Below, we’ve listed some of the benefits of a professionally installed hardwired network:
