8K and Ultra HD
It looks like 2020 will be the year of 8K TVs. The latest offerings from Sony and other major manufacturers have quadrupled the pixels of 4K Ultra HD to accommodate bigger screens and sharper images. There’s just one problem: bigger images require greater bandwidth.
If you love streaming movies and TV shows, you may need a network upgrade. Bandwidth refers to the amount of space the signal has to travel in. Bigger signals need greater bandwidth. Modern networks can facilitate all the high-quality signals you’ll use for 4K and 8K streaming, plus lossless audio, without disrupting the function of other devices in your home.
Some things are just more important than others. When it comes to your smart home, you’ll want to ensure the most critical systems get priority. But an old network may not understand the difference between your surveillance cameras and your thermostat.
As part of a networking upgrade, your integrator can use advanced prioritization software. The program acts as a traffic cop — it tells the signals where to go and determines which are the most important to let them through first. By organizing your system, you can ensure that everything has a faster response time and get the most out of your smart home.
Increased Property Value
Though wireless networking is a popular way to jump into smart home technology, wiring for smart devices is statistically proven to increase your home value.
According to CNET, 81 percent of potential homebuyers say they’d look for smart homes with connected technology in place. Currently, 41 percent of millennials own smart home products, and they want to customize their new home with the easy-to-use benefits.
That means putting a strong network in place can help make your home more desirable if you ever put it on the market.
