But it's actually the wrong question. What you should be asking is, "Do I go wired AND wireless?"
HomeRun can help you get the right answer.
(By the way, the answer is probably "yes!")
Your TV, audio, video, phone, home automation gear, security – it’s all data now. 4K television? That’s old news. 8K television is just around the corner and it’s coming to you through the Internet like everything else.
To make all this work, you really need a home network with the right combination of wired and wireless data connectivity — and now is the time to get it right.
HomeRun can expertly design, install, and support your network for your technology-enabled life in your new home.
The typical home user needs a mix of wired and wireless connectivity.
We’re not advocates of "contingency cabling" every location in your home, but we do recommend putting a wire where you know you will have a device that requires it.
Ultra HD television streaming across the internet, computer-based video conferencing, and voice-over-IP phone service are best delivered over a wire.
Wireless has it's place, but a wire is still the most reliable, highest speed solution for data. And it will be for the foreseeable future.
There's no better time to get the network cables to the right places than when your home is being built.
Walking around you home with your smartphone connected to a cable isn’t really smart. Or even possible! Sticking a wireless router from the cable or phone company next to your TV set-top box isn’t very smart either.
HomeRun experts can review the design and construction materials of your home to determine the optimal placement of Wi-Fi routers or access points (which must be connected to wires!) to ensure the strongest signal possible in and outside of your home.
What’s more, HomeRun can maintain your Wi-Fi network and equipment to ensure that its always working at its best.
Wi-Fi access points can be placed in strategic locations in your home to ensure high performance coverage.
HomeRun knows how to specify the quality and capacity of your cabling, architect your wiring plan, configure your central distribution panel, and determine the best types of terminations at your outlets for your home technology solutions.
And, of course, we know how to professionally wire and install all of this in your new home.
We centralize each and every one of your cables from its outlet to the central distribution panel in your mechanical room. No daisy chaining! This structured approach with a central distribution panel allows you or a technician to easily move or update connections and services throughout your home as your needs change.
The central distribution panel provides flexibility to move and change services to different parts of your as your needs change.
