Wi-Fi and Networking
Go wired or wireless? It’s the big question these days.
But it’s actually the wrong question. What you should be asking is, “WHERE should I use wired versus wireless”
HomeRun can help you get the right answer.
Data networking. It’s not just for computers anymore.
Your TV, audio, video, phone, home automation gear, security – it all connects to the Internet now.
To make all this work, you need a home network with the right combination of wired and wireless connectivity — and when you are designing your new home, that is the time to get it right.
HomeRun Electronics can expertly design, install, and support your network for the technology-enabled life you desire.
Wired. Create a fast, stable, and secure connection to your data in the places that need it most.
We recommend putting a hard-wired Ethernet connection where you know you will have a device that can use it. Computers, smart TVs, video game systems, Blu-ray players, Roku/Apple TVs, etc. all benefit from having a hard-wired connection.
Ultra HD (4k) television streaming across the Internet, computer-based video conferencing, and voice-over-IP phone service are best delivered over a wire.
Shifting this bandwidth to your wired network frees up your wireless network. Of course, 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.
Wireless. Create a powerful Wi-Fi network to conveniently connect to the Internet where a wired connection is not available.
Walking around your home with your smartphone connected to a cable isn’t possible. Sticking a wireless router from the cable or phone company next to your TV set-top box isn’t very convenient or aesthetically pleasing.
HomeRun Electronics’ experts can review the layout of your home to plan for the optimal placement of your Wi-Fi router or access points (which must be hard-wired!) to ensure the strongest signal possible throughout your home.
What’s more, HomeRun Electronics can help maintain your Wi-Fi network and equipment to ensure that it’s always working at it’s best.
Structured cabling & distribution. Your home’s central nervous system needs to be designed for continually evolving technology.
HomeRun Electronics knows how to specify the quality and capacity of your cabling, design your wiring layout, and configure the central distribution panel for your home technology solutions.
We run all of your wires from the outlet location to a centralized panel. No daisy chaining! This structured approach allows you or a technician to easily update connections and services throughout your home as your needs change.
