Moving Your Smart Home

Moving Your Smart HomeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to a different home in Colorado Springs is usually a jarring time. You load up everything you own and move it into a altogether new location. A great way we make a different house in Colorado Springs seem more like home is to put up our preferred items. Furniture that has moved with you from house to house, drapes, as well as decorations all make a location feel more pleasing. Yet what should you do with your smart home?

Lots of people think that once they move to Colorado Springs, their smart home will need to be totally re-set up in the different location. Naturally, it is really an all-new set of locations with new outlets and light fixtures. And they will have to connect to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Right? Surprisingly, this is not a fact. If you're one of the many people who has generated an enjoyably responsive smart home from bulbs along with neat gadgets, it is easier to move your smart home than perhaps you believe.

Here's how to do it:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Gadgets by Area

3.Set up by Labels

Sustain Your Wi-Fi Network through the Move to Colorado Springs

The first thing you will need would be to keep your Wi-Fi network. You could be thinking about your Wi-Fi as a component of your internet service, that is location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a separate element, and it connects every one of your household devices. It comes from a Wi-Fi router, which includes network ports as well as an antenna.

Smart gizmos hook up to this router and the name you gave the local network for instance "Johnson Household Internet". If you are using the very same router whilst keeping an identical network name, your smart home solution (hubs included) will be able to easily reconnect in the new location.

Tag Your Equipment by Room as well as Name

The next step is to maintain the way in which gizmos are utilized by room. When you use smart lights, for example, you most likely have them intuitively marked. Stuff like "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". When you pack up these lights (and be sure to change out light bulbs and take your smart bulbs along with you!), tag them with whatever their moniker is in your smart home app.

The same concept is true for all named smart gizmos. Have them categorized the exact same manner by which you've got them grouped currently, most likely by room. By doing this, you are providing a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home in the new location. Rather than winding up with a mess that ought to be relabeled as well as assigned to function once more.

Observe Your Own Guidance

Ultimately, refer to the instructions you left for yourself once you get to the new residence. First of all, get your internet plan ready. Arrange your own Wi-Fi network exactly the way it was organized previously so the device options are all still valid and do not require to be reset.

Following, set up the devices in line with their labels. Put your bedroom smart light inside the socket in your new bedroom. Install your kitchen equipment in the kitchen area, your media gadgets in the family room and so on. Because we typically converse with our smart houses in regards to room and function, theoretically having a different residence with the same type of areas still is effective.

If everything goes successfully, you'll not even need to reassign the device categories and clever smart routines.


If you have presently set up a smart home but will be moving to Colorado Springs in the future, moving your smart residence is interestingly simple. All that you must do is be certain that all of the settings function similarly inside your new residence. And once your smart devices are back in place with your beloved friendly AI assistant, the new residence will feel just like home.
