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

Moving to a different house in Colorado Springs is usually a stressful experience. You box up everything you own and move it to a completely different spot. One of the ways we make a new house in Colorado Springs become a lot more like home is to set up our favorite items. Your furniture that has moved with you from place to place, drapes, and artwork all help make a area feel more pleasing. However what about your smart home?

Lots of people assume that once they move to Colorado Springs, their smart home must be completely re-set up in the different location. After all, it's an all-new group of spaces along with different plugins and light fixtures. And they're going to need to connect to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Right? Surprisingly, this is not true. If you're one of the many individuals who has built an enjoyably reactive smart home out of bulbs as well as awesome equipment, it's easier to move your smart home than you might think.

Here is how to accomplish it:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Equipment by Area

3.Install by Labels

Maintain Your Wi-Fi Network in the Move to Colorado Springs

The initial thing you will need will be to take care of your Wi-Fi network. You might be looking at your Wi-Fi as a component of your web service, that is location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different element, and it connects all of your residence devices. It comes from a Wi-Fi router, which has network ports and an antenna.

Smart gizmos connect with this router plus the label you gave the local network such as "Johnson Family Internet". If you utilize the same router whilst keeping the same network label, your smart home system (hubs included) should quickly reconnect in the new location.

Label Your Equipment by Room and also Name

The next step is to retain the way your gizmos are utilized by room. If you use smart lights, for example, it is likely you have them intuitively marked. Such things as "Kitchen Light" and "Bedroom Light". When you pack these light bulbs (and don't neglect to trade out bulbs and bring your smart bulbs with you!), tag them with whatever their moniker is in your smart home app.

A similar rule applies to every named smart devices. Have them arranged the very same manner by which you have them classified now, probably by room. By doing this, you will be making a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home in the new home. Instead of dealing with a mess that ought to be relabeled and assigned to function once again.

Stick to Your Own Instructions

Finally, refer to the instructions you created for yourself when you arrive to the new place. To start with, get your internet plan ready. Arrange your personal Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was put together before so your equipment configurations are all still valid and do not require to be reset.

Following, set up the gadgets in line with their tags. Put your bedroom smart light into the socket inside your new bedroom. Install your kitchen devices in the kitchen, your media equipment in the family room and so on. Because we generally converse with our smart houses with respect to room and purpose, technically getting into a new house with the same type of rooms still works.

If all goes properly, you won't even need to reassign your gadget categories and nifty smart routines.
