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

Moving to another house in Colorado Springs is usually a stressful experience. You box up everything you own and move it to a totally different spot. A great way 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, window coverings, and artwork all help make a area feel more pleasing. However what about your smart home?

Many people assume that once they move to Colorado Springs, their smart home will have to be completely re-set up in the different location. In fact, it's an all-new group of spaces along with different plugins and light fixtures. And they'll need to connect to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Right? Surprisingly, this isn't true. If you're one of the many people who has generated an enjoyably reactive smart home out of lights as well as clever equipment, it's simpler to move your smart home than you might think.

Here is how to accomplish it:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Devices by Room

3.Install by Labels

Keep 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 may 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 your residence devices. It comes from a Wi-Fi router, which has network ports and an antenna.

Smart gizmos get connected to this router plus the name you gave the local network such as "Williams Household Internet". If you utilize the same router whilst keeping an identical 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 phase is to retain how your gizmos are used by room. If you are using smart lights, for instance, 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 swap out bulbs and take your smart bulbs with you!), label them with whatever their name is in your smart home app.

A similar rule applies to every named smart devices. Keep them classified the exact same manner by which you have them identified now, probably by room. Using this method, you will be leaving a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home in the new home. Instead of dealing with a mess which needs to be relabeled and assigned to function again.

Stick to Your Own Instructions

Lastly, 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 previously so your equipment configurations are all still appropriate and don't require to be reset.

Next, set up the devices in line with their tags. Put your bedroom smart light into the socket inside your new bedroom. Set up your kitchen devices in the kitchen area, your media equipment in the living room space and so on. Since we tend to converse with our smart houses in terms of room and function, technically being in a new house with the same type of areas still is effective.

If all goes properly, you will not have to reassign your gadget categories and nifty smart routines.


For those who have already set up a smart residence and will be moving to Colorado Springs shortly, moving your smart residence is remarkably straightforward. All you need to do is make sure all of the configurations work similarly in the new place.
