Moving Your Smart Home

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

Moving to a different home in Atlanta can be a jarring experience. You pack up all that you own and move it to a wholly new location. One of the ways we make a different house in Atlanta seem more like home is to put up our preferred belongings. Home furniture that's traveled with you from place to place, curtains, as well as pictures all make a space feel more welcoming. But what to do regard your smart home?

Many people believe that once they move to Atlanta, their smart home will have to be fully re-set up in the new space. Naturally, it is an all-new set of locations having different outlets and light fixtures. And they're going to need to connect to a totally new Wi-Fi network. Right? Interestingly, this is not accurate. If you're one of the many individuals who has built an enjoyably responsive smart home out of lights along with nifty gadgets, it is quicker to move your smart home than you may realize.

Here is how to make it happen:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Equipment by Area

3.Install by Labels

Maintain Your Wi-Fi Network in the Move to Atlanta

The initial thing you will need would be to take care of your Wi-Fi network. You could be focused on your Wi-Fi as a component of your internet service, which is location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different aspect, and it hooks up all your home gadgets. It comes from a Wi-Fi router, which includes network ports and an antenna.

Smart gadgets connect to this router plus the name you gave the local network for instance "Smith Home Internet". If you utilize the identical router and keep the exact network name, your smart home solution (hubs included) should be able to quickly hook up in the new place.

Tag Your Equipment by Room along with Name

The next task is to retain the way your gizmos are employed by room. When you use smart lights, for example, you most likely have them intuitively tagged. Things like "Kitchen Light" and "Bedroom Light". As you pack up these bulbs (and be sure to change out light bulbs and bring your smart bulbs with you!), tag them with whatever their title is in your smart home app.

A similar concept can be applied for all named smart gadgets. You can keep them arranged the exact same way you've got them categorized currently, likely by room. By doing this, you will be making a plan for yourself in reinstalling your smart home in the new area. As opposed to winding up with a mess which needs to be renamed as well as assigned to work again.

Comply with Your Own Guidance

Finally, refer to the instructions you left for yourself when you arrive to the new home. First of all, get your internet plan set up. Build your personal Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was put together previously so that your equipment settings are all still appropriate and do not have to be reset.

Subsequently, set up the devices in accordance with their labels. Place your bedroom smart light in the socket in your new bedroom. Add your kitchen units in the kitchen area, your media equipment in the living room and so on. Since we tend to converse with our smart houses in regards to room and function, theoretically being in a whole new house having the same type of areas still works.

If everything goes successfully, you won't have to reassign your gadget categories and nifty smart routines.


Should you have currently set up a smart residence and may be moving to Atlanta shortly, moving your smart house is remarkably straightforward. All that you need to do is make sure all the configurations function similarly inside your new place. And when your smart gizmos are back in position with your favorite friendly AI assistant, the new residence is going to feel like home.
