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

Moving to a new home in Atlanta is usually a jarring encounter. You box up whatever you own and move it to a completely different spot. A great way we make a new house in Atlanta feel much more like home is to set up our favorite things. Home furniture that has moved with you from home to home, curtains, as well as pictures all make a place become more welcoming. However what to do regard your smart home?

Many people believe that after they move to Atlanta, their smart home must be completely re-set up in the new residence. After all, it is really an all-new group of spaces having different sockets and light fixtures. And they will have to get connected to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Right? Shockingly, this isn't accurate. If you are one of the numerous individuals who has generated an enjoyably responsive smart home using light bulbs and clever devices, it is simpler to move your smart home than it might seem.

Here is how to make it work:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Devices by Room

3.Set up by Labels

Keep Your Wi-Fi Network through the Move to Atlanta

The first thing you will need would be to maintain your Wi-Fi network. You might be focused on your Wi-Fi as part of your internet service, that is location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different aspect, and it hooks up all your household gizmos. It comes from the Wi-Fi router, which has network ports along with an antenna.

Smart gizmos hook up to this router and the label you gave your local network for example "Johnson Household Internet". If you are using the identical router and maintain an identical network name, your smart home solution (hubs included) should be able to efficiently hook up in the new area.

Tag Your Devices by Room and Name

The next task is to maintain how your gizmos are employed by room. If you are using smart lights, for instance, you most likely have them intuitively labeled. Stuff like "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". As you pack these bulbs (and remember to change out bulbs and take the smart bulbs with you!), tag them with whatever their moniker is in your smart home app.

An identical concept applies for all titled smart products. You can keep them classified the identical way you have them identified currently, likely by room. In this way, you're making a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home inside the new place. Rather than dealing with a jumble which needs to be renamed and also assigned to function again.

Observe Your Own Directions

Lastly, refer to the instructions you created for yourself once you get to the new residence. First and foremost, get the internet plan set up. Set up your own Wi-Fi network exactly the way it was put together earlier so your gadget configurations are all still appropriate and will not require to be reset.

Subsequently, set up the equipment according to their tags. Put your bedroom smart light inside the socket in the new bedroom. Add your kitchen gadgets in the kitchen, your media units in the living room space and so forth. Given that we generally converse with our smart homes with respect to room and functionality, theoretically being in a different house having the same types of areas still works.

If all goes successfully, you won't need to reassign your device categories and nifty smart routines.
