Smart Home Wiring - What Are the Advantages?

Just a couple of decades ago, the idea of a “smart home” was linked to sci-fi books and movies as well as cartoons. However, seemingly magical devices have become more and more popular with people remotely switching their lights on and off or adjusting their home’s thermostat from miles away. All of these sweet gadgets depend on a solid foundation though. If you want to enjoy these toys, then you will have to make sure they are connected to reliable electrical wiring. Fortunately, Mr. Electric has you covered when you need to upgrade your wiring to fit the demands of smart technology. Here are some of the benefits of upgrading to smart home wiring.

Whole House Surge Protection

Smart devices and appliances are becoming more and more popular, but they are still considered luxuries, with prices well above their traditional counterparts. If you have invested in such expensive devices, then you want to make sure they last more than a couple of years.

When it comes to electronics, electricity can make and break the devices. Upgrading your wiring to include whole house surge protection will protect your devices from getting fried by a sudden power surge. Even with today’s advanced weather forecasting, there is no knowing when disaster will strike.

Better Connectivity

Smart technology depends on electricity as well as reliable connectivity. Oftentimes, these devices are connected to one another and to your mobile device through Wi-Fi. However, Wi-Fi is nowhere near as reliable as a wired ethernet connection. An ethernet connection that plugs directly into your smart home wiring is about as good as it gets when it comes to security as well. So, if you want to ensure you do not lose connection to your home security cameras or experience a dropped call during an important video conference, then consider upgrading your electrical wiring.

Insurance Benefits

Speaking of security, let’s talk about insurance. Your property insurance provider is going to understand the benefits of a smart home security system backed up by an advanced wiring system. This gives you leverage to enjoy some affordable prices. What’s better than a win-win where your home is safer and you save money at the same time?

Reduced Energy Bills

Who doesn’t like to save money? Smart home technology backed up by reliable wiring gives you remote access to your electronic devices and appliances. Rather than walking through each room to check the lights, you can turn on your mobile app to turn off lights you are not using. This remote control also applies to thermostats and other devices as well. Some of these devices even provide usage and performance data, allowing you to maximize efficiency and lower overall energy usage.
