Boost Your Home Network for Corner-to-Corner Internet Coverage

A recent study in 2022 found that the average U.S. home had a little over 20 devices connected to the internet. In smart homes, that number can increase significantly. As your number of connected devices continues to rise, so does the demand on your Wi-Fi network. 

Slowly and insidiously, your connectivity shows signs of trouble. For many, however, the problem is so slight that it’s easy to brush off. After all, life gets busy, and one more call to one more technician is all you don't need. But then, you lose your connection during an important video conference call or tell your smart lights to dim by 50%, and they don’t respond. When your smart door locks fail to act or your security camera fails to send alerts, you know it’s time for an upgrade.

At Bethesda Systems, we specialize in home automation and creating smart home networks that ensure corner-to-corner Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home and outdoor spaces. Let's explore the signs that suggest you need an upgrade and the steps to take to ensure your home is connected, secure, and safe.
