Wireless networks are notorious for slowing down as people add on more of their devices. We live in a world where every member of the family is connected to Wi-Fi, from the kids on their tablets to the grandparents connecting their smartphones, while everyone gathers around the TV streaming premium content from HBO or Netflix in the media room.

All these devices take up valuable bandwidth on your network. Wireless networks with higher bandwidth can move data faster than a network with lower bandwidth. Think of it like a firehose vs. a water hose. A firehose is robust and strong and can handle a heavy flow of water, coming out at an expedited rate. A water hose is less robust and has a narrower channel to flow through. The higher the bandwidth, the more data can flow through the network. During the holidays, your network is taxed with streaming heavier amounts of data from a variety of devices; you need higher bandwidth to support this.

Supportive Desk and Seating

You can own the most comfortable couch and chairs at home, but that doesn’t mean they’ll facilitate productivity. There’s a difference between having comfortable furniture and ergonomic furniture. Ergonomic furniture is comfortable and encourages efficiency and focus. When selecting your home office chair, consider seat height, lumbar support, backrest design, and seat material.

Consider Structured AV Wiring for Your Audio Video Systems

With recent advances in technology more and more people are able to afford the luxury of upgrading their home entertainment capabilities. However the upgrade to your audio video systems experience comes with more wires and clutter. Many people desire a “wireless” appearance, and this is something that is not easy especially with devices in multiple rooms. Unfortunately, the issue goes deeper than mere aesthetics, according to the U.S. Fire Administration there are 26,100 fires annually within residential areas. It is estimated that half of these fires are caused by faulty wires, poor maintenance, and dangerous handling. A great solution for people who want to improve the safety of their home and still enjoy a great home entertainment system is structured wiring.

A structured AV wiring system can easily been installed in a home that's under construction or undergoing renovations. Some structured wiring systems may even be installed in an existing home. The system is very simplistic and organized, making it easy to be maintained and upgraded. It starts with a structured networking panel (SNP) which is similar to an electricity box. It accepts and distributes signals throughout your home. The signal travels from the  structured networking panel to a wall plate that has been installed in the room with your devices via the appropriate cable to the receiving device. Adapters are available for Ethernet cables allowing for Internet capable devices to perform at much faster speeds than Wi-Fi would allow. There are also connectors available for standard coaxial cable and fiber-optic cables.

Functionality and versatility are constantly in demand and a structured wiring system provides exactly this. Once the system is in place you will be able to enjoy your media on a whole new level. Whether you are entertaining for a party, having a movie night with the family or just relaxing on your night off from work you should have the option to do it in any room of your home. With a structured wiring system you can play a Blu-ray DVD, Netflix or Apple TV from your main system to any other television in the house. You can also enjoy your stereo from any location without the hassle of having to reorganize your home or move a single thing. With your media collection at your fingertips you'll never have to switch rooms to watch your favorite movie.

With the availability of professional grade programs on home computers many people are undertaking business and work from home. With a structured wiring system in place you can turn your cluttered home office into a spacious and organized work area. A separate telephone line can be installed for those that do not want the extra expense of an additional cell phone line. You can also network printers and facsimile machines within the system. There is no need for you to be tethered to a short device cable. With the ability to position the wall plate and connect your devices where you want them you have greater control over the layout of your office.

Luxul networking offers high quality network  easy to administrate,  really well performoing wireless, one signal all over the house sop no lapses going from one to the other.
