In modern times, the term ‘smart’ is used to describe different devices and appliances that can be remotely controlled, monitored and accessed via a smartphone, tablet or computer. Smart devices connect to the internet and have ‘apps’ allowing you to access and control them over Wi-Fi.
With broadband becoming faster, more reliable and more affordable than ever before, it’s becoming much easier to connect homes and businesses.
The improved signal range of Wi-Fi routers means that a single router can offer wireless coverage across more rooms in our house, our office, and our workshops, allowing more devices to be connected. What’s more, low-priced networking equipment has made it cheaper to extend networks throughout premises that were difficult to cover using just a single Wi-Fi router. Even previously difficult properties with thick walls, can now benefit from a home network that covers the entire area.
