Wondering If a Professional Home Network Is Worth It?

DIY vs. Professional Home Network Installations: Here’s Our Take

Anyone can set up a basic home network—if they want basic internet coverage. The web offers virtually unlimited resources that can help walk you through the process of installing a home network. So, why would a homeowner choose to work with a professional home network installation company instead?

Without getting into the weeds, we’ll say this: DIY home networks provide only a small fraction of the capabilities that a professional home network provides. If your Glenview, IL home features data-heavy connected systems like audio-video, security, and home automation, then you need a solution that provides expansive coverage and unwavering performance results—among other requirements.

Keep reading to learn the difference between a DIY and professional network installation and why enlisting the help of an expert like Avidia is your best bet.

Design and Installation

It’s easy enough to purchase a broadband modem and router and install them in a centralized location of your home. But how can you be sure the hardware you choose will support your needs? Especially now, more families are working and learning from home, which requires robust internet support for video conferencing. What if you experience weak spots and connectivity issues down the line? Should you install a second router, and if so, where should you place it?

When you work with a professional, you can put these questions behind you. After discussing your connectivity needs, our team will conduct a site survey using Wi-Fi visualization tools that allow us to identify potential dead zones and locate optimal locations for your access points. Your network will be custom-designed to provide exceptional performance and reliability in every corner of your home. 

Coverage and Speed

Dependable network performance shouldn’t be a luxury—especially for growing smart homes. Just like you rely on your car to start in the morning, you should be able to rely on your network to support your virtual work meetings, and your kids’ online learning, and all your internet-connected devices. It’s one thing to be faced with buffering video and slow download speeds, but it’s even worse when vital home devices, like your security system, lose connectivity. 

The ideal home network uses both wireless and wired networking methods for optimal coverage and speed. Our team installs CAT6 and fiber wiring to serve as a strong backbone for your home. Additionally, we use high-performance access points that extend reliable coverage to all corners of your home, including your outdoor living spaces.

Our network experts take reliable coverage a step further by offering dual internet connection systems that switch over automatically when your internet goes down. That’s right, a whole-house internet outage backup system! Talk about an internet connection that never lets you down.

Monitoring and Support

Two crucial benefits of working with a professional that you won’t receive if you choose to install your own home network are real-time monitoring and 24/7 support. If something happens to your internet connection, you can always try rebooting the router. But what if that doesn’t fix the issue? What’s your next plan of action? When you work with our team, we’ll always be one step ahead of the issue. 

Our team uses proactive monitoring tools to remotely troubleshoot your network and connected devices when an issue arises. Most of the time, you won’t even know there was a problem! Our remote monitoring services allow for quicker resolve and no in-house service visits. It’s a win-win for us both. 

Plus, we’re ready to chat with you 24/7 so you can always count on network support when you need it. Should a serious problem arise that requires an in-house service visit, you can take advantage of same-day or next-day appointments when you sign up for our Plus, Premium, or VIP service packages. 

While the proof is in the pudding, we think the answer is clear: A professional home networking installation is well worth it if you desire a high-precision network design, quality coverage and speed, and reliable support for your expansive smart home.
