Moving Your Smart Home

Moving Your Smart HomeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to a brand new house in Wichita Falls might be a jarring time. You load up everything you own and move it to a altogether new place. A great way we make a different house in Wichita Falls feel more like home is to put up our favorite items. Household furniture that has traveled with you from house to house, curtains, and decorations all help make a area become more pleasing. But what to do regard your smart home?

Many people assume that if they move to Wichita Falls, their smart home will have to be fully re-set up in the different location. In fact, it is an all-new set of spaces having different outlets and light fixtures. And they'll need to get connected to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Right? Surprisingly, it's not accurate. If you're one of the numerous people who has built an enjoyably responsive smart home out of lights along with clever gadgets, it can be easier to move your smart home than you might think.

Here's how to do it:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Equipment by Room

3.Install by Labels

Sustain Your Wi-Fi Network during the Move to Wichita Falls

The initial thing you'll need is to maintain your Wi-Fi network. You might be looking at your Wi-Fi as part of your web service, which is location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different aspect, and it links all your home gizmos. It comes from the Wi-Fi router, that has network ports as well as an antenna.

Smart gizmos hook up to this router and the moniker you gave the local network like "Williams Home Internet". Should you use the identical router and maintain the exact network label, your smart home system (hubs included) should be able to promptly hook up in the new location.

Label Your Equipment by Room and Name

The next task is to maintain how your devices are utilized by room. When you use smart lights, to illustrate, it is likely you have them intuitively tagged. Stuff like "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". When you pack up these light bulbs (and make sure you swap out bulbs and take your smart bulbs along with you!), tag them with whatever their title is in your smart home app.

The same concept can be applied to all named smart devices. Keep them classified the very same way you have got them classified currently, likely by room. Using this method, you're making a guideline for yourself in reinstalling your smart home within the new location. Rather than finding yourself with a mess which needs to be renamed and also assigned to work once more.

Abide by Your Own Guidelines

Finally, refer to the instructions you created for yourself once you get to the new place. To start with, get your internet plan in place. Arrange your own Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was put together before so that your equipment settings are still valid and do not have to be reset.

Following, install the gadgets according to their labeling. Put your bedroom smart light into the socket in your new bedroom. Add your kitchen gadgets in the kitchen area, your media equipment in the living room space and so forth. Since we generally talk to our smart homes with respect to room and function, theoretically getting into another residence with the same types of spaces still works.

Provided everything goes well, you will not even need to reassign the gadget categories and nifty smart routines.


Should you have previously set up a smart residence and will be moving to Wichita Falls in the future, moving your smart house is surprisingly easy. All that you must do is be certain that all the controls work similarly inside your new home. And when your smart gadgets are back in place with your favorite hospitable AI helper, the new place will certainly feel like home.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
