Are you struggling with inconsistent Wi-Fi coverage in your Cincinnati, OH, home? This may result in dropped video calls while working from home or delayed response from your smart home devices. Often, it means a significantly weakened signal when you go on the patio or by the pool. Though it’s tempting to blame your internet service provider, your network installation may be the problem, not the signal itself.
How can you ensure you’re getting the most out of your network? Enterprise-grade equipment and a professional installation are the way to go if you have a large luxury home. This blog focuses on the former–the equipment and software thawe use to give our clients reliable whole-home Wi-Fi coverage.

Even the most inexperienced DIYers know they need a network router. But do you know how to choose the right one? Unfortunately, many homeowners rely on the one provided by their ISP when much better options are available. The enterprise-grade routers we use include high bandwidth for speeds up to one gigabit and multiple LAN ports to support up to 500 network devices. In addition, they reduce cyber threats with malware protection and add content filters for a safer internet experience for the family.
Networks for luxury homes require switches–as one router won’t be enough to cover a large property. At a high level, these switches relay your network signal to other devices, helping you direct and prioritize traffic. The first thing you need to know when choosing a switch is the number of ports you need. During the design phase, our team will also consider whether a managed or unmanaged switch is best for your home and if PoE (power over ethernet) features are necessary.
Unleashing the true power of your Wi-Fi will depend on access points. Place these strategically throughout your home to extend the reach of your wireless signal. These access points are hardwired to either your router or switch. After receiving that strong hardwired signal, they broadcast an equally powerful wireless signal for all your Wi-Fi devices. Lengthen the reach of your network by integrating outdoor access points by the pool or patio.
