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

Moving to another house in Austin is usually a anxious time. You box up all that you own and move it to a entirely different place. One of the ways we make a new house in Austin feel much more like home is to set up our favorite belongings. Household furniture that's traveled with you from house to house, window coverings, and also decorations all help to make a area become more enticing. But what about your smart home?

Lots of people believe that when they move to Austin, their smart home will have to be fully re-set up in the new location. Naturally, it is really an all-new multitude of areas with different outlets and light fixtures. And they'll need to hook up to a whole new Wi-Fi network. Right? Interestingly, this isn't a fact. If you are one of the many folks who has produced an enjoyably reactive smart home out of light bulbs and also awesome gadgets, it is quicker to move your smart home than you might think.

Here's how to get it done:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Equipment by Space

3.Install by Labels

Sustain Your Wi-Fi Network during the Move to Austin

The first thing you need will be to keep your Wi-Fi network. You might be thinking about your Wi-Fi as a component of your internet service, that's location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different element, and it connects all of your home devices. It comes from your Wi-Fi router, which has network ports and an antenna.

Smart devices connect with this router plus the moniker you gave the local network for example "Williams Household Internet". Should you use the identical router and keep the exact network title, your smart home platform (hubs included) should be able to efficiently reconnect in the new place.

Tag Your Equipment by Room as well as Name

The next step is to preserve how your devices are used by room. If you are using smart lights, to illustrate, it is likely you have them intuitively labeled. Such things as "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". When you pack these bulbs (and be sure to switch out light bulbs and take the smart bulbs along with you!), label them with whatever their title is in your smart home app.

An identical procedure is true to every named smart gizmos. Keep them arranged the very same manner by which you have got them categorized now, most likely by room. Using this method, you're making a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home in the new area. Rather than finding yourself with a mess that ought to be relabeled and assigned to work once again.

Observe Your Own Instructions

Finally, refer to the instructions you created for yourself when you get to the new home. First and foremost, get your internet plan ready. Arrange your personal Wi-Fi network exactly the way it was organized before so the gadget configurations are still valid and will not have to be reset.

Next, install the equipment in line with their tags. Place your bedroom smart light in the socket in the new bedroom. Add your kitchen gadgets in the kitchen area, your media units in the living room area and so on. Since we generally converse with our smart homes in regards to room and purpose, technically getting into a whole new house having the same kind of areas still works out.

When everything goes successfully, you will not need to reassign the gadget categories and clever smart routines.


For those who have already set up a smart house but will be moving to Austin soon, moving your smart home is remarkably painless. All that you need to do is ensure all the options work exactly the same in your new home.
