Cheyenne Hutchinson Smart Home, 2018-09-03 05:42:49. It's easy to overlook the power needs of your devices. Some people only discover their power setup is deficient after buying and setting up all their devices. In today's modern home, full of portable electronics that must be charged up, lights, televisions, routers, speakers and other gadgets, one quickly runs out of available power sockets. If you are buying energy intensive devices like heaters, ovens, large entertainment systems and the like, it's also quite possible you will overload your home's mains power. In traditional mains wiring, at least each room, and normally lights and power sockets in the room, will have a circuit breaker rated at a particular amperage. If you plug in too many devices you might overload the circuit breaker and find your TV suddenly cutting out in the middle of your favorite show, your blog article being lost when the PC loses juice or your bread loaf dying when the oven cuts out unexpectedly - a nightmare for anyone. If your home is poorly wired or older, overloading might also present a fire risk. Another issue is lack of space to plug things in - you will probably need mains extension "bricks" and adapters everywhere if your house is older or poorly designed with insufficient outlets.

So before you start your digital home project check your rooms' outlets and circuit breaker rating (if you're not sure, best to check with a professional electrician). Make sure you are at going to use at least 50% less Amps than your house mains is rated at, because some devices may pull more than their rating under certain conditions and let's face it - not everyone using your home is going to think about the power drain when they plug something in. For extending outlets, it's better to invest in high quality extension cords and bricks that have a wider space per outlet so you can fit in the bulky ACDC adapters that come with many devices. It is absolutely essential that the adapter is fully certified to CE, UL, FCC or other standard as required by your country, and choosing a well known brand is one way to be confident it is. Consider buying power adapters with inbuilt USB ports so plugging in phones and tablets is convenient and separate chargers don't take up all your space.

You must manage passwords of your Wi-Fi network intelligently and always give them a vague name. Always create a tight control towards guest access to your network. Always create two different Wi-Fi networks if you have a dual band router. Do firewall the network, either with a stand-alone appliance or software that ships with the router, to restrict incoming connections. Do use the WPA2 protocol instead of WEP protocol.
