Moving Your Smart Home

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

Moving to a new home in Oklahoma City is usually a jarring experience. You box up whatever you own and move it to a totally different spot. One of the ways we make a new house in Oklahoma City become more like home is to set up our favorite things. Your furniture that has moved with you from house to house, curtains, as well as artwork all help to make a place become more welcoming. However what to do regard your smart home?

Many people think that after they move to Oklahoma City, their smart home will have to be completely re-set up in the new residence. After all, it is really an all-new set of spaces having different sockets and light fixtures. And they will have to get connected to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Right? Shockingly, this is not accurate. If you are one of the numerous people who has generated an enjoyably responsive smart home using light bulbs and awesome devices, it's simpler to move your smart home than you may realize.

Here is how to make it happen:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Devices by Room

3.Set up by Labels

Keep Your Wi-Fi Network through the Move to Oklahoma City

The very first thing you will need would be to maintain your Wi-Fi network. You may be focused on your Wi-Fi as part of your internet service, which is location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different aspect, and it hooks up all of your home gizmos. It comes from your Wi-Fi router, that has network ports along with an antenna.

Smart gizmos hook up to this router along with the name you gave your local network such as "Williams Family Internet". Should you use the identical router and maintain the same network name, your smart home solution (hubs included) should be able to easily hook up in the new space.

Tag Your Devices by Room and Name

The next task is to preserve the way your gizmos are employed by room. If you are using smart lights, for instance, you probably have them intuitively labeled. Such things as "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". As you pack these light bulbs (and remember to change out bulbs and take the smart bulbs with you!), tag them with whatever their moniker is in your smart home app.

An identical rule applies to all titled smart products. You can keep them arranged the identical way you have them classified currently, likely by room. In this way, you're making a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home inside the new spot. Rather than dealing with a jumble which needs to be renamed and also assigned to function once again.

Observe Your Own Directions

Finally, refer to the instructions you created for yourself when you get to the new place. First and foremost, get the internet plan in place. Set up your own Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was established earlier so your device settings are all still appropriate and will not require to be reset.

Subsequently, set up the equipment according to their tags. Put your bedroom smart light inside the socket in the new bedroom. Add your kitchen gadgets in the kitchen area, your media gadgets in the family room and so forth. Given that we generally converse with our smart homes with respect to room and functionality, theoretically getting into another residence having the same kind of rooms still works.

When all goes successfully, you will not need to reassign your equipment categories and nifty smart routines.


Should you have presently set up a smart residence but will be moving to Oklahoma City shortly, moving your smart residence is amazingly straightforward. All you have to do is make sure all of the options operate exactly the same in the new home. And after your smart gizmos are back in position with your favorite friendly AI assistant, the new place is going to feel just like home.
