Moving Your Smart Home

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

Moving to a new home in Denver might be a jarring encounter. You box up everything you own and move it into a wholly new location. One of the ways we make a new house in Denver feel more like home is to put up our beloved things. Furniture which has followed you from place to place, drapes, along with artwork all help to make a place become more pleasing. Yet what to do regard your smart home?

A lot of people believe that when they move to Denver, their smart home will need to be entirely re-set up in the new space. Naturally, it is really an all-new multitude of locations along with different sockets and light fixtures. And they're going to have to hook up to a whole new Wi-Fi network. Correct? Remarkably, this is not true. If you're one of the numerous people who has built an enjoyably reactive smart home out of bulbs and clever gadgets, it's simpler to move your smart home than you might think.

Here's how to accomplish it:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Equipment by Area

3.Set up by Labels

Keep Your Wi-Fi Network during the Move to Denver

The first thing you will need will be to maintain your Wi-Fi network. You may be thinking about your Wi-Fi as part of your internet service, that's location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a separate thing, and it links all of your home gizmos. It comes from your Wi-Fi router, which includes network ports and an antenna.

Smart devices connect with this router along with the moniker you gave your local network for example "Williams Family Internet". If you use the identical router whilst keeping an identical network name, your smart home solution (hubs included) should be able to efficiently reconnect in the new space.

Label Your Devices by Room and also Name

The next phase is to preserve the way in which devices are employed by room. When you use smart lights, to illustrate, you probably have them intuitively labeled. Such things as "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". As you pack these bulbs (and make sure you trade out light bulbs and bring your smart bulbs along with you!), label them with whatever their name is in your smart home app.

A similar procedure can be applied to all named smart devices. Have them categorized the identical way you have got them classified now, probably by room. By doing this, you're providing a guideline for yourself in reinstalling your smart home inside the new home. Instead of dealing with a mess that must be renamed and assigned to be useful once again.

Follow Your Own Guidance

Ultimately, follow the instructions you left for yourself once you get to the new place. First of all, get the internet plan in place. Set up your very own Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was set up earlier so that your gadget configurations are all still correct and do not require to be reset.

Following, set up the gadgets in accordance with their labels. Place your bedroom smart light in the socket inside your new bedroom. Set up your kitchen equipment in the kitchen area, your media equipment in the living room area and so forth. Because we typically talk to our smart homes in terms of room and functionality, technically being in a new home with the same sort of rooms still is effective.

If all goes well, you'll not need to reassign the gadget categories and clever smart routines.


If you have currently set up a smart home and may be moving to Denver shortly, moving your smart residence is astonishingly straightforward. All you must do is be certain that all of the settings function exactly the same inside your new place. And as soon as your smart devices are back in position with your favorite helpful AI assistant, the new place will feel like home.
