How Can Your Home Enjoy a Stronger Connection?
Here at Digitech Custom Audio Video, we enjoy surrounding ourselves with the wonders of modern technology. We’re excited about everything happening in our clients’ homes in the Hamilton County, Indiana area and beyond, not to mention the incredible innovation we saw at CES in Las Vegas earlier this month. But none of these trends could manifest without a robust home network installation.
Strategic networking might not seem as glamorous as rollable TVs or AI-enabled devices, but a strong connection speeds up lagging smart homes and keeps your smart technology operating at its best. Keep reading to see what Digitech Custom does to ensure that your connected home runs smoothly, no matter how many devices you’re using.

What We Use
Control4’s Pakedge equipment, our choice for home network installation gear, is designed to power A/V and automation systems. Our devices include high-powered chipsets to allow for incredibly fast speeds, even in congested multi-application smart home networks, while our innovative features help to prioritize lag-sensitive multimedia and video traffic, facilitate installation and management, and speed up overall network performance. We also coordinate with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to ensure you have the ideal amount of bandwidth available at your property.
How Routers Fail
Routers are considered the catch-all solution for improving network performance, but many homeowners don’t consider their limited reach. For example, most routers only cover 150 feet, so clients with extensive homes should consider some additional wiring to increase coverage throughout their house. Keep reading to see what we suggest.
Consider Wiring Some Devices
An all-wireless system, reliant on routers and range extenders, can fail customers. While it requires more work initially, hardwiring wireless access points throughout the home always results in higher network speed and performance, handling complex network information with ease. Not to mention, it fulfills the need for full coverage without network gaps. Finding those ideal locations for wireless access involves an expert installer like Digitech Custom, but you can control them post-installation with access point controllers.
Best of all, we make these installations look entirely seamless. Take a look at some of our behind-the-scenes work here.
3G, 4G and 5G Wireless Support
The fastest, most capable network we’ve seen to date, 5G connects smart homes with top efficiency and remarkably low latency. 5G is loosely defined as the fifth wave of network technology – the impetus that drives automated cars, lightning-speed smart homes, smart communities and more.
5G technology will secure a future of smart home functions, and we’ve been learning how to implement 5G in smart homes since its inception. Even though only a few communities have rolled out 5G, we can’t wait to accelerate Hamilton County and Central Indiana homes very soon. In the meantime, we also work to speed up wireless 3G and 4G networks, which power the majority of wirelessly connected smart homes.
While it’s always important to have fast internet speeds, but that doesn’t do our customers much good unless that speedy service is also secure. Digitech Custom installs firewall protection to protect all your information from cybercriminals. We also recommend guest networks to further enhance your privacy.
