Home networks might seem like they're simple, but they're not. Smartphones are simple to use, but the technology behind them is very complicated. The fact is that we depend on a lot of technology in our daily lives, and for the most part, it's simple to use. But when it doesn't work, most of us need to seek out an expert to fix it.
The truth is that home networking is sophisticated technology. It is wrapped up in electronics like routers, modems, switches and WAPs that we plug in and give us access to the internet, and beyond setting up passwords, we don't have to do that much with it. We do depend on this complex technology daily, and with the proliferation of ever more smart devices and functionality in the home, even more so. Chances are you probably don't know how many smart devices you have in your home connecting to each other and the internet – we're so used to it by now that we don't think about it. But all those smart devices can put a strain on your network. If your network is straining from the load, you'll start noticing when smart lights don't work, your smart thermostat doesn't adjust automatically, and your video streams stutter and buffer, or the app crashes.
If you have a smaller house and not that many dependencies on internet access, you may get by with the standard setup provided by your internet provider or a router from your local big box store or an internet retailer. But if you want a fully integrated smart home where your AV components are centrally controlled, your motorized shades, smart lights, and smart thermostats work in concert, and you have multiple spaces with access to high resolution video, you likely need something more robust than the average setup.
Why might you want a professional – like Bravo AV – to perform an updated home network installation at your New Jersey home in the Chester area? Read on to see what the difference is.

Many businesses and industries have licensing and certification requirements. For example, you want to hire a licensed electrician or plumber, as that is a requirement in most states. Professionals like architects have similar requirements, having to pass an exam as well as having completed the minimum set of educational qualifications. In other professions, like interior design, requirements for licensing may vary, but there are professional organizations that have requirements for membership, assuring prospective clients of a minimum set of qualifications.
In the audio-visual and technology integration businesses, requirements also vary. For certain types of work – like electrical – there are specific licenses required, but not for other work. As in other professions, there are organizations where membership requirements separate professional organizations from others who may not have invested the time and money into developing a strong skill set. You may be surprised to learn that home technology integration is a business with few barriers to entry – almost anyone can hang a shingle and call themselves an expert.
Bravo AV has chosen to become a member of the Home Technology Association (HTA). HTA is the industry’s only certification body that has a rigorous set of standards – over 60 criterion – that a company needs to meet to be HTA-certified.
Bravo AV is proud to provide HTA-certified home automation services for home technology projects throughout Morristown and Northern New Jersey – from Savant home control systems to home theater installations and beyond. Read on to find out how that makes us different when you are searching for home automation integration providers for your next project.

An often-overlooked part of any home is its network.
You might have dozens of Internet-connected technologies throughout your house – from 4K UHD Smart TVs to high-performance computers and more.

With a team of professionals working to ensure your home network infrastructure is robust and secure, you can enjoy the best performance from your devices the moment you begin using them.
