Moving Your Smart Home

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

Moving to a new home in El Paso is usually a jarring time. You load up all that you own and move it into a altogether different place. One of the ways we make a different house in El Paso become more like home is to put up our beloved items. Your furniture that's traveled with you from home to home, draperies, and also decorations all make a location seem more comfortable. But what should you do with your smart home?

Many people believe that if they move to El Paso, their smart home will have to be entirely re-set up in the new place. Naturally, it is really an all-new set of spaces along with new outlets and light fixtures. And they'll need to hook up to a totally new Wi-Fi network. Correct? Shockingly, it's not a fact. If you're one of the many people who has produced an enjoyably reactive smart home using lights along with neat gadgets, it can be simpler to move your smart home than you might think.

Here's how to make it happen:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Devices by Room

3.Set up by Labels

Keep Your Wi-Fi Network during the Move to El Paso

The very first thing you'll need will be to maintain your Wi-Fi network. You may be looking at your Wi-Fi as a portion of your internet service, that's location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different element, and it attaches all of your household gadgets. It comes from a Wi-Fi router, that has network ports and an antenna.

Smart devices connect to this router plus the moniker you gave your local network like "Johnson Home Internet". Should you use the very same router and keep the same network label, your smart home system (hubs included) will be able to promptly reconnect in the new place.

Label Your Devices by Room and Name

The next phase is to preserve the way your gizmos are employed by room. If you are using smart lights, to illustrate, you most likely have them intuitively labeled. Stuff like "Kitchen Light" or "Bedroom Light". As you pack up these bulbs (and don't neglect to trade out bulbs and take your smart bulbs with you!), tag them with whatever their title is in your smart home app.

An identical procedure applies for all titled smart gizmos. You can keep them classified the identical manner by which you've got them classified now, probably by room. In this way, you will be leaving a plan for yourself when reinstalling your smart home within the new spot. As opposed to finding yourself with a mess which needs to be relabeled and also assigned to be useful once again.

Follow Your Own Instructions

Finally, refer to the instructions you created for yourself when you get to the new residence. To begin with, get the internet plan ready. Set up your own Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was put together before so the device configurations are all still correct and do not require to be reset.

Subsequently, set up the devices in line with their tags. Put your bedroom smart light inside the socket in the new bedroom. Set up your kitchen units in the kitchen area, your media units in the living room area and so forth. Given that we generally speak to our smart houses with respect to room and function, technically being in a whole new house having the same types of rooms still is effective.

Provided everything goes successfully, you'll not even have to reassign the device categories and nifty smart routines.


For those who have currently set up a smart house and will be moving to El Paso soon, moving your smart house is surprisingly simple. All that you need to do is be certain that all the settings work exactly the same in the new residence. And after your smart gizmos are back in place with your beloved hospitable AI helper, the new house will certainly feel just like home.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
