Every commercial automation system boils down to one simple idea: your building should run more efficiently. No matter how complex the design, no matter if you’re working with a completely customized system, you should always be one touch away from achieving your goal. In this blog, we’ll talk about some smart tips you should watch out for when upgrading your technology. Read on to learn more.
When working in any business, multiple people will need access to your system. There are a number of different options available. Here are some of our favorites:
While your system should be easy to access from just about anywhere in your building, all of your technology should exist in a central hub for efficient repair. When your integrator is done racking all of your sources, he should be able to return at a later date and fix any problems immediately. In fact, the best integrators will rack their systems so clearly that, if they’re replaced, the next person you work with should figure it out without a problem.
Though many business owners are tempted by the idea of wireless technology, few find it to be as efficient and reliable as hardwired systems. Wireless often comes with a smaller initial investment that balloons greatly over time. Hardwired systems rarely need repair, and they offer consistent quality for years.
There are plenty of ways to ensure your hardwired system works well, but the most common problem is bandwidth. Many business owners don’t realize that when adding upgraded technology like 4K displays to their company, they also need to replace the cords for a strong signal. Your integrator can determine the proper wiring needed that includes a mix of HDMI and fiber optic cables.
