Wired vs Wireless Smart Homes - Which option's best?

Updated: Nov 22, 2022

Wired smart home solutions used to be the only option for anyone wanting automation in their home.This type of home automation uses large amounts of cat-6 wiring throughout the home to facilitate connection.

With the development of new technology from the worlds largest tech companies a new option has presented itself. Wireless solutions have a multitude of additional benefits when comparing to traditional systems; below are the biggest differences:

Infrastructure: Server Room v One Shelf

In traditional smart homes, a full room of your home would be required in order to house the wiring and server that would allow you to control your home.

Modern technology has allowed us to require minimal space to operate your smart home, typically 1 shelf.

Value: Smaller Cost, with Greater Functionality

Wireless smart homes require significantly less hardware and maintenance. With consistent updates, and easily accessible support, wireless options are easier, and more affordable to maintain, without sacrificing on any functionality.

Future Proof: Proprietary vs Open

Your home will be one of the biggest investments you ever make, and adding wireless technology adds immense value. Our systems are all open, meaning you are able to add, remove and change whatever you like, with support from anyone. You are never locked in to any proprietary system.

Performance: Low Latency

Both systems have extremely low latency, meaning you will never be waiting on an automation.

Security: Highly Secure

Both systems are highly secure. Despite requiring less physical space, all data is still stored locally within your house. This means that there is no possible way for interference from unauthorized people outside of your home.
