A search for the best home network on the internet can feel a bit like falling into a rabbit hole. The internet in itself can become a maze of information. Every search leads to the access point of another. Those access points of information seemingly become endless. A never-ending labyrinth of knowledge. In fact, a few key lines from Alice in Wonderland come to mind.
“The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.”
Rabbits have diligent purpose as they create their maze of tunnels. Knowing which trail to follow requires expertise. If you choose the wrong tunnel, you may go deeper than expected as Alice did. Down she fell. After all, she wasn’t a rabbit. She didn’t have the expertise.
“Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.”
Our expert team at Synergy Integrated Systems strives to keep you from falling. Ultimately, our goal is to keep you from losing yourself in the tunnels altogether. We aim to catch you from the beginning to ease your path. With us, you needn’t wonder what shall happen next. We do have the expertise.
How Does a Home Network Work?
To keep you far from sinking into the dark tunnels of home network mazes, consider first how a home network works. Then, we’ll review some wired and wireless device information that helps you navigate the wonderful, wide world of a wireless network.
We’ll start with simplicity. A home network involves more than one computer that you wish to connect. By connecting these devices, they can then communicate. Next, you need hardware and software that coordinates the exchange of information between connected devices. This is often in the form of a router and applications built into the operating system. Finally, you need a path in place for the information to follow from one computer to the other.
To break it down even further, consider a wheel with spokes. Initially, you need a core device that is the hub for wired and wireless devices throughout your home. It’s akin to the hub of the wheel. This hub is the core of your wireless network. It allows each spoke of the wheel access to multiple devises that are wired and wireless. All connected devices communicate with the hub as spokes within the wheel itself. Information radiates from the hub to your multiple devices.
More often than not, an external internet connection is necessary. With that in place, you can access information from your internet service provider. Once properly tied into your overall system, each of your connected devices can use the internet system as well.
The more you add, the more complicated it gets. A home network can begin to feel like a maze in itself. But, don’t worry, our team handles that labyrinth and guides you through every step of the way. You may be lost in wonder but we certainly won’t allow you to get lost in Wonderland!
Phrases to Help Navigate the Rabbit Holes
Now that you have a very basic idea of home network setup, it helps to fully understand a few key phrases that will come up. Some may seem simple, and even intuitive, but having an actual definition ensures everyone is on the same page.
Here are some definitions for quick reference if you need it:
Router – When referring to computers, a router is a piece of hardware or software having a specific IP address and connected to network nodes for the transfer of data between computers.
Wireless Network – A wireless network is a system of devices using radio waves or the like to communicate, as opposed to cables.
Wi-Fi Network – A Wi-Fi network is simply an abbreviation of wireless network.
Wireless – In the dictionary, this simply means “having no wires.” When used to describe a computer network, it refers to a wireless network.
Wired or Cable – While these are two of the words that seem pretty easy to understand, consider the exact definition in the dictionary: “an insulated wire or wires having a protective casing and used for transmitting electricity or telecommunication signals.”
Wireless Connection – This refers to the actual data connection between network nodes that transfer information without wires.
Wifi – Typically written as Wi-Fi, this refers to wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless network connections. Contrary to popular belief, Wifi is not short for “wireless fidelity.”
Wi-Fi Device (or wireless devices) – Based on wireless technology, a Wi-Fi device is simply any device capable of communicating via wireless means. For instance, laptops, Smart TVs, smartphones, etc. are some examples of wireless devices.
Wi-Fi Signal – Wi-Fi signals travel on radio waves at set frequencies.
Wireless Router – The device that receives the wireless signal and decodes it. A wireless router is necessary to provide access to the internet or a private compute network.
Internet – While we all have a general idea of what the internet is, it’s helpful to have it put into an exact definition. The Google dictionary defines the internet as: “a global computer network providing a variety of information and communication facilities, consisting of interconnected networks using standardized communication protocols.”
Internet Service Provider – Also known as a service provider, this one is easy. It’s simply a company that provides subscribers access to the internet.
Wi-fi Speeds – Measured in megabits per seconds, Wi-Fi speeds refer to the rate that data travels between devices.
Wi-Fi Protected Access – Also referred to as WPA, the Wi-Fi Alliance created Wi-Fi Protected Access to secure wireless computer networks.
Ethernet – An ethernet is a system used to connect multiple computers and to control the passing of information to avoid simultaneous transmissions.
Ethernet Ports – The port is the socket on a device where you plug in an ethernet cable.
Gigabyte Ethernet – Based on the technology of Ethernet, a Gigabit Ethernet is used in LANs to transmit ethernet frames at 1 Gbps.
LAN – Local area network, which is a computer network that links devices within a building or group of adjacent buildings.
Modem – Short for modulater-demodulator, a modem allows a computer or other device to connect to the internet.
Wired Network – A system of devices tethered by wires or cables that provide communication between devices.
What is the Best Home Network Setup?
Whether you have a wired network or operate solely on wireless connection, your initial setup is critical. Your choices are wired, wireless or a combination of both. To determine what is best for you, let’s consider advantages and disadvantages of your options.
The first advantages of a wired network are higher Wi-Fi speeds and reliability. This is why many businesses opt for wired as opposed to wireless altogether. Since wired connections are less prone to radio interference, they tend to work when you need them. Likewise, wired networks have more generous bandwidth caps, which means that you can transmit more data. Enhanced security and the ability to connect over long distances are additional advantages.
While a wired network is more secure in some cases, there are a few downsides. For instance, cables and wires are unsightly and sometimes difficult to manage. These wires are also open to interference from one another and this issue must be addressed by a professional. Additionally, lack of mobility makes expansion difficult. Plus, a fully-wired network tends to take more time to install and troubleshoot.
On the other hand, wireless networks have advantages as well. Increased mobility is key in a wireless network. In a business situation, the ability to physically move without losing connection increases productivity. In a home, it allows for seamless interfacing. Wireless is also more flexible. You can easily update, expand or meet new configuration requirements. Similarly, installation is less complicated, which results in faster service at less cost.
However, with wireless the Wi-Fi signal occasionally loses quality through walls or obstructions. Plus, interference can occur on the radio waves the Wi-Fi signal follows. These signals are also more open to hacking as anyone nearby can access your signal. For safety, you must make sure that your system is Wi-Fi-protected. While Wi-Fi speeds are a bit slower than wired, new technology alleviates this issue considerably.
Often, home network setup requires a mixture of wired and wireless. This process begins with structured wiring.
Solutions in Structured Wiring
Another potential rabbit hole is understanding structured wiring. Structured wiring is the foundation on which your home communication and entertainment network is built. A well-planned structure is critical to the performance of your home’s network.
For premium data transfer rates and seamless integration, it’s imperative to have an experienced professional install your structured wiring. Our team at Synergy Integrated Systems has years of experiencing designing and organizing connective technologies. We customize our systems to each home and client. We take the time to specifically tailor your system to your needs.
Moreover, we provide seamless installation. Wires running throughout your home aren’t aesthetically pleasing. We embed technology so that it blends into the design of your house.

In addition to structured wiring, we build reliable wireless networks. In today’s modern home, this is vital. We create a system that is stable, strong and secure. Therefore, you can enjoy your laptops, tablets, smartphones and smart home devices worry-free.

” I was very hesitant initially that the system would be too complicated as I’m not very good with electronics, but the system you installed is so easy to use and I can’t imagine life without it. The music sounds wonderful and it is so easy to turn on a DVD with only the push of a button. But my favorite feature is the night button that turns all the lights off from my bedside table. Both Matt and Aaron were great to work with and I really appreciate their attention to detail.”
– JUNE, CARY, NC

Fortuitously, it is not. In fact, that is exactly what our team at Synergy Integrated Systems strives toward. Essentially, our smart home systems actually anticipate what makes you the most comfortable. Whether you want the heat to kick on before waking or arriving home, we make it happen. Similarly, you can program shades and curtains to open and close based on temperature or time of day.

Decades ago, Simon & Garfunkel created a truly beautiful medley of sound that echoes through our speakers to this day. Of course, the deeper meaning of their music wasn’t simply about the Sound of Silence. However, their words channel the soul best when you experience them resoundingly and loudly. Truly, to achieve full immersion, you need a quality home audio system that flows throughout your home. Therefore, if you’re yearning for more than just the sound of silence, Synergy Integrated Systems brings music to your ears. In fact, we move far beyond that directive by providing customization and control for the best experience possible.
Finding a Premium Home Audio System
Clearly, we’ve begged a couple of questions. First, what is the best home audio system? Generally, this isn’t a one-size-fits all answer.

Notably, you can channel and control quality music within any room in your house. Therefore, we customize installation to match each individual need of our customers in the Raleigh to Wilmington area and beyond.

In fact, about the only difficult part of the process is choosing among all the home automation installation possibilities. To help you make it through that first step, consider the opportunities technology offers to enhance your home.
Top 6 Devices that Smart Home Technology Controls

Home Automation installation Options
Occasionally, homeowners wonder if they can install smart home devices themselves. After all, some individual products are relatively user friendly. However, that’s a key phrase – individual products. Many systems on the market such as doorbells with cameras and lighting control work great on their own. Unfortunately, many don’t work together. Attempting to align these products is a task in itself. Moreover, if you need technical expertise, you often find yourself stuck on the phone waiting for help. At Synergy, you will always have the same core team working on your custom solutions. Consequently, you will always be able to reach someone knowledgeable about your project when you call.
Ultimately, you need a professional to automate your systems to create a truly smart home that fulfills multiple requirements. At Synergy, we provide home control systems from Crestron, ELAN and URC Total Control. Additionally, we have a NEST certified professional on staff.
Better yet, you can control many of our systems on one, universal device. In fact, the new ELAN 8 integrates voice control through Amazon Alexa as well. This eliminates the need to have multiple apps and control switches to manage your connected home.
Of course, all this fabulous technology begs the question: how much does it cost to install home automation? Essentially, the short answer is as little, or as much, as you want it to depending on the scope of your project. Local to the Raleigh area, Synergy offers an extensive line of products to meet your budget. Furthermore, we provide a free consultation to go over options and pricing. In fact, we will customize your home automation to adjust to your financial needs as well.

As technology improves, smart devices are popping up in homes across the globe. Not only do they provide an extra level of control for lighting and the like, they’re simply fun to use. However, that level of fun decreases a bit when these smart devices don’t work in tandem. For instance, one remote switches lighting level, while you must find another device to adjust sound. Perhaps, your smartphone connects to security. Then, another panel regulates exterior tasks. Eventually, keeping up with all of these different devices gets frustrating. At that point, it’s time to start thinking about home automation systems that integrate many of your control areas.
Types of Home Automation Systems
Initially, let’s consider all the systems that you can control in your home and narrow it down from there. In fact, you may be surprised at all the things home automation systems can do. Not only can you alter lighting and audio, you can manage other settings as well.
From inside your home or across the world, turn heating and cooling up or down and save on utilities. Likewise, lower or raise shades at will. Better yet, schedule it. Similarly, program landscape lighting and sprinkling systems to turn on. Or, warm up the spa and remove the automated cover so it’s ready and waiting for you! Furthermore, manage security features remotely. Lock doors and check on your home whenever you wish.
Synergy Integrated Systems offers these options and more with the innovative systems we offer. From Crestron to ELAN, these home automation systems make home control as easy as a touch of a button. In fact, the newest ELAN 8 software eliminates the need for multiple control panels and apps. When you wish to entertain or simply relax, the last thing you want to do is fumble for a device.
User Interfaces – With the approach of a hand, in-wall touch panels wake from sleep. Instantaneously, a seven-button keypad offers one touch access.
System Controllers – Coupled with brains and beauty, ELAN’s elegant controllers include the flagship gSC10 to the media room-ready g1.
Multi-Room Audio Video – Enjoy unprecedented multi-room control with the UltraMatrix™ series of A/V controllers. With the ability to carry HDMI, Ethernet, serial and IR signals, you get everything you need with a single cable.
4K HDMI Solutions – Finally, enjoy seamless, smart integration with true 4K HDMI solutions. Included are matrices, splitters, switchers, extenders and AV over IP. Plus, amps and surveillance incorporate into your system.
After feeling the excitement of all the great options home automation offers, minds tend to wander to installation cost. Fortunately, Synergy helps with that as well. Essentially, the final price depends on the scope of your project, equipment and devices you choose. To make it easier, we offer a free consultation to go over your budget and desires. During this time, we’ll help you narrow down your wish list. Or, expand it. Ultimately, it’s up to you. Moreover, we provide a fixed-price estimate. This is imperative to avoid unexpected costs.
Additionally, we believe in healthy competition. In the end, it serves us all well. With that in mind, Synergy provides non-compiled code of the system programming we write to each of our customers.

Although it may seem like a complex and confusing topic to understand, home automation is actually helping to simplify lives. What once seemed like a futuristic fantasy has become a realistic option that all homeowners now have the opportunity to enjoy. In this day and age, smart technology plays an integral part in the infrastructure of a home, and automation has become a feature that every household should embrace.
How Does Home Automation Work?
Home automation is designed to give homeowners complete control over the various devices and systems in their home, regardless of where the homeowner is located. This means you can access everything from your lights, appliances, and entertainment systems to your thermostats, sprinklers, and security equipment from anywhere in the house or anywhere in the world through your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Automation will allow you to specifically program each device that’s connected to the network to follow your commands as desired. There are endless possibilities for ways you can use your system to make your life better overall.
Why Automation is a Must-Have Feature in Every Home
There are numerous reasons to install a home automation system. Here are some of the top benefits of having an automated home:
Convenience: There are probably many repetitive tasks you do around the house on a daily basis. Things like turning on your irrigation system, making a pot of coffee, and dimming the lights to watch your favorite TV shows can all be programmed to automatically happen with the simple push of a button when you have home automation.
Energy Savings: If you’re like most homeowners, there’s a good chance you spend quite a bit on utilities every month. This amount can be reduced substantially with home automation, since it allows you to turn lights off in unoccupied rooms or when you run out of the house and accidentally leave them on. You will also be able to adjust the thermostat accordingly when no one is home, or at bedtime, when you lower the temperature every night. You can also ensure that the house will be warm (or cool) when you arrive home.
Increased Home Security: Connecting your smart door locks, burglar alarm, surveillance cameras, and motion sensor lights to your automation network will significantly increase the safety and security of your home. You can make sure the doors are locked after you’ve left for the day and monitor your property any time of the day or night to be sure no one is lurking around.
Peace of Mind: Automation will give you peace of mind that your property and family are protected, even if you’re miles away. You can keep a close eye on things from any remote location as long as you have a mobile device and an internet connection.
