Quality equipment, superior configuration

Audiovisual technology of today has transformed our lives and require a reliable network to perform properly. Gone are the days when you could visit an electronics store, buy the necessary networking equipment and set it up using the default settings. We install networking components from partners like Ruckus, Dell, and Cisco to bring you the best quality network solution. But that’s just the first step. Having high quality equipment is not enough. The efficiency and strength of a professionally integrated network is what sets a home system from ACS apart. We’ll eliminate disruptions and interference from other networks; program your network to prioritize different activities like streaming movies and downloading music, so all of your favorite activities remain uninterrupted.

Secure, reliable and robust

A hard-wired network is more secure and we recommend that it be business grade. There’s invisible protection built into the way the network is designed. We can further protect your home network by building you a guest network that prohibits access to other devices. Your entire network is protected without undo interruption. The network is there when you need it and can deal with increased capacity during parties and holiday gatherings. Whether you’re streaming your favorite Netflix sitcom on a tablet or your kids are finishing homework on their laptops a robust network supports all these activities so everyone gets what they want no matter where in the house they are at. In addition, we’ll proactively monitor the system so we know when there’s an issue before the homeowner does. These alerts keep the equipment performing and in turn last longer.

Why Upgrading Your Home Network Matters

Having problems with home network lagging? ACS, the factory authorized and trained dealer and installer of the finest A/V, Lighting Control, Motorized Shading, Home Integration and Network equipment has the solution.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all developed an expectation to be wirelessly connected at all times. Everywhere we go, we look for updates on our smart phone, tablet or iPad, all while working on our laptop. We use these devices to access today’s vast array of digital media such as streaming music, HD video, or even accessing our home integration and security while away.

At the heart of today’s residences, a well-engineered secure wireless and wired network is essential.  As we continue to depend less on traditional entertainment sources (radio, CD, DVD, cable TV) and more on cloud-based entertainment (internet radio, Pandora, iTunes, Netflix, AppleTV, and others), along with Gaming, Remote Access to Work, and everyday on-line activities, a faster, more secure and dependable home network is essential.

High-bandwidth devices place increased pressure on home networks. To meet these requirements, service providers are delivering advancements in internet speeds, but many home networks aren’t equipped to make use of the speeds they offer. Technology evolves at such a rapid pace that we have to evolve with it or get left behind. Our homes need a strong network to meet the demands of the digital age.

Looked at another way; consumer networks were never meant to handle the high demands of the audio/video components currently used in modern homes or businesses. The results being unacceptable WiFi performance, data loss, constant reboots, product failure, and the always-annoying customer service phone calls to internet providers. ACS fixes that by providing industry-leading technology that combines wired/wireless data and IP power with local and cloud-based management.
