Wired Of Wireless

Wired or wireless?
Wireless systems like Zigbee, Z-Wave and conventional Wi-Fi are easy and inexpensive, but they’re subject to roadblocks throughout the house that can impede their signals. Older homes with plaster walls are a particular challenge for wireless systems, as are larger homes with serious distances between floors and rooms.  A wired system is always going to work more reliably, which is is goal #1 for a control system.  If you haven’t built your home yet, consider structured wiring, not only for your IT needs but for expandability into home control.  If whole-home wiring isn’t practical, check into powerline and/or phone line based systems.

This home features a wireless TaHoma system by Somfy which operates via Z-wave.



Style, platform, scalability and cost are just some of the issues to think about when planning your home control system.
