Moving Your Smart Home

Moving Your Smart HomeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to another place in Tulsa and Oklahoma City might be a anxious time. You box up everything you own and move it to a wholly new location. A great way we make a different house in Tulsa and Oklahoma City seem much more like home is to put up our beloved items. Household furniture that's traveled with you from place to place, window coverings, as well as pictures all help to make a location feel more welcoming. Yet what should you do with your smart home?

Lots of people assume that if they move to Tulsa and Oklahoma City, their smart home must be completely re-set up in the new place. Naturally, it is really an all-new group of spaces having new sockets and light fixtures. And they will need to connect to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Correct? Remarkably, this isn't a fact. If you're one of the many people who has built an enjoyably reactive smart home from bulbs and also clever gadgets, it can be easier to move your smart home than you might think.

Here's how to make it work:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Gadgets by Room

3.Set up by Labels

Keep Your Wi-Fi Network in the Move to Tulsa and Oklahoma City

The first thing you will need is to take care of your Wi-Fi network. You could be thinking about your Wi-Fi as a component of your web service, that's location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a separate thing, and it links all of your residence gadgets. It comes from the Wi-Fi router, which includes network ports along with an antenna.

Smart gizmos connect with this router and the name you gave your local network for instance "Jones Home Internet". If you utilize the identical router and keep an identical network name, your smart home structure (hubs included) should promptly hook up in the new spot.

Label Your Devices by Room and Name

The next step is to retain how your gizmos are used by room. When you use smart lights, for instance, you probably have them intuitively marked. Stuff like "Kitchen Light" and "Bedroom Light". As you pack up these light bulbs (and don't neglect to change out bulbs and bring your smart bulbs along with you!), tag them with whatever their name is in your smart home app.

An identical concept is true for all named smart devices. You can keep them arranged the very same way you have them grouped now, likely by room. Using this method, you are providing a guideline for yourself when reinstalling your smart home in the new home. Instead of finding yourself with a jumble that ought to be renamed and assigned to work once more.

Abide by Your Own Instructions

Lastly, follow the instructions you left for yourself when you get to the new residence. First of all, get the internet plan ready. Set up your very own Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was set up previously so that your device settings are all still correct and do not have to be reset.

Following, set up the equipment based on their tags. Put your bedroom smart light inside the socket in your new bedroom. Set up your kitchen devices in the kitchen area, your media gadgets in the family room and so forth. Given that we generally speak to our smart houses in regards to room and function, theoretically having a whole new home having the same sort of areas still works out.

When everything goes well, you will not even need to reassign the device categories and clever smart routines.


Should you have presently set up a smart residence and may be moving to Tulsa and Oklahoma City soon, moving your smart home is surprisingly easy. All that you need to do is make sure all the settings work similarly in your new home. And after your smart gadgets are back set up with your beloved hospitable AI helper, the new house will feel just like home.
