In this day and age, it’s important to stay connected. Whether it’s your home or office, we have the expertise to install and configure various levels of networking. From a basic peer-to-peer network to a server-based network, proper planning and installation are key to a well-secured and efficient operating system.
Resource sharing, wireless access points, firewall protection, internet access, and file storage are all components to a well-designed computer network.
In today's "Internet of Things", your WiFi connection and network become the integration point for dozens of applications and electronics. Don't rely on old router technology to be your breaking point.
What is WiFi?
Wireless internet or connectivity, or WiFi, is the technology that gives you the ability to wirelessly connect multiple devices to your personal wireless network or any WiFi hotspot.
WiFi allows local area networks (LANs) to operate without cables and wiring, making it a popular choice for home and business networks. WiFi can also be used to provide wireless broadband Internet access for many devices, such as laptops, smartphones, tablet computers, and electronic gaming consoles. An efficient home network is the backbone to productivity and a top SaaviHome priority.
What is Ethernet?
WiFi alone is subject to interference that a hard-wired ethernet connection will help to avoid. Ethernet will always offer a more reliable connection than WiFi, and it's usually worth running a hardwired connection to stationary devices in the home that are frequently used: office computers, gaming and media devices, backup devices, etc.
Ethernet is the standard way to connect computers and other devices on a network over a hardwired connection, and with wired Ethernet, interference and dropped connection shouldn’t be an issue. Without interference, your Internet is less likely to experience slowdowns, disconnections, or intermittent connection. In a world where so many homes have become offices, a hardwire connection has massive benefits when it comes to transferring/emailing large data files while the kids are in the other room playing video games.
What is a Wireless Access Point? (WAP)
WiFi technology has improved greatly in recent years, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Large homes and offices with heavy traffic typically utilize WiFi access points (WAP).
An access point is a device that creates a Wireless Local Area Network, or WLAN, for wireless coverage across large spaces. An access point connects to a wired router via an Ethernet cable and projects a WiFi signal to a designated area. For example, if you want to enable WiFi access in your basement or rooftop patio but don’t have a router within range, you can install an access point in your home office and run an Ethernet cable through the ceiling back to the server room.
Each access point can handle over 60 simultaneous connections. By installing access points throughout the home or office, users can move from room to room without experiencing network interruptions. Devices shift seamlessly from one access point to the next without dropping the connection—you won’t even realize you’re switching between networks.
For adequate WiFi coverage across any space, SaaviHome recommends 1 WAP per 1500 square feet.
Which connection is best for my home or office?
There’s no reason your home or office can’t have both WiFi and Ethernet. Many spaces may still need a hardwired connection to handle heavy-duty operations, while providing WiFi for users to connect to the network without plugging in. Ultimately, Ethernet still performs better than WiFi for heavy data loads, and your home or business can take advantage of WiFi improvements as they become the new industry standard.

Dusty was our install technician and was extremely professional, knowledgeable and cared about the install from start to finish.
