Moving Your Smart Home

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

Moving to another house in Tulsa might be a jarring time. You pack up whatever you own and move it into a completely new place. A great way we make a different house in Tulsa become more like home is to set up our preferred things. Furniture that has traveled with you from house to house, draperies, and pictures all help make a space feel more pleasing. However what about your smart home?

Lots of people believe that once they move to Tulsa, their smart home will have to be entirely re-set up in the different place. After all, it is an all-new multitude of areas having different plugins and light fixtures. And they're going to need to connect to a completely new Wi-Fi network. Correct? Surprisingly, this isn't correct. If you're one of the numerous individuals who has built an enjoyably reactive smart home out of light bulbs and neat gadgets, it can be simpler to move your smart home than you may realize.

Here's how to accomplish it:

1. Wi-Fi

2.Gadgets by Room

3.Install by Labels

Maintain Your Wi-Fi Network in the Move to Tulsa

The first thing you will need is to take care of your Wi-Fi network. You might be thinking about your Wi-Fi as a portion of your web service, that's location-based. Your Wi-Fi network is a different element, and it connects every one of your residence gizmos. It comes from a Wi-Fi router, that has network ports as well as an antenna.

Smart gadgets connect to this router plus the label you gave your local network such as "Smith Household Internet". If you utilize the identical router and maintain an identical network title, your smart home structure (hubs included) will be able to promptly reconnect in the new location.

Tag Your Equipment by Room along with Name

The next task is to preserve the way your gizmos are employed by room. When you use smart lights, for example, you probably have them intuitively marked. Things like "Kitchen Light" and "Bedroom Light". As you pack up these bulbs (and be sure to change out light bulbs and take the smart bulbs with you!), label them with whatever their moniker is in your smart home app.

An identical procedure is true to all titled smart products. Have them grouped the exact same way you've got them grouped now, probably by room. In this way, you are leaving a guideline for yourself in reinstalling your smart home within the new place. As opposed to winding up with a mess that ought to be relabeled and also assigned to function once more.

Follow Your Own Guidance

Ultimately, refer to the instructions you created for yourself once you get to the new home. First of all, get your internet plan ready. Arrange your own Wi-Fi network precisely the way it was established before so that your equipment configurations are still correct and don't need to be reset.

Following, set up the devices according to their labeling. Place your bedroom smart light inside the socket in your new bedroom. Add your kitchen devices in the kitchen space, your media gadgets in the family room and so forth. Given that we generally talk to our smart homes in terms of room and purpose, theoretically getting into a whole new residence having the same types of spaces still works.

If all goes well, you'll not even have to reassign the equipment categories and clever smart routines.


For those who have currently set up a smart household but will be moving to Tulsa in the future, moving your smart residence is surprisingly painless. All that you must do is make sure all the controls work the same way in the new residence. And once your smart gizmos are back in place with your favorite friendly AI assistant, the new residence will certainly feel just like home.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
