I figured we are not the only people in the world with this issue, so I thought I would share some helpful tips on how we make our Wi-Fi a little stronger in our home – especially in parts that are further away from the router.
We had a problem with slow Wi-Fi connectivity at our last house too, so we actually received and set-up Samsung’s first mesh Wi-Fi and smart home hub and fell in love. Well, turns out connectivity has been even tougher here at our new home, probably just because it’s a little bigger. But it’s a pain because it messes with baby monitors, streaming, work and everything else. SO we ended up upgrading to the new Samsung SmartThings Wifi mesh network system and ta-da problem solved yet again.
Anyways, so what the heck am I talking about? Because let me be honest, this is almost above my head as well – but Marcus is totally into it so we really owe all the credit to him. So let’s talk about Samsung’s latest and greatest SmartThings Wifi.
The updated version has a new Plume integration (a smart network that is capable of adapting in real time to optimize the performance of our other connected devices) and is easily controlled using the SmartThings app, making it really simple to set-up and use around the house!
Basically, (and I asked Marcus to help me explain this because again, not tech savvy) – our SmartThings Wifi consists of three little hubs that ping off of your main router (or spot of internet). You can place them in different parts of the house so that they work off each other and give stronger internet in those areas of the house that might struggle a little bit! At least this is how we use them and love them.
They’re so easy to set up – Marcus just used his phone and they work great and our internet is so much better. I mean honestly – it just makes my life easier when one, using our cameras around the house and our Ring (they run way better) and two, Netflix is a serious lifesaver for me when it’s 5AM and Blake is up and ready to party. I mean, judge me or not – but I’m all about throwing that on and sleeping another hour. Really, what parent isn’t? HA
You can grab them here. comes in a three pack and is great! Happy Wi-Fing 😉
