Fairfax, Va., Home Transformed into a Smart Home
Our client owns a gorgeous 3,500-square-foot, single family residence nestled in the suburban Fairfax, VA, community. They desired to upgrade the technology in their residence to transform it into a smart home. Inside, the family wanted to manage his environment with a programmable thermostat, smoke and CO detectors. For the exterior, they wanted to enhance the family’s outdoor experience with music on the patio and deck area that could be controlled from their smartphones. To further increase comfort and convenience, they wanted garage door openers and enhanced security.
The problem they faced was that the wireless network on the property was inadequate to reach the far points of the home, in particular the back patio and deck area. There were significant coverage issues and difficulty in connecting devices to the network from the various points around the property.
The OLEX Group designed a customer-focused solution to address the infrastructure and technology obstacles. First, we fixed wireless network configuration issues and extended the wireless network throughout the home and outdoor areas. We configured and installed the Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, Nest Indoor Cameras, and MyQ Genie garage door opener. We installed outdoor speakers that provide high quality music integrated with their Sonos system.
Now the home is secured and protected with security cameras and smoke/CO detectors. Their energy costs are reduced with the Nest Thermostat. Most of all, they get more enjoyment from their patio and deck areas to entertain family and friends with the new outdoor speakers.
