Take These 4 Steps Before Making Your House a Smart Home

From  of Time.com:  Companies selling smart home products are quick to say how easy it is to connect their devices to the Internet. And while most of the time they’re correct, they are sidestepping a big, thorny pitfall: namely, your home’s wireless network. Over the past year and a half, I’ve been working on turning my house into smart home, and have learned that nothing is more important — and infuriating — than my house’s Wi-Fi.
 
Here are four lessons I’ve learned so far:
1. Be smart about where you put your Wi-Fi router.
2. There are no great ways to extend the range of your home’s Wi-Fi.
3. Hard-wiring your home is easier than you may think.
4. Power is a problem.
