Home Relocation

Posted on Home Relocation

Home Relocation – what do you do after you move house and need to connect all your computer and audio/visual equipment back together?

 

Moving house is an exciting but also stressful experience. Packing carefully, making sure you label your boxes so you know where to put everything at the other end. But when it’s time to unpack the computer, printer, router, TV, Xbox, DVD player, amplifier, etc. you have a whole bunch of equipment and a whole bunch of cables to connect everything up. You have to decide where you’re going to place everything and how it’s all going to work. After moving in all the big stuff, it’s another headache you just don’t need for your home relocation.

This is where we come in. We can advise on optimum placement of all your computer and audio/visual equipment and we can make sense of all those cables and how to connect them all up for you, so your home relocation can go as smoothly as possible.

 

Here is a quick checklist of things to consider for your computer equipment:

  • Do you need a separate space for your computer? Will it need to go in a separate study or a common area?
  • Does your premises have data points that can be used?
  • What type of broadband will you be on? ADSL2, VDSL2 or NBN?
  • Will you be able to keep the same phone number and/or ISP?
  • Your modem/router should be as close as possible to the telephone socket or data entry point
  • Is your modem/router Wi-Fi capable? Will it be located in a central location in your new premises?
  • Where will you put your printer? This will depend on if it’s Wi-Fi capable or not
  • If you are a gamer or listen to music from your PC, you will need to consider speaker placement
  • If your computer needs to be a long way from your router, or even on another floor, you will need a Wi-Fi range extender

 

Here is a quick checklist of things to consider for your audio/visual equipment:

  •  You will need to consider the placement of your TV before anything else in your living area
  • Most modern A/V equipment is network capable so you need to make sure that you can connect your devices to your network
  • Speaker placement. Subwoofers work best in a corner on the floor as low frequencies tend to reflect quite well. High frequency and surround speakers need line of sight to be most effective, so they need to be mounted on stands or even from the ceiling in a corner. Centre speakers need to be placed near the TV as they tend to handle most of the middle range frequencies including dialogue, especially when watching movies

  • Modem/Router

    • Power

    • Telephone if it has a fax facility
