How to Make Your Home Tech-Savy for the Holidays
From faster wifi to a better security system, here are some beneficial uses of technology in your home.
Is your home in need of a tech-savvy upgrade? You might want to try these upgrade ideas before the mass holiday visits begin.
Boost your WiFi
Everyone loves wireless internet. Nobody can fathom when it's slow as molasses. If your home's connection slows to a snail's pace, there's actually a way to boost it back to the speed of lightning. This may call for an update in the form of upgrading your Internet plan for faster speeds, or you can call and complain to your service provider that you are not receiving the speed for which you are paying now. See what they can do for you before you do anything else.
You may need to update the actual router, as well, or even invest in a wireless extender if the vicinity of your house is larger than that of the span of your current router.
Your friends and family will thank you when they come visit for the holidays.
Upgrade your TV
Have you heard of the latest in TV-- Apple TV? Not only is Apple TV a hot commodity, but high-definition television, better known as HD, is a must-have, as well. If you don't have the latter of the two, you may want to invest in that soon. The Ultra HD TV is the best option out there. Perhaps if you have a new gaming system like Xbox One, you will discover that you have the Xbox One's TV feature, as well.
Multi-screen TV upgrades via TiVo are also available, and Sony is updating its Bravia X9 series for ultra-high definition. HD is all the rage, and Apple TV is soon becoming the new most popular TV form out there.
These updates for your television viewing pleasure also make great gifts!
