For Home Automation to succeed in your Home / business the one prerequisite is a solid network.

So what comprises a solid network ?

A stable internet connection delivering “better than average” speeds.

Yes you will experience dropouts – the NBN is allowed to drop out several times a day , but for the most part it should be stable.

The B.One app will tell you when you have lost your internet connection.

Better than average speeds means a connection that is above 9MBPS if you were on ADSL.

For those that are on high speed broadband ( NBN and Wireless Providers) a minimum of 25MBPS

Next you need stable WiFi.

If you have a large home or office consider a mesh network such as Google WiFi , which will provide great coverage even in complex setups.
