Leveraging its classification last week as an essential critical infrastructure company by the United States government, SmartHouse Integration has begun offering H.O.P.E. to home based small business owners who are now being challenged to upgrade their technology infrastructure to remain competitive and productive during the coronavirus pandemic.
“As an essential critical infrastructure company, SmartHouse Integration is not only allowed to keep operating as usual, it has a mandate to help small business owners in our market area to upgrade their entire home network to remain competitive,” explains SmartHouse president Mark van den Broek. “Most home networks are not prepared for the increased level of traffic they are now experiencing. Our Home Office Preparation Executive program upgrades networks and systems, installs and maintains security systems, and provides a virtual technician to monitor, troubleshoot, and resolve issues remotely.”
In short, H.O.P.E. is a comprehensive, turnkey program that addresses a home’s networks, security, surveillance, power management, cellular back-up and battery back-up.
Van den Broek explains that, with entire families now working and going to school from home, the existing home technology infrastructure simply will not, in many cases, be able to keep up with the many multiple streaming devices operating around the clock. “The H.O.P.E. program tests the reliability of the current network, the Wi-Fi coverage area, and the speed of the network and provides the corrective steps necessary to upgrade the technology backbone of the house,” he explains.
For more information about the SmartHouse H.O.P.E. program small business owners can call the SmartHouse emergency telephone number 800-351-6191, send an email to [email protected] or visit www.smarthouseintegration.com/hope.
