If your garden is big enough, it can be a great place to introduce a new building, to ensure you have the room you have always wanted – but may be missing – in your home.
With so many people working from home now, creating a comfortable working space has become all the more important. By having that office in your garden, it does give a bit of a separation between areas which are for work and fun, without having to travel too far.
Of course, this building could also be turned into a gym, cinema, or even an extra bedroom – and we’re seeing a huge “don’t move, improve” trend. But you don’t want to be in the garden, completely disconnected from the Wi-Fi or relying on patchy connection. So how do you get connected?
There are lots of different options available to get your connection set up and stable. In this first blog, we are going to look at some of the options that need a professional to install and set up. Definitely don’t try these yourself at home (or anywhere!).
An ethernet cable extends your Wi-Fi signal from your home to your outbuilding. It’s a true extension of the Wi-Fi you enjoy in your home, carrying the connection consistently from inside to the outside. It’s the most reliable way to extend your Wi-Fi signal.
If you will be having a power cable too, it may save you time and money to get the ethernet cable installed at the same time.
Brought to you by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company, Starlink uses low orbiting satellites to beam broadband connection to where you are. This is a Wi-Fi connection that uses your existing electrical wiring and can also be installed at the same time as construction. To receive the internet signal, the dish needs to perfectly correspond with one of the 2,000 (at current count!) satellites, which then passes the badwidth to your terminal.
If you’re having problems with Wi-Fi connection with the rest of your home (nevermind getting it to your garden) then Starlink could ensure you’re connected inside and out. It’s ideal for getting Wi-Fi into hard to reach places – including rural areas. It has even been used to help keep connection up for Ukraine during the Russian invasion.
Have you been wanting to improve your internet connection? Or are you having a garden office set up which you need an external Wi-Fi connection to? We would be happy to talk through your options and help you to get it set up. Get in touch!
