Internet and TV Video Services
Yes, we encourage you to let us know you are planning on changing your internet service with Spectrum or Cincinnati Bell (ISP). This would include upgrading your speed or changing an internet modem equipment. We often have your home network programmed in a certain way that can break your internet service when the ISP makes changes on their ends, thus we prefer you coordinate with us to minimize interruption of your internet thru a planned change event.
Regarding your cable or satellite TV service, we also encourage you to let us know you plan to make changes to your TV service, acquire new cable or satellite TV equipment boxes, or change TV service providers. We often program the remote controls in your system to use certain control codes which can break when TV equipment is changed so we ask you coordinate with us to minimize interruption of your TV service thru a planned change event.
What do I do if I call my internet service provider and my internet quits working after they “reset” my modem?
It is likely your internet modem has been taken out of bridge mode, the LAN subnet has been changed to match the router WAN subnet range, or the WAN static IP address has changed. You should contact SimpTech technical support immediately at 859-412-1436 to schedule an on-site service call to resolve this issue.
Why is my internet speed test not showing the speed I am paying for from my Internet service provider?
A few reasons can cause your usable internet bandwidth speed from being realized – 1) the router being used with your Internet service modem does not have a 1 gigabit WAN port and needs to be replaced with a new generation router; 2) the cable modem being used is not DOCSIS 3.0 compatible and needs to be replaced; 3) you are testing with a WiFi connection instead of a hard wired network connection. If you have questions, please contact SimpTech service department at email@example.com
The ability to manage your home’s electronic systems from one main control system can make your household run smoother, feel better and save energy. The trick is to find a system that will meet all the demands of your household, now and in the future. Most systems can be tailored by a custom electronics professional to provide all the benefits you desire, but there are some key features that will make his job easier and your interaction with your system more enjoyable. These features include interoperability, remote access, expandability, upgradeability, variety of interfaces, time-tested, strong dealer network, commitment to energy-savings, and most importantly the can-do attitude of the installer. Automation is only beneficial and practical if it fits your lifestyle. Since everyone’s lifestyle is different, the manufacturer should provide its installers with the tools to customize the system to your specific needs. If there’s something that you want your system to do and your installer says it’s impossible, either he or the manufacturer has failed you. Keep looking.
