Why you should add Battery Backup (UPS) Uninterruptible Power Supply to your home

Battery Backup (UPS) Uninterruptible Power Supply VERY IMPORTANT to not forget about

Everything anymore uses Wi-Fi, Wired Internet, or Cellular Data. You have Modems, Routers, Switches, or Access points in your house or business. You need to plan what to do if the power goes out, and your Smart Home and devices don’t work anymore. They are not cheap but will give you power for a short time but also help with marking sure you don’t blowup electronics or devices when you have power outages.

If you have children, elderly or disabled in your home, having battery backup would be a good thing to keep them entertained. 

Reminder: Battery backups cant be used to power every item in your home. You need to pick and choose what devices you need to be powered when there is an outage. If you want your whole house to have, power get a Whole Home Generator. Also, just like any battery, they don't last forever, so at some point, you will need to replace the battery in the device. 

Some Options

  1. Whole House Generator- Very Expansive, but you can power your entire house while the power is out. I would love to get one, but the price tag is keeping me from it. I do work from home and do have power outages, but I have devices in place to help with it.
 
  1. Battery Backup (UPS) Uninterruptible Power Supply
    1. One UPS for your Modem, Router, and Access Point- If you want the power to last longer, get a more significant UPS and try not to plug everything into it.
    2. If you have a switch, I would have one UPS for that as it uses more power
    3. If you have remote switches around your home or business, you will need a UPS at each one.
    4. If you have Access Points around your home or business, you will need a UPS at each one
    5. If you want to have your surveillance system work, you will need a UPS for it
    6. If you have security cameras around your home or business and want them to work still, you will need a UPS for each one that you want to work
    7. If you have a Desktop PC and need access to it, I would add a UPS, and if you have multi-monitors, only plugin one.

My thoughts and opinions: no one is paying me to promote their products. This means no company is paying me to give them good reviews. I’m not going to play that game of we’ll provide you with cash, products, referrals, and so on if you give us good reviews. If a company feels like giving me money, products, or referrals, then good for them. This will not change how I review their products. If I think the product is Good, I will promote it as a tested product that I stand behind as it should work fine for you. I have no problem saying what’s good, bad, needs fixed, or added to the product.
