Audio, wired or wireless? If your on a budget and and don't mind The devices scattered around the home than wireless can be the way to go. I would consider this a one or 2 device solution. But there are some drawbacks to be aware of. They are going to create a lot of network traffic in the home along with a lot of wireless signals that can cause interference and potential health risk.
Option b is to hardwire a system, now you can hide the speakers in the wall and have a central amplifier, mainly designed for homes with 4 or more zones.
Cost, a 6 zone audio system will work out to about the same price wireless and wired. So, if at all possible to run wire it will make for a better installation long term.

To Wire or Not to Wire
A common question i receive all the time when designing, the answer is " always wire whenever possible". While its true there are lots of wireless technologies out there here are a few considerations to think about:
1- Should i future proof my design by using hardwire? With hardwire you never have to worry about the wireless technology changing. Currently its avery two years. As the technology grows and gets faster wireless is struggling to keep up.
2- Speed, when your mobile phone drops a call or hangs you feel frustrated, imagine trying to enjoy music through-out your home and it keeps stopping. Welcome to wireless.
3- Radio waves, there is a growing concern about the health of all those wireless devices in your home, while i am not qualified to explain that one, i can tell you a LOT of our clients are requested wired for that reason alone. Similarly a new trend is on the horizon for wifi access points and routers to have there wifi broadcast scheduled to turn off at night.

Eastech Modern Wireless Networking Blog

With online streaming services and security hacks becoming standard the need for a faster and more secure network in the modern home is here. To keep our clients ahead of the curve we have invested in over 80 hours of certification training and we are now certified with “Pakedge”. A tried and true commercial level networking platform.
Below you will find 3 upgrade levels specifically designed to upgrade your whole Internet experience. The packages are progressive, so you can ease into it if required. You can start with the first level and upgrade from there thru the next. The labor is estimated and will vary based on installation.

New Router, complete with remote management software. ( Bakpak)
Bakpak is a powerful remote management and monitoring system designed to help you proactively manage, monitor, configure, and troubleshoot your network. With Bakpak, you can eliminate costly service calls by having our techs tell you the issue remotely, and having you reboot etc. as required. The system also alerts our staff of issues before you even are aware there is one.

9 outlet remote management power strip, by adding this the above router we can reboot things for you right in our software. It controls 9 120v devices thru the router management software. It can also automatically reboot things (self healing) that go off line like apple tv’s or Control 4 processors. Again, designed to prevent service calls when things only need rebooting.

Seamless wireless network, the old way of changing networks on your wireless device as you move around the home is now over at last. Like hotels you can be anywhere in the home and get full signal on one single Wi-Fi network. This is accomplished by adding two components:

, Matching Wi-Fi access point, approx. 1500 sq. ft coverage at 2G speed, 750 square ft coverage at 5g high speed. What’s the difference? Good question, here’s the answer.
Imagine your internet service is proving you with 300 MB download speed. If you run a speed test on a hardwired computer this is what you should get. However, if you run a speed test on your phone you will likely see 30 or 40Mb speed. That’s because of the older 2G system.
If you use a 5G system you will get closer to the 300Mb on wifi. However, the range is significantly less so you need more wireless access points.

Looking for Internet Control??? Its Here at Eastech

Be a Scheduling Ninja
Customers tired of the kids playing online when home work or bedtime should be the priority? Router Limits content management makes it easy to set a schedule so devices can't access the internet between 4pm and 5pm or after 9pm.

See Their Faces

Wouldn't your clients rather see their family at the dinner table than look at their devices? It's a cinch to use the built-in Categories and Popular Sites to banish (or allow) entire swaths of the web. Each Category contains millions of websites and is constantly updated. Even the desktop or mobile app versions of popular apps like Facebook or Instagram can be controlled.

Simple Control
Send the kids to bed, but leave Netflix available. The TV's in the living room and master bedroom get different rules than the kid’s Android device. Apply rules to individual devices or groups of devices.

Eyes and Ears
If there are any concerns about how or when the internet is being used, Router Limits keeps history in the cloud where it can't be hidden, manipulated or deleted. Clearing browsing history or using private browsing (like Chrome’s “Incognito”) won't work. Check up anytime, from anywhere, and know what’s been going on.
