Staying Connected Through the Storm:
Tech Prep for Luxury Beachfront Living
It is hurricane season in Florida, so it’s time to batten down the hatches and ensure your luxury beachfront condo is prepared! For many residents, that means stocking up on supplies and reinforcing windows. However, it’s just as necessary to protect your technology and maintain connectivity when you may need it most. For many residents, that means stocking up on supplies and reinforcing windows. However, just as important is protecting your technology and maintaining connectivity when you may need it most.
Power surges and outages are common during major storms. One lightning strike or fallen power line can send a power surge damaging electronics and rendering internet and phones useless. As a beachfront resident, you rely on your devices for everything from security systems to entertainment. Losing power and connectivity right when you need it can quickly turn a hurricane into a nightmare.
That’s why every condo should invest in an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). A UPS acts as a surge protector and backup power source, supplying battery power to your essential devices if the electricity goes out. For a luxury condo, the UPS should be robust enough to supply backup power to your security system, garage doors, electronic locks, WiFi router, cable modems, and more. Having several hours of uptime for these systems can make a huge difference in maintaining safety and peace of mind.
In addition to hardwiring a UPS for critical systems, having portable power stations can keep other devices charged. Stock up on solar-powered power banks for charging phones and tablets. Gas-powered generators are also useful for running larger devices like your refrigerator, electric stove, or AC systems during longer outages. Just be sure to operate generators safely and never indoors.
Of course, even the best power protection can’t help if your internet and cell networks go down. While unusual, major hurricanes can damage above-ground cables and cell towers. For your condo, look into satellite-based internet services capable of running even when landlines fail. Satellite phones are another option for backup connectivity.
By taking the right precautions, your luxury beachfront condo can weather the worst storms while maintaining the safety, comfort, and connectivity you rely on. Don’t get caught powerless when storms hit – invest in robust UPS systems, generators, and backup internet to stay connected through the season. Your property, security, and peace of mind are worth the investment.
