Wouldn’t it be handy to have the equivalent of a “check engine” light on your computer like your car has? That helpful glow alerts you to have a mechanic check your car for any maintenance that needs to be done before bad things happen. [Read more…]
Marketing has changed dramatically over the last two decades. Print ads in local newspapers used to be the main way companies put themselves on the map. But, the internet and use of social media have totally changed the best ways to reach customers. [Read more…]
Have you ever been looking up a company online and did a double take at their website, thinking it looked like it was made in the 1990’s? It probably made you think twice about doing business with them if their online calling card didn’t make a great impression. [Read more…]
You may have been hearing more about the “Dark Web” lately but weren’t quite sure what it meant to your business. Most companies are concerned with security threats like viruses and phishing attacks. [Read more…]
We use computer networks every day to connect to servers, other computers, and peripherals like printers and security cameras. But we often don’t realize the detail that goes into setting up a complex network of structured data cabling for both wired and wireless connections.
Quantum PC works with companies every day to design, install, and certify that their network setup is performed according to industry safety protocols and standards. Our team knows the NEC and BICSI methods and standards by heart and we follow them religiously.
But why are they important?
If you’re the owner of a hotel or vacation rental property, it’s more than likely that you’ve thought about installing and maintaining a WiFi system on the premises for guest usage. These days, internet access is essential and travelers view it as an expected complimentary service. Industry studies have already confirmed that lack of WiFi access is a top complaint of guests, with 51% of respondents citing the lack of free WiFi as a major issue when staying away from home.
The winter cold has been freezing more than just computers this month! There has been a lot of excitement lately, and it’s brought us some great fun, interesting jobs, and comfortable clothes. From setting up smart homes to building new PCs we have found plenty of things to keep us hot on our feet!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO
Journey helped our youngest customer, Eli, build his very own gaming PC that he bought with his own money! It took years of dedication and working at his family business to be able to afford this custom build.
With Valentines fast approaching there’s not a better time to be wearing pink! Thanks to our buddy Kipp from KB Designs & Apparel we’re set for the month.
Zak and Nathan appeared in Quantum PC’s very first timelapse! In which they show us how a professional network is assembled.
A big shoutout to Tom from DC LifeTech for getting us a sim card for our shop iPhone. With this we’ve been able to shoot some great stuff. Thanks for being awesome Tom!
Also, be sure to catch up on all the latest Quantum Live! Our weekly show airs Live on Facebook every Wednesday at 6:00pm!
The cold gets the best of us, even Chewy needs to take a moment to warm up before starting the day.
Network camera technology has gotten to the point where someone can literally go down to their local big box store and buy a complete network camera system with multiple cameras and a DVR to store and review video. For a Do-It-Yourself person, that might be all that is needed. On the other hand, (and there is more than one time this scenario has occurred) a client might purchase the camera system, get home (or to the office), open the box, figure out they may have bitten off more than they could chew, and bring that camera system right back to the store for a return/refund. Which is fine, but going that route doesn’t solve the problem the client was trying to address when they bought the system in the first place.
We at Quantum PC can help. We are knowledgeable professionals that work with our clients to develop a network camera solution to meet their needs. It’s safe to say that a client looking to have cameras for their residence will have different priorities than a client looking to have cameras installed at a place of business. Further, a car dealership (for example), may have different priorities than a bank. We at Quantum PC help identify those priorities and use our experience build a solution that addresses those priorities.
Let’s take a step back in this post and look at some questions that a client should be able to answer when developing a network camera system. There are plenty, but in this post, we ask three.
In case you have any doubt, we are living in a golden era of technological advancements. A few decades ago, we could rely on corded phones to communicate. Today we have “tiny” computers in our pockets that hold simultaneous communication functions. 1952 is the year when computers first understood human voice.
In 2000, significant tech development revolved around smartphones. The next big step in 2017 is the development of smart homes with voice-activated electronics. Smart home automation gives you a new level of control. The likes of Google Assistant and Siri are some of the platforms that have taken the smart home industry to another level.
Here are the voice-activated electronics that will enable you to tap into high-tech, dive in luxury and turn your home into a smart haven.
The Quantum PC team is wishing you the happiest holidays and a wonderful New Year!
It’s the holiday season and we’re as busy as ever. However, we know that it’s important to take the time to relax and enjoy all that we have! The picture above was taken at our team’s holiday get together. What a great bunch of people we get to work with!
