How high should I mount my TV?

How high should I mount my tv or is there a correct height to mount my tv?

I’m asked these questions by every customer. Surprisingly there is no right answer. Generally I suggest the top of the tv to be 1700mm to 1900 mm from the floor, however it’s a subjective thing and depends on a few factors.

  • How big your TV is
  • Dimensions of the room
  • Type of room and it’s use
  • Construction of the wall the TV is being mounted on
  • Furniture in the room

Let’s have a look a bit deeper.

If you have a large tv going into a small room you don’t want to be lifting your head to see the screen. We would mount the tv a bit lower or vice versa for a larger room.

I mount TV’s higher in a bedroom as the angle you view the TV changes from a sitting position. Now you’re in a lying position. This way you won’t need to prop your head up thus hurting your neck.

Sometimes if your wall is a difficult construction to mount exactly where you’d like the tv to be or your tv is quite large and heavy we will need to mount it where it’s going to be safe and secure from falling down in the long term.

If you have a high cabinet under where your tv is going to be wall mounted then the top of the tv will be higher.

Houzz Magazine have a great article to read as well.

If all this sounds a bit daunting then get in touch to discuss how we can get your tv wall mounted. Will get your new tv mounted perfectly. Cable hiding is a specialty of ours. Free quotes in Adelaide metropolitan area.

Have a professional install your TV

TV Installation Adelaide

Installing your TV isn’t as easy as it first appears. It sounds simple, just take your new TV out of the box and plug it in. In reality though it’s quite a complicated exercise and if you get it wrong the consequences can be costly. Here’s an Adelaide TV installation checklist and a few tips to help you.

  • Are you physically able to lift the new TV into place? If not, make sure you enlist someone to give you a hand.
  • Have you cleared enough space in the room to work safely? There’s lots of packaging inside that box and it’s going to spread out quickly. Make sure you leave enough room to work.
  • Take the time to read the assembly instructions. I know guys, it’s boring and we don’t usually read instructions, but it does help. No two TV’s go together the same.
  • Don’t put pressure on the screen with your fingers! You may think that screen is tough, but it’s actually not.  Crack the screen and your new TV is toast.
  • Make sure the screws holding the base on are nice and tight. Big TV’s are heavy and toppling over is not only bad for the TV, but it’s a safety hazard.

Phone Adelaide Digital and WiFI today to discuss how we can install your new TV or even mount it on the wall for you.

We were recently called to an Glenelg home to investigate what appeared to be a faulty screen on a new TV.  On closer inspection the cause of the poor picture quality became obvious. The unsuspecting client had picked up the large TV by himself and squeezed the screen with his thumbs, resulting in the screen cracking. End result was a broken TV which needed replacing, before it was even plugged in. Don’t risk breaking your new TV.

Cracked TV screen

Home WiFi experts installing new access points

Home WiFi Experts

Adelaide Digital and WiFi are your Home WiFi Experts in Adelaide.

Recently we installed a pair Ubiquiti WiFi access points into a home in Dernancourt. These now give complete WiFi coverage to the entire house. This wall plate was installed near the existing NBN connection. CAT6 data cables go through the wall cavity and up to each of the access points therefore effectively shortening the distance between WiFi devices and the modem.

Ubiquiti Access Points are capable of servicing over 200 seperate devices at a time. They’re also capable of speeds far greater than our current NBN connections. In fact up to 1500 mbps. Currently download speeds are typically 50 – 100 mbps therefore making your new WIFi system future proof.

  • Indoors,
  • Outdoors,

Wireless internet panel for connection over long distances Adelaide Hills

Wireless Internet

If you are struggling to get a decent connection via The NBN then this Longreach Wireless internet antenna could be just what you need.

It utilises a 4G Data SIM card to connect to the mobile phone network using 4G data, giving you superior speeds and far less lag time than NBN Sky muster can ever achieve. It’s really an outdoor modem but with an amazing antenna built into it.

Adelaide Digital and WiFi have recently installed these wireless internet panels in a number of locations in South Australia. One in the Adelaide Hills where there was a selection of mobile towers to choose from. We can choose the tower that supplies the best possible down load speeds. These devices are capable of up to 600 mbps download.

Another site was near Broken Hill in outback New South Wales. The nearest 4G mobile phone tower was just over 60 kilometres away. Adelaide Digital and WiFi working with the manufacturers conducted tests via computer simulation prior to going to site to ensure everything would work. Once we had proved that the link would work via desktop simulation we then travelled to site for installation. After installation and commissioning of the equipment the clients internet download speeds increased from 3 mbps to 40 mbps! Upload went from 0.3 to 4 mbps. In fact, fast enough to hold a video conference call. We also supplied and installed a Ubiquiti Amplifi modem/ router so WiFi connection is now perfect and giving an added bonus of they can use their mobile phones to make calls via WiFi calling.  Take a look at our WiFi services here.

The inbuilt cable management on the mount allows for the cables to be hidden and also kept safe from damage when the tv is extended.
