People expect Wi-Fi wherever they go, and places of worship are no exception. Installing a good Wi-Fi network can prove to be a technical challenge. Large spaces, solid walls, and lots of people trying to connect simultaneously, can mean slow connections and poor service. If you want to avoid complaints, get a professionally-installed Wi-Fi solution from Moseley Electronics.
COMPREHENSIVE CHURCH WI-FI SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY NEED
The thriving modern church, synagogue, or place of worship is like a business with a constant flow of people in and out. Some congregants stay a while using Wi-Fi as they go about their duties, and others just want to connect for the duration of a service or meeting without using their smartphone’s data plan.
Wi-Fi in a place of worship serves many purposes. People want the ability to receive updates, access their Bible App, sign up for activities on the church website, tithe online, and share news and information with friends. Additionally, equipment from printers to smart TVs and cameras are competing for the Wi-Fi network too. The result is a rising demand for connections and bandwidth, which can quickly overwhelm a system.
SPECIAL CHALLENGES WITH WI-FI NETWORKS
Religious buildings present some particular challenges for Wi-Fi networks. These include:
- Getting good signal strength in the large spaces where people gather
- Mounting access points discreetly so they won’t detract from the aesthetic of the space
- Solid brick or stone walls which degrade wireless signals far more than the drywall and framing used in residential home construction
- Facilitating large numbers of new connections simultaneously as people arrive for services
When Wi-Fi first appeared people were just happy to have a connection. Expectations are higher today. Your Wi-Fi needs to be fast and secure, and must be able to handle large numbers of connections. If it’s not performing the way you need, maybe it’s time for an upgrade.
WI-FI SYSTEMS & UPGRADES FOR CHURCHES, SYNAGOGUES & MOSQUES

Key elements are the router, the hub, and the wireless access points. For reliability, ease-of-use, and to enable remote support when needed, it’s also prudent to power everything through IP-enabled surge protectors.
Access Networks, Luxul, and their Wi-Fi components are designed for high bandwidth, high-security applications and incorporate features that suit the needs of places of worship. These include good traffic separation, (separate networks for staff, congregants, and guests), and seamless roaming.
Surge protectors not only protect equipment against damage by electrical surges, but also support trouble-free rebooting whenever it’s needed.
Quality hardware is only part of the solution; it must also be installed and set up correctly. Moseley Electronics technicians have extensive experience with Wi-Fi installations and will ensure yours is set up and configured in the best possible way.
When a Wi-Fi network has been in service for awhile, sometimes changes need to be made. Moseley Electronics can help with those improvements. This can be done either through on-site visits or if the OvrC remote access package was installed, we can help remotely. The ability to remote into your system eliminates the need for appointments and saves time.
