New devices and services are hitting the market every day and it's easy to get confused by all of the features, prices and initials...
Initials
That list could go on forever! Now add to that the features of each and the compatibility between all the devices. Confused yet? Now look at the price tag. Are you overpaying? Can you really trust those salesmen? If you're not sure, then you need to call Wired Iris today. We'll sit down with you and your family, come up with a sensible plan and then go looking for the best prices for you.

Coaching Ideas:


Wireless Network

Are you setting up a wireless network or do you have one you aren't sure is set up correctly? While most wireless routers will work out-of-the-box, having it configured incorrectly can cost you dearly. If your wireless isn't password-protected you're opening the door to potentially serious problems or at the very least, annoying setbacks.

If a 3rd party is using your network to download music illegally, access pornography or do any other illegal activities, it will be traced back to you through your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you don't password-protect your wireless network, in some cases, you may be in violation of your ISP's terms of service. In which case, they may limit or suspend your service.

Did you know?

  • Without a password someone can lock you out of your own network.
  • Your network speed may be suffering due to unauthorized users.
  • Some wireless routers can block dangerous websites, keeping your kids safe.

If you have a wireless network that needs password protection, call Wired Iris today. We'll come and lock everything down. Do you know someone who needs their wireless password protected? You can purchase this service as a gift. Call us now for options and pricing.

Cable Internet or DSL?

Which is better? There's no easy answer here. It really depends on what is available in your area, your needs and what you are willing to spend. When you talk to salesmen on the phone, they will tell you that bigger is better, but it isn't always worth the additional cost. Certain providers also cleverly tack on other monthly charges.

with you and determine what you need. If you're not comfortable calling to set up the service, we can do the talking for you. Before starting or switching service, contact Iris first and we'll find the best deal for you.

Buying a New Television

So you're looking to buy a new television and you're just not sure which one is right for you. That's not surprising considering more than half of all self-installed home theater systems aren't set up properly. Very finite settings can have a drastic improvement on sound and picture quality. You could go with the chain stores offering installation packages for as much as $650 in addition to their 1400% markup on cables (not an exaggeration) but can you trust them? If you have questions later on, will they send the same high school kid to your house, or someone different?

Wired Iris can explain the details of the different TVs and give you an unbiased opinion of each. Do you want an LCD? Maybe a plasma? Do you need a home theater system? Will everything work with your existing equipment and service? Wired Iris can help you every step of the way. We pride ourselves on a personal level of service no in-store service center can match. We can work within any budget and guarantee your satisfaction.

Looking for a Digital Camera

There are so many different digital cameras to choose from that it's enough to make your head spin. Every camera has different features and finding the right one for your needs can be like finding a needle in a haystack. It's rare to find a first time camera owner who loves his or her digital camera. It isn't until your second camera that you really know what you want. Wired Iris can eliminate that learning curve and keep you from wasting your money.

Cameras
Everyone is different and their camera should fit their needs. There are some common misconceptions that an expensive camera is "better" than the others. This simply isn't true. Bigger isn't always better. If you tell us what you plan to photograph, we can translate that into the most cost-effective camera. We'll also ask the right questions to make sure you don't forget anything.

Taking Better Digital Pictures

Even the best digital camera won't take quality pictures in the wrong hands. If everyone else's photos always look better than yours, you might need a few tips on taking a decent digital picture. Get some hands-on guidance from Wired Iris and you'll be shooting better shots in no time.

We'll also look at other often overlooked ideas for getting the best prints from your photos. Sure, Wal-Mart and Target are convenient, but are you ruining your perfect digital photo during the last step? We let you decide.
