Structured Wiring University Upgrade

So, what is structured wiring? The term refers to any wiring that is used to carry signal from one point to another. Much like the electrical wiring in your home carries the voltage needed to power your electronics, structured wiring provides the TV, internet, and phone signal from a centralized point to all of the rooms within your home. Structured wiring isn’t a new thing. Many of us have phone jacks, TV jacks or even Ethernet jacks in one or a few rooms within our homes today. Higher Education Security Systems used by our team standardize a minimum of one TV and one phone/data jack in each room within the house. By not wiring some of the rooms within your home, it impairs your ability to connect your devices and it also has an impact on resale value. If you’re building – make sure your builder is including all rooms on your structured wiring plan!

In a good wiring plan all wires are run to a central location the basement. Most of the builders contractors will run wires room to room. For example: If the builder is adding a phone line to your kitchen and master bedroom, they will run the wire from the basement to the kitchen to the bedroom. The proper method would be to run a line from the basement to the kitchen, and a second wire from the basement to the bedroom. This has several advantages. First, if there is a problem in the connection you only need to look at the two ends. You don’t have to remember and check everywhere that the wire passes through. Second, if you run wires room to room then you are limited in what you can do with the wires. It may be OK to run a phone line in series (room to room), but it is not OK for Internet network cables. Most builders will run Internet wires for the phone lines and you should do the same. If you run the wires in series then only one of the rooms will be able to make use of the wire as a network cable.

Linked throughout by structured wiring systems, fully connected homes integrate cable TV, home automation, home security, satellite feeds, audio/video systems, computers, Internet, multiple phone lines, and more to provide convenient control over the entire home environment. Built for today with an eye toward tomorrow, these structured media panel systems enable you to fully maximize the capabilities of home devices and systems, and help them run together more efficiently.
