Structured Wiring

Structured wiring has become all the rage in new home construction. That's great, but what does it mean? Let us help you sort that out.

Fifty years ago, indoor plumbing was considered a luxury in some homes. Many years later the microwave was introduced and considered an upgrade in many new homes. Now a new home must be ready for the technologies of today and tomorrow.

Structured wiring consists of bundles of two category- 5e unshielded twisted-pair cables and two RG6 coaxial cables ran in a star/ home run configuration to a common hub and ran to each information port located in individual rooms. That helped clear it up, right?

The less technical explaination is that structured wiring is high–performance wires and cables that are run in your home. Communication lines for audio, video, data, home entertainment, cameras, intercom, fire, security, and anything else that is considered low voltage or takes up bandwidth. Think of it as the electronic foundation for your home.

If you are building a new home or remodeling your existing home, keep the future in mind! Structured wiring is a concept that anticipates the present and future electronic needs for every room of you household, some call it "future proofing"  or "smart wiring" your home.

We recommend you plan ahead with your builder/remodeler and make sure the appropriate wires are run throughout your home in preparation for current and future technologies, even if you don't want to spend money on the devices until later. It is much easier, and less expensive to pull wires when the walls are open.

Cat 5e wiring (high speed data wiring) should be considered if you are interested in data and networking. We all know the internet has become a "necessity" in most homes. People are now creating local area networks (LAN) with computers in each room while sharing files and printers.
