What is structured structured wiring?
Structured wiring is a generic term used to describe many different types of residential wiring products currently on the market. These products all have the same basic purpose—to efficiently distribute a variety of data signals throughout your home. Signal types supported range from those you are probably familiar with, such as cable television and telephone, to those you may not be so familiar with, such as Ethernet computer networks.
What does this do for me?
Here are just a few examples:
• Play a DVD in one room, and watch it on any other TV in your house
• Listen to your stereo in any room of your house
• Monitor video cameras at your front door, back yard, and the baby's room from any TV
• Allow multiple computers to use one high-speed internet connection
• Send files between all computers in the house
• Share devices such as computer printers
• Have multiple phone lines
Where does this install?
As a starting point, it is useful to think of a structured wiring system in terms of your house's electrical system. Electricity flows into your house through a main power cable. This cable connects to a circuit breaker box, where it is separated and sent down smaller electric lines. These lines wind their way through your walls, ultimately ending at power outlets placed throughout your home. You then plug devices into the outlets and use them.
A structured wiring system functions similar to this. All external data lines (such as cable television, telephone, or internet) come into the house and are connected directly to a central control box. This box is usually the size of a large electric circuit breaker panel, and is placed in a similar location, such as in the basement or a utility closet. From there, each incoming signal is split and sent down wires to multiple rooms in the house. Each installation is custom desgined for your home. We would be happy to discuss the solutions that are available.
