How a 'Smart-home' will "future-proof'" your home
Modern homes are evolving into Smart-homes. They are a place to
stay interconnected with the world. Modern smart homes are a place
to be entertained with high definition video, digital audio and
interactive controls and a place to be protected with security features
that monitor and safeguard your home. The wiring of your home will
play a crucial rule in defining your Smart Home capabilities.
A 'Smart-home' system installed by CIL Tech starts with structured
wiring of your home if currently not wired. Once wiring and cabling
is in place then we install and configure the "smart"
electronic components in a central location such as a closet wall
and then we wire each wall plate throughout the house with the desired
smart home features such as telephone, computer network and television.
What is 'Smart-home' structured wiring?
Structured wiring is a method of providing the communications infrastructure
of your home through the use of several types of wires and cables
that support current and will support future smart home technologies.
Structured wiring is installed within wall spaces or in the attic
crawlspace so it is not visible. The structured approach is to consistently
run a full bundle of wire to every significant room. The full structured
bundle of wires often consists of two Cat 5e cables and two coax
cables and any other wires needed for custom smart home installation.
Usually extra wires are included for any future needs.
The ideal time to install structured wiring is while your home
is being built. It is much easier and considerably less expensive
to run all the cabling throughout your home before the walls are
finished. Most new homes are now built with structured wiring in
place so it can be used for smart home systems.
How does a 'Smart-home' work?
A 'Smart-home' system functions like this. All external data lines
(such as cable television, telephone, or Internet) come into the
house from outside and are run and connected directly to a central
'Smart-home' control panel. This control panel box is usually the size
of a large electric circuit breaker panel, and is placed in a utility
closet somewhere inside the house. Within the control box, each
incoming signal is split and sent down wires to most of the rooms
in the house. Basically these wires wind their way through your
walls and attic, ultimately ending at wall outlets or jacks placed
throughout your home. You then plug devices into the outlets and
use them to provide a multitude of great 'Smart-home' functions, such
as whole home audio.
