Wire Your House for Multi-Media

Nov 5, 2007
Structured wiring is a new, but very important concept in the residential construction industry. In fact just as one does not buy a home without any indoor plumbing or central heating today, pretty soon, no one will buy a home without any structured wiring.

With structured writing, it is possible to interconnect PCs and printers around the house so that there is file sharing and the possibility of sending information from one PC to another room or printer. In addition to connectivity between PCs and printers, structured wiring also provides for distribution of television, DVD and VCR programming in the home. With this, you can watch a movie in your bedroom while the movie is playing in the player found in your living room.

In addition to providing convenience with movies and the computer, with structured wiring, there is no need of re-wiring when you have to add new services, systems and electronic devices to your home. This is because the structured wiring accommodates additional devices and new devices that are yet to be invented.

Of course, the best time to install structured wiring is during the construction of a home so that you can decide on the placing of ports and wiring. It also avoids the expense of disturbing the walls and base boards for installation of structured wiring after the home is finished. This is referred to as "retro-fitting" that is opted for by those considering installing structured wiring in existing homes.

The basic components of a home structured wiring system consist of the distribution panel, high performance cabling and multi-media outlets. The distribution panel is usually found in the closet or attic and serves in terminating service provider services in the house and distributes signals to different parts of the house. Even audio, video and camera sources can be delivered here for distribution in the house. With an electrical power source in the distribution panel, it is possible to provide power to powered devices found in the panel.

The high performance cables run from the distribution panel to each location in the house for distribution of signals and are also needed in the installation to signal sources like motion detectors and security camera. The multi-media outlets are the plug and play points that are found throughout the house to provide outlets for internet, telephone, DBS, HDTV, cable TV, security camera and digital audio.

So it can be seen that structured wiring in your home provides the necessary infrastructure to deploy both current and future home technology.
