Structured wiring is the backbone of your home or office. Every room that requires connectivity to the central hub gets at least a basic structured cable install. This cable includes 2 Cat5e cables and 2 Quad shielded RG6 coax cables. Twin multimode fiber optic can be added to further future proof the installation. The Cat5e cable has a 350M bandwidth, allowing large amounts of data to be transmitted quickly. It can be used for telephone, computer networking, Infrared transmission, video or audio distribution and much more. The quad shielded RG6 has a 2Gig bandwidth, allowing larger amounts of data to move a very quick rate. It is HDTV rated and can deliver cable wiring is the backbone of your home or office. Every room that requires connectivity to the central hub gets at least a basic structured cable install. This cable includes 2 Cat5e cables and 2 Quad TV, & satellite dish signals. It can be used to send video from a VCR or DVD player at your entertainment center to any room throughout your home.
So, what does all this mean? The importance of designing and installing the proper structured wire network in your home today is vital. This will allow your home to grow with you and your family’s changing needs without any reconstruction efforts at a later date.
Each room is a direct run back to the main hub allowing you to designate exactly how each finish plate is configured. Because the central panel is a hub, you can alter the use of each port in every room as the need arises. Once the network of cabling is installed, all you have to do is choose a feature you want, by installing a module in the distribution hub.
We are an authorized dealer and installer for Honeywell’s Future Smart Corp. technology. Being a part of Honeywell group gives us the ability to stay on the cutting edge of all the new technology, while giving you the peace of mind that they will be around for a long time to support your installation There are 2 basic types of panels to choose form:
The Pro Panel comes in: Pro & Super Pro versions. The Super Pro version offers additional expansion slots to add more hubs. They come in 8, 16, 24, & 32 zone panels. Each zone can supply up to 2 locations. Each structured wire run is terminated inside the top ½ of the panel. Each row designates 2 room locations. Each port then connects through patch cables to the appropriate hub below to determine the function of that port. Different color patch cables can be used to further simplify the use of each port.
The Quick Network can is a self-contained panel that has a finished cover to conceal all of the modules, patch cords and structured wiring. The same level of technology that is incorporated in the Pro panel, is in the Quick Network cans. They come in 18", 36" & 48" size cans to accommodate any size job. The quick network can is so designed, that if you ever wanted to upgrade to a Pro Panel, it installs directly on top of the Pro Panel.
There is a structured wire cable installed to each location and terminated on a finish plate. The top jack is for internet access, the next level offers up to 4 telephone lines at each plate, then the lower level is your cable or satellite video inputs. This is the starting point to plan your home’s wiring system. See additional information in the audio/video sections for additional wiring systems.
