All telephone, data and television cabling originate from the structured wiring panel. This makes it easier to expand your system to accommodate things like computer networking, distributed audio and video, cable or satellite television, and future additions. Additionally, the wiring infrastructure is versatile, so it can evolve as your technology needs change.
All telephone and data ports are wired identically using Ethernet cable and RJ45 terminations. At the structured wiring panel, all cables are labeled by room for easier identification.
If you have not contracted with us for networking equipment, we recommend that your Internet service provider installs your modem/router adjacent to the panel. Doing so allows your telephone and data ports to be used interchangeably, i.e, simply plug any RJ45 terminated cable into a RJ45 telephone distribution module (contact us to purchase one if you opted not to include at time of initial meeting) for telephone service OR plug it into an open Ethernet port on the modem/router or network switch for hardwired networking and Internet access.
PLEASE NOTE: If your router has integrated WIFI capability, mounting it inside the panel could degrade the wireless signal. You can address this by adding a wireless access point (perhaps on the main level of your home).
All television jacks are cabled with RG6 coax. At the structured wiring panel, all cables are labeled by room for easy identification. By centralizing all television cables, your home can more readily support cable, satellite, or over-the-air television services. A splitter for multiple television locations should be provided by your service provider.
If you prewired for an antenna, the wires will be located in your attic near the access hatch. Since this was a prewire, the antenna was not included, but can be purchased directly from HomeRun Electronics through the Continuum Care program.
Similarly, wireless access point locations where equipment was not purchased during your consultation are located according to your floorplan. These locations are typically in the ceiling and the terminated cable can be found behind a blank plate. If you are installing a WAP yourself, you will need to connect the opposite end of the wire (found in your structured wiring panel) to a network switch.
Home Theater Prewire Only – Includes speaker prewire only with all speaker locations covered with blank plates. At the equipment location, all speaker prewires are also marked and stored behind a blank plate (the same is true for Single Speaker Prewire Add-Ons).
Cable Chase – Includes a flexible plastic tube that runs from the AV equipment location to the TV or projector location, allowing you to route cables inside the wall between the two locations. A string is present to help pull the interconnects through. It is important to NOT remove this string until you intend to use it for such purpose.
All security device prewires are in boxes covered with blank plates, except for doors and windows (3/8″ hole in jamb). If the house includes a full security system, it should be programmed and ready to operate in a “standalone” manner. A user manual should be included either with the appliance manuals in one of the kitchen drawers or by the centralized distribution panel. We strongly suggest immediately changing the user passcode from the default 1234.
Also, please remember that we offer 24/7 remote station monitoring for as little as $30/month and a suite of home automation capabilities as well. Please contact us for more information.
If you are having an issue with your security system, please visit our security support page here.
Lastly, for homes without a security prewire, we offer the Clare Wireless Security System. This wireless security system is an IP-controlled security and smart-home system that can integrate select Z-Wave devices such as door locks, thermostats, lighting dimmers/switches, electrical outlets, garage door openers, cameras, and many products in the lineup to be added in the future to expand the system capabilities.
With Clare, you can have a wireless security system with a robust smart-home system.
Window coverings are a necessary part of any home. If you wired for motorized window treatments but have not selected them, contact us as soon as possible because the ordering lead time can vary. Window shades can be integrated into a home automation system (Crestron, Control4, or Clare), but generally require some tweaking to get the programming just right. If you have one of these systems in your home, shade control is simply from a button on your lighting keypad, or an app on your phone. For the ultimate convenience, make shades a part of your automated lighting scenes.
