Structured Wiring is a house-wide wiring system for communications, entertainment, security and control that works with systems already in the home. It anticipates technological advances and lays the groundwork for future home technology as well as smart home enhancements.

Components of a Home Structured Wiring System

The Distribution Panel

  1. It terminates all of the service provider services such as telephone, DSL, Cable TV, Cable Modem, Satellite, and Security to this central location within the house.
  2. It delivers those signals to locations throughout the home.

Audio/Video/Security Camera sources from within your home can also be delivered to this central location for distribution throughout the house. Various active/passive modular units installed within the distribution panel allow for the dispersal of the signal to locations throughout the house. Additionally, control devices in the distribution panels offer various home automation capabilities.

High-performance Cabling

Cable runs, also called home runs, are installed from the distribution panel to each location in the house where the signal is to be distributed. They are also installed to signal sources, i.e. security cameras, motion detectors, and audio/video sources.
