Structured Wiring

Structured Wiring: The Backbone of Your Home’s Communication and Data

Structured wiring is being touted by many homebuilders as a way to “future-proof” and “digitally-enable” your home. It is the backbone of a home’s communication and data wiring, supporting telephone, television, audio, computer network wiring, security, and more.

The purpose of structured wiring is to organize and connect all of your low-voltage wiring in one place and to efficiently distribute a variety of data signals throughout your home.

Benefits of a Structured Wiring System

  • Distribute multiple phone lines
  • Play a DVD in one room and watch it on any other TV in your house
  • Listen to your stereo in any room of your house
  • Place video cameras at your front door, in the back yard, and in the baby’s room and monitor on any TV
  • Connect multiple computers up to one internet connection
  • Transmit files between computers in the house
  • Share devices such as computer printers and fax machines
  • Easily make adjustments to all of these options as your family’s needs change

As Better Homes and Gardens puts it, “Not installing Structured Wiring in a home built in the year 2000 – would be like leaving indoor plumbing as an afterthought in the year 1900.” The ideal time to install a home network is while your home is being built.
