A single remote that controls all the appliances in your home. DVD players that can play media on any TV in the house. Music that follows you whichever room you go to. Multiple phone lines. Wireless printing. The ability to monitor your child via live video streaming while you are in another room, or at work.
The home of the future? Not really. More like the home of today.
The era of the digital home is now here. It’s not something that only exists in a sci-fi story anymore. It’s also not something that only the very wealthy and privileged can afford. An increasing number of homeowners now have access to sophisticated but more affordable and more realistic installations that will allow them to increase the safety, security, convenience and efficiency in their home via automation and networking.
So what makes digital home automation possible? With the help of experts, you can make your entertainment, climate control, audio-video, Internet and phone systems “talk” to one another through structured wiring technology.
Structured wiring is generally used for residential spaces to centralize and efficiently distribute data signals throughout the property. The entire system can connect your Internet, cable TV, computer networks and telephone lines, synchronizing their functions and making it possible to control them via a central hub.
The heart of an automated home is the central control box. All your data lines are directly connected to it. The data is received by and transmitted to this central hub. With the help of an amplifier, outgoing and incoming signals are strengthened, allowing crisp and clear signals, so you can hear your phone conversations better, or you get better image quality for your TVs.
The best time to set up a basic structured wiring system is during the construction phase or when you are rolling out a major renovation. During building or renovation, the drywall is not yet attached or will be removed at some point, leaving the walls still “open.” Therefore, the process of setting up the wires (which are installed inside the walls) can be done more efficiently and will cost less than if you were to tear down an existing wall in perfect condition.
If installation during building or renovation is not applicable to your situation, Specialized AV techs can retrofit and wire your home the way it needs to be. Minus few limitations, the techs at Specialized AV can wire your home to everything it needs to be to do what you would it to.
