What Is Structured Wiring?
Structured wiring is a generic term used to describe many different types of residential wiring products currently on the market. These products all have the same basic purpose: to efficiently distribute a variety of data signals throughout your home. Signal types supported range from familiar ones, such as cable television and telephone, to those you may not be so familiar with, such as Ethernet computer networks. To give some more practical (and exciting!) examples, a structured wiring system is the backbone which will allow you to:
- 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, or in a baby’s room and watch the pictures on any TV.
- Hook multiple computers up to one internet connection.
- Send files between all computers in the house.
- Share devices such as computer printers and fax machines.
- Have over a dozen different phone lines.
- Easily make adjustments to all of these options as your family’s needs change.
