Pre Wire

Our Company has been
wiring and Installing Smart homes
in Austin since 2006

 

 

What is a Smart Home pre-wire?

A Smart Home Pre-wire is what happens when we run all wires for low voltage and technology before the drywall phase is completed, This method is contrast to retrofitting a home system
after the build has been completed.

 

What should we pre-wire for?


Home Automation
Pre-Wiring

Home automation is changing the way we live in our homes. If you think you’d like to make your home smarter in the future, Pre-wiring is a great first step to take.

  • Video Surveillance Cameras

  • Smart Video Doorbells

  • Hidden or Centralized Equipment Location

  • Lighting Controls

  • Smart Door Locks


TV & Audio Pre-Wiring

Audio Visual pre-wiring is the best practice if you want to add TV and music to rooms in the future. You can pre-wire as many rooms as you want, giving you the freedom to install a new system down the road.

Wi-Fi & Cell Phone Boosting Pre-Wiring

Your network can be set up wirelessly using a Mesh, but you will always find a
stronger more stable result through a wired system.

  • You won’t have a wireless limit on how much information can be transmitted.

  • Hardwired network design multiplies the level of bandwidth capability.

If reliable device connectivity is a priority in your new home,
pre-wiring for data is the only way to make this happen.

Security Pre-Wiring

Your security system can be installed using wireless methods after the home is built, but you will always have a more reliable result through a wired security system. 

  • Wireless systems need to have all batteries replaced once a year on all devices and contacts.

  • Pre-Wired Security systems have almost no yearly maintenance.

  • You can pre-wire a security system while you build and wait to implement the security monitoring later.

  • Wireless Security systems cost more than a wired security system

Plan for
future Fiber

Unlike most cities, Austin Texas is a "High Speed" network city and we need to prepare for this during construction if we want to take advantages of these speeds.

 

think about Upgrades

Austin New Home Prewire

Think ahead by FIRST adding a conduit run from the DMARK or service location to an attic area you can reach after the home is built. THEN add a second conduit from that same attic to your Structured wiring panel.

100% wifi Coverage

Austin Whole Home WiFi Installation

So many smart devices need strong WiFi signals to operate and update properly. We recommend adding a Cat6 network wire to all rooms that you want great performance in. Large homes depend on every room being wired for WiFi.

 

Building a house is expensive and we understand the urge to cut back on the little things like low voltage. BUT... Adding an additional single wire during pre-construction costs $50. So why not add that extra wifi access point to a room you think may become an office someday? It's a no brainer.
