Notes For A New Home Build – Low Voltage Wiring
This is a follow up to the recent Notes For A Home Build article, this article will cover low voltage wiring in new construction homes and give you many things to think about as you plan your dream build.
You can future proof your home during the build by adding all sorts of wire to the house. Even if you don’t install all the devices right away, you can still run the wire and create a number of projects for the future. The idea is to prepare your new home for complete and comprehensive internet, TV, phone, alarm, and home automation.
You can apply many of the concepts to retrofit an existing home, but you’ll have to figure out running the wires on your own.
This article will deal specifically with Internet (ethernet), TV (RG6 coaxial cable), and phone. A future article will cover alarms and home automation.
