Are you wiring for a smart home?
What you need to know about wiring your home for telecommunications services before you build or renovate.
Future proofing your home and ensuring it is fit for purpose for current telecommunications technology can save you time and money down the track. Thinking about how you want to use telecommunications services in your home at the same time as other services like electrical wiring and plumbing, will enable installation of telecommunications cabling during the building process rather than having to be retro-fitted.
