Structured Wiring Solutions
Structured Wiring Solutions are the next step in wiring your home. This involves running all of your home's wiring back to a central point, called a Structred Wiring Panel (aka HomeRun). All incoming cables are tested and labeled at the Structured Wiring Panel as well as the drop location in various rooms in your home. This gives you a very clean & manageable wiring solution for your home that is neat in appearance and much easier to troubleshoot if there is a problem. It also allows you to cleanly distribute internet & phone service throughout the house as well as cable or satellite TV service. Other uses for a Structured Wiring Panel include distribution of wiring for security alarm, security cameras (aka CCTV), intercom & home automation & control.
ATS offers Structured Wiring Solutions from all the major brands including: OnQ/Legrand, Leviton, Honeywell, Datacomm and Structured Wiring Products.
We will install your Structured Wiring Panel, run all the wiring to the various drop locations throughout the home, label each individual wire run and provide you a network map of your home for future reference.
Networking includes the wiring of the home but also connection of networking equipment providing you, the customer a complete solution to plug-n-play with your computers, phones, etc.
After completing the wiring, ATS can install a patch panel to connect all of the various network wires throughout the home and a router and switches to distribute the internet and/or voice service from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
All wire runs will be clearly labeled and tested, and a network map of your home will be provided to you. We use high quality networking vendors like Cisco/Linksys, Netgear and ICC.
Are you building a new home?
We can work hand-in-hand with your builder to pre-wire your house, theater room or out-building while it is in the construction stage. We do the design, installation and customer training. We have experience pre-wiring large custom homes, structures and communities of semi-custom homes. American Technology Solutions can either start at the beginning of a project and create the network maping, or we can jump in at the last minute and prewire if you are in a bind. Our methodology at ATS is to design your wiring so it can accomodate new technology in the future without running new wire. By doing this we save you, the customer time, headaches and most importantly money.
ATS offers full Wire Certification for our customers.
Wiring can cause significant problems on any network. Bad wiring can cause equipment malfunction and damage, potentially costing the home owner money & time. At ATS, we know the technical wiring standards and how to implement them. Our IEEE approved wire testers are available to determine any wiring connection that is functioning less than optimally in your home.
