Building a new home can be exciting and also stressful because you get to customize it the way you want. If you are looking to rewire a pre-existing home, it may be a little more work, but it is doable. You will have to start by contacting an architect to get plans drawn up.  After you talk to an architect you are going to want to talk to a building contractor.

Regardless of whether or not you are building a new home or retrofitting a pre-existing home, you are going to want the wiring done properly. Wiring this correctly can save you time, money and frustration (not just for you but for the technicians that are going to install your audio video equipment.)

CONSIDER A 10-YEAR PLAN

While you are in the planning stages you will want the wiring that is going to be installed to last throughout the years. You are going to have to think about the devices that you may want to add in the future.

START WITH A FLOOR PLAN

Working with the architect you will get your floor plan, next you are going to want to pencil in where you want your devices to be installed, anything from your streaming devices to your smart lighting keypads. You are going to also want to put in what types of solutions you’d like in each room. 

MARK YOUR WIRING AND OUTLETS

On the plans you are going to want to mark where the wall outlets are located in each room you will be automating. Your audio/video technician, such as us, or your builder can help you with this.

RUN SPEAKER WIRE

You are going to want to run speaker wire to every room that you are going to have speakers in. Your audio/video technician should be able to run this wire properly. Because you don’t want to run the speaker wires too close to power wires in order to avoid interference.
