What is Smart Wiring?

The term “Smart Wiring” is now commonly used to describe the cables that are installed during the construction stage of building a new Smart Home. In our opinion, no home today should be built without some form of Smart Wiring installed. This can be very difficult or almost impossible to install in some homes at a later date.

 

The beauty of Smart Wiring is that it is relatively inexpensive to install and it gives your home the infrastructure it needs for now and well into the future.

 

New technology is constantly evolving. By wiring your home with the future in mind, you will ensure that as new technologies emerge, your home will not become obsolete, and instead, it will be ready to take advantage of new technologies to enhance your lifestyle.

But isn’t everything wireless now?

Whilst the use of wireless technology is now widely used to keep us connected, a wireless connection is the slowest and most vulnerable to interference, potentially reducing its speed and reliability. 

 

Without Smart Wiring cables built into your home, fast and reliable network can be difficult to deliver. This is especially true if you have a large home or a type of home where the walls, ceilings and floors are made of re-enforced concrete. Wi-Fi and other wireless systems just don’t work reliably or at all in these environments.

 

A Smart Wiring solution is required to deliver the following services:

  • Freeview TV and Foxtel Sattelite Boxes
  • Multi-zone music systems
  • Home Networking
  • Reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout the entire home
  • Security sensors
  • Access Control or Keyless Entry for doors and gates
  • CCTV Cameras

A Smart Home is a Connected Home.

Smart Wiring allows all of the systems in your Smart Home to easily and intelligently communicate with each other. For example, when you disarm the alarm, your vehicle gate opens, garage door opens, driveway lights turn on and your favorite tunes start playing to welcome you home.

 

To allow this, we commonly install Smart Wiring systems in a new home with a centralised Smart Wiring hub, like the one pictured here.  All of the wires are run back from each of the locations throughout the home to this Smart Wiring Hub. 

 

This allows us to accommodate all of your Smart Wiring Cables and equipment, keeping it neat and tidy with all of the wires tucked away and out of sight. 

 

It’s also much easier to maintain and make changes to in the future if all of the wires are run back to this same centralised location.

A Case Study of a Smart Wired home in Buderim.

Whilst this video is a little dated, this is a Smart Home that we wired back in 2011. This home has been through a recent upgrade, but no new cables needed to be installed. They were fully compatible with today’s technology, ten years on.

Here is what our customers have to say about us

Excellent service, fantastic communication throughout, I would highly recommend their services.

Dan McKay

We cannot speak highly enough of the exceptional services Connect Multimedia provided as part of our major home renovation a decade ago. We have continued to call on Connect Multimedia for equipment upgrades ever since and have never been disappointed. The after-sales service provided by Glenn and his team is also outstanding.

We will certainly continue to use Connect Multimedia for future upgrades of our multimedia system and have no hesitation recommending them. Our advice – call Connect. Getting them involved in creating our dream home theatre will always be one of our best decisions!

Tania Scott

We installed C-Bus in 2003 and we decided (in late June 2021) to upgrade to the latest technology. Glenn from Connect Multimedia was responsive and very effective in his explanation of the proposed upgrade. He worked closely with our electrician to complete the project in a very short time. There was no inconvenience. He then returned to tweak the system to ensure the flexibility that this state of the art technology provides.

Stewart & Sue Penny

We first called on Connect Multimedia when we purchased our dream home on the Sunshine Coast in 2013 to create our home theatre (including streamed music upstairs) and our home network. We really enjoyed that first iteration of our system. We called on Connect Multimedia anew in 2017 for equipment upgrades and the associated reprogramming. Brilliant outcome. In 2020 we called on Connect Multimedia yet again when we upgraded to 4K and gave the home network a make-over. So love 4K. And the new home network is fabulous. Over the years we have also relied on Connect Multimedia for all our maintenance calls. Glenn and his team in our opinion provide high quality, great value, contemporary products. Glenn is a highly experienced senior technician who is across the latest technology. He is pragmatic about product choice: he doesn't push the latest gadget, but recommends products that fit and work with the existing infrastructure. We have found the Connect Multimedia team easy to get along with, always responsive to our needs. It is the go-to company for our home theatre and home network requirements: we wouldn't go anywhere else on the coast. Highly recommend Connect Multimedia.

Chris Lines

We love our Smart Home system that Connect Multimedia put together for us. Glenn's technical expertise and ability to work what we did and didn't need was invaluable during the planning stage of renovating our home. We are so glad we got them involved from the start. The documentation and planning from Glenn and his team meant that the builder, electrician, designer and other trades were all working from the same page. I couldn't recommend using Connect Multimedia highly enough.

Debbie Watson

Connect Multimedia designed and built an Audio Visual system that catered to our specific needs. It is a high quality system that is very reliable and requires very little maintenance. Support is always available and Glenn, the owner of the company is the best and most professional technician I have ever worked with. Steve, Systems Administrator, Maroochy RSL
