Future Homes will provide a brief training course to bring clarity on the types of cabling infrastructure necessary to support the technology typically required for the modern home.

This course provides a useful and practical step-by-step guide. It identifies the key requirements for an installation and defines three grades of recommended cabling infrastructure.

The Recommended Wiring Guidelines classify three grades of cabling infrastructure.

  • Grade 1 will ensure the effective and reliable delivery of internet services, home networking, TV, satellite, radio, telephone, conferencing and other entertainment services to most rooms in the house.
  • A Grade 2 installation will additionally provide the capability for whole-home distribution of audio-visual content using discrete in-ceiling speakers and in-wall control points.
  • With a Grade 3 infrastructure, functionality is further extended to embrace lighting control, motorised curtains and blinds, access control systems, CCTV networks, environmental and heating control, as well as systems that allow these technologies to be controlled and integrated by a single control system using in-wall controls and hand-held remote devices.

Through a clearly defined staged process and using explanatory diagrams, the course outlines the incoming services and the planning, cabling and testing essentials which should be followed for each Grade. Future Homes is extensively promoting the recommended wiring guidelines document to consumers, developers and other relevant building industry professionals.

 “The most expensive cable that can be installed is the one that did not get fitted in the first place. Mistakes can be costly so it is vital to get the cabling infrastructure correct the first time around”.

The Course is free of charge and takes approx. 30mins.
