Building a New Home?Make Audio Video Part of the Plans
published onFebruary 7, 2011

Back in the day, the most challenging questions people might have when building a new home were “how many bedrooms,” or which grade (and color) of kitchen appliances they wanted. Today’s homes are different… and still evolving. Future-proofing is an important consideration — and that means more than just energy efficient appliances and heating systems

Wire Now for Audio Video, Save Money Later

Before contractors start putting up the drywall in your new house, it’s important to think about your audio video and home control system needs. Running network lines for internet access and cabling for your television is just a lot easier before drywall is placed, especially if you want a really seamless, clean solution. Wall-mounted wire management can make your home theatre system look very nice. But there’s nothing like having wiring completely hidden within your home’s infrastructure for a clean look.

What systems do you need to wire for? Just like building the home theatre system of your dreams, the possibilities are endless. Maybe you want wall-mounted remote control panels for your home theatre system as well as all the other HDTVs in your home. But it doesn’t have to end there.

Today’s whole home control systems can put nearly everything on your home’s network to be controlled by wall panels, or wirelessly through a handheld remote or even your laptop, desktop computer, iPad, iPod or smartphone. Remember, even wireless systems need wiring.

Your eventual whole home control system can be wired to control:

  • lighting
  • heating
  • air conditioning
  • your kitchen appliances
  • audio video
  • Don’t have a whole home control system — or even a home theatre system — yet? Whole house control is growing in popularity every day because of the convenience it offers and in the future, it may even be standard. (Who ever imagined, 20 years ago, that every home would have a personal computer or three?)

    If you’re having a new house built, why not call JD Pro now to help you make audio video and whole home control systems part of your home — now or in the future.
