pre-wire your home for a security system

10 December SHOULD YOU PRE-WIRE YOUR HOME FOR A SECURITY SYSTEM?

When you build a new house from the ground up or remodel an old one, there are many things to remember. For the initial step of construction, various things are important, including flooring, paint colours, cabinets, and several others. In this phase, plumbing and electrical wiring are also considered the two key tasks for builders and architects.

Most people want to ensure the safety and security of their home and this is an aspect they will not compromise on. So, it’s a good idea to pre-wire your home for a security system. Installing an advanced security system involves some amount of planning.

During the installation of wiring for your home, you can also plan every other detail of your electrical installations. Discuss your requirements with your homebuilder or contractor and let them know which installations you would need.

Getting your home pre-wired is a far more efficient option than cutting into drywall later and installing these features. It can save you a significant amount of time, trouble and money later. In addition, you do not have to worry about disrupting the activities in your home repeatedly, every time you plan to install some security system features.

Planned Construction

It’s true that you can opt for Wi-Fi enabled security systems, but it’s a good idea to consider prewired ones for all the main areas of your home. This prevents disruptions in signals, which can occur when there are obstacles. You also have the option to scale the system as needed and can add Wi-Fi enabled CCTV cameras to the existing security infrastructure.

Proper planning is crucial at this stage because the structure would still be under construction. So plan where you would need security devices installed, and where you might want to add some more in the future. This detailed approach will help ensure that you get the kind of security system you need to maintain the security levels on your property. The different types of security systems you might want to consider installing in your home include:

Security system installation is a specialised job and it’s a good idea to consult with experts that provide these services. When you discuss your requirements with them, they will provide you with recommendations about which devices you should install, where the locations should be and what the electrical requirements would be. They can also work with your building contractor and provide them the specifications and requirements so that the wiring is done as required. Once your house is pre-wired for the security system, you can be sure that you don’t have to revisit the installation later. It’s also a great way to have a reliable and efficient security system while maintaining your home’s aesthetics. Hardwiring these systems helps:

  • Minimise the risk of burglary
  • Reduce the chances of vandalism
  • Minimise the possibility of intrusion
  • Reduce the chances the system being hacked
  • More straightforward to maintain the security installations
  • Perfect for larger spaces
  • Can be scaled as required when provisions are made at the time of initial installation

As you can see, there are several benefits to getting security system wiring done while your home is under construction. It’s a good way to do away with the hassle and higher expense of installing these later.
