Structured Wiring

Careful low-voltage system design translates into a beautiful end result that elegantly integrates into your home's décor. There are an enormous amount of details that go into designing reliable audio video and control systems.First, there is the low-voltage wiring infrastructure. Your home's wiring should not only be appropriate for your initial needs but also allow for future technologies. Once your walls are closed up, they should stay closed.A properly designed wiring plan should be able to adapt to new technology many years after your initial move-in. In the design phase we like to think how your system might evolve down the road, and plan for it now. CoastalHomeworks will communicate your home's technology needs with your design team (architect and interior designer) as well as your general contractor.

Coastal Homeworks recognizes that the IT (Information Technology) system requirements in a luxury residence are extremely demanding and we meet this need with robust and reliable solutions. Often your television, telephone, and music are all delivered to you over your home network. Add in your mobile devices, computers, and smart appliances and you are officially considered a “connected home”. The luxury home of today typically has a more complex network than a small business with 40 employees. The amount of connected devices can enter the hundreds and the network traffic can be enormous. We offer the very best business-grade (or enterprise-grade) networks to ensure the highest levels of network speed, reliability, and security. Your data is precious and private and Coastal Homeworks takes every precaution to protect it.

The backbone of all communications and control is an enterprise-grade high-speed data network. We will recommend and coordinate with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to provide the fastest and most reliable possible connection to the outside world. Oftentimes this can be arranged with a redundant backup ISP to further ensure uninterrupted service. These ISP connections are managed by carefully designed firewall systems that protects you from external data attacks, while allowing remote support and diagnostic services to continue in the background. Once inside the firewall, your data network is distributed throughout your property via ultra-fast gigabit connections and enterprise-grade managed switching. Seamless WiFi coverage is delivered by a network of wireless access points that provide an umbrella of high-speed wireless data access so you can roam with your laptop, tablet, or smartphone and always maintain a fast, reliable connection to your network.

It is important to note that the IT system is not only required for your personal needs and enjoyment, it is also the backbone of all your Coastal Homeworks services, such as your home automation control system (Crestron, Lutron, URC, and RTI, etc.), audio and video streaming, content library sharing, and integration with your telephones, security system, cameras, lighting, climate, etc. We understand the critical importance of extreme reliability.

Remember, Coastal Homeworks should be consulted for low-voltage planning at least two months prior to the release of architectural construction documents for new construction projects.
