|Home > Solution for R. F.|
Solution for R. F.Design is for R.F. residence in France
Design is for 4-storey house, 10 rooms and 1500 sq. Feet, is that correct? I have made assumptions on the number of bedrooms as I dont have your home plan. If you have corrections let me know and I will re-work the components.
Please read solution specification
below and then look at solution components (links to products) at the bottom to get a complete view of
your solution. Please send us email with questions/comments you might have.
Four types of outlets(wallplates)
VDT : Video, Data, Telephone powered by composite cable
DT : Data + telephone powered by cat5e cables
HT : Home theater 5 pairs of binding post modules for audio input. Located behind entertainment/TV unit. (Other end terminates
VC : video camera, run one RG6 and 1 cat5e to each of the interior/exterior camera location. Three technologies available, CCTV($), IP camera($$), IP camera with Power over ethernet($$$) wire for both.
CCTV uses 1 RG6 for video and cat5e for 12V DC
IP camera uses cat5e for signal and control and have a 110 V AC close by for power.
IP camera with power over ethernet handles signal/control and power all from one cat5e but is very expensive now.
When pre-wiring for video camera leave ample extra length on camera end and cover gang box with wallplate.

Structured Wiring Panel
These panels(cabinets) are designed to fit between studs (2x4inch wooden colums) and mount flush with the wall. Unit comes as a can and a cover. the can mounts flush with the finished wall. The cover rides
on the wall and screws into the can and will rise 1/4 inch from the wall.
AC power supply
I am assuming this will not work in France, I have added it FYI so you can see the details. You can fashion your own AC power supply by fitting a french AC extension type power strip and fit it in the space created by the punch-out at the bottom of the panel.
Termination your 24 telephone runs on this panel, each cat5e consists of 4 twisted pairs, each twisted pair will give you one telephone line. You will have 4 telephone lines per location.
