Structured Wiring Consultation Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

How do I purchase this service?
  • Check our consulting schedule
  • Purchase this service on our website
  • email us (sales@BroadbandUtopia.net) or fax us (1-866-340-8417) your home plan and request a consulting slot. Please make sure you give us at least 24 hours to review your home plan.

How does the service work?
  • By asking you the relevant questions about your new home and how you intend to use it, we will gather your requirements.
  • We will go back to the drawing board and draw a network diagram to show the structured wiring solution for your home. We will also come up with a list of components and cables you need to build this solution.
  • We will send you the network diagram and components list and discuss the solution we came up with on our next call

How will I benefit me?
Building a new home? Use our independent advise and structured wiring design to compare against all of the low-voltage wiring (phone/data/audio/video)that your builder is providing. We represent your interests and will help you build your networking infrastructure right the first time.

Building a custom home? Remodeling? Use our custom designed structured wiring solution to get accurate estimates from local contractors, compare them and save. Use our complete part list to get components ordered and your project completed on time.

During what phase in the construction of a new home should I get this service?
Ideally, just after the first meeting with your construction manager. To get the maximum benefit of our advise you should have our solution before any of the electrical work has begun. This is done prior to the drywall going up. If you are late into the construction cycle and are really serious about Structured Wiring, (and your builder did'nt put one in) talk to your builder and see if they are willing to work with you. It is still not too late.

What if my builder does not allow customization?
If you are building a spec home, you may be able to sway the decision your way by agreeing to supply the network design, components and cabling. Components and cabling for a 2500 Sq. Feet home will average $1000. This is a small price to pay to get the custom structured wiring. Structured wiring usually appreciates your home value by 1-2 %.

What is expected from me
Your home plan, you need to be familiar with it and you need to send us a copy. You need to put some thought into the location of the entertainment and communication appliances in each room. A discussion with your spouse and kids usually helps. Some customers call us for the first consultation from their construction site(if you do then please take safety precautions and please make sure your mobile phone can last the duration of the call).

Does the Structured Wiring service include home automation?
No, this service does not provide home automation design. Our structured wiring solution is a building block for home automation.
