Smart Home Cabling- Smart Home Installations- Smart Home Panels


American Tech Supply Wants To Thank ATEK Communications For Providing These Photos Describing In Detail How A Smart Home Is Built and Smart Cable Is Installed Along With Smart Panels


Stage At Which Smart Home Cable Needs To Be Installed-Just After Studs Are Put Up But Before Sheet Rock Is Installed


Smart Home Cable- In this photo ATEK is installing Commscope's (2) CAT5e, (2) RG 6 and (2) Multimode Fiber Optic Cable-Cable is rolled off 500 Foot Spools on Job-site



ATEK Supervisor carefully monitors installation of Smart Home Cable throughout the job


First Option Is To Pull Multiple Runs Of CAT 5E and Coax RG 6 Cable Thru Studs-Separately- This is "OK" For Short Runs- and is also more economical as far as material cost -but more time consuming-so labor costs are higher.


Second Option Is To Use Commscope's Multiple Media Smart Cable Which May Cost Little More than The Previous Photo But Saves Enormously On Labor and Quality Of Work

Example Of Multiple Cable Runs In A Commercial Building Using Commscope's (2) CAT5e, (2) Coax RG 6 and (2) Multimode Fiber Cables

In this photo- Smart Cable is installed between floors using Fire-Rated "Fire Stop Caulking"

Cables Are Terminated -Then Tested To Sure They All Meet EIA-TIA 568A and B Specifications




CAT 5e Cable and Coax Cable Are Carefully Pulled Then Mounted and "Punched Down" at the Patch Panel- Then The Cables are "Dressed" To Secure the Cable and make them look aesthetically pleasing to look at.


In This Photo- Smart Patch Panels or "Cans" Are Placed In A Commercial Garage And Are locked Up

Cables are "punched" down on "media" Panels consisting of 8 or 12 Port Coax Panels or 8 or 12 Port Telephone Modiles that distribute the telephone, data, video, surveillance, Satellite TV, entertainment,lighting, or coax broadband/coax high speed data service to variuos parts of the house. You can plug and play" your needs throughout the house.

Remember To Have Your Contractor Cover the Wallplates After Cable Termination and Testing- This Will Keep Paint Overspray From Damaging Your Outlets
