If you would like a hard-wired low voltage system in your home that provides a higher level of security and reliability. SAFERhome Standards offers the two supplemental criteria that measures and recognizes the full access technologies ready home. When all the low-voltage (telephone, cable, security) home runs meet in one place they make the home smart ready. Putting all the wires on one wall or in one closet with an A/C receptacle gives you open wiring network design.
This gives the homeowner the ability to use electricity not only for energy savings but also for independent seniors aging-in-place lifestyle needs. The other benefit is that the house will have the ability to cross-communicate with any current/future or proprietary technology’s. The SAFERhome Standards recommend and measure for at least one extra telephone line to the front door bell position from where all the other low voltage wires meet.
