Even seven or eight years ago, smart home technology was practically unimaginable for the average person. Having all of your devices, appliances, and electricity connected to the same network so that you can lock your doors, run the dishwasher, and turn on the lights all in one place! Who could have thought of that? The convenience is unmatched. But pulling it off requires an efficient electrical system in your home. Including wiring. So, today we’re going to talk about smart home wiring – what it is, what it’s like, and who can install it for you.
Smart Home Wiring Definition
First, let’s get a better idea of what is smart home wiring. It’s a system that allows you to combine many different types of wires used around the home into a single platform. This enables the integration of many different smart home systems and sensors throughout your home, and the capacity to add more later. However, this will cost less if it’s done during renovations, or when your home is being built. That’s because electricians can do all of the necessary pre-wiring work before the walls and appliances go up. Nevertheless, it can still be done retroactively.

Second, how does home wiring work, and what are some helpful tips? It all starts with the rack or control system in your home. This box works like the brain of the entire operation. You’ll need to have everything in your home connected to it somehow. This includes:
- Any satellites, solar panels, or security cameras on your roof.
- Speakers, TVs, cable boxes, and gaming systems in your living room, bedrooms, and patio.
- Your thermostat.
- The lights in each room of your home.
- Your garage door.
- The front door.
- Any kitchen or home appliances you want connected.
- Think about your home from room to room. Anything you want to be able to control with your smart home system will need to be connected to the control box.
