Pre-Wire Your New Home: Plan For The Future
Chapter 3: The Absolute Minimum - and Why
Author: David Feller

This is the second installment of a multi-part series covering all aspects of low voltage wiring in the home: entertainment, security, automation, and future planning. A new section will be published every few weeks.

If you are building a new home or finishing a basement and want to make sure you are covered for the basics, this chapter is for you.

Even if you are a minimalist, every home needs phone, TV, doorbell, and at least support for internet. Forget about you having sworn off TV, you have to put in at least the basic services for resell value. I hear from realtors all the time that the lack of phone and cable outlets in each room is frequently a turnoff in older homes.

This section attempts to provide the future homeowner with the tradeoffs between keeping costs low and providing as much functionality and planning for future needs. We highly suggest that you read through the other chapters that go through other home systems and options before you complete your home plan, but please - at least put in what is in this chapter for the sake of the next owner of your home.
