Walked a job today for a new client. They moved into a model home with onQ keypads throughout the house, and the OnQ lyriQ distribution panel in the smart panel closet.
But... in the family room, under the TV, they have this cabinet (barely deep enough to house components) packed to the brim with components, wiring, extension cords,
etc. Place is a mess. Looked like a tornado hit it, then Charter came and did there magic. Modem, router, cable box, splitter, way to long of wires... all stacked on top of each other. **** was bad. I didn't dive in too deep, but did notice this. Really had no clue, as I had never seen this before. What is this, and why is it here?
Since onQ works by running speaker wire off of the powered Wall Plates to the In Ceiling Speakers, there should be none of this wire in this cabinet.
The only thing I can think of, is that they are using this to power the keypads. onQ makes a powered device that usually is in the smart panel, then you run 16/4 to the keypads to give them power. But, it was not in there.. just the distribution panel and a switch.
Are they using this for the same thing? I was unable to trace the one input speaker line ( in the middle) , because of the tangled mess.
