Okayyy so the 'rents are putting in a huge 2 story addition to there home .
I was tasked with the LV wiring and also the install .
considering I was handed a semi blank check to do my best .
I have really had some fun with playing admin and larry the cable guy .
first things first ........ Out goes the 54G combo router ( stuck in a metal box )
In goes a zyzel Network firewall / 3G fallback/ router
This feeds a 8 port netgear prosafe gigibit switch for the old home .
1 feeds a engenius A/P with PoE ......... this is the main house WiFI
the other 5 out of 6 left is for the main house's CAT5 eth jacks on the walls ......... ( at Least they put in SOME kinda cables )
hen Over to the side house .
I ran 2 CAT6 STP for the data and a spare CAT5e for the telco and spare .
this is fed off the firewall router .
The CAT6 feeds a 24Port gigiabit switch for feeding in to the eth jacks .
what a nice rack peter .
Every room If it needs data Gets 2 CAT6 STP and 2 CAT5e UTP
( I wanted to go all 6 but I ran outta cable )
you may ask Why I did all this .........
One ...... SIP phones !!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes I have the POTS loop in to the new place BUT still
this is 2013 not '86 Lets use some fun stuff that can be config on the fly .
Two . cable is cheap ........... dirt cheap. stuff the walls full ....
you can alwas not use it .
Now on to the theatre .
1080P native 2200 Lumen 3LCD epison projector with a planned 90 ish screen size .
5.1 sound .
amp has a RF remote with android and iOS and network mgmt
500 GB music /movie server ..............
Well that covers most of the LV wires I am doing
Me thinks this is gonna make a sweet tv .
The sub house rack is getting a UPS ..... so is the main closit .
I HATE those small metal closets soo much . if it looks messy its casue I have not got in the new cable modem so I need to do some cable fueng shei when I do the final Rev ......
