Many newer homes have “structure wiring”. Smart homes require space for equipment so if you want your entertainment, lighting, communications and security systems connected and accessible from your portable electronic devices plan a closet or space with easy door access for this additional equipment. This hub is where all the cables from Cox, CenturyLink or a satellite dish are interconnected to the outlets in each room for you telephones, TV’s, Internet and computers. New equipment is available that is wireless and taking up much less space but planning is necessary.
