CEDIA Structured Cabling Assessor
New Cable Certification Service
Ashway Smart Homes are pleased to announce that they are now accredited to assess and formally certify all recognised grades of CEDIA Smart Home Cabling installations.
A little help please?
This new service has been set-up to support the recently launched CEDIA Recommended Wiring Guidelines – aimed at providing ALL homeowners, builders, electricians and developers with guidance for the installation of the cabling infrastructure that is important to support today’s digital and connected lifestyles.
After all, mistakes can be costly so it is vital to get the cabling infrastructure correct the first time round.
Whilst we would always recommend that you talk to a CEDIA specialist such as ourselves as soon as possible in your project life-cycle, we do appreciate that this is not always a convenient option from some builders.
The GOOD news is that any property that has been wired in line with the CEDIA Recommended Wiring Guidelines can then be assessed by ourselves and a recognised Smart Home Certificate will subsequently be issued direct from CEDIA UK to all properties that meet the associated grade.
More about CEDIA’s Recommended Wiring Guide
This new publication provides a useful and practical step-by-step guide that identifies the key requirements for an installation and defines three grades of recommended cabling infrastructure.
Ensures the effective and reliable delivery of internet services, home networking, TV, satellite, radio, telephone, conferencing and other entertainment services to most rooms in the house.
Infrastructure will additionally provide the capability for whole-home distribution of audio-visual content using discrete in-ceiling speakers and in-wall control points.
Functionality is further extended to embrace lighting control, motorised curtains and blinds, access control systems, CCTV networks, environmental and heating control, as well as systems that allow these technologies to be controlled and integrated by a single control system using in-wall controls and hand-held remote devices.
Through a clearly defined staged process and using explanatory diagrams, the document outlines the incoming services and the planning, cabling and testing essentials which should be followed for each Grade.
Once installed, a qualified CEDIA Structured Cabling Assessor such as Ashway Smart Homes can be called in to provide independent verification and testing of the cabling infrastructure to ensure it is fit for purpose.
