New tools and techniques have been developed to permit the clean, efficient, economical installation of a structured wiring system in an existing home. This 2-hour video, tailored to installers, shows how.
The video first illustrates in some detail how houses are built. Then, using a mock-up of a two story house with crawl space and attic, the video describes the use of modern tools and techniques for running wire without tearing up the walls and ceilings.
Finally, installation of structured wiring systems is shown in three homes - one 75-year-old home with balloon construction; one of post-World War II vintage with many add-ons; and finally the ultimate test - a home on a slab, with solid walls and no attic.

The video discusses the construction and properties of twisted pair and coaxial cable used in structured wiring systems, including connectors for each. Other components of a system are described - central distribution devices, outlets, audio equipment, etc. Design and testing of residential networks are covered extensively.
The various steps in the planning process are described and illustrated. Finally, installation techniques are shown for two new homes - in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Atlanta, Georgia. This 1- hour, 37 minute video is tailored to installers.
