Home Prewire FAQs
Why should I consider prewiring my home?
Prewiring your home allows you to install wiring for various systems, such as audio, video, and security, before the walls are finished. This can make it easier and less expensive to install these systems later on. Having the proper wiring in place allows you to have the flexibility too add any product or system, as opposed to being limited to wireless systems which are suboptimal in many applications.
At what stage of construction should prewiring be done?
Prewiring should be done during the construction phase, before the walls are finished. This allows for easy installation of wiring without having to cut into walls or ceilings.
Can you prewire an existing home?
Yes, it is possible to prewire an existing home, but it can be more challenging and more expensive than prewiring a home during the construction phase.
Is prewiring worth the cost?
Prewiring can be a worthwhile investment if you plan on installing audio, video, or security systems in the future. It can save you time and money on installation costs and make it easier to upgrade your home's systems.
The size of your home is a key factor to consider when choosing a prewire package. If you have a larger home, you'll likely benefit from the comprehensive pre-wiring system included in the CAVES Gold package. This package is designed to support a variety of technology needs, including whole-house audio, home theaters or surround sound systems, and WiFi-inclusive home networks. If you have a moderate-sized home, the CAVES Silver package is a great option, as it provides all the essential features at a lower price point. For smaller homes, the CAVES Bronze package is a perfect fit.
Your technology needs are another important factor to consider when choosing a package. For example, if you want to enjoy high-quality audio entertainment in your living space, both the CAVES Gold and Silver packages include multiple audio zones pre-wired for speakers. The CAVES Gold package also includes a surround sound prewire in both the Great Room and Family/Theater Room. If you're prioritizing home security, all three packages include security panel prewiring and camera locations prewiring. The CAVES Gold package also includes additional features such as WiFi-inclusive home networks, making it the best choice for homeowners who prioritize smart home technology.
Budget is always an important factor to consider when choosing a prewire package. If you're on a tight budget, the CAVES Bronze package is the most budget-friendly option. It includes essential prewiring for security systems, cameras, in-home WiFi, and one surround sound system in a location of your choice. The CAVES Silver package is a bit more comprehensive, providing prewiring for 4 audio zones, 2 WiFi access points, and additional surround sound systems. The CAVES Gold package is our most comprehensive, and therefore most expensive option, but includes all the features of the Bronze and Silver packages plus prewiring for additional surround sound systems and WiFi-inclusive home networks.
