Are You TechReady?

TechReady homeThe planning is done for your new addition, you’re ready to start, but have you thought of everything before you begin? One area often overlooked in the planning phase is the structured cabling component. You may not think about it as the construction moves forward, but you will notice it when the renovation is complete and you have not installed the proper infrastructure in the walls to meet your technology requirements.

This is where TechReady planning is a huge benefit to the positive outcome of your renovation. TechReady systems, unlike conventional cabling systems, provide maximum flexibility for users to move voice, data and video services throughout the home. Homeowners who want to maximize the technology in their homes can consult with their renovator or installer during the planning and design stage of the addition in order to add options, including provisions for satellite television, home theatre, remote access, home controls, and much more.

“TechReady is not just about wiring your home, it is an investment in your home and its value – which will benefit you now and well into the future,” says Paul Pettipas, chief executive officer of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association. “TechReady will have a positive impact on the resale value of your home, but it also provides you with comfort and a lifestyle that suits your family’s growing technological needs.”

TechReady is a joint initiative between the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association and Bell Aliant designed to train contrators
and installers to build and renovate TechReady homes, and to educate consumers on the value of installing structured cabling in their new home or addition.

A TechReady home has something for everyone of all ages and is not limited to the young technology savvy consumers. Having a TechReady home allows your home to grow as your needs change.
