We never install a smart home solution without a detailed smart home design, a written document which spells out for you:

This design removes any surprises – you know exactly what you are getting, how it all fits together, and all costs. We work closely with your builder, architect, or designer as required.

Eastech will:

  • Prepare Equipment list
  • Define Room configuration
  • Specify Interconnection cabling and specifications
  • Identify any pre-requisites, requirements and limitations that you might need to be aware of.

We will install a comprehensive wiring infrastructure to support your smart home. We incorporate as much future-proofing as possible. Our wiring is Eastech Smart-Certified, meaning it meets our high standards for quality. Where a third party installs the wiring, Eastech conducts a formal inspection, and supplies a deficiency report for correction. We can even certify third-party wiring.

Design Based Wiring

All Eastech wiring is based on a comprehensive design that takes into account the planned equipment that will be used on the wires, and how they will be used. Are cable TV boxes and DVD players to be shared among multiple TV sets? Is the TV high-definition? Could cameras or iPods be used on this cable? What is the maximum allowable length for the intended usage? For example, a remote temperature sensor will require a particularly heavy cable to report accurately.

Future Proofing

What will we need once the children are older? Will be ever sell this home? What if I finish the basement or put in a swimming pool in the future? How is the internet likely to be used? We future-proof the home by planning wire runs and special cable types that may not be used today, but are there for future use, or in the event the home is put up for sale.

Audio/Visual Requirements

Today’s modern A/V equipment has special requirements, particularly HDMI cable for high-definition TV. Our wire choices and methods are based on the requirements of the intended A/V equipment. Some cable types and qualities affect picture colour or brightness. Different signal types, such as Component and HDMI, have specific distance and cable type requirements. Will HDCP (copy protection) run properly on these wires? When to use Cat5e versus Cat6e internet? How does sound fidelity degrade based on cable type? We often even change the cable type based on the length of a given run.


Eastech will test and certify, in writing, that the cables are intact and operational before and after drywall installation. We will identify any post-drywall breaks and damage
