Do I need a low voltage specialty technician or a general electrician?

Low voltage systems are a sub-specialty to the general commercial electrical trade, requiring expertise and knowledge about fast-changing technologies that many non-specialty electrical contractors do not maintain. Low voltage systems are critical infrastructures to support safety and deter theft specifically when it comes to self-storage, MDU/apartment.

There are unlimited factors to know and understand when designing a low voltage network. Access control, camera surveillance, network, telephone, Wi-Fi access, video and audio components require a wiring network that is separate and apart from standard electrical wiring. We are experts at designing and installing low voltage systems that provide efficient pathways for all your access control and digital security technology systems to connect, communicate, and share your business data.

Frequently asked questions about low voltage system design:

We install and service a variety of low voltage cabling types, including coaxial, copper, fiber optic, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat7. These cables support access control, Wi-Fi/data networks, IP Surveillance (CCTV) Cameras, VoIP phones, video, and custom needs we define in almost all business operations.

The most common business applications that require low voltage cabling are access control, voice and telephone systems, wired and Wi-Fi networks, television cable, security and surveillance cameras, and audiovisual equipment.

The most common low voltage wire gauges used in access control are 24, 22, 18, and 16 AWG sizes. Access control cables for primary control components such as card readers, door contacts, REX and locking power/retinal scan operators typically require a combination of several different types of low voltage cables. The specific configuration of cables depends on the mix of devices used at the door.
