IT installation, including home entertainment systems and internet points, is pretty key for most of us,and if it can be done well and neatly – what a pleasure! If you’re about to renovate, it’s an even better time to sort it and get all those wires hidden.
The team from Tekkie Help recently worked on a four-storey house in Singapore, installing eight access points throughout the home, plus an IP camera system for security purposes. Their customer Chandru Tilani had reached out at the ideal time – during the planning stages of his renovation. Tekkie says this is the optimal time to plan your network and IT architectural layout, as you can look at where you need Wi-Fi coverage, the ideal position for access points, cameras, TVs, power and so on.
Early planning means that all the unsightly wires can be concealed and the best results achieved for coverage – and for less disruption in the future. What Tekkie Help did After an initial site visit to determine where to position the cameras and access points to ensure seamless and strong coverage throughout, they then liaised with the contractors and interior designer to ensure all the CAT6 cables and power sockets were laid in the correct places during the build.
High-quality Wi-Fi access points were installed in strategic locations using sleek circular round access points on the ceilings, which are very discreet – no back routers or wires on surfaces! Tekkie Help can install Wi-Fi equipment in homes and offices that allows them to remotely monitor the network and troubleshoot, while at the same time ensuring confidentiality around data and user activity. The team also installed high-quality IP security cameras with very high resolution and night vision, including mobile access and footage recorded onto a hard drive. All the equipment was wired back to the main distribution point and housed in a well-ventilated equipment rack – neat and tidy and tucked away.
The family’s TV and multimedia home entertainment is on an Annual Home Maintenance Plan so the system is routinely checked for updates and security patches; the Tekkie team physically cleans out the equipment and conducts computer “health checks”.
A word from the customer
“The setup in my home is fantastic,” says Chandru, “and aside from great performance, what we also like is that all the wires are nicely concealed and out of sight.
“They’re a fantastic team – very humble, patient, knowledgeable, cooperative and responsive. And Mr Bo at the helm has a five-star personality and is a gentleman. They have all the latest tech knowhow, and their work and recommendations are way ahead of many other tech providers. You get the sincerity from Tekkie that’s sadly lacking in many other companies.
