Publisher Comments:

The most complete, up-to-date resource for home technology integration and home automation available, Residential Integrator's Guide to Digital Home Technology Integration explores how the latest high-tech systems converge to create integrated, whole-home unified systems. With a focus on installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance, coverage includes LANs, internet connectivity, video and audio systems, telephone systems, security systems, lighting controls, and more. The book first focuses on the basics of each technology segment, what it does, and how its various components work, and then progresses to explain how to connect these components into a unified working system that accomplishes a specific function. This instruction culminates in the ultimate in home technology integration fundamentals: it reveals how all home technologies can be integrated in a single home automation and communication system that provides maximum performance in all areas, while staying within the budget of the average home owner. Designed for the professional installer who wants to obtain DHTI+ certification or do-it-yourself home owners, the book's straightforward writing style and comprehensive approach make this a valuable resource.
