Leviton Network Solutions, a division of Leviton Manufacturing Inc., this week launched a new Structured Media Centre Planning Worksheet, which it says helps contractors, distributors, and homeowners design their structured wiring networks.

The new online resource incorporates all of a homeowners connected devices – from HDTVs and VoIPs to gaming consoles and streaming audio and video – and provides a practical approach for today’s ultra-connected lifestyle, Leviton says.

It allows users to specify the device details of their space such as type of television service, number of data locations, type of audio system, home theater arrangement, and type of security system.

Based on this information, Leviton  then would provide a customized bill of materials with complete product summaries, including the enclosure, routers, distribution boards, power supplies, and patch cables needed to install a custom network. Both standard and premium network equipment is available, so users can determine what capacity for growth they want to include, the company said

“Homeowners now expect their homes to be wired for quick and secure connectivity,” said Jeff Lechtanski, marketing manager at Leviton Network Solutions.
