Believing These 9 Myths About Low Voltage System Keeps You From Growing

Low voltage systems include but aren’t limited to: access control, security, CCTV, burglary, fire, PA, intercom, nurse call, network, phone, data, along with other local and remote notification systems. While progress has been made in wireless technologies, the primary, & most secure, and reliable installations, if not the most economical, are hard wired systems.

For commercial and industrial low voltage installations, the field wiring, device mounting, and panel installations are a major part of the installation. While these tasks must be completed in accordance with customer specifications, local building, fire, electrical, and other codes, they are typically pretty standard and require little technical understanding of the specific system terminations, power, testing and operation.

Most commercial and industrial low voltage system dealers, vendors and integrators have invested substantially in training their technicians on the technical aspects of installing, maintaining and operating the systems they enhance. Depending on the work schedule, including service calls and maintenance contracts, using technicians for the essential wiring tasks is probably not the best scheduling, financial and customer relations option. Unless business is in a slow period, and technicians need to be gainfully employed rather than not working, keep them scheduled on tasks that want their technical abilities and challenges their abilities.

The options for completing the routine wire and field device installation and mounting include hiring skilled but non-technical employees, using electrical contractors, hiring from the temp agency or finding a sub-contractor that knows and understands low voltage systems that can be trusted to set up the systems when and how you want them installed.

As low voltage system technician, project manager, project engineer and finally area manager, I know the importance of the installation of the fundamentals and how it can and will have an impact on the machine operation. While hiring general skilled labor for the basic is a good option because it affords the opportunity to control the entire installation, this option drives up the overall cost of labor that can’t be recovered when business is slow and these employees have limited project tasks.

Temporary agencies can provide the help required when business is brisk, but this can be a crap shoot. You can supply the required abilities you are looking for, but what you get may or may not be able or willing to provide the services you have to accomplish the installation.

Electrical contractors have the data, experience; know the codes, and wiring methods. They are able to provide the services you will need but they may or may possibly not be reasonably priced, provide their finest people for the projects, or be able to meet your schedule.

The last and best alternative would be to sub-contract with a company that has experience with low voltage systems, knows the requirements of customer satisfaction, building codes, installation methods, understands the partnership you have with your customers and the only real cost is for actual services performed and contains no additional costs when business is slow. ติดตั้งระบบไฟฟ้า This solution supplies the best options of the electrical contractor, temporary agency, and non-technical employees.
