Our Data Cabling Services
Our team of technicians at North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical are qualified and highly skilled in the analysis, design, and construction of cable paths and socket installation locations. This service includes selecting the best cable type to suit not only your needs but your budget too. With more and more electrical appliances now introducing internet capabilities a lot of homes are turning into smart homes. To take advantage of these technologically advanced products, such as a refrigerator capable of ordering groceries or an app on your phone that allows you to control your lights and air conditioning, you will need to connect them to your network. If this is the future you see for your home, it’s important that you have a capable Wi-Fi connection with limited latency, and we can help you with that by installing or upgrading your data points, run new cable or repair the existing one, connect new NBN or MDF (main distribution frame) and more. We can also connect new PSTN, ISDN and VoIP Lines from MDF through to your business as well as repair or upgrade EFTPOS and security cables.

Things to Consider with New Installations
Before installing any new phone or data points in your home or office, there are a few things that need to be considered and we can walk through these with you on the day when we visit your property.
#1. The position of your NBN connection box
Your NBN box connects to the Wi-Fi router that you receive from your internet service provider. The location of your NBN connection box should be placed somewhere that the Wi-Fi signal can be distributed evenly around your home without the use of a booster.
#2. The location of your phone & data points
When our team from North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical come out to install new points or upgrade existing ones, we may give you advice on the best location so as to reduce installation time and receive a significantly more reliable connection. Hard wired data access points may serve you better than Wi-Fi so it is a good idea to consider RJ45 sockets close to your television or computer.

By far the most common antenna service we are called out for, TV antenna installations are intended to offer crystal clear reception through the UHF and VHF brands. These are positioned in a straight line toward your nearest signal transmitting station and it is vital that a qualified electrician installs these. Outdoor antennas, or aerials, can be installed on the roof, in your attic or on the side of your home in either directional or multi-directional styles. Directional antennas are the ones that point toward the broadcasting tower to receive the signal whereas multi-directional can capture the signal no matter where they are pointing.
Reception problems may occur when blockades such as trees, other buildings or mountains are in the pathway of your aerial. These blockades will weaken your reception, however, whether you’ve got analogue or digital, our team at North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical can help you find a solution to ensure better quality reception through higher superiority aerial masts, receivers or amplifiers as well as advising on location for installation to ensure that trees and buildings are not in the way.
