I'm almost certainly over-thinking this, but nonetheless would appreciate your thoughts and experiences with renting out (or renting) a house with structured cabling.
We bought the house two or so years ago, and I've retrofitted it with F-type coax and RJ45 outlets throughout the house coming to a central patch panel accompanied by the fibre ONT - pretty standard geekzone setup. We're moving out of the city, so will be property managing remotely/via family. I'm happy to support the tenants make use of the patching system by phone advise, writing a bit of a guide, and providing a bunch of short patch leads.
I'm not fussed if they don't use the system, but want to avoid any cowboy cable runs (i.e. SkyTV) and it's pretty likely the tenants will have to use the system to plug in a landline phone or router.
- Should I leave a bunch of RJ45-BT adapter (i.e. the ol' 'PABX master') to make it simpler for plugging in phones, rather than RJ45-RJ11?
- How common is it to have more than one POTS phone/device these days? I'm not sure how to provide for splitting the POTS signal as I don't have any spare patch panel ports
- If the tenants want to get Sky installed, how much luck will I have requiring the Sky Installer to use the existing in-wall cabling rather than an awful exterior cable run? Are Sky installers familiar with structured cabling?
- Is there a great guide to using a home structured cabling system that I should be aware of?
