Cable management and STOCKHOLM TV stand? [R]

Sept. 26, 2019

I’m really digging the STOCKHOLM TV stand from IKEA. My only concern is cable management. I don’t have an outlet directly behind the wall I would be putting the stand on; I’m currently running an extension cord from an outlet 3-4’ away.

I worry about the aesthetics of having to run extension cords under it and it looking terrible. Does anyone with the stand have that issue? How have you managed that?

You can always get those cord raceway kits at Home Depot/Lowe’s or https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Concealer-Wall-Cover-Raceway/dp/B01JKO8724 and just run them against the wall or floor. Additionally you can hang a surge protector to either the wall or tv stand using command strips and plug in your electronics into that. You would then need to just zip tie the cables so they don’t lay on the floor.

for sure man

dunno if this is a thing based on the unknown size of the domicile you are currently in, but if you or other residents were having issues with connecting to Wifi or it's speeds, i would mount the router higher than it is to extend it's range and reduce interference. For the power and ethernet cables that will have to go back down to the floor, you can utilize cable organizers like this to hide them neatly

Cabling an office without a raised floor [R]

3 months, 3 weeks agoCpotter07 posted submission on networking.
Aug. 13, 2019

Our last office had a raised floor so we could run all the cabling under the floor and have it pop out in a box under the desk.

Our latest office has cabling run all the walls in trunking, and rows of wall ports near the desks.

This has worked, but obviously means all desks need to be touching the walls otherwise you have cabling running over the carpet.

We have another office build due in October and I want to look at other options such as running cabling down poles or something.

What are you all doing in an office space without raised flooring?

They make a few things for this if it does look tacky to me personally if you do not do it correctly or order the correct color/design to match your office but there are things like.

1.) CABLE CONCEALERS - https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Concealer-Wall-Cover-Raceway/dp/B01JKO8724

2.) WIRE TRACKS - https://www.audioholics.com/trade-shows/2005-cedia-expo/wiretracks-molding-wiring-channels

5.) TELEPOWER POLES - https://www.legrand.us/categories/wireandcablemanagement/poles-and-columns/aluminum-tele-power-poles.aspx

6.) POWER/DATA POLES - https://www.pinterest.com/pin/133348838942190815/

these are my favorite come in tons of nice designs that look amazing in offices!

7.) SPACE SYSTEM POWER POLES - https://www.fastofficefurniture.com.au/office-furniture/electrical-components/space-system-power-pole/

These I use the most since they are just plain white/black/brown square boxes that connect to the roof and connects directly to cubicles or the floor and run power/data/phone anything down these with lots of extra room they are simply easy to install but very plain looking.

Any ideas with lighting? The brown wall on the right is 3/4 inch drywall on top of concrete so there will be wires showing if we hang a light there. Maybe a light on ceiling? There will still be wires showing though. Might be a bit tight for floor lamps. I’m stumped please give me ideas!!! [R]

Once you have everything settled in, check out wall cable management raceways. I have a similar arrangement to yours, and after ordering some longer hdmi calbes, used this to tidy everything up: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JKO8724/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I painted it to match my wall color, and it made everything look really nice. If I did it again though, I would order the next size up though.

Maybe flip the bag seat thing/table/Roomba so you can sit in the bag and look outside easier? Also it's probably overkill but it'd be cool if you could hide that cord going to the speaker. Putting it in the wall would be difficult but you could use one of these (don't get that specifically cause you can get it cheaper, that's just the first link I found). Nice room overall I really like the things on the wall.

Cable box in attic. Yay or nay? [R]

11 months, 3 weeks agofxelite posted submission on HomeImprovement.
Dec. 13, 2018

Hello, HomeImprovement!

So, I already mounted our television in our living room, free of unsightly wires via going through the drywall behind the television and snaking cables, creating a power outlet, etc. We've been running the television off WiFi for a while now.

I've been thinking about whether to throw our cable box (Verizon) into the attic above the ceiling in our living room, but I'm not sure if the box can withstand the temps during the winter and summer. I'm mainly concerned about the summer temps as I know electronics heat up and the winter is 'most likely' fine.

I'm also not sure if the remote will even work through the ceiling layers of drywall and wooden joists. I imagine it would be ok.

Any thoughts on this?

Dec. 13, 2018

If it blows just go up there and grab it and hook it up by the tv for the cable guy to check/replace. Take the new box back up there when you get a new one.

Seems like a lot of work to me but the cable company will never know how or why it died.

Personally I would just get a small table to put under the tv and run the one hdmi up to it and cover it with one of these.

I have the same issue with the monitor. I plan to mount high on the wall, plug behind a piece of furniture ( we have an ikea shelf turned on its side with soft storage bins for clothes storage- secured to the wall) and I will get one of these to cover the wiring. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JKO8724/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_VFseCbQ5GQ556

If the furniture idea doesn't work, I had thought about having an electrician come in and run a outlet high up on the wall.

My dog just broke my old cat5e cable and was looking to upgrade. I see that cat7 cables are pretty cheap on Amazon and you can get them braided and flat, that might make it last a little longer for me.

My question is would Cat7 work in older devices from around 7 years ago? I plan to use it on my old PC. It will be running from my router to my old PC about 30ft away. I'm in the process of building a new PC, but just want to make sure it will actually work on my old PC in the mean time

Alright then, here's mine in all its humble glory. Cables from tv, cd/dvd, and turntable are concealed within white snap-together cable/cord concealer (no power cords) along the baseboard. Otherwise everything is organized and secured with Velcro tie/straps behind the media console, and with the audio rack. The power cords are sorted, bound, and routed along the side of the rack to keep them separated from the low voltage cabling, which is routed through the holes in the center-back of the rack shelves, likewise Velcro tied, and wrapped with velcro/neoprene wrapper. It's not as end-game cable management as I'd like, but I'm still searching for that prefec solution.

I want to add that OP can also use cable raceways to hide the cords. With the mismatched plugs and high-vis location of that outlet, running a raceway to the far left wall would be a good, clean solution.

They’re modular and stick to the wall with adhesive backing, so when you move out, you just yank them off and throw them in the trash.

Are you renting? Because I would pay someone to rerun the the outlets if you own the place. Or be gutsy and see if you can run a passthrough yourself. Something like this (I wouldn't get this exact one)

If not, you'll need a cable management solution. Two options: Run straight up and over the ledge or down. If you go down, run the cables to the floor and then right angel along the baseboard toward the window. At the corner, head back up over the ledge to the wall, and back toward where you have the tv.

Either way, with all the AV equipment you will have there, you might actually want a piece of furniture to hide it all. Some cabinet that is very low profile or something that can function usefully in another way. Like a bench with a hidden storage area.

Lastly, where you are putting the TV currently might not even be the best place for it to be honest -no idea, can tell from the images provided. A floor plan or other pics to show the space would help.

Moving to a house build in late 1800s, chicken wire in the walls and all, two stories, about 2200sq ft.

I won't be able to run new cables at all, so I'll have to rely entirely on WiFi, some sort of mesh/wireless uplink set up. Service connection will in the basement, so I will have to rely on wireless to reach all the way to the second floor.

One option I looked at is daisy-chaining a bunch of Unifi's. I also saw that TP-Link EAP-225 outperforms Unifis but can those have the same functionality? Any other suggestions? Powerline?

Have a clean white wall that I'm planning on projecting a picture on with a single sound bar wall-mounted at the bottom of where this screen will be. There will be several wires (2x Chromecasts, 2 usb power, 1 HDMI, 1 power) and I'm thinking it will be extremely hard to conceal that just between the speaker and wall.

Easy solution. They should be white to match the base boards. They have double sided tape on one side that keeps them on the wall. I’ll warn you though it is super sticky. You can also pain the tubes to match the wall color if needed.

Probably just some sort of cord concealer that is for walls. It won't be as clean but will be much better.

Depending on the layout of the room(s) you are looking to do it in, the owner may let you do the in-wall option. People seem to be mounting TVs frequently and could it be considered a nice feature. Worst case scenario would be about $50 or less in materials to patch the holes.

Any recommendations would be appreciated [R]

if there is enough slack, try running the cable up in a single line rather than 2. The best answer would be to drill a hole and run it behind the wall but that sometimes isnt an option. Also this https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Concealer-Wall-Cover-Raceway/dp/B01JKO8724

Apartment comes with free cable, but the cable jack is in a stupid spot. What are my options? [R]

I'd have to run about 20 feet of cable to connect my television to the cable outlet because of the way my furniture is set up. I'm only pretending to know what I'm talking about, but is there any way to wirelessly connect my TV to the cable outlet?

Also, if there's a better sub to post this in, feel free to scream at me about it and/or point me in the right direction. Thank you!

Even better is this stuff...

Its more expensive, but looks a ton better than wire clips. If you do it right, you can make it blend in with the door trim.

You should buy some cable concealers then get them painted to match your wall. Not better than hiding them in the walls obviously, but it's the best you can do for renting a place.

Best way to mount Panasonic Ar100u? [R]

We've never had a projector before & happened across this one on the side of the road in a fancy neighborhood.

It didn't come with an A/C cord or remote, but we were able to get the cord for $6 on Amazon & it works perfectly. Currently trying to figure out how to mount it as we planned to hook it up to the Xbox one & use a blank wall in our living room as the screen. We considered a ceiling mount above the couch but it would be too much of a hassle to climb up to turn it on/off every time. Is there a universal remote we can buy for it?

Or any alternatives (a heavy duty shelf?). I considered just keeping it on a bar cart & rolling it out when we used it but my partner thinks it would be too messy w/the wires everywhere.

You can run it in the wall (the HDMI anyway). Cord concealer raceway also works: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Concealer-Wall-Cover-Raceway/dp/B01JKO8724

Don't run power (extension cords) in the ceiling/wall, that you want an electrician to do.

You could also just run some cable hide strip like this. And if you really want to make it disappear get a paint sample from the wall to match the paint and cover the strips. It will really clean up the appearance.

This is a 100% improvement OP. The chair and the bigger sofa were the perfect change. The Ikea lamp ties in with the bigger furniture and doesn't feel so big and overwhelming like it did before. Extremely well done.

Couple more suggestions, I would route the rear speaker wires behind the painting too and then down the middle. Then use a cable cover that runs from the bottom of the art down behind the couch to conceal the cords. Purchase a couple of patterned/accent pillows and throws to add some color to the room and you're money.

Can anybody recommend white cable designed to be "invisible" foe use with wall mounted tablets? [R]

How about Wiremold raceway instead? They make a sticky back version and you could paint it to match. This is one example, but they make other sizes, styles, and colors.

Setting up a single SSID to cover a large old house [R]

I want to setup a single wireless SSID to cover the whole of my parent's house. I'm looking to get 3 ubiquiti APs plugged into a BT router/modem with the wireless disabled.

I would have to use powerline adapters to connect them.

Would this work?

Would I need multiple power line adapters?

What are some of the better powerline adapters?

They currently are using Devolo powerline adapters and a Devolo access point. But it is getting a bit old.

I was just talking about for example some raceway like this to hide the exposed areas.

LED Strip Battery? [R]

I have a built in that I'd love to put the LED Hue strip under. The only issue is that there is no power anywhere near this.

Because I rent I wouldn't have any way of running power, nor would I want to.

Has anyone seen any "battery packs" that I could use and hide up and under a shelf at all?

Thanks!

No problem. I see a lot of people using pvc because it's cheaper but there's a lot more elegant solutions out there using conduit. https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Concealer-Wall-Cover-Raceway/dp/B01JKO8724/ref=sr18?ie=UTF8&qid=1494283011&sr=8-8&keywords=wire+conduit
