If you’ve had a variety of services wire your home for alarms, internet, smart home features, and other types of wiring other than standard 120V circuits, you’ve probably experienced a wide range of methods and wiring standards. You may even have wiring in your home that doesn’t meet the requirements that electricians are trained to follow, posing potential hazards and functional issues over time. At Mister Sparky of Wilmington, NC, our electricians can provide you with the expert wiring you need, meeting the correct standards and aesthetically done, and involving a minimum of cutting and drilling to hide it from sight. We can also provide many different types of termination, so you can have a multi-purpose audiovisual outlet plate installed for your home theater that includes connections for HDMI, Ethernet, Speaker Audio, Fiber Optic Connections, and more. We’ll use top-quality wire with the right safety rating and durability rating for the location where it’s installed, even for runs to your outdoor speakers on your patio, or audiovisual equipment for theater under the stars. We can work from wiring diagrams and other documents so you’ll have a record of what’s in your walls for future reference, and our standards-based work is easy to update when needed.
Wiring for Networks and Communication
Wires for your internet service and other communication devices including phones may run a long distance, such as network connections to WiFi access points. The runs need to be as short and direct as possible and avoid power lines to preserve signal quality and need to be protected from damage as well as rated for the space in which they are run, such as a wall or ceiling space. Our electricians know how to carefully and efficiently run these wires throughout your home and keep them out of sight, bringing them to termination points where you can connect and enjoy your services. Our electricians also perform pre-wiring for homes, addition, and remodeling while under construction, so you’ll have the capacity you need now, and into the future, already present in your walls and ready for use.
Homeowners are turning to centralized AV racks, often located in a specialized closet adjacent to a home theater space, as a source for entertainment throughout the house. They may feed bedrooms, a kitchen, even an outdoor projection theater for summer use. Our electricians can run these sensitive wires, which need to be carefully installed and connected for the best sound and video picture, and provide the protection they need from weather and damage.
Low-Voltage Wiring: Alarms, CCTV, and Sensors
Wiring of alarms, video surveillance, and motion sensors can be hit or miss, as sometimes installers have minimal training and are under time pressure. The results can be of concern to homeowners, and the solution is to have our electricians run the low-voltage wiring that these services require so the end result is attractive, effective, and safe. Our knowledge of local home construction helps us select the best routes for these wires, avoiding excessive modifications to your walls and ceilings in the process. If you are installing your own equipment, having us do the wiring can be especially helpful, saving you a lot of time and effort.
High-Quality Outdoor Wiring
Many homes have outdoor wiring that doesn’t meet current professional standards. Our electricians can install or correct the installation of outdoor wiring on the outside of your home, crossing your yard underground, extended to your garage, and otherwise exposed to the elements and providing for the use of electrical equipment outdoors. In particular, we can provide GFCI-protected outlets and weatherproof enclosures, and make sure that wiring runs, especially underground, are protected from accidental damage by using the proper conduits or other protection. For outdoor lighting, video surveillance, and sound systems, we can run specialized wiring that meets each feature’s needs, and help you design your outdoors as a great place to spend time during the summer, even including an outdoor space ready as a summer office with power, lighting, and communications.
Separate Power for Workshops and Garages
Stringing a wire to your workshop or garage is not the best solution for bringing power to your spaces outside the main house. In fact, our experts have several ways that we can provide expandable electrical panels as a sub-panel to your main circuit breaker panel. That way, you can have proper, reliable, and safe wiring to your outbuilding, along with the ability to provide multiple circuits with nearby circuit breakers for a semi-professional effect. You’d be surprised by the difference it makes when you don’t have to worry about whether your air compressor is going to start up while you’re using your table saw, requiring you to run inside and reset the breaker. We understand, and we have great solutions that will let you focus on your work and your hobbies.
240 Volt Wiring for Appliances and Heavy-Duty Machine Tools and Welders

If you have 240V machine tools, welding equipment, and other gear, we can wire for them also.
