Re: That damn problem has to be around here somewhere
Ha! Yes we don’t want buildings being designed by that lot, not if we want them to stay standing.
I don’t think we have a wiring standard that’s appropriate. Ethernet / RJ45 is fiddly to wire up the connectors. A mains socket is too big and clunky, IoT devices don’t need 1kW of power. What’s needed is something that can be used for a decent data rate (good enough for video), needs two wires plus earth, supplies about 100W DC at 28V and has a small socket / plug that’s easy to wire up.
Scatter those round a house as standard and that’s then very useful for all sorts of applications.
