DataComm has been in business since 1998, pioneering smart, innovative solutions for the structured wiring and low voltage industries, and we recognise that each customer’s needs are unique, requiring distinct and unique solutions. Keeping this in mind, we’ve spent the last 23 years creating and engineering our products to satisfy the needs of the individuals who use them.
Remote Device Mount or RDM
We are thrilled about our new product, which we have produced and introduced to the world. The original concept for this product was to address a significant source of frustration for installers when wiring for these types of gadgets. So, typically, installing a sensor in a wall is a tedious process that involves a high risk of losing the sensor wire within the wall cavity and damaging it at some point during the process, and we can guarantee that every integrator reading this article is familiar with the time spent fishing for wires.
The RDM, a winner in this year’s CE Pro BEST Products Awards that were recently announced at CEDIA Expo 2021, aims to reduce installers’ pain points around installing sensors.
The RDM solution from DataComm is installed by anchoring to 2x4s and connecting to a polycarbonate sensor plate with a red template pullout for fishing wire for various types and brands of sensors. Drywallers may cut around the plate, drywall it, mud it, and sand it when they reach the red template in the middle.
The installers return at this point and pull out this sensor using needle-nose pliers; the sensor wires will be hooked to this, and whichever sensor they’re putting may then go in and sit flush with the wall.
Installers may utilise the 1-inch diameter hole to put temperature sensors, glass-break sensors, and motion detectors, according to their needs.
“You’ll never lose your sensor wire, nor will you ever damage the wall trying to retrieve it,”
