Running CAT6 Cables for Home Automation Setup

by oliver9523 » Wed Dec 11, 2019 11:20 am

Hi all,
I'm slowly building my home automation setup. I've recently added a Ubiquiti access point to improve wifi coverage and performance - super happy with it - I have it currently wired with PoE CAT6 that runs a short distance, it's hidden using using stick-on conduit along the corner of the rooms. It's ok but I'm not overly keen on the look of it all, I want to run it behind the walls/ceiling.

I've had a look with an inspection camera in the ceiling and there's plenty of space... but in the hall way there are several wooden (OSB) bulkheads that I need to get round / through.
I've done a rough diagram and attached some pictures from the inspection camera (hope it's clear enough)


It's a new build (~10 years old), 3 floor townhouse, diagram is the middle floor.

My question is how do I go through these bulkheads? The only way I can think is to cut a hole in the hall ceiling by each bulkhead and use a long drill...
