Today we had an appointment with the wiring rep and we selected a few options which we deemed as must haves.

  • 4 standard outlets and we added 12 additional outlets (7 cable, 4 phone and 5 data) 6 in the second floor, 5 in the first floor and 5 in the basement
  • Upgraded the networking panel with a power outlet inside for a router and modem
  • Prewired basic security system (1 Control Panel, 1 Interior siren, LCD keypad, 2 motion detectors, 3 glass break detectors
  • Build in Central Vac System
  • Two media system pre-wiring
  • 3 Flat Panel Mounting
  • 2 Central closet receivers pre-wiring  
Haven't done this before, So need to find out which of the above options that can be done personally to save some money. Need suggestions.?
