Finalized all our selections with Guardian today. We decided on the following:
Security System - had to add a couple of additional motion detectors to get full coverage and added the monitored smoke and heat detectors as well.
Whole house audio - decided to rock the house out...well not quite, but almost. Have audio speaker pairs in the sunroom, solarium, Master bedroom, and outdoor speakers.
Surround sound speakers for the family room and basement. We are putting all our audio/video equipment in the hall closet (got this idea from another blog) and running everything from there, so we also got a full wiring package to connect the TV over the fireplace to the closet equipment. This also includes an internet connection to the TV as well.
And finally, in addition to the 2 phone and 2 cable connections that come with the house we added 9 cable and 3 data cables. We have a cable connection in just about all rooms and we added the 3 data cables to be able to connect TVs/Blueray players directly to the internet for speed. Most of the time we will use wireless for our computers, but it's nice to have a direct connection when trying to steam video.
Thats a lot of "stuff", but we did not get the full audio package (way to big a mark up on the equipment) and the intercom was way overpriced and we did not get the central vacuum system either...would rather spend that money on a jacuzzi later.
