We appreciate your comments Sponge, but different thoughts are appreciated. As an installer, we come across different situations. The purpose of the forum is to exchange information in the interest of doing a proper or better installation. In our field, many licensed electricians, including us, regularly install alarm systems, along with fire alarms, central vacs, cable tv, telephone, and data cables. True, it may not all be rocket science, but tips are always appreciated. Cheers!
