So yesterday we met with our Guardian Rep. He was very helpful in explaining the best areas to place the items we chose. Our meeting lasted about 2+ hours! I was actually surprised, as I thought this would be a quick meeting. Also, he did mention that the wiring is going to be installed TODAY!
Here are our final selections:
- Basic Home Wiring Package Included:
- 2 Cable
- 1 Telephone
- Six Pack Wall Plate Outlets: $495
- 4 Cable
- 2 Data
Home Security System: $250 36 Month Agreement $39.99/mo. (First 6 Months Free)
- Klipsch 5.1 Silver Audio System: $965
- 5 Ceiling Installed Speakers
- High Speed Digital Flat Panel Prewire: $440
We ended up placing one of our cable outlets in the garage for a future TV. Chad also selected the Silver Audio System (Surround Sound) which we did not consider previously. It is a great idea as the speakers are set in the ceiling which helps remain as wire/cordless as possible.
I keep going back in forth in my head about the Home Security System. I know there are many other options such as wireless available that offer a little more features at a lesser price and no cost to install. Most still do require the typical 36 month contract. But I guess the hardwire is nice because it is an actual unit behind the wall. Any thoughts?
We ended up nixing the Home Security System. We are going to go the wireless route after much debate. Wireless gives us more options, flexibility and additional features that would cost a ton to add on with Guardian. We have not chose a system yet, but we will be doing much research over the next month so we are ready to go at move in time.
