Home automation/audio/security help
Building a new home and trying to make sure we want to get everything close to how we want it. We have gotten two quotes from different companies for home automation/security/audio, etc. One company uses Control4, the other uses a combination of Bitwise with Elk Security. I have a few things I'm trying to get figured out.
1) How many speakers do we need? We want to do whole house audio and one of the bids has 2 speakers in every room. The rooms aren't hugeÃ¯Â¿Â½average is probably 12 X 15. Do we really need 2 speakers in every room?
2) Anyone have an opinion about which home automation system is better between Control4 and Bitwise?
3) One has recommended running 3 Cat6 cables to each TV. Any reason why I need three per TV?
4) One has recommended a Luxul commercial grade wireless access point that costs $735. That seems a bit nuts for a 3500 square foot house.
I'm sure I will have more questions, but that's all for now. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
