Security wiring in new construction home
A complaint and a question --
I bought a new home which came "fully wired" for a security system. Great, except . . . I'm pretty ticked off at the aggressive security sales pitches I'm getting from several companies, who expect me to pay a monthly fee to them. The more they push me, the more I resist.
So, without the hook up to these companie' systems, I have exposed wiring stubs on all my windows and doors. Which my cats chew on, and look unsightly.
Are there any options for me to use this wiring WITHOUT incurring regular monthly fees? Can I use them to hook up a home intranet/security camera on the front door, for example?
Can I buy my own security hardware and have it installed by an electrician, for home monitoring with my own computer, without having to pay additional fees?
Just wondering what my options are.
