Is this something that an experienced installer can do from off site? I'm trying to get our house built, but got hung up on automation. I want Lighting, security, and a bit of audio. I also would like HVAC, but the Tekmar stats that I have set up do not currently interface.
The problem that I am having is that the Vantage dealer isn't getting it done for me beyond the lighting side. My electrician is solid, but could never program, but if it were possible/practical to have someone program from afar, it would be handy. We are in a location that does not have a lot of installers as our project is well above the avarage home in our area.
At present I have:
Approx 40 lighting and fan loads pulled to the location that we plan to mount the panels. This area is in a knee wall technically considered attic, but easily accessible, and conditioned space.
Approx 10ea 15 amp feeds run from breaker panel to where we plan to mount the panels
Carlon boxes mounted in light switch locations with an additional vacant "smurf" tube running to attic or basement in case there is a future need to pull wires
Remote slab and air temp sensors with wires run to thermostats remotely mounted near the location planned for the Vantage panels. The main house stat is located on the wall and this sensor wire set loops up to location of the other stats. This way if things change we should be ready to switch things up.
I have two 2" conduits run from basement to attic and plan to add a third. These are there to facilitate future needs
