I'm moving into a new house in two months and even though it is a resale, I figure that now is the best time to pre-wire the home for a future home automation system.. most likely C4 or entry level Crestron.
Are there any standard guides that I can follow that will give me an idea of what to pre-wire?
My brother-in-law is a electrician and he got his hands on a large spool of industrial grade Cat6 cable, will this work for my application or should I buy Cat5e instead?
Of what I've read, Cat6 will sooner or later superseed Cat5e as the standard, so maybe Cat6 is a better idea.
The plan is to install the home automation system in about a year or two.
Thanks for your expert help.
