New house build, pre-wire done but need help with final
Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I've read through the forums and found some answers but nothing that it either up to date or applicable to my scenario. Long story short, build a house, pre-wired for multi zone a/v but what should I use to finish it off. It was pre-wired by a control 4 dealer who typically wires as if thats what your getting, but I think it may be overkill??
Here is the scenario:
Audio: 4 or 5 Zones
Zone 1 - Home Theatre, only setup for 5.1
Zone 2 - Outdoor deck, 2 speakers
Zone 3 - Indoor kitchen / dining room, 2 speakers
Zone 4 - Master Bathroom
Zone 5 - could be mixed with another zone, speaker in covered porch off master bedroom. Could be mixed with bathroom, or deck speakers but its own zone would be preferred.
Video - Wired for Cat5 to 4 bedrooms, and 3 other tv's throughout the house. The only one I think I would want to run specifically through the system would be the main home theater connected to the 5.1 audio, and possibly the main living room TV. But for the rest, I am okay with using a regular remote and the audio from those TV's as they are just in bedrooms.
I have a few other smart home products for my alarm system (abode), HVAC (ecobee), schlage maindoor deadbolt. I am fine running those through IFTTT.
Any ideas? Is Control 4 the solution for my multi zone setup or is their something at a lower cost since I would not be using control 4 to its fullest, such as harmony hub or a fancy avr?
