First step is to call an integrator for an estimate.
Since you are in new construction, you have good timing to get all of the anticipated wiring in place and hidden before drywall goes up.
You would need to know what your current and future needs are, including Control4 system to get the wiring designed and installed correctly. The integrator can provide that knowledge.
I politely disagree.
When I car shop, I don't go into the dealership blindly, though some people prefer to do that.
I suggest you spend a few days reading as much as you can online, before contacting an installer. He's a pro, who knows the details, but he's also (usually) a salesman. I'm always leery of salesmen.
There is a lot of good information online, but also, admittedly, a lot of misinformation. Unfortunately, not many good published resources that would make it easier.
Control4 is a good, relatively affordable system. HAI is another, particularly if you want to integrate an alarm system with your setup. Try searching those terms (but don't limit yourself to systems from those manufacturers).
Keep us posted!
