We are having a new home built. My question is how to turn on the projector from a remote location. Is it through a z-wave outlet or is it through the network port on the back of some of the PJ's? Thank you.

Absolutely NOT through an outlet / wall switch. You don't want the projector's power shut off accidentally or before its cool-down cycle has been completed. Many projectors have RS232 or Ethernet interfaces for operating it from a control system. Even an RF remote can be used with an IR emitter attached (or using an IR input) to the unit.

So basically make sure I have a PJ with the RS232 to turn on/off from let's say my phone.
Just to confirm all PJ when turned off from the remote will allow it to cool down before it turns off right?
