Summary

In this chapter we learned how to plan our alarm system, from the first walkabout to the final installation.

We also learned how to run and modify the software to suit our needs.

We learned how to add more zone inputs and more outputs to the software.

In the next two chapters we will build and test the hardware, which we will be installing in our dream home.

When it comes to installation, there is an excellent website that will help you considerably. This site tells you how to install many different types of low voltage household wiring. You can find it at http://www.structuredhomewiring.com/AlarmWiring.aspx.
