I prewired this Home 4 years ago for security, which will have over 160 hardwired zones, 42 Ip cameras inside and out, 18 rooms of audio/video, 16 WAP's. also lutron lighting control system, dedicated home theater. another 2 months and this should be wrapped up. I'll be spending about a week or two repairing wire that the drywallers, carpenters, and everyone else that cut my fucking cables! But this was expected because of how long this job has lasted. Homeowner has dumped almost 6 million into this joint!

I am not even close to done. this was done td
ladder racking between the 2 cabinets + attached to the wall? I'm a big advocate of 3 point earth quake proofing network 2 & 4 post racking. Plus, might hide some of those free air'd power cables :)
Wiring trays will be installed after all equipment is installed in the rack. the racks are almost empty at this point. only have a switch for the wap;s powered up and a Few power conditioners. Next week I will be installing 16 D’Agostino Classic Stereo amps for the rooms in the house, control 4 system to control everything. I want to get the alarm fired up before the amps are installed. these things are expensive so gotta protect them well! after install is complete all wire will be neatly organized, re- labled and secured. The homeowner may have walls built around it. not sure at this point. HVAC guys have a vent going in above the racks to keep everything cool.The racks are bolted to the floor with 1/2 lags and will not be moving anytime soon.

we take care of celebrity/musician multi-million dollar homes for phone systems, audio/video, and network related (the joy of living near Lake Tahoe). You are lucky this homeowner cares about racking & HVAC. Usually, they only care about how it looks in their family room or guest rooms but leave a single hanging 40watt light bulb with no HVAC in the IT room with that one other vendor who messes up all the wiring.

same here, I have a lot of high end clients in my area. The owner knows his shit!. It is so nice to work with a client that knows exactly what he wants. The theater we are installing is off the charts! I will post pics of that next week. not much installed yet but ill post more as I get deeper into it

These 2 racks will house amps. Sonos equip. Router. Modem NVR. A few Poe switches. Pre amps. The dedicated home theatre will have its own rack.

I will be posting more pics as soon as more equipment is installed. Some of the contractors are still working in the house and I do not want to take a chance on anything walking away. The homeowner has invested 800k into the equipment so far. Which is not including the equipment for the theater
