My home was pre-wired for a security system when it was built 4 years ago. Only 4 of the 5 external doors and none of the windows had the wire stubbed out where you could get to it. The 4 doors had the upper jamb pre-drilled and a plug with the wire tied to it was inserted. Piece of cake to pull the plug out, put a contact on the wire and connect it to my panel. (HAI OMNI II)
I've got a wire finder that I've used to find buried wires in the yard for my exernal wiring so I havet a pretty good idea of where the wiring in the walls is, but short of a borescope and a long wire hook, how would security guys fish these things out in a situation like this??
I am capable of cutting/repairing/repainting the drywall, but I really don't want to get into that if possible.
The contractor who pre-wired the house said they'd be happy to come out and fish the wires out for me, but I'm a DIY'er and would prefer to spend my time doing it instead of writing a check.
