This article is fact. Cost the installation company in the realm of 9 digits if rumors are correct in the industry.
Wow! Tragic, but a very interesting read. It makes me miss my 100 pound German Shepherd. He was a low-tech, but very effective, notification system.
Some of the mistakes in the article seemed like pretty basic stuff (like how the PIRs were wired and the glass break location). I'm sure they had reasons for installing the way they did. I'd like to know why they made some of those decisions.
Having worked as a commercial LV wiring contractor in the past, I'm not sure I'd want to go back to doing that. My back and knees would probably complain a lot these days. Programming the systems and troubleshooting might be fun, but pulling lots of wire is for younger folks.
