I just finished building a big new house and did all the low voltage myself (with my son's help). I used mud rings for all drops & keypads and left wires (CAT-5E, firewire, security wire, and even speaker wire) securely hanging to a stud, close to the position that I wanted to mount the corresponding sensor. When the sheetrock crew came to do their thing they would poke holes where needed. Once in a while they would bury a wire of mine but they would do that to my electrician also. After they were finished, I tweeked the final position as was needed. The spacklers would clean up any extra holes that I'd make.brotsten said:What do you do with the wire? Do you just tack it to the stud and fish it out throught a hole in the drywall?
