Low Voltage Systems Book


Senior Member
I received a copy of the National Training Center's Low Voltage Systems Design and Installation Book. It pretty much covers the basic how-to's on home automation, security, etc. There are 500 pages, so I have not read it all yet, but thumbing through it I see alot of great ideas. This book would be great for the individual that would like more education before wiring his home.
