Each room is also supplied with two CT100 co-axial cables, allowing the sharing of both satellite feeds and terrestrial digital TV. There is also five co-axial feeds to the attic to supply an antenna and satellite dish.
Alarm cable was also run to every window, outside door, control panel location etc.
