    Can anyone please suggest sources (websites, forum postings, books,
    etc.) that have information, tips and tricks on running alarm wires in
    an existing home? I have searched around the web but found nothing.
    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    It's called OTJ training...become an apprentice to a master and you will
    learn grasshopper.
    There's very little in print.

    he can go to houses under construction and study them. before and after
    sheetrock goes up. you can figure it out pretty easy.

    op: "...in existing home" - meaning a retro-fit.

    & they certainly don't build homes like they used to, although the op didn't
    state how old the house is...I can guarantee that looking at how a new house
    is constructed will give little insight into how you could run wires in a
    1920's plaster & lathe brick townhouse...etc.

    the wires go in the walls, unfinished basements and crawls and attics
    and closets or cabinets. dont forget chases. what with electric drills
    it don't matter whats on the wall. if its a townhouse use wireless.
    its not rocket science, or maybe it is for some. ;)
