    Diagrams are very helpful. Text waivers between being too technical and too simple. A bit heavy on the promotion of 'Stargate' system - some information is not very useful since it is proprietary.
    BILL -- decatur, TX   11/9/2008
    Hard to read and follow
    SUSAN MARIE -- miami, FL   1/5/2008
    Great manual.
    PAUL -- sammamish, WA   11/17/2007
    I needed some quick answers in order to complete structured wiring in my new home before the insulation and dry wall crews arrived. This book dove straight down into the specific details for installing some specific brands and technologies, and I was looking for something more general and more broadly applicable at the time.
    BRENT -- castlegar, BC   8/19/2007
    I am using the manual to learn about structured wiring. I have not yet used it for an installation. I was expecting more real life pictures as opposed to diagrams and drawings.
    JERRY -- warner robins, GA   8/10/2007
    Starting to become out of date.
    LOUIS -- basalt, CO   3/7/2007
    Good book. there are many spelling mistakes and mis-labeled diagrams..but on the whole it was informative
    KEN -- san mateo, CA   12/27/2006
    Well written with good illustrations. Worth the money for an introduction into home automation.
