    Wired home automation system question

    I'm in the process of building a house and want to have it all prepared for a home automation system - lights, controls, audio, tv, security, cameras.

    I don't want to spend a fortune on a third-party to come in and wire the house, so wondering if there's a simple/quick DIY package or some guidance that someone can provide. Just want to get the 'pipes' in place; initially will install cameras, then have a third-party security company take care of the windows and doors.

    Thanks in advance!
