The Guardian Appointment

My husband met with Guardian last week.  I did not go, but we both looked at the electronic brochure that they sent and talked about what we might get.  We kept it pretty simple. We bought the Smart Connections package that gives you a multi-media outlet, 5 additional outlets for cable, phone or data,  "centralized" Wi-Fi, and a "Smartbox" in the basement.  With Ryan Homes only providing 2 phone and 2 cable outlets standard you are almost forced to buy this Smart Connections package - although you can buy individual additional cable and phone jacks from Guardian for about $95/ jack (that's the cost in our area).

We also bought the wall t.v. pre-wire package so we can put a television over the fireplace in the family room.  Finally my husband also got a two room audio package for the family room and the basement.  I'm not sold on this, because while I love to listen to music I know we don't all like the same music at the same time, so I'm not sure how much we will use it.  Plus with the availability of bluetooth and a Beats Pill I'm not sure hardwiring this type of stuff into the house is necessary.  And given the way technology changes it sort of feels like anything we choose may be obsolete by the time the house is built and we move in.  Lol!
