Solution Specification:

Four types of outlets for audio video data telephone (whole house described seperately)

VDT : Video, Data, Telephone, powered by 1 cat5e, 2 RG6 3GHz and 1 Cat6 cable
DT : Data + telephone powered by 1 cat5e cable and 1 Cat6 Cable
HT : Home theater 5 pairs of binding post modules for audio input. Located behind entertainment/TV unit. (Other end terminates directly on to the speakers.
VC : video camera, run one RG6 and 1 cat5e to each of the interior/exterior camera location. Three technologies available, CCTV($), IP camera($$), IP camera with Power over ethernet($$$) wire for both.
CCTV uses 1 RG6 for video and cat5e for 12V DC
IP camera uses cat5e for signal and control and have a 110 V AC close by for power.
IP camera with power over ethernet handles signal/control and power all from one cat5e but is very expensive now.
When pre-wiring for video camera leave ample extra length on camera end and cover gang box with wallplate.

Home Orientation

For ease of communication I have considered top of page to be North, Bottom is South, Right edge of page is East and Left edge of page is West.

Great room

2 VDT on west wall to the north or south of fireplace for a large screen/Plasma ScreenDue to the central location of the fireplace it is hard for me to figure the exact location. Please pick two spots for VDT per your floor plan and home decoration. Also some prefer a plasma screen on top of the fireplace, if this is what you prefer then please move the outlet accordingly.
1 DT on north wall to the east of the french doors.
1 HT wiring in the great room. wires start at one of the two VDT locations of your choice and terminate on wall or ceiling depending on your speaker type(front floor standing/satellite, rear wall mounted(flush/surface) or ceiling mounted(surface only)

Whole House Audio

A 8-zone A-bus whole house audio system with built in IR repeater system. Building blocks are:
8 zone distribution module installed at the wall where the main entertainment unit will reside (great room?)
4 x 24 V power supply 8 x amplified keypads 8 pairs of ceiling/wall speakers

Wiring is 1 cat5e from distribution module to each amplified keypad. Speaker wire 14/2 from keypad to the ceiling/wall speakers. Great room is already covered with the entertainment unit, you could go with 4 zones : dining, covered patio study and master bedroom Looks like we have 3 downstairs zones (covered patio, office and guest suite) and 5 upstairs zones (sun deck(outdoor wall mount speakers, loft, bedroom #3, bedroom#4, master bedroom) (we dont sell Russound items and cannot quote you on it. cable estimates however are included.)

IP camera/CCTV camera

R122un one cat5e and one rg6 cable to each potential camera location. (eg porch, and sun deck for outdoors and the 2 upstairs bedrooms) For indoors use IP camera and install camera diagonally opposite from door at ceiling height to cover entire room, also provide 110V AC to power IP camera For outdoors use weatherproof bullet camera and CCTV technology. (I have calculated cable and data connections you need in the structured wiring panel, we only sell IP cameras and dont have CCTV cameras) Te

Total outlets(wallplates) of each type

D=1 (fridge)
T=3 (1 kitchen, 1 garage, 1 workshop) VC(CCTV)=2 outdoor VC(IP)=3 ( 2 indoor(kids bedroom) + 1 Great room

Total outlets by service type

Video 12
Data 12 + 12 + 1 +3(for Ip cameras) = 28
Telephone 12 + 12 +3 = 27
Surround sound 5.1/Home Theater 2
