Solution Specification:

Five types of outlets

VDT : Video, Data, Telephone, powered by composite cable
DT : Data + telephone powered by a pair of cat5e cables
HT : 7.1 Home theater 8 pairs of binding post modules for audio distribution to 2 front,2 rear and 1 subwoofer and center channel. (Located behind entertainment/TV unit. (Other end terminates directly on to the speakers.
T : Telephone only outlet powered by a single Cat5e cable.
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.

Kitchen and Breakfast Nook

1 VDT on one a wall of your choice

Master Bedroom

1 VDT on wall across from bed
2 DT one on each side of bed
1 HT - You did'nt specify, but looking at your MB's expansive layout, would recommend it. (we can remove if you dont like it), You can also extend this home theater with an A-B switch and have two Auxillary ceiling speakers in the bathroom to playback TV sound or listen to News/Traffic in the morning.

Other three downstairs bedrooms

3 x 1 VDT
3 x 1 DT in on one side of the bed in each of the 3 rooms

Large Upstairs Room

To allow two possible configurations of the Home Theater. Consider installing 1 VDT at ceiling height if you have pool table.
1 HT 7.1, you may want to think about where the TV will be and orient the 7.1 accordingly.

IP camera/CCTV camera

Run one cat5e and one rg6 cable to each potential camera location. (eg porch, Entry/Great Room Ceiling) For indoors and remote command and control use IP camera and install camera diagonally opposite from door at ceiling height to cover entire room or center of ceiling in Great Room, also provide 110V AC to power. For outdoors would recommend CCTV bullet camera.
