New Home Construction

Hi all,

I've gotten a job on a new house doing all the structured wiring, alarm wiring, and security cameras & intercom for the gate.

I'm having trouble finding a Gate intercom. I found one system that doesn't require a phone line (is LAN/Wi-Fi based). However that system is made by BFT Automation and I can't find a local distributor here in Ottawa, ON.

Does anyone know of a good Intercom system for the gate (preferably with a camera on it) that can open a gate as well?

I'll be running wires and I don't know what I need besides power and a Cat5E. I still don't know what he'll be getting for a gate opener... I might have to supply it.

Also, I'm wondering what you have used for Wireless Access Points. I have 3 to install in this home, and I haven't used any before.

Run 2 1" pvc conduits and one 3/4" pvc from the main house out to the gate. The 3/4" is for lighting, One of the 1" ones is for gate power, and the other 1" is for your communications lines. Blow strings thru them. Run another 3/4" from one side of the gate to the other side of the driveway in case they end up asking for lights on both sides of the gate, (many times they do).

I'd love to have run those line however I'm stuck with 4" DB2. one run to the hydro pole, one to the gate, And one to the outbuilding near the gate. I got a funny feeling we'll be digging up the driveway again anyway.

It's also a 200 foot run that's not exactly straight. I'm showing up after the fact and now I get to try and work around everything.

Never did one 1 1/4" and one 1" with a 1" across the gate opening?
