7 Super-Frightening Wiring Setups

Here are some of the most scariest wiring jobs that are sure to make your electronic security company feel better about your wiring techniques!

All security systems integrators know that cabling is the backbone of all systems, and if you’ve ever been in the trenches of a “takeover job” you know how incredibly terrifying it can be to view a horrible wiring scenario.

You know the type. Your integration firm is brought in to fix a faulty installation or finish the work another firm wasn’t able to effectively complete. Imagine arriving to a job site, opening up a ceiling and finding cable after cable strewn haphazardly. Then, your firm is left to clean up the horrifying mess. Yikes!
