Installed a few Smartlines with weather monitors today. I took pictures to document, but I'm too lazy to resize. However, I wrote these R&R steps a few weeks back and though I would share them with you guys. Let me know what you think. These are the steps for a full-scale commercial R&R.

Looks like 14 g. is fun to wire, I wired a SL today & even 18 g a pain.:dizzy:

All I see there is an invoice for $880.00. What R & R steps?

Crap, sorry guys, I attached the wrong smartline. Can a moderator please take that down?

I'll attach the correct deal.

embarrasing.

I actually prefer 14g because it is stiffer and easier to stuff in there. I didn't have to cut or resize any of the zone wires. One thing I HATE about the SL, is that the common and MV are way up top to the left. 99% of the time I have to extend those as you see in the picture above.

Huh huh, I bet the moderators are going to let you swing in the wind!
Actually, that's a check list that ALL installers should follow..good going.:)

No big, your wiring looked just as crappy as mine did w/ 18g given the small
area provided. Hank installed a 36 SL which had TONS of room for wires;
next SL I install will be that enclosure.

whats the price on the 48 zone? I was at WM factory today and back in their testing area they had a giant SL box, is that the 48 zone?
Also,

I wouldnt really care about the mis-post, but it has customer information on pricing. and since some of us are in the same area, thats not good.

ALso, I'm cheap on the installs. LMI (denver, dallas, jacksonville) get's $100 per zone for SL install. Big-time!!

Nice way to price em. Surely you don't install a 4 zone for 320.00? i generally do the WM SL as part of an overhaul package so I tend to be in the 650-750 range but we add labor on top. My attitude is that a great clock doesn't help a lousy system. Hold the clock back as a teaser to get them to fix all the other stuff. Once they get the system in order then tell them they are now worthy of a better timer.
