One of Turnstone Custom Home's owners discusses his experience using Sonos audio system in his personal residence. After installing the Sonos system this user believes that hard-wired music distribution systems have now been rendered obsolete. When you are planning your new home don't spend money on pre-wiring until you have investigated the Sonos system.
What we learned is that there are two major types of systems. The first type uses leak detectors placed strategically throughout the house. When one of these detectors senses water it will shut off the water main minimizing the amount of damage. The second type of system senses unusual duration and/or volume of water flow and also shuts off the water main when a leak is suspected. We spent a fair amount of time assessing the pros and cons of each system and decided on a flow-based system manufactured by FloLogic, Inc.
