Relative novice to home automation here so apologies in advance for some newbie type questions. I've recently purchased a warehouse conversion property with settlement in a few weeks. I will be looking to do a fitout upon settlement and am wanting to incorporate a home automation setup as a part of it.
Have been madly reading about different platforms etc from the more professional control 4 type platforms to Google, Alexa, home assistant etc. My primary concern at present is determining where I need to lay network cable in the fitout as am wanting to utilise calling where possible to gpo's, lights, Windows (motorised window control options), security etc.
For example I'm unsure whether I would need to have cabling to lights themselves or light switches or both in terms of infrastructure required for future proofing cabling infrastructure for light automation for whichever platform I end up going with in the end.
Any advice or web resources to research further would be greatly appreciated.
