As per my house build thread I thought I'd ask on here first before looking at buying new.

If anyone has any of the following and are wanting to sell please let me know (Christchurch based)

9.2 receiver (4k Atmos)
2 X TV wall mounts (full motion preferred)
Speaker cable
Ceiling speakers
Outdoor speakers
Wall brackets for book shelf speakers ( wharfdale diamond 9.0 )
Indoor wall motion sensor lights
Projector screen & projector (would want 4k bit open to options as native out of price range)
Unify AP
Eufy security cameras
Maybe a big roll of cat6 lol

Hmm that's all I can think of for now, I'm sure there's lots more lol

Thanks

Recommendation: Get Security PIR sensors installed in every room. Wire the sensors to something like a Konnected Alarm Panel (the new POE+ Pro would be ideal) instead of a normal alarm panel. That way every "security" sensor becomes a movement sensor you can run rules on via a free open source platform like Home Assistant when the alarm isn't armed. Extreme accuracy and no batteries to replace.

Second this but can note you can do the same if you connect your "traditional" alarm to Home Assistant.

I have a pair of these I bought a couple of years back to use with my Diamond 9s, but never got around to using: https://www.paradigm.com/en/wall-mounts/mb-60

 

I'm in Chch and I think I paid $60 for them, would be happy if I could get $30 back for them.

How much speaker cable do you think you need?
I’ve got a bit left on rolls from when I did our place we built.
It’s in wall stuff so cables inside a black sheath.
Pretty sure I’ve got single speaker (2 wires) and dual speaker (4 wires) cable.
Might even have a few metres of coax cable for a subwoofer.

Thanks for the replies, sorry for the delay. Noted about pir thanks

@d.w I was just about to say yes please then someone threw me a curve ball and I might have to get ceiling speakers instead of bookshelves. I'll have a look into it a bit more, but if it doesn't happen I'll be keen on your mounts please.

@k8toledo I'm really not too sure as have no idea how the cable is run, hopefully 100m would do it.

@cyabro. Again I'm not 100% sure yet, but at a real rough guess Maybe 50m. Coax would be good in case I get a second subwoofer. I do have 10m (had sub behind couch), I'm wondering if I can split in half and free terminate etc?

I will speak with a sparky soon, he should be able to give a better idea.

I've got about 180m of Dynamix CAT6 , I could cut a length.  It's 23 AWG Solid Core, not the most flexible but good quality.

 

 

 

If you need any RCA, A/V or component leads I have a box full, around 28 most are brand new.  And a box of new RG-59 leads. And approx 30m of RG-6 cable (used).

 

I'm having a clean out lol

Thank you. Ive just remembered I might also want to wire for electronic blinds (possible future upgrade) so might need more. I'll speak with the sparky to find out.

I could be keen on a cable for a second sub I don't have yet.

Would you know how much etc?
Thanks
