The installation went smoothly with the documentation I had
The installation went smoothly with the documentation I had. The only issue was that I had only four cables and this new unit required an extra wire. Luckily, I found this wire behind the drywall when I was about to run it. It can also run on AA batteries, but I figured a hard-wired installation would be better.
