Hello guys I am after a bit of advice.
I am completely new to home automation, I have a house that requires complete renovation so I have decided if i want to get some cables in, now is the ideal opportunity.
I have looked around the site but the amount of abbreviations makes it hard to understand.
I'm not asking to be spoon fed any information, i'm just after some advice on how to get started- any books guides or literature that is around.

I'm an industrial electrician by trade with experience of installing plc's and relay control etc so hopefully it won't take me long to pick things up.
Any information or advice on how you got started would be ideal.
