Installing an alarm

Hi,
I presume like the others, my apartment in Clon Brugh came cabled for an alarm.
However, when I got a guy in to install an alarm, he was unable to find where all the cables came back to.
Anyone know anything about this?
Thanks,
Conor

Conor,

I has a bit of trouble with this recently. You've probably sorted it at this satge but the wiring meets in the hall closet of your apartment. It'll be behind a small junction box cover (mine had fallen between the walls and was a distaster to reach).

If your still struggluing let me know,

Hi Michael,
Haven't got it sorted, although I haven't done anything on it for a while.
There is only 1 panel in the wall of the hall closet.
There are 6 cables behind this panel, and they go to various points around the apartment, and aren't related to the alarm.
I'll open up this panel again and see if I can see anything that might have slipped down.
However, the alarm installer from Crothers had some sort of signal generator that he attached to one of the alarm cables in the apartment, and he couldn't find any trace in the closet.
Thanks,
Conor

I've got my hands on a cable tracer.
I have managed to find two of the alarm cables behind the wall in the closet.
However, there should be 8 cables.
I can't see any alternative to knocking a hole in the wall in the closet to get access to those cables.
I'm not particularly happy do this, mainly because I haven't done it before, and it seems that most of the cables aren't there anyway.
