There is no price list, you need to ask the kitchen company for a price on specific items.

Is it possible to have work done on the house before the keys are handed over, for example flooring and blinds etc?

The sale is not considered complete until they release the keys. You can have it measured though.

Curious to know this also as the plans dont seem to give them - only specified for the rooms.

Anyone got any recommendations for home insurance providers?
I vaguely remember it being mentioned before that some providers wont insure due to the proximity to the canal.

Yes that is the case, I can't recall which one it was now but in the end we went with Zurich who gave us a good deal for both Home and Life insurance.

You may have problems getting a quote if your property isn't on their database. If your eircode is working then you should be ok.

Hi Guys, if anyone got a standard (non-phone) alarm can they PM on details of the installer and the price? I'm in a hazel but imagine the heron would close in terms of needed sensors etc.

Got a quote from a friend of a friend which I thought was on the high side so want to make sure it's in the ballpark.

Cheers

Big things to be careful about are:
- companies with "offers" where you don't actually own the equipment and are locked into their expensive service (Phonewatch do this)
- systems with recurring monthly app charges (HKC do this)
- wireless alarms, as all houses in RCP are wired
- systems that come in packs, i.e. you get X number of sensors by default
- systems where your monitoring price depends on the number of sensors

If you want one that you can monitor via app then it will need to be connected to a router so you will need your router set up in your utility.

We went with Siemens/Vanderbilt SPC 4320, which has free online/app access. I can recommend an installer by PM, he has done several here and we were very happy with him.

It's best to get a few quotes and make sure they either come and do a survey to advise you on your needs or else go with someone who has already done houses here.
Here is a post from ealier in the thread, might be of some use.
