So I spoke with my electrical guy yesterday and we did a walk through of the house.

We have made a couple changes that are shown in the attached files. I'll also include a legend so you can follow along.

Let me know what you think!

(location of fixtures are just approximations...)

Monoprice is well known for their crazy good prices. I've been buying stuff from them for years, especially A/V wires and connectors.

As far as those particular lights, you can do better than 80 CRI. For example, these are 90 CRI:


Also pay attention to the size can they fit into. The ones you linked are for 4", my link is for 5" & 6".

Otherwise, I'm really happy with my recent changeover to that type of light.

Can you go into more detail on this?
Battery backup options depend on your budget (and your tolerance for fan noise).

Several consumer models in the +$200 range provides surge, battery backup, and Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) functionality. Some can also be configured to turn off "accessory" outlets when the primary load is turned off (e.g. so the subwoofer is only powered when the main amp is on).
