Author: Ari Erenthal, Published on Dec 06, 2016

Boring holes is a basic part of running cables for most security system projects. To do so, you will need to choose the right drills for various scenarios.

This guide will help you understand the different types of drills available and the tradeoffs of each. No one drill will handle every sort of situation, but by understanding the capabilities of different drill types will allow you to choose the ones that suit your needs best. We explain:

  • Driver vs Hammer vs Rotary Drills
  • Corded vs Cordless
  • Drills for mounting jacks
  • Drills for wood doors or base plates
  • Drills for working in concrete buildings
  • Extension cords for corded drills
  • Batteries (12V and 18V)
  • Pricing of drills
  • Renting vs purchasing drills
  • Chucks - keyless vs keyed vs SDS
