    Hi i have hard wired my house for smoke alarms including the attic space for the future, so how would you terminate/leave the wiring at this point, my plan was just to leave a loop hanging down but i had to cut the cable to get the cables in place, so i was thinking a jb screwed to the plasterboard ceiling ?
    Thanks
