Inserting Cables: While dropping the cables, you may face two conditions:

Through Interior Wall: A wall that don’t have the outdoors on the other side, probably don’t have insulation inside. In such case, your work simplifies.

Through Exterior Wall: If you are trying it on a wall with great outdoors outside, will require pushing through insulation.
