I recently got my whole house rewired but I forgot to show them the wiring required for connecting the TV and Home theatre. Can I do it by myself or should I call them to do it?

I can do it by myself. I have no idea what they can do nor what you can, too.

Can you better describe exactly what you want in the locations?
Like cable feed, audio and video distribution, network interface jacks, etc.
You want to also do security console wiring?

Im not sure of what you mean by security console wiring and the rest of the stuff. But I do know that wires connecting the home theatre and the TV has to be clubed together so that it looks neat on the wall and is not here and there. Can you guide me? or since I don't have much knowledge on electrical wiring is it best to call in professionals? What's your opinion?

Electricians are most familiar with electrical wiring. Home theater wiring is a different specialty.

Telephone wiring is different also, but some providers of home entertainment (e.g., cable, satellite, etc.) require a phone connection.

What specifically do want installed?
