I was talking to a guy who was installing Nest cameras, smoke sensors and thermostats last week- he charges $150 to install each piece, although I think the doorbell is a bit less- how is he not making money on it? The cameras look good, the video is easy to zoom whether live or recorded, they connect to the network easily and they can make $2K in a day. I don't see a problem with that.

Sure. If that's your business model. Awesome. Personally the lack of ability to predict wifi coverage or dangling cables doesn't work for me. To make money on these jobs you have to sell it sight unseen. $150 for a quick install is cool as long as you don't have to do a site visit first or return something because the client didn't understand something completely. Again, if that's their market and they laid that all out, then great. Get money. I'm in this because I enjoy delivering elite systems, focusing on details, and happy life time customers. Not $150
