3 Pro access points is half that. Installation, Setup, Configuration, maintinace contract.... How does it not get to 2k?
Yeah, I can see that. I guess I was just thinking about it as 2k in gear for an "entry level house/customer". You can get dual band Ubiquiti AP's for $140 each, then the router with built in POE for around $160, the cloud key is another $90 or so.
Obviously there is going to be labor associated, which can really add up.
I can see doing this in a larger house, where signal can be an issue due to architecture.
In the more standard sized townhome/house, I can't see doing this, unless I'm just creating more work for myself.
A router like this would cover a house like that easily, and is probably way overkill, with a fraction of the cost, and a fraction of the labor.[Link: amazon.com]
My point is, if your educating the customer, you're giving them both options. You can either pay for a more expensive network solution with full support, or you can use a standard router, and them pay me if you need help.
