Lets say I'm able to get everything I need for for a complete 6 zone audio/video whole house distribution system with hvac, security, and lighting; I need someone to just install it. Will I be able get an installer to program and set it up without buying the equipment from them? The equipment list was about double what I can get on my own, but will need someone to program it.

Hehe, the markup on the equipment covers part of the install. I wish it weren't the case, but these installers just don't get it. They really need to raise their installation prices, and drop the hardware markups, if they want their clients to feel comfortable about the hardware costs.


The more experienced, 'better' installation companies use exclusive, protected lines that can't be price shopped.

The crazy thing is the install charge is $9,000 for a total system set up for $28,000. I can get necessary equipment for a little over 5k. I can instal, but I'm screwed on programming.
