What it Costs

Services

We provide comprehensive design and installation services, from small, one-day jobs, to multi-year projects on the largest residences.  We work on a time and materials basis, typically with a cap on overages.  Our standard rate is $140 hour;  there's a complete summary of our service options here.

 

Products

We are factory-authorized dealers for virtually every major consumer electronic and home technology brand.  This means the manufacturers' warranties are valid - which isn't always the case when you buy online.  Our prices are the same or lower than any other factory-authorized dealer.  

 

Typical Project Costs

There are obviously many variables that impact this.  We can supply and install a beautiful big new flat screen TV with surround sound and custom control for as a little as a few thousand dollars. 

 

At the other end of the spectrum, if you are building a new home, and would like a solid infrastructure (phones, Internet, WiFi, etc.), perhaps one or two rooms with a flat screen TV and surround sound, and music throughout, you should plan on a budget starting at $15,000. 

 

Our smallest project:  adding a custom control to a client's exisiting system.  The total cost (service and product) was $500.

 

Our largest project:  a multi-year project for a 70 acre residential compound.  The total cost (services and products) was well in excess of $100,000.  We also recently were retained to provide complete design and engineering services for a 27 unit luxury condo in San Francisco's Nob Hill neighborhood.
