maintain or slightly raised their
rates in 2023; based on last year's
results, owners had anticipated
boosting labor rates by 3.8% heading
into 2023. Recalling last year's
fi gures, integrators were charging
$106.67 nationally for average
hourly labor rate for installation
and $114.28 for service.

The median profi t
margin from labor
was a healthy 35.7%
last year, and more
than a quarter of
respondents reported
labor profi tability of
greater than 51%.
Almost every
integrator earns
some profi ts on labor,
and only 7% say they
expected to lose
money or break even.
That's a good sign that
companies continued
to maintain or slightly
raised their rates in
2023.
However, integrators
last year said they
anticipated boosting
labor rates by nearly
4% heading into 2023.
Meanwhile, when it comes to
using independent or part-time
contractors, half of integrators (51%)
enlisted third-party personnel for at
least some work based on project
needs. Of that, the percentage used
for installations notched up slightly,
while more programming was done
in-house last year - the latter
perhaps refl ecting the increasingly
dealer-friendly features and design
attributes of today's home automation
systems. CE Pro
