SECURITY & SURVEILLANCE
system installed by a CE pro has six cameras. IP cameras with
companion DVRs/NVRs are the most commonly installed
applications, followed by megapixel cameras, thermal imaging
or night-vision cameras, and video doorbells.
For the most part, integrators are not earning storage fees
for camera recordings, even though many of the large video
doorbell companies are charging for those fees. Nearly half of
integrators (43%) do not earn any money from camera image
storage, while among those that do, the median is $10 per
month per camera. That would lead to the conclusion that
dealers are likely simply passing along the storage fees from
companies like Ring and Google or putting a tiny premium on
top of those monthly charges.
Commercial Security Jobs Average $16K+
The survey also slightly delved into commercial security
projects. The typical commercial security installation is much
larger with an average of 16 cameras and an average price
point of $16,212.
On the residential intrusion side in addition to burglar
alarms, integrators are installing smoke detectors (36% of security
projects), along with smart door locks (27% of projects)
and exterior intercoms (16%) and interior intercoms (15%).

Not surprisingly, more than half of integrators' security
installations feature video surveillance camera deployments
along with recording/storage capabilities.
Surveillance cameras are by far the most common type of
security equipment installed by integrators. The average
residential system has six cameras. Nearly half (43%) of projects
do not include monitoring or storage fees for cameras.
rity for years, the number of monitored accounts is somewhat
small when compared to a traditional alarm company. The
typical integrator involved in security has just 47 monitored
alarm accounts. However, more than one-in-four dealers (27%)
do not have any monitored accounts. CE Pro
