#50 Hidden Costs
When installing any ‘smart’ system, whether wired or wireless, there are a few obvious costs:
– The hardware that is installed
– Software licenses that are paid one-off or recurring
– The labour that goes into the installation
And then there are costs that are usually harder to see:
– Commissioning of the system
– Future updates
Systems with many of these hidden costs will work harder to hide them. This has been happening with wired lighting control for a long time. Once it’s installed, you’ll have to continue paying unless you want to face the system not being operational.
Look out for hidden costs, especially with legacy systems!
