Custom Installers Say Business is Up
Dave Daniels of ESC Thul, a custom integrator based in Denver, Colo., cited a "market recovery" and strong sales of Savant home automation systems as business drivers.
Patrick McFadden, president of the Big Picture Home Theater Co. in the Chicago area, said his clients are also sensing a recovery and that a stabilized stock market has helped push business up a bit. His customers are now buying "anything that enables streaming and anything that can be controlled by an iPad," he said.
"People no longer feel that the economy is in an endless downward spiral," he added.
