Accenta 7 quick power cut alarm/then no status lights?

On the topic of £10 profit. This is worth a watch, even if your employed or a customer similar things apply.

There are things a lot of people don't consider from the other POV, like how much it costs to send you as an employed engineer to a job in the first place. Or how much time has gone into that job before you rock up in your van.

Similar considerations from a customers POV, if your looking at a system on price alone then consider how much of that price is related to kit quality. Businesses can only survive by making a profit after paying the wages.

When I first took over WSS I did a calc of all the overheads rent (at the time I didnt own) vans insurance, mobile phones, non-productive staff, fuels, office electricity, all the stuff you need to run alarm co. Wages plus holiday pay, national insurance, and now pensions on top, and at the time it was £34.50 to break even in 2003, did it recently £56.50.  We turnover nearly £million We paid £18k in corporation tax (another add on to the sums above)  you can probably work out the net profit from those figures, not even close to a footballers wage.
