Should Manufactures be in the install business?
Isn’t this kind of against open market (fairness) philosophy of USA?
Or lock customer in to them, (or there only one Lic, vender in state/etc or two if you’re lucky…)
I’m tired of this lock in or (propriety) in house only or license of certain manufactures
(No names needed) this is more of a generic rant
Sure – I know they don’t want to have everybody to be installing there product (why I don’t know, think more market share) so only sale for Licensed contractors…say over the counter at whole sale or even on web.
I know Lon World “quote” Open / etc “unquote” but even some venders (not to name any) want you to buy/have a license – Kind of MLM to me even...
I guess I’m a free market guy and a manufacture locking in a customer (with little to no choice) or in competition with us –is just not right
I think that’s why people are going to lon or even companies that don’t require you drink there cool aid or sign over your first born
I even seen customers – (sic) go back – to relay logic controls (for you newbie’s – that wire and relays) because of this.
