I think this may be more of an "urban" thing. There is some in Baltimore, but now that we have a "sister" company that does security, communications, and other "low-volt" stuff, I wouldn't see much of it anyhow.
I do 'integration' for offices etc. But most folks here are none too keen at the momentfor home use. I think the systems are probably ahead of their time just now. Only the wealthy or gimmick freaks seem at all interested
I have tried and still try to some extent to sell automation/ integration but there just isn't the market for it here that you could find elsewhere. About the most we ever get is installing low temp alarms that dial preset numbers.
Here's an idea that recently worked for me on a custom.. Sell the fact that you can put in a single or double gang switch plate to control lights as opposed to a bank of 16 sliders with a bunch of labels.
Set scenes, tie it in with alarm controls, etc.. Lots you can do.
