Testing the water/checking on resale value of used C4 gear

Recommended Posts

I have a client who may be interested in selling off a fair amount of Control4 components in order to recoup his loss during the changeover to a different system. I just wanted to see if there was enough resale value in it for him to try to sell it on eBay, or here, or elsewhere.

 

He has the following:

1 HC800 with no licenses

1 HC800 with licenses

4 HC250's with licenses

5 SR250 remotes

1 16x16 audio matrix (current version)

1 16 channel, non matrix amp

5 wireless music bridges

Approximately 15 adaptive phase dimmers

Approximately 8 accessory dimmers

1 configurable keypad

Bonus equipment:

1 SnapAV landscape speaker package with 4, 4" speakers and crown amp

 

He hasn't 100% committed to making the changeover just yet, and part of that decision will be based on what he can get for this lot of materials. Obviously, he would prefer to sell it as one bulk package, but certainly could be convinced to part it out as well.

So, end users, dealers, etc, any general ideas on the worth of this would be greatly appreciated

First I'd think the best thing any HA salesperson could do in this in a situation like this is rarely propose rip it up and start again. O know you see the dollar signs of a big sale but that is not doing right by this customer.

That's a lot of quality hardware, not a 8 year old system.

This guy needs a great control4 dealer not whatever sold him this.

He needs troubleshooting and programming work not the cost and disruption of a fresh install.

HC800 with licences should get 600 - 750. Without take 250 off those numbers.

250 licenced is 250-350

SR250 50-125 based on condition.

All of this is cents on the dollar for what should be a working system. This is eBay so take 15% commissions on eBay and paypal and the time to sell it or knock 60% off for the guy that buys the lot to part it out.

What gen dimmers are these. Are the led top and bottom or on the right.

OP never said that the client is upgrading his control4 gear.. just switching systems.. the client may be switching to crestron for all we know

I know. Thats what I read also. But that's about of recent hardware. This should not be a poorly performing system that needs ripping out and starting again.

This is at most a 3 year old system. With a lot of processing power. Installed to spec. A HC250 for each osd I presume.

The processors alone above were 10k. The remotes another 1.5. Msrp which I imagine the client paid is in the 20-30 range there.

Most here are running homes successfully on less than this.

Yes the customer is likely switching to creation or savant or somesuch but without a proper needs assessment and install is likely to be another near 6 figs out of pocket and atill dissatisfied.

Hi,

 

So here is my back of an envelope offer for you.

I'll offer $2020 for it all

That is 50% of ebay value less a further 20% haircut because I have no clue if this is all working, from a smoke free, pet free environment etc, nor age, nor condition.

All rack mounted devices to be shipped with rack ears.  All devices to be shipped with power cables.  All controllers to be shipped with green euroconnectors.

Visual condition of all devices to be verified by photographs prior to shipping.  Visual damage results in a further 20% haircut on price (especially on SR250s).

APD and KPD must be removed by undoing wire nuts and unthreading wire.  No clipping / shortening install wires.

All SR250s must have no evidence of battery leaks and intact battery doors.

APD with both tabs removed will have a further 10% haircut.
