How Much Do You Charge For a Service/Maintenace Package?

We've been in business 10 years and our companies focus is primarily video cameras. We don't really offer a maintenance package, but we are now beginning to do more access control and intrusion, so we are re-evaluating things. What is a typical market-acceptable price to charge for a service maintenance package? Is it decided per camera or per door reader in the case of access? I've heard people say $300 per door per year for maintenance, but I have no idea if this is standard or expensive.
