Thoughts?

One thing that comes to mind, in the context of the growing battle with Amazon, is that (A) Vivint and ADT are going to be hard to beat for customers that appreciate or accept the direct, high touch approach but that (B) those high sales costs, while great for beastmoding sales reps require the traditional companies to be at a significant structural cost disadvantage.
