E house work comes to a halt

The company [E house] looked to be off to a great start with reported sales of $4.5 million last year, up from $720,000 in 2000, said Kurt Scherf, vice president of research for Parks Associates, a Dallas-based group that analyzes the home automation industry.

Reports about e house closing its office seem to conflict with the company's glowing press releases issued just a few weeks ago, Scherf said. E house depended on the new housing market, and it's possible that the volume of work just wasn't enough to offset the expenses of operating its offices.

"Technology work is a volume business, and this type of business is not high volume," he said.

Scherf said home automation businesses are better suited for "mom and pop operations."
