Charging $1000 for basic programming is however ludicrous and simply not in line with any other industry. Especially when most people re-use templates and previous layouts for pretty much everything. And in this particular case when there's duplicate hardware. It's when you get into creative solutions that the time really adds up. But I think some people throwing around numbers need a reality check and better explain the time commitment. But even so, who's to say that $1000 isn't what the OP was already thinking?
Bottom line, you don't know anything about the OP at all.
Charging $1000 to program 6 devices is ludicrous? Obviously you don't so this for a living or you don't value your time. Everything URC does is a template, it's just the fine tuning that takes time. IF you're just putting out cookie cutter crap, then fine. Why don't you offer your services?
