Expanding An Avigilon System/Adding Analytics With No Avigilon Experience

We have someone that has offered to provide us with hardware and licenses since we are not an Avigilon dealer. If you read this, thanks. But I do not want to bog him down with tons of questions.

Client has a fairly new install of an Avigilon system with 8 or 9 cameras and they are using a VMAAS116P06. There was no monitor connected, so I could not access the system. I figured the users only have clients so I didn't bother looking from their stations.

They would like to add 2-3 cameras, which will be wired directly to the server/appliance. No wireless links etc. Will I need more licenses or does the device include 16 licenses?

They need 4 cameras at another part of the community which will have to be on its own system, then connected to the internet. They have a problem with people cutting the fence to get to a retail area (this is an apartment community). I told them Avigilon had some pretty good analytics, and we should be able to use these analytics to help them get notifications of people near the fence. How hard is this going to be to set up? Is this possible?

We will install the server/appliance etc in a shop with internet, and a couple cameras will come in via wireless links. Will it be fairly easy to get their existing client connected to the remote device?

I almost want to pass on this as we really do not need the hassle of learning a new VMS. But it would be good to get some experience with Avigilon, and the client has a very large portfolio so it would be nice to get in the door
