I Have Lots Of Questions, I Need Help On Camera Performance Questions And QUOTING!

Greetings,

My name is Zac. I am from TX. I recently began trying to break away from the business I have been an independent contractor for for 8+ years (mostly camera installs and networking support/installs, and IT support/installs). I am very proficient with installation and knowledgeable of camera equipment (mostly IP, much analog too tho), computers, network equipment, etc.....I worked for my boss for years, but one day, somebody came up and told me "Dude, your worth a lot more than 20 bux an hour, you could do so much better"......I am my bosses only guy for 8 years plus and I sometimes hit 4-5 places a day doing different camera work, installs, computers, IT, access, AV, etc.....its given me a very awesome skillset.....while he kind of sits in the background and manages me. I am extremely proficent with IP cameras. Analog, not as much as IP but still proficient ;)
