Avigilon claims the H4 SL line is their "easiest-to-install" camera.

I believe it, they should know.

Does anyone know if these include the mini-USB for the H4A series wifi focusing tool? Together, the labor savings may be significant.

Yes they support WIFI AP for setup.

Avigilon H4 SL dome video showing setup:

do you know if these cameras manufactured Canada "made in Canada", or in other country?

Avigilon has two manufacturing locations Canada and US.
