45 Min - Security (Cam/etc) Consult

20


20 per session - Virtual OK

Assist you in understanding your security needs, what hardware and software is available, what it should cost and what the labor will be. I am not selling you a product, nor am i endorsing or paid by any vendor. You will be empowered to either purchase and install yourself, or contact any local vendor to do it for you, and know exactly what a Fair price is. I can do an additional consultation if you choose to DIY in case of any challenges you face during instillation.

Training & Qualifications


I have 5 years experience installing wireless, wired, and mixed security systems. With the prevalence of Wifi there is often no need to go to the expense of having someone do this for you, but as every camera and system is different, having someone to consult is a great benefit. I use these in my own home and office, as well as the homes and offices of various clients. No 2 systems are the same, but the same system will get you 20 different prices. Know whats fair before you buy!

Availability & Preferences


Anytime

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Charles Allen

By day: I am a Senior Financial Analyst with a fortune 500 company. I also own a side business doing IT support and instillation for small businesses. I can assist in budgeting, financial planning, a...nd reporting; Automating these processes, and IT / Physical security for your property. My Philosophy in this area is this: I provide my clients with information to make informed decisions. A satisfied person will return to me for sound, trusted advice, and not things i can empower them to do themselves. I want to be a partner with my clients, not use them as an ATM. By Night: I am..BATMAN! JK! I am a father, farmer, Tinkerer, homesteader. I spent 8 years as a Mechanic in the US Army where i learned how to make do with very little. This was a synergistic fit for the upbringing i had on my family's farm with my father who was also a military mechanic. I learned a wide variety of trades from OTJ/Needs based learning: Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, Fabrication, welding, milling, layout and design, farming. I maintain a maintenance/tinkering shop on my property where i turn out everything from custom knives to full tractor overhauls and rebuilds. My passions include alternative energy, mixing technology and simplicity, rainwater collection, and self sufficiency. I do find it funny that in today's world what used to be called "Farm-life" or "Making it on your own" is now considered "prepping". show more
