Difference between Commercial Lease and Mobile Surveillance Lease
    Out of curiosity, because I'm working on a proposal for one now, what is different about the  Commercial Mobile Surveillance Lease contract?  Will the Commercial All in One lease which I just purchased work for that scenario?
    Yes, like you can use a teaspoon instead of a soup spoon with your soup.  The Mobile Surveillance Unit Lease was designed specifically for  the lease or rental of the mobile unit, described as:
           "The MSU consists of various components some of which are optional in the unit, consisting of state-of-the-art digital cameras, Pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) capability, Digital Video Recorder (DVR), High-speed Internet link for remote central station monitoring, live viewing, and playback, GPS, warning strobes, siren, and industrialized heavy-duty construction.  MSU remotely monitored to ensure 24/7 reliability.  Mobile trailer option available but not included unless specified herein."  
    It's like anything else, the MSU Lease is easier to use than the Commercial Lease when you're providing the mobile unit.  That said, you can definitely use the Commercial All in One lease and describe the mobile unit in the Schedule of Equipment and Services.
Which contract for camera sale no RMR
    We recently purchased the Kirschenbaum contract, and I had a quick (I think) question about projects without RMR attached.
    If we are installing a camera system that we likely won’t touch again except for occasional service on a time and materials basis, should we have the customer sign a Kirschenbaum contract?
Thank you,
    Absolutely.  The contract will provide protection for the installation.  Just as important, you are planning on doing repair service on request.  You don't want to do that without contractual protection.  The All in One [not sure if this is commercial or residential, but contracts are same on this issue] has an option of service, per call or RMR with labor and material included.  
    You should not be doing any security or fire alarm work without a written contract - signed before you do the work.
