I install surveillance and all types of intrusion prevention systems. I was asked to install a quality surveillance system around this company’s property. They had three large buildings and a long driveway. In order to keep it reasonable I used a midline camera with a high megapixel and good light sensitivity. The quote, installed, came to $8,700 (which is very reasonable for this kind of installation). 

Client: We love the specs for the system. The price is a little high, can we lower it a little bit?

Me: We may be able to work something out. I could modify a few small things and bring the price down a little. What price range are you looking to be in?

Client: We would purchase the system today if you can come in under $1,000.

Me: I’m sorry but we won’t be able to do business together.

They never responded. I still don’t know what they were thinking.
