Praise for PTZOptics Support

It is SO nice to have a manufacturer that actually answers the phone and has support you can reach when you need them! A simple setup change that I couldn't find the answer to and 2 minutes later I was in business!

Just want to give a massive shout out to the PTZOptics Support team. I have been speaking with Sean and Jonathan on various occasions and they are awesome and super helpful. When you're wondering what equipment to invest in the quality of the after sales support should always be a factor and PTZOptics in my opinion provides amazing after sales care and support.
