The quest dialogue says that Skier wants to stay informed about what's happening in the area to have a peace of mind. He adds, "I’ll give you a hint of some shady spots where I’d like you to install some smart cams. So, I want surveilance over three areas: the road to port on Customs - stash it somewhere in the bushes near the blue containers, the other cam should be placed near the pier at the sawmill in the Woods - stash it right onto the wooden planks, and the last cam has to watch the Kiba store entrance, it's in the ULTRA mall." He adds that the cameras can be found at Mechanic’s.
Naturally, the objectives of the Informed Means Armed quest are as follows:
Install a WI-FI camera to watch the sawmill dock on Woods
Install a WI-FI camera to watch the road to the port on Customs
