High Quality Cameras Are a Necessity in Good Video Surveillance

December 30, 2015

Why aren’t more businesses using cameras with high quality range to get faces when it’s sunny outside and shady inside? According to the AJC, this man swiped nearly $20K in Louis Vuitton bags from a Buckhead store.

The unidentified man entered the Bella Bag store in Buckhead around 11 a.m. Monday, Atlanta police said.

He was well-dressed, complete with a long tan coat and a fedora, when he walked into the Bella Bag store in Buckhead around 11 a.m. Monday, according to police.

But the man had no intention of actually buying anything. Instead, he grabbed six Louis Vuitton purses from the shelves and ran, even swinging one of the bags at a store clerk as he left.

Video surveillance cameras captured the man, who later got into a black sedan with tinted windows being driven by someone else. Now, Atlanta police would like to find the man who grabbed the purses, valued between $2,700 and $3,100 each, bringing the total to more than $19,000, including tax. Read more



Analog or ControlByNet Digital – Which Would You Choose?

A recently recorded robbery shows three men entering a Title Loans and holding up employees. While surveillance got several angles of all three men, the quality of the footage forced police to issue this disclaimer, “Pictures of the suspects appear to show them in purple clothes…they were actually wearing black”. If you are the robbers, grainy, blurry and discolored analog images are your ally as it makes it more difficult for police to accurately identify the culprits.

TruckStill 3The image of the truck shows the dramatic quality difference when using ControlByNetDigital surveillance. Not only can you clearly see the make and model of the car, you can also see the two-tone paint job and the differences in window tint.

Which would you prefer and is it time to update your video surveillance from analog to digital before you are faced with a similar dilemma?
