Security Cameras Getting a Facelift

"If you want equipment that does a quality job, and gives you the desired end result, it's not a small investment. But then neither is being robbed or burglarized," says Dale Elliott, owner of All-State Security Industries.

Stores like Toot-n-Totum are big enough to afford their own security.

But how advanced their equipment's technology is plays a major role in catching criminals.

Security companies specialize in providing security with the latest technology.  Camera angles and lighting can make all the difference in identifying a suspect.

Even though that technology does not come cheap, it's worth it.

"If you want equipment that does a quality job, and gives you the desired end result, it's not a small investment. But then neither is being robbed or burglarized," says Dale Elliott, owner of All-State Security Industries.

Elliott also says VHS tapes are yesterday's news.

Security cameras, like everything else, are going digital, which means clearer pictures.

Camera lenses should automatically adjust to light, so robberies that take place at nighttime are easily viewed.

Camera placement can also determine whether or not a criminal is caught.  Because if a face isn't visible, it's much harder to identify the suspect.

The bottom line is good security comes with a price tag. But it could help you nab a suspect should you get robbed.
