High Quality Security Cameras vs. Low Quality Security Cameras
Ever wondered why police have a challenge catching bank robbers? Most banks and commercial properties installed security cameras years ago, long before the newer high definition technology became available. The other option is the company has cheaped out on the cameras.
This was back when cameras were super expensive and quite primitive in image quality. With the general public seeing these blurry images on the news, its no wonder many people don't think security cameras are effective. But that just isn't true with today's technology. That being said, there is a huge difference between a low-cost "security kit" from a big box store, and one where the cameras are customized to your application and the quality of the camera's definition is guaranteed. When you're going to make this investment, it's best to make sure that you're actually purchasing cameras that will meet your expectations, and very rarely do low cost commercial kits do that.
When you've already made such a major investment like security cameras in the past - that are technically still working - many are reluctant to replace them until the police tell them that they can’t really work with the poor image quality to identify the robbers. This is why you see poor images in news reports.
The good news is, that todays technology is a fraction of the cost it was years ago, and the high definition security camera images are light years ahead of what they used to be. They're more affordable for both residential and business applications, and can be reviewed remotely on your mobile devices. With this in mind, it makes sense for companies not to be complacent in replacing older technology for something that will actually provide the image quality necessary for the police to catch the criminals.
It's better to be proactive and replace the old equipment BEFORE getting robbed. This makes the job of catching the bad guys much easier for the police, and you’ll find them more responsive as a result.
