the clarity of the picture is really good. more places should have this kind of camera system. I guess the banks need to put one more camera up to get the plate numbers. Another thing, why do people leave purses, camera's phones, etc in plain sight for these crooks to break their windows & steal what you have. People just don't think it can happen to them. There are plenty of crooks out there that will take their own mother's last dollar & that means they won't hesitate to do it to any of us!!
