  1. Is this honestly the best pictures they can get? A residential Ring camera provides much clearer pictures. If banks care that much they need to step up their game, because that’s ridiculous. Random black male, with locks, wearing clothes. That really helps the Bay Area identify someone. Might as well say someone in the bay walked into bank and robbed it. Any tips?

    • I think this every time I see a large corporation using old security equipment… i mean really….you’re a bank….one of the largest targeted locations for a robbery, yet, their cameras are rubbish……and they dont spend the few hundred extra dollars to update all of them in each branch….smart…real smart. Maybe this will get them to update their equipment…doubt it.
