Whether operating a 100-store chain or a single convenience store, security is a necessity. This mindset led Todd Jacobson, owner and operator of Citgo Sooper Stop in West Fargo, North Dakota, to explore affordable options in digital video surveillance. When he purchased the store last July, there was no surveillance system in place. The difference between the digital quality and the old analog tapes is like night and day, according to Jacobson, who worked for 15 years in the liquor store business using black-and-white CCTV equipment. Currently, Jacobson has three cameras inside the store and one outside to monitor the pump, but plans to add additional cameras once he opens a foodservice area.
