Coming up in the November/December 2012 issue of SP&T News

The surveillance side of security has long promised more information and better real-time analysis when it comes to interpreting camera data. We check in with leading vendors to gauge their product offerings and see if the "free with purchase" solutions are worth hanging on to or if third-party add-ons are still the go-to option for end users.
