Albany -- Setting up a home surveillance system can be fairly easy and inexpensive.  The Renos, whose system caught burglars in the act, bought their system at Sam's Club for $130.      

The store offers a variety of systems that can be installed wirelessly and connected to a TV and VCR.      

Police say it's a useful tool for those who continue to be the target of thieves. "They went and got a security system, which was fairly inexpensive and installed it and a picture is worth a thousand words and that evidence is a firm foundation for us to take that to prosecution," said Lt. Benita Childs of the Albany Police Department.     

The cheapest system we found at Sam's Club was $68. The most expensive was $249.
