Can you pick up a feed on your TV? A buddy of mine does home security, his home system is set up to automatically switch the TV channel to the camera on the front door when the doorbell is rung.
If it were me, I'd go with the wide angle. You could easily see if the guy on the left has a weapon, or if it's multiple people, not so much on the right.
If it comes down to a matter of LEO IDing a suspect, they have all kinds of video enhancement software, my first concern would be knowing who and what I'd be up against.
Just my .02...
