Dummy Security Cameras - Effective Low Cost Burglar Deterrent

Apr 19, 2008
A security camera provides safety to your home or business. Security camera also helps in identification of criminals. But many money-conscious people do not want to buy a security camera as they consider it as an unexpected expenditure. Buying a fake or dummy security camera is a good option for such people. Dummy cameras are used to fool intruders or general watchers as these cameras look like a real security camera. Dummy security cameras are cheaper than real security cameras. You can get a dummy camera in half the cost than of a real camera. Fake cameras can work as good as real security camera. But for the places, where security is most important such as banks, stock exchange, gas station, and malls, you should not rely on fake cameras.

Dummy cameras are good for home or small business, where basic security is required. A dummy security camera looks like an original camera. Dummy cameras can be useful in a small business, where you want to keep a watch on every angle of your office. Dummy cameras can also be very helpful for home for careful monitoring of maid or servant in your absence. Sometimes sight of security camera is enough for a person to think twice before doing anything wrong.

Today, dummy security cameras come with advanced features like flashing lights, pan, tilt or zoom, or motion sensors. You may feel that the dummy camera is working like an original one but these features are present in dummy camera just to give it a real look. Buying a fake camera that does not give real look is simply a waste of money. The real look given to dummy camera can save your home or business without spending much on real security camera. Motion detectors in dummy cameras move the camera when it finds some movement. Moving camera definitely gives the impression of a real camera to anyone. Fake cameras with motion detectors are expensive dummy cameras.

Dummy cameras can not record anything as they do not have any VCR or DVR systems. Some dummy cameras come with tilt or zooming option. These cameras look like a real camera as they turn around when they spot some movement. You can also find dummy cameras with flashing lights. These camera uses motion sensors and LEDs. Motion sensors give the signal to the LED on some movement or heat changes which causes LED to start flashing. Moving camera and flashing red light give others, impression of being monitored. People feel that there activities are being watched and hence prevents them from doing anything wrong.

Camera location of a dummy camera also plays a major role in getting the desired results. Camera should be visible to the intruders to give the feeling that they are under observation. This may prevent some incidence from happening. The advantage of fake security camera is that they are cheap and one can afford to install more than one dummy camera for a large area.

Dummy cameras can be used with real security cameras. This will make really difficult for outsiders to identify between the real and dummy cameras. Placing more than one camera is always a good idea to monitor intruders.

So to protect your home or business, buy an affordable dummy camera and secure your family.
