Fake Security Cameras - Reduce Break-ins

Apr 24, 2008
Fake security camera also known as dummy security camera is imitation of a real security camera. Fake cameras are used to fool people as they exactly look like a real camera. People use fake cameras, as these cameras are quite cheap and available in half the cost of original camera. Sometimes, you may get a fake camera which is as cheap as less than 100$. For home or small business, a fake camera works quite well as no one is able to make out that the camera is not real one.

The main purpose of fake security camera is to prevent intruders by fooling them. After watching the camera people feel that their activities are being monitored, and it can prevent them from doing anything wrong. These fake cameras are weatherproof so it can be used anywhere. Fake cameras provide security and can give you lot of mental comfort. Many people who have small business prefer to have a fake security camera than a real one as a fake camera is a cost-effective solution for safety comfort.

There are lots of dummy or fake cameras available in the market. Some fake cameras come with advance features such as motion detectors, LED, and flashing light. But these features present in dummy camera only give it a real look and are non-functional. There are some factors, which you should consider before deciding of buying a fake camera or a real security camera. Installing a dummy camera will not be a good idea:

* If you are having an established business and have good relationship with your clients.

* For shopkeepers with lot of footfalls, as you have to be very careful about the inventory. Dummy cameras can not record anything hence will not be of any use if something is stolen from the shop.

* For jewelers or shopkeepers who deal in valuables as for them they have to keep track of their employees also.

It is always good to use fake cameras along with real ones. For a large place where more than one camera is required, you can install real security cameras at main places (like entrance or exit). Dummy camera can be used at the places, where you just want to inform others about the presence of camera and monitoring is not that important.

A fake security camera acts as a prevention tool and works quite well at places where one can compromise with the security. Fake cameras are good for people who do not want to stretch their budget. As these cameras are very cheap in comparison to real one, they easily fit in everyone's budget. But these fake cameras have some disadvantages too. The major disadvantages include:

* Poor imitation quality does not give a real look to the camera. And even a general person can figure out that the camera is not real, and thus it can be a total waste of money.

* Normally, trained criminals can identify a fake camera just by looking at it. Fake cameras can be identified with their motions and cable settings.

* Mostly dummy cameras use battery. Fake cameras with features like motion detection, flash light etc. requires frequent battery change, as it consumes lot of battery.

Despite of all the above mentioned disadvantages, a fake security camera is the most affordable, low-cost solution for providing security to your family and business.
