Dummy Security Camera - Advice and Information

You may choose from our range below but first please read the following helpful information:

 

Dummy cameras are an highly effective way to deter intruders at a fraction of the price of normal surveillance systems. A dummy camera however, should be chosen with care, as some of them are easily recognizable as fakes. This is why many of the dummy cameras offered by Crime Prevention Products use real camera housings.

The use of dummy cameras could save you hundreds or thousands of pounds per year. Real security camera systems will deter intruders but can be quite expensive. Purchasing inappropriate security equipment will waste your time and money so it's critical that you develop a plan to deter intruders. Dummy cameras should be part of this plan.

Choosing your Dummy CCTV Camera

Use these tips to aid you in choosing the right dummy cctv camera

The placement and type of dummy cctv camera should be considered carefully, due to the range of different types available for indoor and outdoor use. For example, if you have high ceilings in your home or office you should consider a Dome style camera. There are now Internal quality dummy cameras that are motorised and will sweep through 180 degrees making it look as if the camera is watching a complete area of view. For larger outdoor areas such as large buildings, storage yards or car parks, then the use of a large professional model is called for. 

While being an effective deterrant, the main reason to purchase dummy cctv cameras instead of the real thing is to save money but sometimes it makes sense to purchase a real camera or at least a real camera housing. If you ever plan on using real security cameras then you should buy one or two of them upfront. You now have the option of expanding your system once you can afford it and in the meantime you can supplement your system with dummy cameras and nobody will know which is which.

 

Although a dummy cctv camera is a low cost alternative to a real camera, you should also consider using dummy camera equipment in conjunction with other security measures. If you have a business, and are using real cameras, plug the real camera into a monitor and position the monitor near the front of the premises. This will increase the effect of being watched and improve the effectiveness of your security system and your visitors or customers will not know which are real and which are dummy. Always display correct signage on all approaches to your premises, not only does it make it obvious that cameras are in use before they even enter the area of protection but when using real CCTV it is a legal requirement to display such signs warning people, so when using dummy cameras you should also errect signage or it may be a complete giveaway.

 

Whether for the home or office, with care and forethought you can implement a dummy cctv camera system that will squeeze every penny out of your security budget.

Why choose a Dummy Security Camera?

Dummy security cameras look very real, there is no need to store video recordings, installation is relatively easy and the equipment is very low maintenance.  Common sense dictates that, it is better to have a dummy security camera installed than no security precaution at all. An intruder may think twice before entering or stealing merchandise from a premises which apears to have surveillance equipment installed.
