Dummy Surveillance Cameras

I’m here to pass along helpful information when I know it.  And, one such piece of information is to pass along info about dummy surveillance cameras.  While they may not be for everyone, I think they are something that virtually every homeowner or business owner should consider.

I think dummy surveillance cameras are helpful for most because they are incredibly effective, very affordable and very easy to install.  These fake cameras are made by the same makers of the real outdoor security cameras.  So, these fakes look just like the real thing.  And, as such, a burglar is going to think your home is completely covered with surveillance cameras.  And, since the units don’t include the camera technology inside, they only cost like $15-20 each.  So, someone could buy 4 or 5 and still not break the bank.  Finally, since there’s no real technology involved here, the installer only has to drive a few screws and they’re up.  Literally, a few minutes is all it takes to install several.

Home Surveillance Systems

I just took a phone call from a customer who had a question about a quad box for his home surveillance system.  It seem that he has an existing surveillance camera system and he needs a part for it.  But, the real reason I bring this up is that he says he has to get his system up and going again because people in the area of his Phoenix home are beginning to cause problems.

Its certainly a sign of the times.  With so many people unemployed or underemployed, people are having to find ways to pay their bills.  And, while I’m not advocating crime as being okay because of this, I have to admit, its understandable that these people have to do something.  But, what really bugs me is that part of the increase in crime, recently, still being tied to unemployment, is that so many people have excess time on their hands.  And, instead of doing something productive, some people are turning to crime just to fill their time.  Regardless of what’s happening around you and why, it’s apparent that we all need to at least consider home surveillance systems to increase the security around our property.

Fake Surveillance Cameras

If you’re like me and need to provide some level of security monitoring on your home or business, you probably would like to buy surveillance cameras or a complete system.  However, as financial times are tough, like me, you might not have a ton of money.  Fake Surveillance Cameras might just be the ticket.

You see, fake surveillance cameras look just like the real outdoor security cameras, as they’re made by the same makers.  They just leave out the camera technology.  So, these fake cameras only cost like $15-25.  So, you can pick up several for less than a hundred bucks and install them in a matter of minutes.  Since they don’t connect to a monitoring station or anything, the installation is a snap.  Drive a few screws and you’re done.  And, if a burglar comes by, or WHEN one comes by I should say, they’ll think you have a full blown security camera system and hopefully will just keep moving down the road.  Affordable.  Easy.  Effective.

Outdoor Security Cameras

Pick up any newspaper and you’ll see.  You’ll see why virtually everyone homeowner and business owner needs to have outdoor security cameras installed to protect their property.  It’s a shame, I know.  But, we have to face reality.

And, whether you install real Outdoor Security Cameras or Dummy Outdoor Security Cameras, you really SHOULD do something.  If your budget allows and you want to capture real video of what’s going on around your place, install real security cameras.  If your budget is tight or you just want to put something up as a deterrent, than fake surveillance cameras might be the choice for you.  But, unless you happen to office next door to an ADT office, you really need to do something.  Burglars are coming into all neighborhoods now as the economy continues to tank.  People are turning to crime as a means to feed their families and pay their mortgage.  It may not be right, but it is reality.

Outdoor Security Cameras

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting kinda spooked by all the crime and uprisings, flash mobs and riots all across the world, but now all across the country.  I have installed outdoor security cameras at my house to add an extra layer of protection for me and my family.

There are all sorts of outdoor security cameras available.  And, rather than just buying a few loose cameras and piece-mealing a system together, I bought a complete system kit online that was incredibly easy to install.  I could choose from numerous configurations.  But, I chose just a four camera system, then added 4 additional dummy security cameras to stretch my security dollar.  I think it took maybe two hours tops to install everything and have the security system up and running. Now, if someone wants to try to enter my property, I know about it as its happening and can tune it to watch who it is and what they’re doing.

Dummy Outdoor Security Cameras

Looking for ways to get some kind of home security but don’t have much money to spend?  Join the crowd, right?  Fortunately, Dummy Outdoor Security Cameras might just be what you need.  They’re cheap and highly effective.

Dummy outdoor security cameras look just like the real security cameras for your home.  However, the maker simply doesn’t install the actual camera equipment inside of them.  So, they look real because they’re made by the same manufacturers, but they’re much less expensive since they don’t have anything inside.  For literally ten bucks, you can buy one.  And, they only take a couple of minutes to install as you just have to drive a few screws to mount them.  Get four or five of these things and place them around your property.  For 50 bucks, you can outfit your home in such a way that any would be burglar is going to think that there has got to be a better place to rip off.  That’s what you want, right?

Outdoor Security Cameras

outdoor security camerasHave you seen the statistics for your area?  I’m talking about the crime statistics.  They publish ours in the newspaper each month.  STAGGERING!  Virtually every category saw an increase from last year to this year and most categories were double digit increases.  People are hungry and broke.  I know its not right, but they’re turning to crime to get by.  We have to turn to outdoor security cameras and other forms of protection to get by.

Whether you want a weapon or outdoor security cameras (or both) you have got to do something. Anyone sitting idly by and waiting for things to get better and hope that they don’t become the victim is a sitting duck.  As their neighbors are busy preparing their homes against a break in, they’re basically saying, come on over here burglar, my home’s not protected.  Where do you think the burglar or vandal is going to go?  To the one with the camera system or the one without the camera system?

Need Outdoor Security Cameras?

outdoor security camerasMost people talk a big talk about what they’d do if someone broke into their home and threatened their loved ones and all. And, there are many people who would follow through with those threats.  However, not everyone would and, more importantly, what if they weren’t home when someone was breaking in.  Outdoor Security Cameras might be the better choice than big talk.

I recommend every home has either real or fake outdoor security cameras on them.  Of course, real cameras are more effective in that they can actually record the activities should someone actually break in.  But, they’re more expensive and require more time and supplies to install. The fake cameras are much less expensive and quick to install, but of course cannot record video.  But, regardless of your final choice, I like them because they tell a would be burglar or vandal that “THIS HOUSE IS PROTECTED”.  And, they can’t visually tell the difference between the real cameras and the fake security cameras.  So, hopefully, they’ll just decide to move on down the road and leave it alone.  That way, no one will have to back up that big talk.

A Camera Dummy

camera dummyPeople are trying to find ways of protecting their property that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.  And, many people are using a camera dummy or two on their property to keep burglars and vandals from breaking in or damaging their place.

One nice thing about a camera dummy is that they are very inexpensive.  Usually, $10-20 is all you need to pick one up.  But, they look 100% real.  They are made by the same makers of real outdoor security cameras.  The makers use the same housing, they simply do not install the actual expensive camera technology.  So, from the street these fake surveillance cameras look just like a real one.  Also, they only take minutes to install.  Generally, the installer only has to drive 3 or 4 screws and tuck the fake able in that’s it.  Finally, since no expensive monitoring equipment is required, no additional cost is necessary.  A few minutes and a few bucks is all it takes to install these great dummy cameras.

Outdoor Security Cameras

I went to a friend’s house the other day and was amazed to see, once I walked in the front door, his homemade version of a home surveillance system.  I hadn’t noticed the outdoor security cameras before I entered, so I was kind of surprised to see the multiple monitors he had near his front door, allowing him to keep an eye on his property.

While Outdoor Security Cameras are a great idea, I kind of question, though, his thought process for not making the cameras more visible to someone nearing the property.  I mean, wouldn’t you want a would be burglar or vandal to know that you’re monitoring the security of your property, hopefully causing them to think twice and not even mess with your home?  I mean, that’d be my approach.  While I wouldn’t necessarily have the cameras mounted in places that my neighbors wouldn’t like, you can bet I’d have my security cameras visible enough to at least be seen.  I’d rather prevent a crime than to allow it to actually take place, but to get footage of it.
