Dummy Cameras

All You Need To Know About Dummy Cameras As Security Measures The first question you may be asking yourself is: what is a dummy camera? A dummy camera, also known as a fake camera, is an item that imitates real surveillance system cameras that may be seen in stores, warehouses, or property structures. As a false camera they do not record any footage and merely present as some type of security. So, what is the point? Why waste money on something that does not do anything for security? The fact is that dummy cameras can be quite effective as a part of security systems. This article puts forward why a dummy camera can be beneficial. Due to these false cameras being a close imitation of real surveillance cameras, it is very difficult to determine which are real and which are not. Just as you cannot make this distinction, neither can a criminal. The first security feature any potential criminal will search for is the surveillance system cameras to check if the area is being monitored or not. Some criminals may be willing to operate under a surveillance system, but the majority of them are not. Using dummy cameras will ward potential villains away. Why not just use a real surveillance system if you are looking to deter criminals? Yes, true security systems can be highly effective, but a set of dummy cameras is far more affordable than operative security cameras. Furthermore, they are simpler to install and are typically battery operated. This makes them cost-effective, time-effective, and less likely to stop working if the property experiences a break in electricity. Dummy cameras are independent items and are not connected to each other, let alone being aired to additional security systems. This means that they are easy to manage and portable for easy relocation. Once again, a cost-effective feature to protect different areas without purchasing too many cameras. When using false cameras, it may be beneficial to highlight the use of security cameras for any potential criminals. This indicates that you have video surveillance systems and are able to capture video footage of physical activity. The most common means of pointing out camera systems is by posting a sign beneath the dummy camera saying: "Warning: CCTV" - or something similar. Of course, some criminals may be aware of the dummy camera concept and will be willing to take a chance on the possibility of false camera systems being used. To increase protection and imitation of real surveillance systems, it is possible to purchase dummy cameras including LED flashing lights, motion detectors, and verbal warnings. A criminal who is caught under flashing lights with a blaring verbal warning of "intruder alert, vacate immediately" is unlikely to risk walking passed or through a restricted area again. Similar to real surveillance cameras, the dummy camera is designed to be placed outside and can withstand various types of weather. The false cameras with additional features, such as a flashing LED light on the front, can also be placed outside and is highly effective in promoting the camera's realistic presentation. Some dummy cameras are now solar powered and use rechargeable batteries instead of having to utilize non-recyclable battery resources. Finally, a recommendation for all store owners who opt for dummy camera systems. The dome dummy camera is a highly beneficial option as criminals are unable to identify the direction in which the camera is pointing and footage is being captured. Placing this dome camera in the center of the room can protect the entire area easily.
