Question: Should I add fake cameras to an existing surveillance system?

Answer: You can if you feel that a few additional cameras would be of benefit. Just make sure to mix them in with the other working cameras. 



One way to cut down on crime, is to make sure that people on your property always think that cameras may be watching them. A fake camera is a terrific way to do this


  1. Generally thieves will be looking for a setting that has the lowest possible risk of being caught. They do not care what property they are breaking into.
  2. Even if thieves suspect that a camera is fake, they will not risk being caught especially if the property next door has no cameras and it would be just as easy to break into.
  3. Fake cameras cost far less the real cameras, plus there is no maintenance cost, other than a couple of AA batteries. Solar Powered cameras are also available.

Protecting your valuables is now a simple task. However choosing your equipment to help you do so is not simple. You just have to be smarter than a potential thief. Think about how a thief looks at your home. Can you install fake cameras? Will they pass as the real thing? More than likely, you can and they will.

Fake cameras are as effective in deterring crime as are real cameras. If you intent to protect your personal property and home, then security cameras are the best way to go. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford some of the more elaborate security systems available on the market today. This is where fake security cameras come into play. The trick though, is to purchase fake equipment that so completely resembles the real thing, that would-be thieves cannot tell the difference.

Here are some things to consider in regards to fake cameras

  • COST - A good fake system does not have to cost you a bundle of money, rather it should look like it cost you a bundle of money.
  • LENS - If you are trying to fool an intruder, he or she needs to believe they are being caught on film. Keep in mind, the first identifiable characteristic of a fake camera is the plastic lens or the unit may not have any lens. Look at the lens on the fake security camera, it should have a glass lens.
  • LIGHTS – That little red light is another telltale sign of a real system. Many fake cameras are now available with motion detection and the camera will follow the intruder. Your fake camera should have this feature as well. It all comes down to the appearance your system gives the intruder.
  • MOUNTS – A good quality mount will weight a considerable amount. If the mount looks shoddy or weak, this will give the intruder a good indication that the unit is fake.
  • Mixing – Mixing fake security cameras with real ones is also another good idea. Once a phony unit is detected, thieves will think that all the security cameras are phony and their concern about being caught is greatly diminished.
  • Fake security cameras can provide almost the same level of protection that real ones can. You won’t be able to play a video recording of a crime, and so they do lose a little bit of benefit in that regard. However, they will be entirely successful if they keep the crime from ever happening. And therefore, if there are no criminals willing to visit your home or business, you will not need to have a video recording of what they were doing. A fake camera keeps your possessions safe, and without spending much money.
