CCTV Buyer's Guide To Dummy Cameras


Dummy camera's are a great low cost way to boost the presence of on-site security. They're realistic and most people couldn't tell the difference between a good quality dummy and a real camera. Here are a few things to consider when buying one.

A B C to go for...

ABC
Always make sure that real cameras are used wherever necessity demands and budget allows. Decoys are useful to increase overall security but cannot replace the benefit of having a working CCTV system.

Buy a style and colour similar to any other cameras already installed so they blend in as well as possible. As long as they all look like they work together the decoys won't look out of place. This could be eyeball, dome or all-in-one.

Consider if you want the LEDs in the camera to light up. They work nicely without the flashing light but why not choose a solar panel model with rechargeable batteries for a very low maintenance option.

60 Second guide
  1. Pick a decoy camera that matches any real ones installed.
  2. Consider fitting a decoy next to a real one but pointing in a different direction, no one will think it is fake.
  3. Don't forget to "cable" the camera to keep it looking real.
The Facts:

The Facts
It's a legal requirement to display warning signs when you are recording CCTV but not if you only have dummy camera's fitted. However not having a sign displayed could be a good clue that it's a fake, as well as raising questions whether you're following the Data Protection Act.

Did You Know?

Did you know?
Decoys have been used for various purposes throughout history. During both World Wars dummy tanks were used by Allied Forces to confuse their opposition in two ways.

  1. It looked like the Allies had a lot more tanks than they actually had deployed and therefore appeared as a more threatening force.
  2. They were used to hide and downplay the importance of the real tanks whereabouts and disguised where they were likely to attack next.

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode - they don't require high levels of power and are great for status lights like those used on decoy camera's.
