Do dummy security cameras work?

July 7, 2020 Comments Off on Do dummy security cameras work? By Andy

Security cameras are a great way to deter potential crimes being committed in your home or business but often come with a high price tag, due to this some people use dummy security cameras in hope it will still act as a visual deterrent, but the question is do they actually work?

They may deter some criminals more so than if there is no visual security at your property or business premises but they could also make you a victim of crime due to the fact that most criminals can easily spot a dummy camera. So, although they may deter novice criminals, they may actually catch the eye of a more skilled criminal.

In the event of an actual break in they are completely useless, they do not provide any footage which could help law enforcement solve the crime. For peace of mind and complete security we recommend a complete security camera system that will do its job in deterring potential crime and in the event of a crime, catch the perpetrator.
