look just like the real thing
on March 16, 2014
I installed these throughout my home and they look like the real thing. They even come with the audio/video cables attached to the camera.
What I did was drill a hole in the mounting plate where it gets screwed to the house, cut the connectors off the ends and ran the wire through the hole. Make sure you tie a couple of knots on the wire so if someone tries to pull the wire out and tug on it, it wont and they will think that it is actually a wire being used to power the camera and record. Then you can tuck the wires behind the mounting plate, screw it to the house and your done.
I will probably buy more as amazon was sold out. Couple these with a few camera signs and motion lights and you should have some added security to your property.
In my honest opinion, unless you are monitering cameras 24/7, and can alert authorities if there is a break in, cameras are useless. The burglar can be in and out by the time your camera sends you a motion alert, you receive it, alert the cops and they arrive. A good 15-20 minutes can pass in that whole process. Now you got robbed and all you have is a photo of the burgler and now the cops have to count on him robbing the neighborhood again, catch him and be able to identify him.
