Got these half for general deterrent value against unknown vandals/thieves and half for a nutty neighbor who likes to destroy other peoples stuff out of jealousy for what she CAN afford, but doesn't yet have ! Certifiable !! The other day I overheard her outside on the phone talking to someone as she STARED at our 'cameras'. She was discussing getting her own system from a local security company. We are in townhomes and she can see them as close as any burglar ever can. These look REAL and for the $60 some dollars I paid for my six I am more than pleased.

BATTERIES - Get Eveready Ultimate Lithium AA's (Last up to 9x longer than conventional) -- the cold won't kill them and you won't be climbing up so often. I have used these in my 2 outdoor weather transmitters and they last years.

BATTERY COMPARTMENT - even though it is covered from direct rain by the shield that slides over it, I could tell that there would be a future issue if you are interested in the red blinking LED feature. These cameras will normally be facing at some downward angle and when the shield is in place there is a gap between camera body and shield and rain water will be able to run across the top of the camera. Over time water infiltrating a drop here and there into the compartment will corrode the simple electronics and no more light! Get a roll of 1/2"x75' Scotch Mounting Tape and put a several inch strip over the rearmost top lip of the camera body (don't take top protective strip off this foam tape - don't want the shield to be stuck onto it). Put on the shield and notice that the gap is gone. Direct running water won't cause premature blinking LED demise.

Everyone thinks they are real. Great product. Would buy again.
Had other dummy camers before but his one is the best for looking real.

I stuck this camera in my front window along with a 'Under Video Surveillance' sign to deter thieves from breaking in. The dark lens and blinking light is visible from the outside. The light is a little over the top but has lasted about a month so far on one set of batteries. Excellent for what it does.

So realistic the paranoid bitch next door called the police and told them i was spying on them. They said she went off about the blinking red lights. The jerks parking along the street no longer turn in my driveway, thinking i'm watching them. Didn't tell anyone i was putting them up (of course) and didn't use the stickers. Just make sure you mount them legally because that's the first thing the cops look at, even though they are fake. I even had to bring one down for the police to examine before they would believe me. Worth every penny.

Easy to install and looks like the real thing. A week after I installed these cameras, the whole neighborhood thinks I have a high tech video system. The funny thing is, I never said a thing to my neighbors. No more packages disappearing from the front porch.

Very realistic! I have the blinking light on even though "real" cameras don't have the blinking light. At least that's what people say. Definitely worth a try for only about $15! Buy a "these premises are under 24 hour surveillance" sign & put it in the front of your house & you're set!

they look real. i mounted them in the house in full vision of the door and large windows from outside

the only problem was the enclosed stickers.
they look fake and they fell off the windows within 2 hours of putting them up
so i had to mount them with tape from the inside

I live out in the country on solar power, so an actual security system would require more electricity than I can spare. This camera looks so authentic that I will be purchasing a couple more to cover all sides of my cabin.

Point is, don't use this ONLY. Use in combination with real cameras that look like it.

It saves money and thieves won't know what's real and what isn't.

Plus you can have the fake one in an obvious place and the REAL one in a place that out of a thief's sight.

That way, if they think they are sabotaging a camera discretely, another one is looking at them from the corner of their eye.
