This dummy security camera looks pretty realistic but it needs some simple modifications that should've been done by the manufacturer.

The brand name "UniquExceptional" is printed on the front of the security camera. If you google UniquExceptional you'll find that all they sell is dummy security cameras. I don't need my fake security camera advertising a fake security camera company. The good news, some 400 grit sandpaper will remove their name in a matter of seconds. It'll also leave a little dull spot on the housing but that's something I can live with.

The second issue is with the dome for the security camera. Dome security cameras, like this one, are a dome shape for a pretty simple reason; so you can't tell which way the camera is facing and therefore can't tell what area is under surveillance by the camera. The dome on this security camera is clear. It may look like it's blacked out in pictures because the camera inside follows the same dome shape in black plastic but the dome itself is clear. Inside the clear dome you can clearly make out the false camera lens. This leaves two problems, first, in a real dome security camera, you'd never be able to see a camera lens, and second, people that can see the lens would believe they know which area is being watched and may try to hide in the dead spots around your cameras. There's another quick fix for this one too. The dome is assembled with four small phillips head screws. Simply disassemble and hit the inside of the dome with a little black spray paint and you've got a very believable blacked out dome just like you'd see on a professional unit.

Finally, dome cameras would never have a red flashing light like a handheld video camera from the '90s. Of course, now that you've blacked out your dome no one would ever know even if you did bother to put batteries in the camera but, had the manufacturer blacked out the dome in the first place, they surely could have saved us a few dollars by not including the flashing light, or even the entire false lens piece of plastic all together.

But, once you've made these small modifications, you've got a pretty good looking dummy security camera.

I install real working cameras as a sideline. There's a lot of dummy cameras that wouldn't fool your ancient grandmother. These domes look exactly like a working Axis PTZ unit. For the price, it's well worth it.

I love this fake security camera! So easy to install and though it's not real, the results seem pretty real to me. Unless you tell somebody its "secret", nobody I think will really know unless it's physically dislodged and disassembled.

And having a white plastic housing, it's easy to keep clean. Looks just like those dome security cameras you see at the casinos and hotels, but a bit smaller. Used with signs and window stickers warning of security cameras on the premises, it sure does look convincing.

One of the neighborhood kids decided to open one of my Amazon packages on my door step. Installed this camera and the sticker in the window and the problem has stopped. Looks legit, the blinking light will get your attention and the CCTV sticker will do the rest.

I've mounted this in an unlighted long, narrow driveway leading to a small private parking lot & my apartment entrance above commercial property in the business district of a small walkable community. There are numerous restaurants, music venues (bars), movie theater and bowling alley in a 2-block area where my apartment is located. The camera has proven to be a very effective deterrent to loitering and other undesirable activity in this area.

The look is exactly like a camera. I have had several people comment on the new camera I installed, and said people better watch out. I do have 1 complaint. It takes batteries for the light to blink steady. The batteries died within 10 days twice. I do not plan on changing them again, as the batteries will quickly cost more than the camera. Overall I am pleased with what it is supposed to do, and that is look like a camera.

This camera does appear quite realistic. I put one under my boat house and one under my carport. Have not had them long enough to tell how battery life will be. I connected them to an electrical box with conduit running to it for more realism. I am satisfied with my selection.

I purchased three of these jewels to place on my shop, back door, and front of my house. Everyone that has seen the security lights think they are real. I recommend the item to anyone looking to let it be known you have security without the hefty price tag associated with real security cameras.

Looks very realistic both in size and overall appearance. Mounted it on a dock onto a box with a (fake) antenna on it and it looks like a real CCTV camera!
