Can't beat for the money,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Security Outdoor Waterproof Fake/dummy Camera (Camera)
We received notice that there have been some break-in's in our neighborhood, so I ordered these as a deterrent. My guess is the typical smash-and-grab thieves have so many homes to choose from, anything that makes them think twice about your house will keep them moving on. These are cheap plastic but look just like metal, and the flashing red light makes them look completely legit.
I've read some reviews where people said the plastic 'wire' doesn't look real enough so they replaced with with coax. I think that's a waste of time. So much stuff is wireless anymore, you could probably install them without the wire; but the reality is if a thief knows what he's looking for and inspects them, he'll figure out they are fake anyway. I hung mine pretty high up, and faced two toward the street, so you can see the red light flash even if you are just driving by "casing" the place.
