Fake Security Cameras Won’t Fool Anyone

There is one thing wrong with many of the so-called security camera systems in NZ. They’re not real. They’re actually fake camera systems that might look the part….from a distance. But when a professional criminal gets close enough, they know pretty much straight away that they’re dealing with a dummy camera and they’ll take every advantage. Only the real deal will deter them.

Fake security cameras are sold on the premise that your average burglar is stupid enough to be sucked in by them. Fact is, most of them are not. An experienced burglar can easily tell the difference between what is real, and what isn’t. For example, a decoy camera might have a blinking light which is now a rarity on real and modern cameras. Or, the lens moves randomly, or wires are missing. Whatever it is, someone with designs on your house or business will always notice that the security cameras are little more than toys.  

Of course, once they do notice that the system is fake, there’s little to stop them from breaking in. They’ll figure (usually correctly) that every other component of the security system has been done just as cheaply, if at all. It’s a piece of cake for them from that point, and nothing more than an invitation to help themselves. And once they are inside, they know only too well that those decoy cameras won’t be recording their movements. That’s another thing about fake cameras;  there won’t be any surveillance footage to share with law enforcement. Because of this, it’s highly unlikely that the perpetrator will ever get caught. Only a real security camera can capture footage that shows someone in the act of committing a crime.

A real security system which includes a genuine camera gives you peace of mind knowing that your property is actually being monitored. Fake security cameras on the other hand will leave you with a nagging sense of doubt because you know your property is not as safe and secure as it could be. For all these reasons, we ask you to invest in security cameras that work. You might save money on a cheap prop, but you could lose so much more in the long run.
