    Dummy Outdoor Dome Camera with switchable On/Off LED

    Dummy Security Cameras can be used to augment your existing security system by creating the impression that you have more camera coverage than is actually installed. They can also be used to temporarily replace faulty cameras in case spares are not available while repairs are being performed.

    This dummy camera is designed to look like a white, outdoor dome camera and includes a blinking red LED to indicate camera activity (when batteries are installed). The round base can be mounted on a vertical or horizontal surface with proper camera orientation.

    Requires the use of two AA batteries (not included) for LED activity.

    Note: In keeping with style of real security cameras this dummy camera does not have a switch to turn the "activity" LED on or off. The LED can be enabled by installing batteries and can be disabled by removing the batteries.

    How long do the batteries last if left "on" 24/7?
    New User U on Feb 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have this camera placed outside in the frigid cold and I would guess the batteries last about 1 month at most. In the warmer summer months I can get about 2.5 months of battery usage from it.

    Fooled everyone, contractors, friends, and family, but...........
    I really fooled everyone, I had them wave to the camera and I acted so proud of how I installed the security system myself, they all really fell for it, some telling me" I want to do this to my home, and nice job that's a really good idea." My problem is, "Monoprice" is written on the camera. I guess I didn't think it was that big of a deal from the picts on this site, but I think it is kinda weird to see this name on the camera, why would this fool anyone, but mine did. If you get these, buy a magic eraser which will take off the word monoprice as if it wasn't ever there. It does take a lot of scrubbing, but it will come off, or you could white it out but that may not look so good. I also tried to turn the camera so the "monoprice" name was facing my walls outside my home, so this kinda worked, but taking the name off entirely would be better.

    PROS: Looks real

    CONS: "Monoprice" is written on the camera.

    Quality fake
    Amazing quality fake dome. A close match to the real external domes. I have a business and this blended in very well to the real ones. Anyone looking to do wrong will shy away from the faker and right into my real cameras. Even fooled a few of the local police officers!

    PROS: Durable plastic, fully detailed, almost identical to a fully functional external dome. Excellent price. Housing also absorbs paint very well should you decide to paint to match the exterior color of your wall.

    CONS: None at all

    Dummy Dome Camera
    Easily set up and working. Worth every penny it cost...which wasn't very much.

    PROS: Coupled with my security system, this phoney camera fits right in and gives the illusion that the property has video surveilence. What could be more simple and secure?

    Looks real

    Don't use the blinking light...
    The real version of this camera doesn't flash a red light, this might be a giveaway that this is a fake. I suggest you don't use the red light. Great cam for the price.... Looks great on the side of my house.

    PROS: Great fake cam fooled even the fuzz. Neighbors think it's real... Looks really good up on the house. I had a cop tell my neighbor that it's one of the best cameras you could worth in the thousands, haha the jokes on them.

    CONS: Flashing red light.... Real cameras don't have a flashing red light, give away as a fake.

    Looks very real!
    Love seeing these on my home outside. This works great with my home security system.

    PROS: I was recently broken into. My boss suggested I install these around my outside. It worked! I had squatters and a bad situation in the vacant home next door, they left immediately once these were installed. I took the advice of not putting in the batteries also. When the cops came to check on the vacant home next door, they saw the cameras and believed that's why the squatters left. Totally worth putting these up!

    CONS: None at all. Just don't install batteries.

    Who is the Dummy Camera Now ?
    I put these up along side real ones so the bad guys have to guess which ones are fake and or real. I used the housing from the Dummy Dome Camera and inserted PTZ mini's in the unit. The bad guys thought I had put up ALL FAKE cameras and I have some of the best pictures and "Close Ups !" of them looking into the camouflaged cameras. THANK YOU MONOPRICE this Dummy was NOT a Dummy

    Looks high end to ward off would be criminals
    Very low price. I did not put in the batteries to have it blink. NO CAMERA blinks like that. Not a big deal at all. I mounted it up with my own screws. The screws that come with it are HORRIBLE!!! They strip just by breathing on it... Soft metal or ? Used my own screws. Again, not a big deal. I have them mounted on the front and sides of my house. Looks Amazing! When I come up to the house and see them on the sides... I feel SECURE and with my real home alarm it is a great compliment and looks serious. For the price... it is perfect. I would not want a big BLOCK style as for a home... it is kinda overkill and I feel more Fake ones look like that. I bought some white wire and cut off an amount and rant it to the camera to look WIRED... it works well and looks great. I think it is a great deterent... One thing. The sticker that says CCTV that it comes with... yellow sticker... it is okay but looks low end.

    Just my opinion on the sticker... put it up anyway.

    PROS: Size, Look, Price

    CONS: I didn't like the monoprice label on the outside... spun it around not to see it.

    Great addition to existing surveillance system
    I have real video cams at the crucial locations around my house, but got a couple of these to add a deterrence factor to other areas. I think the dome style is good for this, since the bad guys have no idea where the supposed lens in pointing. There are also no external parts (flimsy looking brackets, wires) that can come loose or detach, or identify it as a dummy, like there is for bullet-style dummy cams.
