Dummy Wireless Brick Camera (Motorized) 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 wireless outdoor brick camera. The camera has a motor, which slowly swings it back and forth. This combines with the blinking red LED to indicate camera activity and further emulate a real security camera. The base is intended to be mounted on a vertical surface and allows for the correct camera orientation.
Requires the use of three AA batteries (not included) for motor and LED activity.
So I finally got some energizer batteries in it and they only lasted about a week. So consider the price of batteries before you go on about how cheap and cost effective this unit really is. It would be nice to turn off the motion to save battery. Its a decent feature but does not just swing to the motion detected. Instead it detects motion and swings back and forth till it does not detect motion. The motor is also not very quiet and annoyed me more than I thought it would.
The battery issue is a big deal to me. I dont want to end up paying that much for a full time solution. Might end up spending less in the long run to just get the real thing. Think that over per your application.
CONS: Battery life
Can not use rechargeable batteries
PROS: motion sensor, flashing LED.
CONS: None so far.
PROS: Looks realistic.
CONS: Red LED light only works when motion detector is activated, which only works when person is within close range.
PROS: It looks like a real outdoor video camera.
CONS: The MPT-1400A didn't work out-of-the box
Thank you for your review and my apologies for the condition that PID 8427 arrived in. Just to verify, was the packaging damaged at all when the item was first received? Also, can you send me pictures of the broken antenna? Even though the packing has been thrown out, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement as we cover this unit with a one year warranty. Obtaining the replacement would be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if you would like to proceed and thank you in advance!
