These cameras even have a fake solar cell on top to help them look more authentic.

Other parts to a home security system

In any home security camera system there are multiple components. Sure we all know and see home security cameras hanging off of walls, soffits and roofs, but that is just a part of the story, no matter if your system is a real working system or a fake home security camera system there are many ways to deter would be thieves.

What about other components that give any prospective burglar pause for thought? That could be many devices like the fake keypad above, or how about a simple timer that will turn on a lamp for an hour or so then turn it off for another hour and so on, anybody who is watching your house would probably be deterred if they see lights going on or off inside.

What about one or two well-placed motion detecting lights to scare away unwanted intruders, these are a very effective deterrent, one tip I might give here is to place the motion detectors in an area where they will not be constantly triggered by moving objects like cars or animals etc, putting them in secluded positions that still cover your main entry point is a good idea.

Fake TV? most people have never heard of fake TV but items like the one below are very effective deterrents, some of them are manually operated and others are left switched on and they have a light sensor that automatically turns them on at dusk for five or more hours, the lights that are seen from outside the house look just like there is a television running in the room that you place it especially if you have thin curtains so that a person cannot see into the room and notice no TV 🙂

All the signs are there

And that is just what you want a would be intruder to think, all the signs are showing me that there is somebody home in this house. From the fake security cameras, lamps on timers, entry door keypads to fake television lights flickering in some back room to motion detecting security lights around the perimeter, all these things will give any potential intruder pause for thought, but what about signs? I mean real fake or should it be fake real signs ? either way you get the idea.

Having signs like this in your yard is just a part of the arsenal you can employ to help deter would be burglars from picking on your home and moving onto somewhere else that appears to them to be a softer target, and the funny thing is that with all these items installed around your house you still have no real alarm or home security camera system.


Hybrid home security camera system

So, how about adding some real bite to your fake home security camera system?

How am I to do that Andrew, I hear you ask 🙂

Simple, with all the equipment listed above, like the fake cameras, the fake keypad, the fake television, to the fake signs in your yard and not forgetting the lamps on timers and the outdoor motion detecting lights how about adding a real wireless security camera? If you choose to add just one wireless security camera I would highly recommend that you get the best one that you can, by best I mean a camera that has decent image quality and good night vision, because you might only get one crack at capturing an intruders face especially at nighttime, so placement of the camera is also a concern if you only have the one camera.

If however you decide to go with a larger home security camera system (by larger I just mean more cameras) then things get a little easier in terms of capturing the face of the intruder because you have more chances of getting that shot to show the police if you are unfortunate enough to suffer a burglary or even just an attempted burglary. The camera above is a very good bet for starting with but it is also expandable so that sometime down the road you can add cameras to have a really capable home wireless security camera system


So there you have it, for around fifty or sixty bucks you can make even the most fool hardy burglar wary of tacking your house to extract his ill-gotten gains from you, and you never even had any real protection, it was all just an illusion or a perception. But, if you go with the hybrid option of mixing it up a little with at least one IP camera (a quick explanation of an IP camera is that it is wireless except for the power cord (although you can get battery operated) and it syncs with your home wireless router so that you can view it from anywhere in the world)

This home security camera system is a little more expensive that some but it has awesome features.
