Motion Sensing Fake Security Camera Goes The Extra Mile

By Andrew Liszewski

Most fake security cameras are pretty easy to spot, and while I think this particular one is a bit too plastic-looking to fool anyone, it does have a couple of features that might actually scare off a potential thief. On the front of the camera, just below the lens, there’s a single red tally light that continually flashes making it seem as if the camera is actively recording, or at the least, is being remotely monitored. But it’s also got a built-in motion sensor with a 6 1/2 foot range that will trigger the camera to pan back and forth for 15 seconds anytime someone passes in front of it. Of course with an LED, a motor and a motion sensor the camera does require 3xAA batteries to operate, so you’ll want to make sure they don’t run out or your clever ruse will be ineffective.

You can order one from Chinavasion for about $15.

    I can vouch for this… I've had one outside my house for about 2 years now and it is still holding up to the elements!

    A Security Camera from Spyville is a great way to build or add on to an existing security system.

    Cool, the lens looks real which isn't the case on a lot of these things. The case looks a little cheapy though, but the price is right for sure. Most of them sell for 4 times as much.

    Remote Security Camera systems are capable of capturing motion while others will trigger an alarm of some kind.

    Great points, the more realistic the better. An option to help with the battery issue is to use solar powered cameras to virtually eliminate the need for battery replacement (outdoors of course :-) Here is an example of a solar powered fake security camera – http://www.security2020.net/sc2060-od-outdoor-f
