No one will know that this security camera isn't real. It looks like an expensive camera from a state-of-the-art surveillance system. It moves from side to side when anyone passes by and has a flashing red light that makes thieves and vandals flee. Installs quickly and easily with mounting hardware included. Uses 3 'AA' batteries (not included). 8 1/4" long.
I purchased these to put in the lobby of my business as some merchandise has been missing and I wanted to deter further theft. Unfortunately, the movement of the camera is very loud and there is no way to stop the movement and only use the red flashing light. Also, the housing is very cheap looking and at a close range (lobby area) it is obviously not real.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
