The Purpose of Replica Cameras
Replica Pan Tilt & Zoom (PTZ) camera
In today's world, it's almost impossible to feel safe about your business without having some kind of security on the premise. Of course, the best solution is a CCTV Security Camera System, but sometimes our budgets don’t allow for the amount of security we really want. This can be a little discouraging but not to worry there is a cost-effective solution that can deter theft and/or vandalism. It is very similar to what the Police did and still do in some parts, they have Red Light cameras situated around the state however not all have cameras inside, but you would never know it.
The answer is Replica Security Cameras. A series of Replica Security Cameras can have the same effect that a normal surveillance system will have on thieves and vandals at a fraction of the cost. A Replica camera is designed to look like a real security camera but it does not actually function as a security camera. If you need to record and store footage, then this may not be a solution for you as the Replica cameras really perform no surveillance abilities. They just sit there making thieves aware of their presence and making them think they are being watched. An intruder might see the camera and think twice about stealing or even entering your store. These fake cameras have very low maintenance and can be installed easily without the assistance of a professional CCTV Security Camera Installer. A Replica security camera system can be a great temporary solution for your business if you are eventually looking to upgrade to a real security system. You should choose your replica camera with care as many decoy cameras do not look real. This is why all our cameras use housing identical to those used in the CCTV industry.
Having a fake security camera system in place would be much more beneficial than having nothing. In fact, you could even set up a combination of real security cameras and Replica cameras. This could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Putting the real cameras in key locations and the Replica ones in obvious places where it is not as important to have actual footage. It is important that you make the presence of your cameras known. Place the Replica ones in plain sight and use signage to let intruders know that there are security cameras on the premise (even if they are fake!). A good way to make intruders feel like they are being watched is to do what many superstores, such as Woolworths and Target, do. What do we see when we first enter one of these stores? We see ourselves walking into the store. This immediately gives intruders the feeling of being watched, they did, after all, just see themselves on camera.
This PTZ Replica camera is made to look like a PTZ or ‘Pan Tilt Zoom’ camera and will help reduce
theft and vandalism. It’s real look and red flashing light make it a perfect camera to put outdoors and make any criminal believe the area is guarded by a surveillance camera.
