Olympic Security & Communications Systems Does NOT Install Fake Camera's - YOU Do Not Want The Liability


Reasons Why You Should Not Buy or Use Fake Security Cameras

Here are top 10 reasons why YOU should not buy or use fake security cameras. Please note that fake security cameras, dummy security cameras, fake surveillance cameras, simulated security cameras, and decoy security cameras are the same thing.

1. Fake Security Cameras are Easily Identifiable
Burglars and thieves are much smarter than you might think. It only takes about 60 seconds for a burglar to break into your home or business. A knowledgeable or experienced criminal can easily identify a dummy camera because almost all the fake cameras feature a blinking light, the single-wire connection (missing wires) and the arbitrary movement of the lens.

When a burglar knows you have fake security cameras, your house becomes an obvious target, seriously.

2. Fake Surveillance Cameras Can’t Record or Catch Anything
All criminals are afraid of being caught “in the act”. A real surveillance camera can record for 24/7 or anytime you want, and it will catch whatever happens to your home or business. A fake surveillance camera is merely decoration. Fake security cameras won’t help to record anything, even if a thief is breaking into your yard and ready to invade into your house. This equates to wasted dollars.

3. No Remote Access with Dummy Security Cameras
One of the excellent features of real security cameras is that you can have remote access to your home. On your mobile device, you can obtain live views inside and outside your house wherever you are and whenever you want. Dummy security cameras offer you nothing. You won’t know who is in your home or business - if your children are back from school, did the kids wake up, what the dog is getting into, and whether your package arrives. Nothing, and no peace of mind.

4. Dummy Surveillance Cameras Never Push Alerts When Danger Occurs
What if someone breaks? Fake security cameras never inform you. You won’t know what happens and don’t know when it happened. However, a real surveillance camera can tell you, and show you all – it will push alerts to you, both notifications and emails when it detects motions and finds dangers. Therefore, you can take actions to deal with the events; like call 911, to increase safety and, reduce your loss.

5. Fake Security Cameras Create a False Sense of Security
It’s dangerous when someone takes undue advantage of fake security systems. You can’t stop one or some of your neighbors leaking out the fake camera information. When that happens, it can open up a window for crime in your area. News travels, it could be the neighbor's girlfriend's boyfriend's cousin or classmate - you don't, and won't know.

6. Dummy Security Cameras May Buy You a Lawsuit
Dummy security cameras can cause legal issues. No joking. Several home and business owners have been sued for using fake security cameras over the past years. They were said to have provided a “false sense of security”. Here is the case: An employee parks his cars and leaves his valuables intentionally within the company premises in the full view of the security camera. He returns to find that the car and the valuables have been stolen. When he asks to take a look at the video footage, his employer has nothing there because it’s a fake security camera. The employer has to battle a lawsuit.

7. Dummy Cameras Reveal Too Much
You may think you are clever to mix real and dummy cameras together in your security system. It’s not, actually. When the dummy cameras are put together with the real ones, they are more obviously identified as the real “fake” ones. Those who know, know.

8. Fake Cameras Can’t Prove Anything
Unfortunately, when the crook commits a crime, the fake cameras can never provide any proof. There is no face to identify, and no solid evidence to help the police catch the bad guy. Your valuables are gone.

9. Real Security Cameras are Not That Expensive
Many of you prefer the fake security cameras because they are inexpensive. Actually, there are reasonable, functional security cameras that really can save you a lot of real headaches.
