Dummy Cam Install Done Right

I took some pics of maybe the most elaborate dummy cam install I have seen:

Install Recap: Dedicated, pressure treated 4x4 post, two signs, two outdoor dummy cams with blinking red LEDs, and a fake omnidirectional WiFi antenna. It was mounted in an outdoor gravel storage lot that was fenced on two sides and had several lamps.

Here's a closeup of the cameras, a $35 each dummy from Securitymaninc.com. The fake antenna looked like an old hacksaw blade:

It was obvious this was installed for these cameras. I did some mental math of the project cost here:

  • 4X4 yellow pine post: $10
  • Bag of Quickcrete: $3
  • 2 ea SM-3803 Cams: $70
  • 2 ea Fake Signs: $15
  • 1 ea Fake Antenna: $0
  • Install Labor, 3 hours @ $65/hr: $195

Total: ~$300

The person who installed this dummy setup did a good job, and they were not that far off from spending enough for a real setup! If I did not understand what I was looking at, I might actually be fooled by these dummy cams.
