Now you can deter robbery and theft and vandalism without the high cost of a real security camera. When placed in your home or business even the most sophisticated criminals will think the premise is guarded by a high-tech surveillance system and go in search of an easier target. In fact this is an actual surveillance camera that has been modified into a dummy or fake security camera. This unit does contain a flashing light. The camera features authentic video cable and a fully adjustable plastic mounting bracket that will let you install the camera quickly and easily using the included stainless steel screws. The dimensions (including the rain shield and bracket) are 10 inches x 6 inches x 7 inches. The camera requires 2 AA batteries that are not included.
