During recession times, customers demand excellent quality at good prices. While security is a serious issue that every property owner and retailer needs to take seriously, there is no reason to break the bank balance to feel safe

Not only is CCTV surveillance a pricey way to keep criminals on their toes, it involves such issues as monitoring and storing the video footage as well as potentially expensive installation fees.
For this reason, leading UK online security provider Crime Prevention Products is advising customers that there is a more affordable alternative which will effectively deter would-be criminals.
Dummy security cameras can be bought for a fraction of the cost of live surveillance systems, yet reputable models look exactly like the genuine article – they come complete with the same casing and even have a power light indicating they are in operation.
Crime Prevention Products also supply a range of different dummy cameras to suit various property needs – from the most popular UK flashing LED model for exteriors to the dome variety that appears to cover a 360 degree angle for interior spaces.
The company also provides the all important Warning signs which tell potential thieves they are being monitored by CCTV surveillance, and these markers come with a guarantee of being UV proof for five years so they will not fade from sun exposure.
Furthermore, the online security provider offers high end dummy cameras for extremely reasonable prices, generally ranging from as little as around £10 to £65. The cost for an internal dummy camera with an authentic housing varies from approximately £20 to £35, while those for external use (these need to be weatherproof and rust resistant) tend to be priced between £30 and £100. At the top end of this price tag are replicas of large CCTV cameras measuring nearly 40cm in length, which are suited to car parks or industrial locations.
CEO of Crime Prevention Products, Terry Rattee, commented: “During recession times, customers demand excellent quality at good prices. While security is a serious issue that every property owner and retailer needs to take seriously, there is no reason to break the bank balance to feel safe – our dummy security cameras are an excellent alternative to live CCTV since they’re highly affordable but at the same time anyone would be hard pressed to distinguish them from the real thing.”
He added: “We talk to our customers to understand exactly what their security needs are – some high risk properties would benefit from a combination of real CCTV and dummy cameras to give them wider coverage while keeping within budget, whereas smaller properties might only need a single dummy camera to effectively ensure criminals think twice about any suspicious activity on the premises.”
