Customer Testimonials

With this product being a bestseller on Amazon, there is a wide range of reviews to choose from, for example an ex police officer said ” The issue with many dummy cameras is that, they are very cheaply made, affecting the overall build quality and longevity. They also are built on the styling of a camera which is over 10 years old. One of the main issues with the blinking LED light and what many people believe is that, the blinking light will alert criminals not to commit a crime at your property. Because of the IR LED Lights on this camera, it works great and much better than those with a single blinking red LED Light.”
