While you should not totally immerse these dummy video cameras in a bucket of water, they will withstand operating under normal outdoor conditions. It is recommened to spray a little silicone or vaseline on the battery ends, to keep from regular dew and moisture from corroding the battery connections. You might also spray the top of the solar camera lens with silicone to ensure water repels off, instead of collecting and entering the unit itself, as you should do with any outdoor solar operated lights or equipment around you have installed in your yard.

Will The Red LED Light, Light The Area?

There is only one small red LED light on these fake cameras, so it will not light up the entire area. They are just bright enough to be seen from the road, to thwart of thieves, but not too bright as to be disturbing for you or your neighbors.

What Are The Bodies Of These Cameras Made Of?

The fake cameras are all made of plastic and painted to look realistic looking, especially from a distance. Hang them from your eaves, or in a corner of your porch, for a very lifelike looking security camera.
