Great deal. You can then find a LED equivalent bulb, replace the halogen and got yourself a fairly decent foodlight.

You can get a LED floodlight for about the same price as one of them, and the led will be mounted on the aluminium case of the light so it will get rid of the heat better, so the led will last longer.


You could buy a very cheap mains voltage AC-LED and bolt it in the back of the case with some thermal paste, but it's not worth the effort.

These would be more useful as an outdoor case to mount a cheap IP camera module in, a thief might not even realise it is a cctv camera rather than a light.



Here's a few cheap led floodlights (from £2.76 each ) cpc.farnell.com/c/e…9mm

When they see a camera they are more likely to pull their hoody down to hide their face and turn their head away from the camera while they wack it with a crowbar to take it out in my experience.


And don't expect a vandal proof / resistant cctv camera to fare any better, the camera in question was a bulky metal commercial vandal resistant one one with a very thick dome. This thief wasn't deterred by a burglar alarm going off either, which I believe auto-dials a police number (this was a pub), I think he had a very good idea how long the police would take to arrive.

The only semi-worthwhile footage we got was on some internal cctv cameras without IR leds that he didn't notice.


By all means put a cheap camera with IR leds on up high and hope it gets noticed and acts as some sort of deterrent (which it probably won't) and at best will get a shot of the top of his head, but if you want cctv cameras to do the job they are intended for, put a good CCTV camera lower down and as well hidden as possible so you get a picture of their face.

I mean your story is as anecdotal as my experiences of the opposite where I've caught people sneaking around the driveway spotting the camera and walking off. There was another incident where someone broke in through the conservatory, noticed the camera I had inside pointed at the door and walked back out. Still left me with a £400 repair bill but at least they didn't take anything of value.

The chances of the police even catching anyone with CCTV footage is also very low. Home burglaries just don't rate highly enough for their time these days. So even if you did get anything of value from a covert camera the odds of catching them after the fact is pretty much nil.

Like they say, a lock is only a deterrent for a criminal that isn't determined enough. I suspect that whoever broke into your pub wasn't acting on impulse but had planned it days before.

They clearly wont!

You could buy a very cheap LED one that would be at least as bright, yet save better than 90% of the running costs.

That's still not a good argument against concealing some cameras. Even if the police don't have the time, you could still post footage on facebook, someone might ID the culprit, and if you get really good footage you might even be able to sell a clip to a cctv TV show.

Police didn't catch this thief even with the DNA evidence they obtained, and as he was unknown to the police, they would have liked some good images. Oh, and he did come back a day or two later and tried to break in again, I think it might have been twice more in fact.

A CCTV sign is likely to be as an effective deterrent as a camera, as would a old or non functional CCTV camera which you can pick up cheaply, so why bother with cctv at-all.

Yes, maybe they're short on cash at this moment in time, and need a light. And they'll be able to afford the running costs which they'll have to pay later...?
Why am I even bothering in this hypothetical stuff?
