What do you do when you want a sense of security but don’t want to shell out big bucks? Print your own dummy security camera with a 3D printer, obviously.
That’s precisely what Dr. Özkal Özsoy did. Dr. Özkal Özsoy is an electronics engineer, product design consultant, and inventor based in Istanbul, Turkey. With his knowledge, experience, research, and 3D printer, he set out to build his own dummy security camera.
He began by researching different security cameras and which design would best deter criminals and intruders from targeting his apartment. Once he decided on a model, he scaled it down so that all 3D printers on the market could print it, but this move also saved materials.
Because of its hollow interior, it’s possible to house an actual wireless security camera within it. The dummy camera is divided into four different parts for easy assembly. He also included four holes for 3mm LEDS, and used a wide angle, LED collimator as the lens. These parts make the dummy camera much more believable.
Security cameras, whether dummy or real, can be a great way to avoid becoming a target. Most criminals will avoid security cameras, as they can produce evidence that may identify them.
