I've noticed a couple of fake surveillance cameras around downtown . Anyone know what's up with those?

@thenomad I mean, I can't be 100% certain without getting closer, but it looks pretty fake to me.

First, there's no branding on it. It says "Security Camera". If you look at any real surveillance camera it has a brand name, or no markings at all.

The mount to the pole has screw holes, but they're not in use, it's just zip tied (at least the one in the first image, can't tell in the second one).

I'll try see if I can find more evidence for or against it being fake later today.
