Yes, there is a story behind why I made this. If any of you read my Full-sized ROMP instructable, you'd know that my sister had a baby and now he's only 2 weeks old. But anyhow, you hear all over the news about how some people are stealing other peoples' babies in any way they can (Example: In Missouri, a woman opened the door to let another woman use her phone cause her "car was broke down". As soon as she opened the door, the other woman slashed her throat and took her newborn baby).
Well, a few days ago, my sister was in her house and taking care of my nephew. She then heard the front door shaking so she went to investigate. There was a man with a large box on her porch shaking the front door. So she opened the door thinking that this was the rocking chair she had ordered. The man asked her if the town he was in was ------ (I'm not telling you where she lives), she said yes. Then he asked her if the address he was at was ------- ---------, once again she said yes. Then the man just said, "Oh, I must be in the wrong town", and walked away. And that's not all. A couple of days after that, there were two men standing outside their back door, just looking at the house. Luckily my brother-in-law was home and asked them if he could help them. They replied quickly, "This is the Jones', right?" and my brother-in-law said no. So they also walked off.
I made these with magnets so that you can use any flat ferrous surface to stick it to. The portable Dummy Camera....Also remember to put up "Warning: Surveillance" signs, to help deter thieves.
I made this to help deter the crooks and I'm also giving them some other real cameras that I have.
