As deterrant obviously.

There seem to be two models widely available with solar powered red light but judging which would look most realistic in the flesh is hard. Any opinions welcome.

Metal, square shape:

And how many real cameras do you see with a flashing LED? Pointless in my opinion, the second one looks better and if it were me i wouldn't worry about the LED.

Buy real one and place it at the level of your first floor floorboards. Drill a hole in the mortar course a couple of inches and stick some coax from the camera into the wall - it'll then look like it's wired to work.

30 or so one you can plug into your TV.
Not the greatest but it looks like one and works.
