Home Security Cameras Camouflaged


Functionality And Fashion Come Together To Protect Your Home

Some security systems like to advertise their presence with signs and audacious equipment that supposedly make burglars think twice before hitting a house. Others like to be a bit more discreet. Instead of going the intimidating, industrial route, Eleanor Trevisanutto of Parson Italian Design decided to wrap up your typical surveillance camera in a cute aluminum body. Unlike other sophisticated looking home security devices such as Viper, Trevisanutto offers these surveillance cameras in a series of animals. Aptly named, “Animals.”

Burglars Will Never Suspect A Squirrel

Although these cameras resemble precious woodland creatures, these designs are far from stealthy. Trevisanutto didn’t intend on hiding the surveillance camera from potential thieves. Rather, she protects your eyes from hideous security equipment. Parson offers surveillance cameras in the following animals:

  • Squirrel
  • Macaw
  • Seagull
  • Owl
  • Chameleon
  • Grasshopper

Tastefully done, Trevisanutto keeps the series minimalistic, cute, and practical. Each animal is made of colorful, sand-casted aluminum, and the design works to animate the creature more than to resemble it. None of these animals could be mistaken for a real one. Most will question why you have one of these Parson Animals in your tree, but few will realize that your Parson Owl comes equipped with a CCTV security camera.

The Latest Home Security Trend Is Having A Trendy Product

Home security technology has come a long way. Although companies continue to invest in service enhancement, design quality has been improving as well. Consider the success of Canary. Marketed as an all-in-one sleek, inconspicuous home security device, Canary achieved its IndieGoGo campaign goal of $100,000 in a matter of hours. Within four days, Canary had raised $550,000. Many suspect that Canary’s design quality played a pivotal role in securing that high of a demand. It all comes down to people liking pretty products.

Following close behind Canary’s success, other companies like Iris, Piper, and Smart Things strive to make its products as stylish.

A Building Versus A Home

Parson’s cute surveillance cameras remind homeowners that they don’t have to taint the beauty and intimacy of a home with cold, stainless-steel cameras. Adding a security system to your home changes its look and feel. In some cases, an ugly surveillance system can even devalue your home. So it’s important to have one that can’t be seen, or looks great.

One of the main issues with security equipment is that companies often trade functionality for design. In the grand scheme of things, you’ll find that an HD camera with zooming capabilities protects your home better than a grasshopper. But you shouldn’t have to trade the tasteful design of your home for safety. You deserve the best of both worlds. When putting together a home security system, try and preserve your home as much as possible. The last thing you want to do is to turn it into a maximum security prison.
