I have to agree with them not being much of a deterrent. We see so much of it on TV because there are just so many of them (cameras and crooks). I think a lot of people committing crimes in front of a camera just plain old don't give a crap. That's why they're breaking the law in the first place. Sure there are some that don't realize they're being recorded, but I think any criminal that really doesn't want to end up on camera just does the "crime from home" bit. Side note: I actually clicked on this to see who was correcting you, but it was you! I KNEW what you were saying!
