Smaller that they appear, and fragile
I purchased these when I purchased my "fake" security cameras, and did not like them as much. They smaller than the typical home security signs you see in the yards like ADT. They are also very fragile to plan if your soil is hard like mine (AZ). So, I am using for now, but if they break I wouldn't replace them, I probable would get an upgraded version of them or another product that much stronger and bigger.
If you find this tip helpful, please indicate below so others can benefits as well.

Cheaply made. But it will do for now.
The octagonal part of this sign is just a piece of thick plastic. The black stake is made of plastic that is thin and bends easily. If your soil is hard, you will have difficulty pushing the stake into the ground because it bends so easily. I plan to screw the black stake to a wooden stake which should make it much stronger (I shouldn't have to be doing this). This sign is over-priced for the quality that you get, or should I say the "lack" of quality that you get.

Buy a few!
Excellent deterrent. Just put out a large amount of yard decor and put a couple of these in the yard with a fake camera and they all work great. Highly recommend.

Great value, keeps the loitering (and presumably burglars) at bay.
Professional, no one is any wiser. I live across from 7-eleven and people used to sit around my porch area waiting for the bus or just hanging out. Once this sign was put in no one loiters in front anymore. After a year of service I took the yard sign out of the ground to do a fence repair and snapped the plastic shaft pushing it back into the hard ground. Easy to repair with some gorilla glue and a piece of scrap metal (PCI slot cover) and a little black spray paint. The stickers on my door are fading a little bit, but not too noticeably, well worth the money.

Simple and clear, but...
The sign itself is well designed. I have it installed in my front yard for over two months and it appears that the sun and the rain does't have much negative impact on its color. But, the stickers are starting to fade quite a bit, especially the ones exposed to the sun most of the day.
4 years of usage additional info:
4 years later, the sign is starting to fade out to the point where I will need to replace it. The stickers exposed to the sun faded out completely in about a year+. The stickers not exposed to sun or rain, lasted about 3 years.

Great sign. Use a different sign than the security system you're using. Some high-tech thieves can crack the security system if they know what you're using. So don't use the same company sign as what you have installed.

Stickers don't stay on! And they fade, as well. You'll replace within 1 month.
I try to never give 1 star ratings, but this product was soooo shoddy. The sign post is flimsy, very, very weak. And the stickers faded from the summer sun in a matter of weeks, along with the fact that the edges came right off.
I really wish I didn't buy this and waste my money.

Eh, I could make a sturdier sign & did
Very flimsy, and not easily planted in the ground, had to dig, and the upright could easily be broken by a strong wind. I just didn't think it was worth it overall. Description, accessories, photograph, website presentation, and what arrived are the same-size, shape, color, and it matched my expectations. The product(s) arrived on time, as described by BTA-MALL & manufacturer, it was shipped without issue, arrived within prescribed estimates, the packaging was undamaged, and the product itself was unmolested and made with quality materials.

The post broke when I tried to put it in soft sand. The stickers fell off the window in about a month due to sun.

Great Deterrent, Better Price!
Website looks great. Sign is good, but post is flimsy. I plan to reinforce. Stickers come with it. I'm happy with it.
