    What legitimate reason could you have to want to test that?

    Can't unless you could sense leakage from circuitry.

    Commit a very bad crime/offense in front of it, and see if you get arrested?

    Agree. :D That would be a foolproof test.

    Spray the lens with paint like in the movies, and see if the Guards come rushing out! ;)

    Cut the wires to the camera, cover the lens of the camera, smash the camera off the wall...

    They are the best counter-measures you can do.

    Why fiddle around with much less effective counter-measures?
