Hidden Spy Cameras

Hidden spy cameras are extremely effective when you want to find out information on someone. Hidden spy cameras have several uses inside the home and office. At home, you can see if the nanny you hired is right for your family and respects your home and children when you are not there. At the office, use hidden spy cameras to catch employees stealing from you or wasting time on your dollar.
A hidden spy camera is nothing more than a camera mounted inside an inconspicuous object. Then the device can be connected to a VCR or DVR and record images that can be played back as needed. Wireless spy cams use a transmitter and receiver to send a signal to your choice of recording device.
As of December 2008, you can get hidden spy cameras that are capable of recording images with an SD card. All you have to do to view the images is take the card out and insert it into a card reader or your computer's SD slot. These devices are as easy to use as an everyday digital camera.
WHY USE A HIDDEN SPY CAMERA?
Many people do not realize that a hidden camera is something that most of us will need at some point in our lives. Everyday there are more and more situations where we need to be in a hundred places at the same time. We want to keep an eye on things at home to find out which child is taking the cookies before dinner or if the babysitter brings a friend. At work, you may need to know who keeps stealing all of the ballpoint pens and Post-It notes from the office supply room.
Everyone in this day and age leads such a busy and hectic life that things go unnoticed until the problems are obvious. You may not know that a car full of thugs have been turning around in your driveway every afternoon at two, until you come home after work one day to find your valuables missing and you home trashed. Realities like this can be avoided by simply installing a hidden camera and accessing the feed from your computer at work.
Hidden spy cameras are helpful to so many people in all walks of life, primarily due to the fact that hidden spy cameras can be disguised as any number of everyday items that no one will ever suspect.
Here are a few situations where a hidden spy camera would come in very handy:
- Is your child staying past their bedtime or using their computer when on restriction? A great way to find out is to slip a hidden spy camera into their alarm clock and keep an eye on their actions.
- Do you suspect your employees are leaving early or taking extra breaks? A camera hidden in the EXIT sign above the door may be just the thing you need to catch unproductive employees wasting your time and money.
- Is your nanny following your rules and taking proper care of your children? Is your spouse alone while you are working the night shift? Did the mail carrier attempt to deliver your package? Is the neighbor's dog getting in your trash? Motion activated hidden spy cameras can be placed throughout your home in order for you to find out what is going on when you are away. These cameras work best when hidden in items that would normally be seen around your home such as a wall clock, air freshener, stationary toys, smoke detectors or a cordless phone.
- Some baby monitors can be fashioned with a hidden spy camera, allowing you to monitor your home and children with sound. In the following US states you must have a person's consent to record speech: California, Nevada, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Florida, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
There are several reasons why you may need to use a hidden spy camera. If you want to use your camera at work, you may need legal permission to ensure no privacy rights are violated. However, you do not need such permission if you only use the camera after hours.
Hidden spy cameras should not be placed in bedrooms, bathrooms, dressing rooms or locker rooms. Use your hidden spy camera responsibly and you are on your way to becoming a super spy who can spy on and find out anything about anyone.
