No matter which movie you have seen or book you have read,
whether it’s Arnold Schwarzenegger’s True Lies
or the book Nanny Diaries, spy cameras have been placed
in virtually anything you can imagine and can be created to
be as small as your thumb. The whole concept of a spy
camera is to do surveillance
undercover, without the target individual(s) ever knowing. Spy
cameras have been used as nanny cams where you can
see what type of service you are paying for and to make sure
there is no theft going on inside your home or to watch over
employees to make sure they are doing their job on the clock.
Spy cameras are perfect for home security
and to work alongside your home security system
as an alternative to the traditional security camera or CCTV
camera because they can be placed in small nooks and crannies
that some surveillance cameras
would otherwise not be able to reach. Also, spy cameras
are made now where they can “be” virtually anything
you want them to be, whether it’s a stuffed animal or
a radio clock or a pen. The possibilities are endless in what
you can purchase and so that gives the consumer more options
to place in every room or surrounding as needed without looking
suspicious or letting on to what they are trying to achieve.
Spy cameras also come as wireless cameras
so there really is no need to install any wires throughout your
home or corporate office. Again, figure out what you would need
from the camera you are trying to purchase, whether it’s
infrared, day and night camera with high-resolution color imaging,
a smaller sized spy camera or something that needs to have low
Here are a few spy cameras to consider when
looking into the market:
• Body Worn Cameras: These can be anything,
from button cams to pen cams to pager cams. The purpose of these
tiny spy cameras is to look like everyday items that you would
normally wear on you and to look inconspicuous.
• Wireless Nanny Cams: Perfect to place
somewhere in the child’s room or in the house to observe
that your children are being safe and that there is no theft
going on inside closed doors.
• Zoom, Pan and Tilt Cams: Perfect for
indoor and outdoor use to capture all angles, give you the option
of close ups with the look that is easy to disguise these spy
Clearly, the era of these spy cameras only being used in espionage
has ended. The technology is now available for us to use in
our homes everyday for our own security.
The small business owner also can now afford this technology
for surveillance or security to safeguard his or her company.
