You may find yourself in need of an extra pair of eyes (or ears) for various reasons. You can use a mini spy camera to watch your home for signs of someone breaking in or to catch neighbourhood activity that might prove useful in the event of an emergency. If you have a nanny or babysitter, and even if you have valuables locked away, you can place cameras in common areas where you feel the need to monitor movement with security spy cameras.
If you’re wondering about the legal repercussions of recording, laws in Australia stipulate that it’s illegal to have a secret camera recorder to film a babysitter, housekeeper or other contracted workers in private spaces like bathrooms or bedrooms. However, you are allowed to record in common areas of your own home such as the kitchen, lounge or playroom if your intent isn’t malicious (to keep safe and protect your children or property) and recordings aren’t shown to others unless action is taken (to give as evidence to relevant authorities such as police or to be used in court proceedings etc).
Tip: Always check the Privacy Act and the Surveillance Devices Act relevant to your area or consult legal advice.

What factors should I consider when buying a camera for spying?
There are a few key things you want to factor in when purchasing a camera for spy purposes.
The first is the resolution which means the quality of the footage, which is measured in pixels. The number of pixels will affect how much detail will be on display. The higher the resolution or pixel count, the better the quality. Having an HD spy camera might prove useful for scrutinising small details.
Then consider whether night vision is important depending on the use of your camera for spy purposes. You’ll be looking for things like infrared lights and image sensors in the description.
Another factor to consider for your camera in house is the power source. Does it need mains power for operating 24/7? It should be noted that a big advantage of wired spy cameras is their reliability. You don't need to worry about the battery draining or the Wifi signal dropping. Maybe you require your spy camera to be battery-operated for portability? A major benefit of wireless surveillance cameras is that they cannot be tampered with by cutting wires.
Memory capacity is a critical factor depending on whether your spy cam is an internet-connected device or relies on internal memory storage on an SD card. If you have cameras with an internet connection, you may not need to worry too much about this, but if you are using an SD card, keep in mind that this card is what will store all the footage you take. On some hidden cameras, you're able to view the surveillance footage as it's being recorded on your phone or computer. For others, the footage can be uploaded on a cloud-based storage service that you can access at any time. Many models also allow footage to be recorded and stored on an app rather than an SD card.
Motion detection is another factor to weigh up when you're looking for a camera for spy purposes. Cameras that record when motion is sensed means that you’ll save on both power and memory capacity as the camera will only record when there’s movement. It also saves you sitting through hours of no activity when you play back the footage.

Things to keep in mind when installing is to pick a spot that gives the camera a good line of sight to the area you want to record. If you are capturing audio, ensure that the camera isn’t mounted near anything too noisy.
