What are Spy Cameras? What do they do?
Spy cameras are hidden cameras that are used for covert surveillance, designed to record video and audio without the knowledge of the person being viewed or recorded at various viewing angles and distances. These cameras are usually disguised as or in everyday objects such as clocks, books, pens, power banks and more.
You might use spy cameras for home surveillance, monitoring employees, or even in law enforcement.
5 Relevant Situations for using a Spy Camera
- Monitoring a home or business to detect theft or vandalism.
- Investigating suspicious activity or behavior in public or private places.
- Keeping an eye on elderly or disabled family members in their homes.
- Recording evidence of wrongdoing or harassment in the workplace.
- Conducting surveillance on suspected criminals or terrorists.
How to Use Them
There are two general types of Spy Cameras: Online or Offline. Online spy cameras enable you to directly connect to the device for close-range viewing, and you can then connect the device to your wi-fi to enable remote viewing from anywhere. Offline spy cameras don’t use any apps or signals, instead using an inserted SD card to capture footage for later review via PC or Laptop.
Direct Connection is how you get started with a compatible spy camera, by turning on the device it begins transmitting a wireless signal for you to connect to and view.
Remote Viewing can be enabled when you directly connect to a spy camera and access the settings of the device. When paired to a 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi network, the device no longer relies on direct connection and is accessible from anywhere.
Motion Detection is an important feature if you want a spy camera that can notify you instantly when motion is detected by the device, or enable motion detection recording.
Offline Spy Cameras are ideal if you don’t have an internet connection, with on-device customisation or settings that can be configured via PC or Laptop prior to use
