Mini Spy Camera
When it comes to keeping an eye on things, our mini spy camera range at The Spy Store won’t let you down. Keep your eyes and ears open when you’re not around by installing hidden cameras so you don’t miss a thing.
From consumer-grade cameras to law enforcement–grade hidden cameras, we will be able to meet your surveillance needs no matter what your budget is. Our friendly team of experts will help you make the right choice for surveillance equipment, and all our mini spy camera products come with a 1-year warranty and 30-day risk-free guarantee.
There are many reasons why having an extra pair of eyes and ears can come in handy in your life. A mini spy camera can help keep an eye on your home and catch anyone trying to break in or catch any neighbourhood activities that might prove helpful if something happens. Inside your home, you can place cameras where you might want a second set of eyes. Keep in mind: in Australia, 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. In general, you can take recordings in the common areas of your own home (kitchen, lounge, play areas) as long as your intention is not malicious (to protect your children or property) and the recordings aren't shown to others unless required (for police use or to provide evidence in court).
Make sure to check the Privacy Act and the Surveillance Devices Act that apply to your area or seek legal advice before using your spy camera products.
We also see mini spy camera products purchased for the workplace to keep an eye on things and ensure both safety and security to personnel.
Another common reason people opt for a mini spy camera with audio and video is when it comes to their parents or loved ones in retirement homes and hospices – sometimes, even in their own homes with carers and support workers. Having a mini spy camera product discreetly installed in your loved one’s home could help you monitor any unwanted actions.
We offer a range of spy camera products from action spy cameras, camera for spy purposes, mini spy camera devices, and outdoor camera devices to recording devices, GPS device tracker and GPS for tracking vehicles, nanny cameras, and detection devices. When it comes to personal security, we are your one-stop shop for lifelong support, discreet billing, and local expertise.
How do mini spy cameras work?
Our mini spy camera range has a few different types of hidden cameras to buy depending on what you need. The hidden pinhole camera is a popular choice. At the same time, we also have video pen cameras, audio-only recorders, wireless and wired options, and if you’re looking for something even more discreet, a motion-activated Wi-Fi smoke detector camera.
A mini spy camera works firstly by being unnoticeable so you can capture any activity without people being aware you’re watching them.
Depending on the camera you choose, you install the hardware in the location you want to ensure that the line of sight is clear, and if it is a spy camera with audio, make sure there’s no obstruction to capturing clear sound.
With most mini spy cameras, you can wirelessly stream live footage with a small hidden camera, or record the footage to the device’s internal micro SD card. Meanwhile, having motion sensor cameras mean you’ll only catch the necessary footage instead of hours of no activity. Typically you can download software to your phone that will allow you to access the camera’s footage when you need it.
How to use a mini spy camera?
Using any of our mini spy camera products is easy. Most of our cameras are ready to use out of the box, with minimal assembly required. You can plug or charge the camera, connect it to a Wi-Fi signal, download and install the relevant app to your phone or computer, and away you go.
When it comes to how to use mini spy cameras, it’s all about what you need it for. This will help you determine how many cameras you need, what specifications of camera you want, and the best place to situate the camera to record the footage you’re after. Most of our products can be affixed to surfaces with ease or hidden inside an object.
Wherever you choose to situate the camera, you want it to have a clear line of vision to the common room or space you’re recording – so if it’s your kitchen area, setting it up on a shelf in a corner gives you a nice wide-angle vantage of the room and whatever happens in it. If you need to record audio as well, you might look to place it closer to where you think the subjects might be.
If you’re unsure of the best placement of your mini spy camera product, just ask our team – we’ve helped countless customers with their spyware needs.
What are the benefits of using a mini spy camera?
The benefit of using a mini spy camera comes down to being your eyes and ears when you’re not in a room. If someone ever does try to break into your home, placing an HD spy camera outside your house as well as inside near valuables can help you identify any offenders – but we hope you never need to.
