Hidden Cameras

They’re everywhere.  Cameras of all sorts, hidden all over.  Even cities have been installing them at stop lights.  We’re watched everywhere by Hidden Cameras.

Now, even when you go into your home or office, you can find that you’re being spied upon.  They can look like Exit Signs or Motion Sensors  They can look like pens, watches and alarm clocks.  They’re literally everywhere.  Hidden Cameras might even be lurking in your bedroom and you might not even know it.  How scary is that?  Perhaps someone put it there to get some footage of you doing something you shouldn’t be.  Or, perhaps someone is just wanting to know what you’re doing, when no one is watching or just to ensure you’re NOT doing something bad.

Now, how about a motel room?  I can’t imagine how many hotels and motels I”ve checked into.  And, not once did I look for a camera that might be hidden.  But, its quite possible they were there.

Dummy Surveillance Cameras

I’m here to pass along helpful information when I know it.  And, one such piece of information is to pass along info about dummy surveillance cameras.  While they may not be for everyone, I think they are something that virtually every homeowner or business owner should consider.

I think dummy surveillance cameras are helpful for most because they are incredibly effective, very affordable and very easy to install.  These fake cameras are made by the same makers of the real outdoor security cameras.  So, these fakes look just like the real thing.  And, as such, a burglar is going to think your home is completely covered with surveillance cameras.  And, since the units don’t include the camera technology inside, they only cost like $15-20 each.  So, someone could buy 4 or 5 and still not break the bank.  Finally, since there’s no real technology involved here, the installer only has to drive a few screws and they’re up.  Literally, a few minutes is all it takes to install several.

Home Surveillance Camera and DVR

Whether you’re looking for a full blown home surveillance system or just a hidden nanny cam, essentially what you’re wanting is a camera and dvr.  I mean, that’s all these things basically boil down to.

You can go online and find full blown home surveillance systems with multiple cameras and a dvr.  These systems will come complete with everything you need, including cabling, mounting brackets and the whole nine yards.  A homeowner can usually install them within a few hours without any specialized training or tools.  Or, if you’re wanting to keep an eye on things indoors, but what to be covert about it, perhaps you want a hidden nanny cam.  These systems are comprised of an everyday object like a wall clock or boombox, and the manufacturer has installed a single camera and dvr inside of it.  They can generally be set up in a matter of minutes and the homeowner will then have an eye onto what’s going on inside the home when they’re not there.

Home Surveillance Systems

Saturday, July 2, 2011

I just took a phone call from a customer who had a question about a quad box for his home surveillance system.  It seem that he has an existing surveillance camera system and he needs a part for it.  But, the real reason I bring this up is that he says he has to get his system up and going again because people in the area of his Phoenix home are beginning to cause problems.

Its certainly a sign of the times.  With so many people unemployed or underemployed, people are having to find ways to pay their bills.  And, while I’m not advocating crime as being okay because of this, I have to admit, its understandable that these people have to do something.  But, what really bugs me is that part of the increase in crime, recently, still being tied to unemployment, is that so many people have excess time on their hands.  And, instead of doing something productive, some people are turning to crime just to fill their time.  Regardless of what’s happening around you and why, it’s apparent that we all need to at least consider home surveillance systems to increase the security around our property.

Hidden Nanny Cams

hidden nanny camsI’m continually blown away by all the different Hidden Nanny Cams coming onto the market.  If you’re needing one of these camera systems, you should be able to find something that would integrate easily into your setting.

For instance, I was checking out some hidden nanny cams this morning and there’s one that has always been one of the most popular, as its a wall clock camera.  These things easily integrate into common areas of the home and have  a great viewing angle.  But, one I found today was very very stylish.  It wasn’t just the average wall clock camera, it looked very nice and I thought that would surely integrate even more so into most people’s homes.  So, if you have a need to catch a cheating spouse, a thieving employee or potentially a bad nanny, you’ll be happy to know that the range of products continues to expand, making it easier to integrate a hidden camera into your home.

Boombox Camera

boombox cameraYou think your boyfriend is so sweet, don’t you?  He gave you a nice boombox that’s really a boombox camera for you to put in your bedroom.  Better watch out…..  I’m sure this sound kinda hokey, but it happens more than you might think.

That’s right.  A boombox camera, which is just one of many types of hidden nanny cams are bought every day.  And, while most are used for what they’re supposed to be used for, keeping an eye on the safety of  your children and home, many are not.  Many are used to spy on cheating spouses.  Many are used to keep an eye on thieving employees.  And, yes, many are used to get explicit video footage of people doing, well, doing what people do.  We’ll leave it at that.  So, if someone happens to give you a gift, you might just look it over carefully to ensure it is what you think it is.  Otherwise, you might just be on the internet in a way you probably don’t want.

Wall Clock Cameras

wall clock camerasWonder what your wife is doing when you’re not at home?  Wonder what your kids are doing when you’re not at home?  How about the Nanny; do you trust them?  You might want to check out Wall Clock Cameras.  That’s right, one of the most popular hidden nanny cams available.

These unique spy cameras known as wall clock cameras are pretty much what they sound like.  The manufacturer starts with an ordinary wall clock that works.  They install a camera, so very small that you can’t see it unless you know where to look.  On some models they add in a microphone and/or a dvr to record onto.  Then, the user installs them in the room they want to keep an eye on.  A quick test record to make sure all is within the record frame and leave.  Anyone in the area will be recorded so the user can know what’s going on when they’re not home.  Unless you know what you’re looking for, you probably will never know…

Fake Surveillance Cameras

If you’re like me and need to provide some level of security monitoring on your home or business, you probably would like to buy surveillance cameras or a complete system.  However, as financial times are tough, like me, you might not have a ton of money.  Fake Surveillance Cameras might just be the ticket.

You see, fake surveillance cameras look just like the real outdoor security cameras, as they’re made by the same makers.  They just leave out the camera technology.  So, these fake cameras only cost like $15-25.  So, you can pick up several for less than a hundred bucks and install them in a matter of minutes.  Since they don’t connect to a monitoring station or anything, the installation is a snap.  Drive a few screws and you’re done.  And, if a burglar comes by, or WHEN one comes by I should say, they’ll think you have a full blown security camera system and hopefully will just keep moving down the road.  Affordable.  Easy.  Effective.

Outdoor Security Cameras

Pick up any newspaper and you’ll see.  You’ll see why virtually everyone homeowner and business owner needs to have outdoor security cameras installed to protect their property.  It’s a shame, I know.  But, we have to face reality.

And, whether you install real Outdoor Security Cameras or Dummy Outdoor Security Cameras, you really SHOULD do something.  If your budget allows and you want to capture real video of what’s going on around your place, install real security cameras.  If your budget is tight or you just want to put something up as a deterrent, than fake surveillance cameras might be the choice for you.  But, unless you happen to office next door to an ADT office, you really need to do something.  Burglars are coming into all neighborhoods now as the economy continues to tank.  People are turning to crime as a means to feed their families and pay their mortgage.  It may not be right, but it is reality.

Dummy Surveillance Cameras

dummy surveillance camerasI’m  a fan of quality products that are so stupidly simply, but highly effective.  Dummy Surveillance Cameras are one such product that I hold in pretty high regards for its cost to reward ratio.  These things are affordable and highly effective.

Dummy Surveillance Cameras are fake cameras that look just like the real thing.  They look real because they’re made by the same companies who make the real cameras and they use many of the same parts.  So, you can’t tell the difference.  You can’t tell that there is no camera technology inside the casing….and neither can a criminal.  Dummy outdoor security cameras sell for $10-15 and you can find a few different models and styles to choose from.  They take minutes to install as they only require a couple of screws, then tucking in the fake cable.  You can put up six or eight of these units in a matter of minutes and for about a hundred bucks.  Now, that’s a great product.
