What is a Hidden Camera? What is a Spy Camera?

Imagine how your nanny treats your cute baby or loved elderly while you are away for work? 
To be frank, I can never trust any nanny can take good care of my loved ones since what they do is just a job which can hardly put inside all their patients and love.

A hidden camera or spy camera is a still or video camera used to record people without their knowledge. The term “hidden camera” is commonly used in TV shows, sometimes when subjects are unaware that they are being recorded, and usually lacking their knowledge and consent. The term “spy camera” is generally used when the subject would object to being recorded if they were aware of the camera's existence. In contrast, "security cameras" refer to cameras that are visible and/or accompanied by a warning notice of their presence.

The camera may be "hidden" because it is not visible to the subject being filmed, or is disguised as another object. Such a camera may not be visible to the subject, for example, because it is fitted with a long-focus lens and located beyond the view of the subject, or located, say, behind a two-way mirror. Hidden cameras can be built into commonly used objects such as television sets, smoke detectors, alarm clocks, motion detectors, ink pen caps, plants, and mobile phones. Hidden cameras may be used for household surveillance devices and may also be used commercially or industrially as spying. The proliferation and lower costs of video recording devices have led to an increase in the use of hidden cameras for legitimate surveillance need, as well as for entertainment and other purposes.

The use of hidden cameras raises personal privacy issues and there may be legal aspects to consider, depending on the jurisdiction in which use takes place.

Discreetly Monitor Your Property with a Hidden Camera
Hidden cameras are usually designed to look like regular household items, such as wall clocks, tissue boxes, or even plants, and can sit discreetly without calling attention to the fact that it is a hidden camera capturing footage of what happens in its field of view. Hidden cameras may also be designed to look like more industry-friendly objects as well, such as lighted exit signs or security lights, making it possible to enable undercover surveillance in nearly any setting, whether a home, office, or warehouse. For users who don’t find a form factor that suits their space, we also carry plain black box cameras that can be inserted into nearly any hollow object, turning it into an effective hidden camera for monitoring your space.

Common Uses for Hidden Cameras
Hidden cameras have a variety of uses, whether to allow homeowners to monitor their property and integrity of their in-house workers while they’re away, to enable business owners to keep tabs on who is coming and going at the office, or to ensure that existing security systems are not harboring any blind spots where activities may go unnoticed.

Hidden cameras are most commonly used in spaces where the user doesn’t want anyone to know they are being watched. This may be effective for office managers who suspect that their employees are rifling through their office when they are away, or parents who want to make sure that their nanny or housekeeper is doing their best work. No matter what your concern is, a hidden camera is a discreet way to watch what’s happening without raising suspicions.

Hidden cameras may also be used to effectively cover blind spots in existing security systems. For example, if your security cameras can see nearly every area in your retail store or warehouse, but there are dark corners where they cannot see, these areas become hotbeds for theft opportunity. Hidden cameras can be placed in these areas to help you catch dishonest employees or customers in the act of hiding merchandise for later retrieval and theft.

Hidden cameras may also come with a variety of features, including remote viewing capabilities, motion detection alerts, night vision, and more, to ensure that you never miss a beat of what happens on your property while you’re away.
