Hidden Cameras - Catch Them Red Handed!

Apr 24, 2008
Hidden cameras can be used at any place, which requires secret monitoring. Hidden security cameras do not work as a deterrent device, as these cameras are hidden and others may not know that they are being watched through a camera. You can hide these security cameras anywhere like inside a book or a flower vase and even in a soft toy. Hidden cameras are very efficient in capturing vandalism. These cameras are also used to identify criminals.

Hidden cameras are useful in banks, offices, shops, countries, home, businesses etc. Some of the places where hidden cameras are used efficiently are as follows:

* Many companies use hidden cameras to monitor employees, especially if they are handling sensitive information.

* Countries that have possible threat of terrorists attack use these hidden cameras as prevention.

* Hidden cameras can be very helpful in home also. If both the parents are working, leaving a kid with a babysitter is not safe. Installing a hidden camera at home can be a good option to keep a watch on babysitters or nanny's.

* Hidden cameras are of great use in banks and lockers. As people keep valuables and money in lockers, they want extra security to be provided to them.

* In business, owners use hidden cameras to keep an eye on suspicious employees.

* Hidden cameras help in catching the criminal or the suspect red handed. Thieves usually know about the visible cameras and can escape them but may not know about the place of hidden camera and can be caught easily.

Wireless hidden cameras are very common. Wireless security cameras are very convenient to use and can be placed anywhere. These cameras are flexible and hence allow efficient monitoring. The advantage of hidden camera is it that saves you from the hassles of wires. Wireless hidden cameras are ready to use and require no installation. But the problem comes when constant monitoring is required, as wireless hidden camera works on battery power. These cameras consume lot of battery. Some cameras come with motion detection feature, which activates the camera only when some movement is spotted and hence saves the power. However, battery power can be sufficient, if the camera is accessed after every eight hours' gap.

There are some controversies regarding hidden camera. Use of hidden camera at the places like changing rooms, bath rooms, is illegal. Recording audio at work place is also considered to be illegal. The employer should know the legal rules and regulations regarding use of a these security cameras. As an employer, it is very important for you to inform your employees about what you are installing and why. Get it signed on a paper that they have been told about the hidden camera to avoid any future issues.

Hidden security cameras are efficient but very expensive also. Hidden cameras are good for large businesses, banks, or for the places which require secret supervision. Sometimes the price of the camera is more than the asset it is protecting. And hence installing a hidden camera at such a place will not be of much use. So decide carefully whether you really require a hidden camera at your work place.
