Covert Spy Cameras - Make Sure They Remain Covert
Covert spy cameras are very useful tools for preventing and solving crime, but they're not going to work if you don't hide them properly.
Suggested Hiding Places for Covert Spy Cameras
To help you get started, here are a number of hiding places you could use for your covert spy camera.
As this is one of the most frequently visited areas and the most exposed to outsiders, you'll have to be extra careful with your hiding places. If possible, place them above eye level so that they're less likely to be spotted.
Place them also behind other objects like shrubbery and paintings while making sure that there's only enough open space for the eye hole of the camera to capture footage and images clearly.
Place them near but not exactly at the back of refrigerators and electrical stoves. People rarely have any reason for their hands to venture into those areas, thus making it a safe hiding place for your covert spy cameras.
To be a bit more resourceful, consider cutting or drilling a hole into a box of pancake mix, a can of fresh fruit, or even a ceramic cup. Then place the camera inside and display the object on top of the refrigerator or cupboard.
Place them behind curtain rods or blinds. People rarely take notice of these places. If you have a bookshelf inside of your bedroom, you can also hide a camera on top of a particularly crowded shelf.
If there's enough space between the covers of your exhaust fan and the fan itself, consider placing your covert spy camera there. You can also place it near the shower rod if it's high enough.
How to Determine the Best Hiding Place for Covert Spy Cameras
In any case, here are a number of factors you should consider when choosing a hiding place for your covert spy camera.
Angle of View
Your location must get the best and, if possible, the most comprehensive view of the area. If not that then it must at least be positioned to capture images or footages of likely entry and exit areas for vandals, burglars, and other unwanted guests.
Secondly, covert spy cameras must remain inconspicuous. If it is designed to take the form of another object (e.g. pinhole cameras hidden in stuffed toys) then make sure that they won't look out of place wherever they may end up. For the example above, cameras inside stuffed toys will look best in your child's bedroom or displayed in living room glass cabinets.
