Hidden Cameras

The Types Of Hidden Cameras
Along with installing a new security system, many homeowners have chosen to install hidden cameras as an added protection for their homes. As technology has developed and adjustments have been made, these cameras have become smaller, easier to use and install, and even less expensive for the homeowner. You can’t put a price tag on the importance of keeping your home and family safe, and no expense should be spared when you are looking for ways to secure your home. Whether your neighborhood is rundown and full of crime, or the picture perfect street, every home can benefit from using these valuable tools to deter crime.

Where To Hide Your Camera
With the small body and easy installation of these cameras, you can basically hide them anywhere. The size of electronics is reduced every day, making these cameras versatile and flexible for your security needs. Hide your cameras behind a book, between the speakers for your TV, or anywhere that allows them to capture the entire room on camera. When you purchase your hidden cam, discuss the best places to install the cameras with your security professional.

Cameras That Transmit Video
Because these cameras must transmit video over the air, they are used less frequently as new technology develops and makes it easier for cameras to record on their own. With cameras that transmit video, the camera must often be within range of the transmitter, which is usually about one hundred yards. Anything farther than this, and the camera may not be able to receive a signal. These cameras often rely on batteries for power, making them more expensive over time to run in your home and your security system. These cameras can also be found with a detector for wireless video cameras, although you aren’t likely to have many of those in your home.

Wired Cameras
With these cameras, a wire is used to send video from the camera to the transmitter. Power is also sent to the camera through a wire. At the end of the wire, there is typically a screen to view the video, or some sort of recording device to record it. These cameras are typically the more permanent option, and require some sort of wiring during installation. It is more difficult to hide these cameras, because you must hide the wire that leads to them in order to prevent someone from finding them.

Cameras That Store Video
These are the newest development in cameras for your home, and are by far the superior choice over the others, although all are safe options for your home. These cameras can be built into a device, or simply look like little black boxes that could be placed anywhere in your home. Because these cameras don’t require wiring or the ability to transmit video, they can be placed virtually anywhere in your home to ensure that they are hidden.

Increase Your Security
Although one may be the better option for you, installing any camera in your home can help to greatly increase your security, and decrease your chances of becoming a victim or a statistic. Not only will you keep your home safe from crime, but you can also keep the baby-sitters and your children in line by letting them know you are always watching them.
