Hidden Spy Cameras For Security And Surveillance

Most people I know think that hidden spy cameras are only good as nanny cameras to catch a babysitter abusing a child. Nothing could be further for the truth. They are very effective tools for security and surveillance of your home or business.

Let me give you an example. Recently in San Francisco, a home in a well-to-do neighborhood was being plagued on a regular basis by juveniles who thought damaging private property was fun. It seems that once a week for a month these kids would come around and do damage to homes in a particular neighborhood. The police couldn’t do anything because there were no suspects, and they didn’t have the manpower to do a stakeout to catch them.

What the police suggested is that someone buy a hidden camera that could be used for catching these misbehaving kids. Two homeowners installed Spotlight Spy Cameras on their property and sure enough within a matter of 10 days, they had video evidence of not only who the kids were, but the license plate of the car they were driving and what they were doing-exactly the kind of evidence that leads to a prosecution in a criminal matter.

As you probably already know, spy cameras, hidden spy cameras or covert spy cameras as they are sometimes called, are most usually used to catch people doing things they shouldn’t be doing. And there’s plenty of that going on; everything from child abuse to elder abuse; from home security breaches by burglars to maybe one of the biggest uses of spy cameras-infidelity. Catching husbands cheating on wives or boyfriends cheating on their girlfriends or vice a versa is one of the biggest areas of a private investigator’s business.

Most commonly regular security cameras or surveillance cameras and systems are used to catch people damaging your property or breaking into your house. But there’s absolutely no reason why you cannot use a hidden spy camera or covert spy camera like this Stone Spy Camera. There is some question about the legality of using a hidden camera in certain circumstances, so check with your local law enforcement office before you use one.

The fact of the matter is that if you want to catch somebody doing something they shouldn’t be doing. It will provide you with the visual evidence that you will need in hard to prove cases of child or elder abuse.
