How A Wall Clock Can Solve These Difficult Crimes

Here we are taking a look at several categories of crimes that can be solved by a wall clock. We know, you are saying a wall clock cannot solve a crime. You are right! But this is not just any ordinary wall clock. It is a wall clock spy camera or hidden spy camera as they are sometimes called. Several of these categories of crimes are impossible or nearly impossible to solve without any documentation or proof.

Elder abuse and child abuse are two such categories where caregivers are the perpetrators, and collecting evidence against them is very difficult if not impossible. A hidden spy camera can provide that evidence and it is strong enough to hold up in any court.

Here are several categories of crimes that can be solved by a hidden spy camera inside a wall clock.

Elder Abuse

The first category is elder abuse. In the 2010 census the number of people 65 and older was the greatest number ever recorded with 40.3 million or 13% of the total population. By the year 2050 that segment of the population will grow to 20% of the population, with folks 85 and older the fastest-growing segment.

Most of these folks end up in long term care facilities, nursing homes or in home healthcare. The industry surrounding care of our seniors is deeply flawed starting with a shortage of beds and qualified staff to care for the elderly.

It has been estimated by the National Center for Elder Abuse in recent studies that 7.6% to 10% of all participants experienced Elder Abuse in the prior year. There are several different types of elder abuse-not just physical abuse- which is the most visual.

Across the pond in England the is a health and social care watchdog group. They are in the process of considering using hidden cameras to help carry out inspections of care homes. Elder abuse is not unique to the United States but also exists around the world.

The value of a hidden camera was proven when a son spotted bruises on his father’s body. It was the only way that he could document elder abuse. He long suspected that his dad was being physically abused in a nursing home but could never prove it until he got a hidden camera.

Child Abuse

During fiscal year 2012 an estimated 3.4 million referrals involving 6.3 million children were made to child protective service agencies.

Child abuse is another category of crime that is very difficult to prove because many of the victims are too young to verbalize what happened to them.

An example of child abuse happened in Johannesburg, South Africa when Eric Kamanzi installed a hidden camera in his sitting room after coming home from work one day to find his small daughter limping and covered in bruises. He posted the resulting video on YouTube and created Nanny Camera Frenzy which tripled the demand for spy cameras by concerned parents whose children are cared for by nannies. The video showed the nanny shaking his 18-month-old baby.

Marital Infidelity

And talk about difficult to prove marital Infidelity is right up there at the top of the list. It is not a crime in the true sense. By its very nature infidelity is secretive. The exact numbers are nearly impossible to establish. But it has been estimated that between 30 and 60% of all married individuals in the United States will engage in infidelity at some point during their marriage. These numbers are likely on the conservative side, because nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.

Statistics show:

  • That men are more likely to cheat than women.
  • Infidelity in many cases never gets discovered.
  • Office romances are becoming more common.
  • As women become more financially independent because they are working, it gives them a sense of freedom to enter into relationships they might not otherwise ever begin.
  • Spouses spend more time with coworkers than with each other.

Home Burglary

A home burglary happens every 13 seconds in the United States. It is one of the easiest crimes to commit because homeowners make it so.

This story from NBC news in Washington is about two roommates who shared an apartment. The roommates were repeatedly victims of Home Burglary so they installed a hidden camera. Shortly after they did the video showed three suspects breaking in through the front door to steal computer gear, electronics and watches.

Employee Theft

For anyone who owns a retail business, you know first-hand that Employee Theft is a constant problem as shown in this YouTube video. We have always maintained that it is up to the business owners to put as many barriers as possible in the way of employees to prevent them from stealing. A hidden camera is certainly one of those barriers. It produces irrefutable evidence of a crime being committed that otherwise might go unsolved.

Undercover Stings

There is a rich tradition in law enforcement to use hidden cameras to gain evidence in difficult cases. There are many examples of these Undercover Stings like this one using unmarked cars and miniature hidden cameras in a drug bust. It is hard for the defendant to deny the evidence because he was shown on the video and it can be used in court.

As we said this is no ordinary wall clock. The wall clock that we are talking about is a hidden camera wall clock as shown above that allows you to stream live footage to any PC or mobile app without any IP setup using the quad receiver. It is a real working, attractive wall clock that has 62° viewing angle-enough to cover any room. This wall clock hidden camera will fit into any setting to help you solve crimes.
