Covert spy cameras or hidden security cameras, as they are sometimes called, have zoomed in popularity in the last two decades. They used to be cumbersome, expensive, difficult to operate and a technological mess. They are easier to use than ever before. Because they are so easy-to-use and there are so many of them in the marketplace the prices have dropped which adds to their popularity.\nCovert spy cameras are products you see around the home or office on a daily basis. They are so common no one thinks twice about them. Inside is a tiny camera that transmits images to a monitor. Most new models have built-in DVR’s that makes recording a snap.\nAs you probably know, spy cameras are used to catch people that you would otherwise trust, doing things that they shouldn’t be doing.
