The use of the smart USB charger as a tool for safeguarding your surroundings is an example of such trends, and today we'll be looking at a few tips on how you can benefit in using these smart device for your surveillance purposes.

The smart USB charger camera does look like any USB electronic charger device that has power adapter that can generate the required 5 volts DC – a standard for most Universal Serial Bus (USB), usually sold in the market with Smartphones. Just plug in the disguised charger camera to a power socket and it will start working.

Now, what makes this piece of gadget useful for your surveillance is that; the device is been modified to include certain electronic function such as motion sensors, a hidden spy camera lens and other features that is required for safeguarding or monitoring your room, offices and business environments; just about anywhere you place it, provided it is plugged into a wall socket. Another good thing about the USB adapter camera is its high storage capability, also it has the functional ability of loop recording, such that it overwrites the previous file you’ve stored in your hidden camera.

How To Use The USB Smart Charger Camera

The USB charger can be plugged at any given area, either outdoor or indoor to detect motion and record clips to a Micro SD card in-built into the camera. The device does not have any access to an external storage and hence requires you to retrieve the SD card anytime you want to view what you’ve recorded.

If you want to make use of this camera for security purpose, you have to conceal the area where the LED light flashes whenever it senses motion, cover the area with black tape or ink to avoid blowing your cover.

 

 

Using The USB Smart Charger As A Keylogger

Covertly, the USB charger camera can feature as a keylogger, having the capability to sniff on wireless keyboards. This device can turn out to be a great spy asset for a nosy boss or company owner. When these charger adapters are plugged into a socket close to computer systems, it decrypts and log all keystrokes entered into a computer, and then transmits all information to a folder in the SD card that is in-built to the camera. One big threat about this disguised spy camera is its passive appearance; no one will know you have a keylogger in them, let alone a memory card that stores discrete information.

The Use Of The Smart USB Charger For Securing Your Room

The use of these devices can be implemented for securing your house especially for keeping tabs on an infidel spouse. You can also secure your hotel room when you’re not around, since most hotels will require that you drop keys. In a scenario where a staff of an hotel is tempted to check if you have any valuable belongings, a USB charger should be stealth enough for covert recording, so that no one knows you’re recording any activity. In this scenario, it is very easy to mount by plugging it to a wall socket that faces adjacent where you placed your valuables, when anyone enters your hotel room, it will start recording due to motion detection sensed by the spy camera. One good thing about the stealth nature of the camera is that; whenever an intruder removes the charger from the wall to inspect it, it will stop to work immediately and saves your footage directly to the SD card in the camera. Once you’ve painted the LED light area to cover the blinking from motion detection, this camera is a sure way to record covertly

Already, we’ve known where the big market for these spy camera device will serve. The USB smart charger is definitely going to be useful for nosy employers, suspicious spouse, government spies and the likes.

The US Navy has one of the most advanced technologies in the World today, and that includes spy tech and surveillance.Without doubt, if you know much about security and surveillance, you’ll know that the continuous use of spy equipment by the armed forces has brought a significant impact and rise in the use of spy cameras and surveillance globally.

It is assumed that so many people don’t know about some of these secret spying techniques orchestrated by the military for the purpose of the safety of human lives and property. Since it is important to be knowledgeable about these spy devices, let’s talk about them here.

The Cellular Interceptor

The military has in its arsenals; a new spy technology that locates people via their mobile phones. The device normally efficiently across a wide range of denser population, which means it is easier to come to the conclusion that these covert form of spy technology is created mainly for mass surveillance, since it rarely targets any individual in particular.

However, the military has recently backed the use of these technologies, informing the public that it is only used for monitoring criminal activities and identifying terrorist by tapping into conversations and SMS messages shared.

SOSUS – US Navy Secret Underwater Spy Technology

Let me tell you the truth, when foreign spies do set their eyes on America’s spy tech inventions, it is very rare to find them looking for secret bunkers buried under ground, these days; its either they are looking up into the sky or sailing on a voyage into the seas. Yes; the sea, that’s where you’ll find them the most. Notwithstanding, till date, the US is still dominant in undersea battle space.

For decades, the Russians think they are prowling under the surface of the oceans undetected, not aware that these underwater spy techs do follow their every move. The antisubmarine patrol the US is embarking on right now with the use of spy camera vices is so massive so that even if a nuclear war should happen, even the Soviets would not stand a chance in these Waters.

After successive use of the SOSUS (Sound Surveillance System) technology, the Americans have developed its underwater surveillance beyond Sonar systems which could only cover distances of few thousand yards. The SOSUS technology uses acoustic spy signals that could detect underwater ships and movements from a thousand mile, beating the high rate of water wave interference.

There are still a lot to these new spy technologies used by the military today, in fact, among all sectors of National Security, the military seems not to be tiresome about being keen on their espionage discovery and inventions.

Stingray –A Counter Attack Spy Weapon For The Military

The use of stingray as a spy equipment by armed forces is no longer a new thing but it’s still been used by various state military base around the world. Stingray has often proved its worth by serving as a prototype combat protection system, helping to guard against any enemy’s optical spy devices. What Stingray does is that; it detects and jams any enemy’sspy system before any damage is done from a proposed attack. If you ever had the chance to carefully look closely on the body of a military fighting vehicle, you may probably see it for yourself being mounted on those armored military vehicles. Don’t get it wrong, these are not missiles, not a machine gun, they just act as a piece of spy tech that helps counter multiple aerial and ground weapons.

The Military Nano Spy Drone

The infrared Motion sensored drones used by the military currently seem to be a cool gadget, provides it does not spy on the public. The Nano Spy drone is a typical kind of helicopter that’s smaller than most drones. It has a built-in spy camera for detecting the location and activity of the enemy commonly used by US armed forces. However, these drones are very expensive, but its significant benefit for the military makes it a common buy, why not, since it does save lives. Thanks to these drones, the military can now handle deadly missions without the need for sending a battalion of soldiers, air forces or spies to an actual distressed area.

No doubt, these drones can vastly increase the protection of citizens as well. In bomb investigation, military drones can effectively detectand defuse bombs, thereby helping armed officers in avoiding areas prone to hazards and packed with explosive devices. The drones can take pictures from its hidden camera lens, taking pictures of suspected images which are later screened by bomb analyst to ascertain if captured images from dangerous war zones are not explosive devices.

Every businessperson or company owner today wants to keep tabs and view footage of live streaming activities happening in their office space remotely through their smart devices at any given time or place. However, the important goal of installing hidden cameras for a work place is centered on reducing theft and burglary. Not having a security camera to keep tabs on what’s happening in your office space is dangerous and can lead todevastating consequences in the future. Another big reason to have cameras installed in a workplace is to enable employees improve on their productive levels and for the safety of lives.

Having known the importance of security cameras for workplace, it is therefore important to discuss some key terms related to office surveillance.

Difference Between DVR And NVR

The term DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder. It uses an MPX (Megapixel over coaxed cable) signal to stream video from the security cameras. A DVR is an analog system using coaxed cabling and connectors. Some DVR can handle resolution of 4K, 2K and the usual 10ADP. Most DVR are compatible with older analog cameras having lower resolution from 300 to 900 TV lines, they can also support analog 720P and 960H resolution cameras.

NVR stands for Network Video Recorder. The camera sends video and audio signal to the NVR, which consequently sends digital signal down the standard CAT5 or CAT6 Ethernet connection cable.

So in essence, DVR uses coaxed cable and NVR uses Ethernet cabling. Some cable distances of DVR can extend up to 300ft for audio, video and powering having a distance video coverage of up to maximum 2000 ft. NVR systems supports links of up to 800ft per camera for video coverage with a 300ft cable extension for audio, video and power cabling.

NVR uses digital IP cameras and the compliance with the internet protocol allows for greater flexibility in conversing with the network, whether large or small. These IP cameras are connected using standard RG45 Ethernet connector that not only transfer the signals, but also supports power to the camera; this also called Power over Ethernet (POE). Currently, there are new technologies that require only a single cabling for wiring that serves for power, audio and video at the same time.

Both the NVR and DVR has a role to play in surveillance security systems especially when installing hidden cameras for offices and workplace, it is just a matter of picking the system that works best for you. Also take note that; not every video recorder works with every camera, DVRs usually with analog cameras, while NVRs perfectly works with IP cameras and may also work with analog cameras to an extent.

You Need A Design (Floor Plan) For Effective Camera Installment

A design for your camera installation looks like a traditional site map that helps to place and find good camera positions, field of view, helps with camera coverage planning, camera zones; which is optimal camera resolutionsand many more functions. This application helps you to see realistic scenarios and shows you the best areas to place your security cameras without the help of a professional. In addition, floor plans helps business owners to reduce budgets wasted on over estimation of number of cameras and materials needed for a complete camera installation in a work place.

Laws On Workplace Surveillance

Now it is noted globally that about 50% of employees now use security cameras in their workplace to monitor what is going and to prevent theft as well. However, kindly note that as a business owner; you have to come up with legitimate reasons to need to record video or audio footage, even if you’re given the right to use these cameras. In addition, be careful not to breach the laws behind installing them or in other words implicate the privacy rights of your employees.

The law on office surveillance varies from Country to Country, State to State, Local Councils to Councils. However, even if the state or Country you belong to hasn’t pass the laws on workplace security camera installation, it is ideal for you to avoid using hidden cameras in places like rest rooms or changing rooms in an office space. Hence, the best thing to do before installing your security camera is to first consult your local council for its jurisdictions on workplace surveillance.

Know The Significant Differences Between Indoor And Outdoor Cameras

There are some key points you need to consider in regards to Outdoor cameras rather than just been aware of its ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Outdoor cameras should be durable and should have a housing to protect it from thieves stealing them. A dome camera is a better choice for outdoor cameras since they are usually mounted outside. In the other hand, Indoor cameras are much smaller and they don’t need to have waterproof qualities. In addition, indoor cameras can be in any form, you can decide to install CCTV cameras, or make use of discrete hidden camera for your networked camera installations.

   If you are someone who does something on a regular basis then you will understand the basis for doing that thing. There are criteria for doing everything and these criteria will guide your course of action while you are doing that thing. In other words, you expect and/or are expected to meet up to certain requirements whenever you want to do that thing. A car needs to meet certain expectations before it will be termed a car. It must have four wheels, a working engine, at least two doors, at least two seats, exhaust pipe, windshield and so on. Features like a  hard roof, car dash camera, rear camera for car, working air conditioning system are additional features , not expectations.

Our focus for today will be about what you should expect from a good motion detection camera. This is a very important discussion especially for those considering getting a motion detection camera. Before you talk about what you should expect, you should consider what a motion detection camera does. This will enable you to prune your expectations in line with what is achievable. There are a lot of myths surrounding certain things. Believing in them may cloud your judgment. Some people also have expectations based on what they saw in a fictional movie. This article will help you with what you should expect from a good motion detection camera. It will do this by outlining what a good motion detection camera does.

Enables you to activate and deactivate it

I do not want to imagine that there is a motion detention camera that lacks this feature. If it lacks this feature, then there is no use for it. A good motion camera should be one you must be able to activate and deactivate. In other words, you should be able to turn it on and off. It is an added advantage when you can do this remotely without having to touch the camera itself.

Enables you to adjust its sensitivity

This is very important before you begin to creep people out and freak yourself out as well. This is also another important feature your motion detection camera should have. You should be able to make a number of necessary adjustments. The sensitivity will need to work in a quiet neighborhood will be different from the one it will need to work in a busy environment.

Informs you of the presence of someone at the door

This is important if you want to use it to secure the entrance of your house. Technology is evolving so you should not settle for less. A good motion detection camera should be able to notify when someone is within a certain distance from your door. It should not be until the person rings your doorbell before you detect. With an intelligent doorbell, your motion detection camera can cause the doorbell to ring before the person rings it.

Informs you when restricted areas are breached

Your doorbell should not and is not the only place you should secure. There are other areas of your house that need equal attention as well. With a good motion detection camera, you will be notified when someone breaches your security perimeter.

Informs you when someone is somewhere at the wrong time

A motion detection camera is a smart camera. It is a very intelligent piece of technology that can work independently. All you need to do is set the parameter you want it to work with. This brings me to the point of activation and deactivation. Once you have activated your motion detection camera, it should notify you that someone is where he or she should not be. This is different from a breach in security. A breach in security is usually external like your neighbor's kids coming to your backyard to pick their ball which crossed the fence. Someone being at the wrong place is usually internal like your kids running into the kitchen when you are out of the house at that moment. This is the right place to be but at the wrong time as they may end up in accidents.

Takes pictures in the occurrence of the above cases and sending you real-time notifications

This is the crown jewel of any motion detection camera. If it does not have these two features, then you are forgiven if you do not buy it. It does not matter what it can do but it does not send you real-time notifications then it is not good enough. With real-time notifications, you will be able to ascertain the time at which that incident occurred. It should also take pictures when it detects motion for the sake of records.

For you to be able to receive notifications when you have to connect it to your mobile device. You should also enable it to send popup and push notifications. Whether by mails or any other means, do not block notifications from your motion detection camera. What is the essence of real-time notification when you do not receive it in real time? Here are the things you should expect from a good motion detection camera.

   The issue of security is one that is very important. A threat to security is sometimes more than a threat to just security. It usually precedes to a bigger threat. As a result of this, people tend to take significant and sometimes drastic measures towards combating security threats. They sometimes end up going beyond necessary in a bid to ensure security. Imagine someone walking about with a recording pen clipped to his breast pocket. You will not feel comfortable engaging that person in a conversation. This brings me to my next line of discussion. There is a very thin and not too clear line between ensuring security and invading people's privacy.

Sometimes we do not have an idea about how much our actions affect others. The motion activated hidden cameras installed in your backyard may capture an awkward picture. The picture may be one showing your neighbor closing her blinds half dressed. This instance like a host of other is very debatable as we cannot draw a clear line as to who is at fault. This debate is also applicable to the workplace. It is no news that most corporate firms install cameras at strategic places for the sake of security. There is still a question as to which places should have cameras and which places should not have. We are yet to tackle that one and the issue of hidden cameras is already grabbing the spotlight. Ask an admin staff and he or she will give you a million and one reasons why it ensures safety. Ask the average worker the same question and he or she will give you a million reasons why it invades his or her privacy. The idea of an argument is to reach an agreeable conclusion. The focus of this article is to bring out the truth about hidden cameras installation at workplaces. Hopefully, you can learn from it and apply this information to other areas such as the school and even your home.

They should not be used alone

The idea is to discourage workers from engaging in reputation damaging acts not to catch them in the act. It is not advisable to use hidden cameras alone. Doing this will make you look like you are more interested in catching workers in the act than discouraging them from doing it. This does not mean you should place your hidden camera alongside your regular surveillance technology. You can use it to augment for your regular surveillance by placing them at the blind spots of your usual surveillance or using them as another level of surveillance on its own.

They are limited to specific areas as regular cameras

The fact that your workers cannot see them does not mean that you can put them everywhere. Just like regular cameras, hidden cameras are limited to places of installation. You cannot place them inside a restroom no matter the situation. The best you can do is place them in such a way that they capture who or what goes into and out of that restroom. You can place them in the reception, waiting area, offices and so on. The thought of hidden cameras creep people already, do not push it to the extreme.

 

Not everyone should know about their positions

The question of "who should know if there are hidden cameras?" may be up for debate. The question of "who should know about its position?" is not questionable. Human beings are very good and can be good at doing some things that are not too good as well. If everybody knows about the position of your hidden cameras else they cease to be hidden. Even if you have to reveal their location, it should be to departmental heads so that you will be able to know who to put your searchlights on when there is a security breach. You can tell your workers that you have security cameras that ate keeping watch over them. You should also reassure them that it will protect them and will not invade their privacy.

They are subject to state laws

This one is not debatable and you very much have no say over it. You go against it and you risk a lawsuit. To be honest, the law is very harsh when it comes to the use of hidden cameras. It will save you from a lot of trouble, to know what the law states about the use of hidden cameras in your region. Do not joke with this aspect in terms of knowledge and implementation. Some of the instances stated in this writeup may even be against the law in some states or countries.

Security is very important as there will not be growth and development without it. Privacy is equally important as people tend to consider issues like this when they are past that stage of security as a source of motivation. In the workplace, you must be diplomatic about it to ensure your workers give their optimal efforts.

      Insurance is a very important form of security. As human beings, we will usually do our best to ensure things go the best possible way for us. We may sometimes do the unusual to ensure that. Despite these efforts, we do not always have the assurance that things will go as planned. An expert in project management will tell you that it is important to make provisions for unplanned eventualities or risks. There are many ways to manage this risk but I will not delve deeper into that as it is not our bone of contention in this writeup. The point is that we should always have a contingency plan or a backup plan. The idea of installing the best dash cams or a dual dash cam is not to stop what is coming. It cannot stop an accident or car theft. It can, however help you get your car back after it has been stolen. In the case of an accident, it can help identify who is at fault or what genuinely caused the accident.

There are many other instances where we need a backup plan. It may not actually be because of the fact that we want to have something to fight back in the case of an eventuality. Sometimes, we may decide to keep a record for the sake of referencing or evaluation. Not every security or insurance measure is taken because you want something awful to happen. Sometimes it is good for you to keep records for the sake of referencing or evaluation. An example can be the use of a watch camera during an interview. A lot of people may find this creepy but it does not change the fact that it is efficient and not just effective. Unlike a camera placed at a specific position, you can move your hand to get full coverage of what is happening. The blind spot of this type of camera is the one you want to have at that moment. It is also good for getting a view of facial expressions at various times. Before I exhaust the essence of a watch camera during an interview, permit me to enlighten you on how you can use watch cameras during interviews.

Understand its features

This is not something you should start considering after you have gotten the watch. This is something you should consider before you even purchase the watch. You need to know if it has night vision if it is water resistant and so on. This way, you will be able to know when and where to use it. If it is something you intend to wear, a water-resistant watch may come in handy. If it is something you intend to place on a particular spot for use then its water resistance may not necessarily be a "must have" requirement. You should also know if it needs an external memory or has its own inbuilt memory.

Know where the lens is located

Now we are on track on how to use the watch after you have gotten it. Believe it or not, you will definitely goof if you do not identify where the lens is located on or in the watch. Do not just assume that it is located on the timer itself because that is a general rule for watch cameras. Where exactly is the lens located? Is it located at the top close to the "12" icon or at the bottom close to the "6" icon? With knowledge, you will able to effectively use it. You are not looking through the camera to see exactly what is in its view. So do yourself some good and identify where exactly the camera is located. This way you will reduce the incidents of taking random and useless pictures. You will also increase your chances of getting a spot on images or videos.

Know the way the controls work

The idea of using a subtle camera like a watch camera is to avoid making it obvious that you are keeping digital records of that interview. You should know which button does what and where it is located on the wristwatch. If you do not know this, you will not be able to quickly get to work and start making records. You may even fumble with your wristwatch and the person you are interview may even suspect that something is fishy. Before you start using it, ensure you know all about the controls on your wristwatch such that you can even use it in your sleep.

Ensure it is in optimal shape

How will you react or feel like if your watch gave a "battery low or short on storage" warning halfway through an interview? Sometimes, you may not even know this till later on when you check it to see what you have recorded. This is the point where you begin to admit that he who fails to plan plans to fail. Before you start using it, ensure its storage is empty, its battery is well charged and it is good to go. Skip any of this part and you may be missing an important footage goodbye. Do not gamble with this tip as you may be playing with something with serious implications.

There are tons of watch cameras on the market. You can get them from spy tech shops or even regular stores. They vary in prices as well as features. The best way to start is by picking that which is best for you. From there, you can start talking about how to use it.

   Charity they say begins at home. Charity implies a lot of things. It may be an expression of love, an act of sharing, learning, respect, security and a host of other things. During the course of this article, we will be talking about issues relating to security. Security is a very important aspect of our lives no matter how we put it. Some individuals take it to the level of installing various hidden spy cams like clock spy cams or spy camera with the audio or even an invisible camera to ensure security. People vary greatly as regards measures they are willing to take to ensure security.

The home is one of the places where our actions affect others. Hence, it is important we consider its implications before we take them. Despite the fact that security is paramount, it is important you take a security measure that does not offend members of your home. Regular cameras are good for keeping surveillance. They help keep an eye on what is happening and that is where it ends. They can only give you evidence to work on but not stop a threat. Motion cameras, on the other hand, are a step higher. They are cameras that do not only keep watch but inform you when there is something unusual happening within its line of sight.

To keep an eye when you are not around

This is one of the essences of having a surveillance system in your home. Motion cameras, however, go a step further in ensuring security. As its name implies, it detects motion and not just functions as a camera. The regular camera records but motion cameras record with intelligence. Based on how you set its sensitivity, motion cameras will send warnings when it detects motion in your house. This can come in handy in a lot of situations, some of which are stated below.

To help keep kids away from danger

This works both ways, by keeping your kids from endangering themselves and by keeping your kids away from danger. Depending on the ages of your kids, certain areas may be prone to accidents. Not every child should have access to the kitchen as well as some kitchen equipment. This is because they may end up putting themselves in harm's way by doing so. The kitchen is not the only regular part of the house that can harm your children. With the help of motion activated hidden camera, you will be able to detect movement in those areas and attend to the incident before it becomes an accident. While your kids may be well behaved, your neighborhood may not be such. A good motion camera can inform you about the presence of someone at your door before he or she rings the bell. It can also inform you of any unwanted guest either human or animal trying to come in through your windows as well.

To help detect a security breach

You do not have to wait till the threat is at your door before you dispel it. You can play motion cameras outdoors as well. This way, you get to detect movement from a distance and act quickly to it. It is not every situation that is a threat and motion cameras cannot differentiate which is good or which is bad. Sometimes it may be your neighbor's children coming to your backyard to pick their ball that crossed the fence. But in case it is something that needs your attention, detecting it from afar will give you adequate time to plan your reaction.

To help monitor kids

The problem is not always external as your own children can sometimes be your challenge. Instead of having to lose sleep because of them, sit back and allow your motion camera to get to work. You do not have to stay up late because you are suspecting that your son is planning to sneak out to attend a party you do not approve of. All you need to do is activate the motion cam before going to sleep and it will notify you when it detects any movement.

Keeping you updated of happenings in your home

Most motion cameras usually come with push and real-time notifications. This is actually beside the fact that they keep records of events as they happen. Some motion cameras that come with WiFi feature will even send you footages of any of the above-mentioned scenarios. This way, you will be abreast with what is happening in your house even when you are not around. You will not have to worry about what is going on as your motion camera will give you a regular update of that.

The greatest challenge to motion cameras is the issue of false alert or alarm. This may be the case of sending you a notification when a squirrel runs past its line of sight or a ball of snow falls down. Motion camera manufacturers have taken notable steps to minimize their recurrence. They now manufacture motion cameras that work with face detection and face recognition. You on your own part can reduce its sensitivity so it does not capture a large object very far away or a very tiny object close to it. You can also select motion detection zones for the camera to work with. This way, your camera will only notify you when it detects significant movement in these areas.

The use of Walkie-talkie apps just like we see in so many nanny cam with audio do work like the real devices, such that you can listen to all the activity on your chosen channel and then press the ‘Speak button’ when it’s your turn to talk, but in such cases, you’ll need not to talk since you are making use of them as a spy gadget. These apps do require Wi-Fi or data connections and due to the heavily compressed audio they use very little data. As a result they can even work on an ancient 2G connection, should you find yourself in a place where there’s poor network connectivity for transmission.

If you want a more kind of modern audio spying that listen to phone surroundings, the iKeyMonitor is your best bet at its listening amazing feature makes it different from other audio spy apps. Parents tend to be more concerned about their children’s speeches and the gossip employees in the company are currently communicating among themselves since CCTV surveillance cameras can only capture their gestures and posture or actions. Other useful apps you can make use of for your audio surveillance include the Zello PTT walkie-talkie, intercom app, Voxer Walkie-talkie messenger; all these apps make you feel like you have a kind of weird radio on your mobile though, if not configured properly.

Night Vision Spy Apps

Night vision spy apps enables you to do things like adding color, change brightness and add other special effects on a photo or video. Some of the Night vision apps helps to see clear images in the night by turning your phone screen color to red, which is easily seen clearly in dark environment while others helps you to take snap shots and record video footage at the lowest source of light without any additional artificial lighting or editing. Some of the night vision apps would provide you with viewing options such as; different color amplifying mode, color saturation picker and so on.

Other apps like the Night Vision Camera Joke, which is meant only for entertainment purpose can be used at night with a phone camera to see everything in detail at night. Some issues faced with Night vision spy apps is that; they tend to be unstable at times and the problem of using them may even get worse when you try to use the front camera of your phone. Some of the apps ranking in the night vision function include the Night Vision camera pro, Snooperscope, Night mode video camera and the Night Capture video camera app.


Multifunctional Mobile Spy Camera Apps

You may be thinking why these apps are said to be multi-functional; they do almost everything you can ever think of when it comes to spy apps. However, the backside is that; being a jack of all trade, they may not perform 100% perfectly in all they do, but to an extent, it’s worth trying them out. They boast of doing things like recording phone call conversations, tracking phone locations, view text messages, monitor peoples internet activity and what’s going on social media applications like Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Viber, Skype and many more. They can even perform the functions of a Night vision spy camera.

Some of the known Spy apps we have seen in this category are not so many, so a few of the apps the can perform multifunctional functions include apps like the Spyhuman and Snoopza; both apps are very powerful and leaves you with a positive experience. The Snoopza for example has all the features that help you to keep an eye on your partner, monitor the work of your employees, its camera is invisible such that people will never notice when you are taking pictures.

One unique feature of Snoopza is that; when a person you are spying unlocks the screen of their Smartphone, the app immediately takes a photo of the person with the aid of the front camera so that you can see who is using the device. This app has been so useful in catching thief’s in possession of other people’s smart phones since they have the app already running in them. The most interesting part is that there is no sign on the screen that shows any form of alarm or a flashlight, it works completely like a covert camera. Another interesting part is that, you can try the app free; its free version does allow you to try so many features at your disposal. Almost every Smartphone user should find a reason to use Snoopza in my opinion.

Mobile Apps That Work In Disguise

Using these disguise apps does brings a lot of benefits, some can allow you text for free depending on the country you live in though. Most of these apps don’t give out your real number like the Line2 app that gives you unlimited messaging credits and 5000 free munities of call time when you subscribe to a plan, and the good thing is that; it’s even compatible with all devices you ever come across, ranging from Windows, Mac, Androids, Apple device, Amazon fire and so on.

Other nice apps in this category are the Hushed app, Sneaky cam, Trackview spy camera, and Burner app. The Sneaky Cam for example, allows you to appear as if you’re working on something else different on your Android device camera, just tap any part of the screen and you’ll begin recording, and in most scenarios – the backdrop image may be disguised as a music player or even a browser.

Discrete Photo Capturing Apps

This is one of the most common app when it comes to Spy cams usage on mobile phones. When you install most of these apps, they can take snap shots of photos without making any shutter sound or revealing any flashlight visible. A more discrete example is in the case of an app called ‘Secret Spy camera’, which captures images covertly by clicking on the volume key button, and it does take a photo automatically in spanned time intervals that is programmable, but the app has to detect faces. One of the best apps we’ve seen so far when it comes to secret photo spying, is the FlexiSPY app which allows you to take up to two photos at the same time, with both the front and back camera. Once you have FlexiSPY on your mobile device, the pictures captured is automatically uploaded to a secured online portal so that you can view later at your own convenience – this feature is unique to FlexiSPY, such that you rarely find it on any other kind of mobile spy app.

These days, children complain so much about their nannies, and parents always want to know why. This may bring us to asking; what can parents do to make sure their properties and loved ones are safe when they’ve gone out of their houses. How do they know if they can trust their nannies or babysitters they hired to look after their families?

Finding and hiring a nanny to take care of your family can be a stressful undertaking, and leaving a stranger alone to look after your loved ones for crying out loud; most wouldn’t take likely. Using a nanny-hidden camera is an excellent way to gain peace of mind and to make sure everything goes smoothly with the new person in the house.

First of all what’s a nanny or hidden spy cam? They are video/audio cameras that are typically hidden so that it allows you to have that confidence that your loved ones are safe while you are away. It is usually hidden away inside of every household objects as alarm clocks, smoke detectors, teddy bears and etcetera.

One key consideration when using a motion activated hidden camera for the safety of your kids or old parents is to consider whether you want the camera to be hidden or visible; this can be a tough decision as both options have its own unique advantage. But today, we will be focusing on using a hidden nanny camera to your worthwhile advantage.

 A visible camera gives you the chance to be open with anyone you bring on as a nanny to let know that you’re watching from the start. Since many people consider their nanny to be part of the family, they prefer an open approach that avoids any feeling of deception that could come from hidden nanny cams. Nonetheless, even with the application of this open approach, it is still considerable and advisable to have a hidden camera placed in some strategic place, because you never know what plans a nanny may have when those visible cameras are out of reach in capturing some specific angles of viewing. In addition, visible spy cameras may get hacked or even malfunction, and at those perilous times; anything can happen, since it’s an opportunity to caretakers or babysitters to be naughty.

From professional experience, many experts have come to the conclusion that visible cameras are plainly for the purpose of maintaining a good behavior or a kind of monitoring system that strongly influences how a person in your home or workplace behave and hence not particularly for the purpose of safety. This is so because if they know that a camera is present, they will be much less likely to do anything inappropriate. A hidden camera in the other hand will show you what people do when they feel no one is watching, so while may not be as good as being deterrent to people, if anything is going on, it will help catch the person in the act with the help of push notifications and alarms that goes with motion detection technology.

When using a hidden camera, placement is a very important first consideration. If you want the camera hidden, think about where you want the camera to be placed, and whether the object used as a disguise will blend in there. For instance, if the unit is going to be placed in a small child’s room, a digital alarm clock may not make much sense, but a hidden camera inside a teddy bear will be perfect for that setting. There are also more universal cameras that are hidden in an AC adapter that will work in almost every environment. Another question you have to ask yourself is; what features you need to get the most out of your hidden cameras.

For child safety, if you know you’ll be recording at night or in a low light environment, you will definitely want a camera with night vision. Also, are you willing to regularly retrieve the camera's memory card to review your video footage? If you are like most people, your answer will be No! Therefore, you’ll want to take a look at Wi-Fi hidden cameras that allows you to view footage in real time from a Smartphone, tablet or PC. Typically these Wi-Fi cameras do send push notifications, which means; if the cameras sense motion in a room, it will notify you immediately with a pop-up or beep message on your phone.

Location is another factor in choosing a hidden nanny cam that is right for you. For example, if you plan to place the hidden camera in a location far from the power outlet, you should purchase a camera with long battery life. The motion activation is another important feature for a nanny camera that would be kept in one place for a very long time. Motion activation allows the camera to only record senses of motion in a room when no one is in the room, it won’t record any un-important video which tends to save you from reviewing countless hours of video footage and thus extends the cameras battery life. In addition, it is important to consider the resolution. The higher the video resolution, the more details you’ll be able to see especially from a far distance, and we all know to capture details clearly on your camera is one of the most important factors of installing hidden cameras for child care and safety purpose.

Some Examples Where Hidden Cameras Has Been Proofed To Be Worthy For Childcare

Let us look at some

  • Hidden cameras had helped parents to monitor the actions and behaviors of nannies/nurses. An example of terrible behavior is evidence of footage showing a nanny peeing in a sink.
  • Helps notify you, if your house is prone to a disaster such as fire outbreak from smoke detectors and so on, alarming you to the current event so you can call your little kids to attention
  • Hidden cameras can call you to attention when your child is about indulging into a carefree and dreadful activity at midnight hours, if you care to set it for motion detection.
  • Helps notify you when your baby is about breaching an area in your household that’s dangerous for little children. Examples are swimming pool areas, fireplace and so on.
  • Some people think they need to monitor their kids from unforeseen forces during the night, why not? Since ghosts cannot escape being caught in a camera.
  • Helps you prove your case in court about your child’s safety from an intruder or a devious nanny or friend.

   One of the common worthwhile needs for nanny cams with audio which may be hidden and installed close to a child’s crib is that; it serves as a two way kind of walkie-talkie voice communication that helps to keep the babies happy when hearing voices of their parents.

 

Tips In Getting Things Right All The Time

When it comes to caring for a child, the kind of monitoring equipment or nanny camera you need may depend on how big the house is. This is true because in a case of big houses you may want to make sure you go for hidden cameras that can view a wider range of distance unless maybe you want to install them in every hook and cranny. Also, do well to check for the functionality of the two-way communication between a transmitter and receiver of some of these monitoring nanny cam devices, because they can sometimes fail.

Are you traveling for a business meeting as a parent? Then what you need may just be a kind of mobile hidden camera that shows you everything in real time, your receiver can be clipped to yourself at all times using a belt clip, and make sure to charge your receiver battery to the fullest.

Security cameras are video cameras that record people’s activities in order to detect and prevent crime. This Piece of equipment has become an invaluable tool in the hands of security agencies, corporate organizations and individuals who preferably wants to ensure the security of their lives and properties, rather than leaving it to men who are termed “security agents”.

The security camera market in 2019 has been abuzz with the latest wares that leave the beauty of technology awe-inspiring one. Technological wares such as the dash cams, hidden spy cam recorder, motion activated hidden camera and the hidden camera clock, are among the trending equipment in the year 2019. In addition, the advent of artificial intelligence (A.I) computer vision is an added advantage to the emerging trends of security cameras this year. Therefore, with A.I, the emerging trends in 2019 for security cameras include deep learning, General data protection Regulation(GDPR) compliance, and drone detection technology which we look at briefly in our discourse.

In the last 12 months, a new range of terms has cropped up for usage in the security camera industry. Briefly, below, we will try to provide a concise summary of these terms:

 

Artificial Intelligence (A.I): Computers being able to perform specific tasks as well as or better than human intelligence. In the field of security cameras, this platform is used to classify images and patterns within them.

 

Big Data: Large amounts of different information being stored, organized and analyzed by computers to identify trends, patterns and relationship. In the context of video surveillance or security cameras, the data could be metadata describing hours of video surveillance footage together with other data sources to highlight patterns relating to security or business operations.

 

Cloud Computing: Rather than using a local server to store or manage video surveillance data, you can use a network of internet-connected remote servers for storage purpose. Basically, this network has the ability to provide an additional resource if and when required from a larger available pool. Resources available may be clustered into a data center or network of a data center. These may be private (entirely or partly owned for exclusive use by specific organizations).

 

Face Recognition: When a video surveillance system can automatically match a person’s face against a database of individuals.

 

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit): GPU is a programmable chip specialized for use in image processing. Due to the requirement to be able to simultaneously process large data required in modern image processing, GPUs have been found to be highly suitable for deep learning and neural network processing.

H265 (MPEG 4): This is a video compression codec standard approved by the International Telecommunications Union. Compared with H.264, H. 265 has the potential to use 30-40% less bandwidth for a video stream of the same quality.

 

IoT (Internet of Things): IoT is not specifically a device or a technology- it is a conceptual framework, driven by the idea of embedding connectivity and intelligence in a wide range of devices including security cameras.

 

It’s imperative to note that the video surveillance cameras have been growing and is forecasted to grow more in the 2019, as spy technology in use are estimated to about 10million, which gives credence to the fact that usage of security cameras by different agencies and individuals his becoming a norm due to the increase in crime rates and death toll premised on the aforementioned. The global shipping of cameras has grown from 10milliin in 2006 to 100million in 2016. It’s also forecasted that in 2019, there’ll be global shipping of about 130million security cameras to individuals and corporate bodies. Despite the usual increase in demand, the average price of cameras and other video surveillance equipment will continue to fall quickly. As a result, there’s a forecast for an estimated growth rate of less than 6% in 2019.

Security Camera Surveillance Fault Tolerance

For security cameras to maintain clean surveillance and minimize faults, certain parameters that are seldom discussed should be carefully given thought especially in the year 2019 and beyond. No one likes to plan for the worst, yet even though the video surveillance industry is increasingly making use of exquisite IT technology, many video surveillance systems still have fairly limited fault tolerance and the failover capability. Often, when compared with what is common in the Information technology industry, camera surveillance is thought of as having a relaxed approach to many aspects of failure and redundancy. However, as the multiple uses and perceived value of video surveillance data is increasing we may see increased demands for greater failover, redundancy, and backups from end-users. Security Camera surveillance systems which do have a level of fault tolerance tend to focus on fighting failure after a certain video is recorded by a camera. This is a higher impact of failure from the back-end rather than at an individual camera. For example, if an individual camera fails, the impact is smaller than if the recording server or storage system fails which may cause loss of all past and future video recordings.

As security camera surveillance system is being leveraged on to provide safety for multiple users beyond just security, the perceived value of it is on the increase as spy cameras have undeniably become assets of great repute. This value can sometimes be measured with incurred costs if data becomes unavailable. This may be a direct cost or an indirect cost. Cost analysis can form the basis for evaluating potential investment into additional levels of failure, redundancy, and backups for video surveillance systems such as:

  • Additional hardware costs
  • Additional software costs.

Finally, the video surveillance cameras market is in transition due to increasing market penetration or security cameras for a wide range of applications for commercial, institutional, residential and industrial users. The rising security concern and the need for highly efficient, time-saving surveillance systems at an affordable cost are few of the pressing matters to be looked upon in the current scenario. In addition to that, the increasing need for physical security across critical infrastructure is one of the enablers for the market. Owing to the aggressive infrastructural development, the demand for security is expected to remain high for the next 5-6 years. Also, the market for cameras is acquiring the major market share in the world of surveillance, because of the vast proliferation of IP camera-based surveillance systems.
