Many people feel sad when their dash cam does not perform as expected; the reason is that they are wrongly placed and do not acquire the desired result. People sometimes get confused as to where to hide their dash cam for security around the house premises; this may require information search and careful articulation.
With exception of a bedroom, living room or a kitchen; there are a few places where you should never install a dash camera. Inside your bedroom, hiding a spy camera can be alongside a nightstand, beside some regular object like a radio or clock. You could also get hidden cameras already built into a clock and put it right on the nightstand.
Also, a curtain rod is another suitable place. A tiny spy cam is barely seen from a 10 feet distance, you could get much better viewing angle and record everything without troubles. The TV set, stationed toys, living rooms, bedroom, PC, bookshelf among others are good options to mount your cam.
These places are a no-go for a hidden camera installation.
Outside The House:
As the time in seasons changes, so should everything else. A dash cam is best mounted and wired through the roof of the garage, though some may feel it’s secretive to mount the camera outside the house in a secret corner, covered with a box set, the danger of disruption is high. Excessive heat from the sun will eventually weaken the performance of the cam. Also, liquid entry from the rainfall will be very alarming.
On Front Doors/ Walls/ Corridors:
This is like telling the burglars ‘I see you, but you can’t see me.’ Burglars want to get in and find out where you kept your camera, so as to upset it. Don’t do them the favor of placing it in front of the wall or at the door entrance. Corridor way is the least secret place in the house because it is free from itself and everything. Installing a hidden camera there will be most unfruitful.
People ask the question, what best place is there to hide your dash cam from your spouse, monitor their phones and activities? The answer will be in your bedroom but the truth is, that must be a place he/she wouldn’t want to lose your trust. To pick a secret call, the restroom is where you will find him or her. Rather than in the bedroom, install your cam somewhere in the master’s restroom or in the visitors’ restroom.
Lastly, out of the reach and knowledge of young and teenage children:
Children will play with anything that looks or does not look like a toy. Placing your camera on a TV stand or reachable bookshelf would be calling for big trouble. So choose a suitable place where your children can not reach, but you could keep an eye on their activities. Teenage children are smart enough not to commit any crime right in front of a monitoring camera; so to keep them in check, you must keep the cam secret.
Experience is a value. The good and bad experiences with your camera performance should guide you on where to re-install and how. People install cameras in different places for different reasons. The need for evidence must also guide your place of judgment.
