The use of hidden spy camera has increased in recent years. This is due to the conventional uses of spy cameras – surveillance and espionage aren’t the only reasons to use these types of cameras. Today spy cameras are used in different ways. Here are three of the most popular uses of spy cameras these days.

1.To protect your child:

 Nanny Cameras are one of the most significant segments of the spy camera market. These cameras get their name from the people you hired to watch your child when you're not around. Nanny cams come in all shapes and sizes, and most of them are made to look like everyday objects so that they will blend right into any home environment.

Let's face it unless you leave your child with relatives; you can never be sure of your child’s safety. With nanny cams around your home, you can monitor your child as well as their care providers. This way you can have peace of mind about what goes on in your home and should anything go wrong, you have video evidence against the perpetrators. Some popular nanny cams include dog nanny cameras and wireless baby monitors.

2.To safeguard your possessions at home:

As with your child, you probably have a strong desire to protect your prized possessions. Whether this is an old family heirloom or your new sports car, you can never ignore the security measures of your belongings. For your home security system, many camera choices are available. Here are two of the most popular:

Dome cameras are suitable for outdoor environments such as garages or entrances because they are durable and can withstand the elements and some pressure. Also, they have a 360-degree viewing angle so you can monitor a large area with them. Some good choices for dome cameras are the day/night infrared dome cameras and the vandal-resistant day/night infrared dome camera. These two types will surely offer you the protection you need.

On the other hand, IP cameras are more suitable for indoor use. IP stands for internet protocol. As you might have thought, these cameras usually work wirelessly. They are connected to an external viewing device, particularly to a personal computer. These types of cameras should be placed in a high location in a room you want to keep safe to work effectively. Having the camera high up means that it has the best possible view of the whole room and also that it is relatively free from obstructions and tampering. The IP camera selection includes a wired indoor IP camera and a wireless indoor IP camera.

3.To prevent workplace theft and employee misconduct:

If you own business, you no doubt want to keep your assets safe and at the same make sure your employees are happy and working well. Having security cameras around the workplace will help you achieve this. In addition to being used as a tool to help you catch and prevent workplace violations such as theft and sexual harassment, these cameras will act as deterrents – those who would commit violations will now think twice for fear of being caught red-handed on camera.
