 Installing dash cam, nanny cam and hidden cameras for security reasons can be very decisive, so it is important to know the basics, specs, and fun-facts about some of these spy cameras and the purposes meant to achieve before installing them for your office space or building. When it comes to security cameras, there are four types, namely; fixed indoor cameras, Dome cameras, PTC Cameras, and bullet cameras.

Fixed indoor cameras are stationary cameras that comes in variety and different styles; very popular over the years. Dome cameras are the ones you can easily find in the ceiling areas, department stores or public places, while PTC cameras made especially for zooming purposes. Bullet cameras are the ones used for indoor and outdoor purposes; they are a little bit larger than the other options.

Now, the camera types we just mentioned can be breakdown into two Categories, and they both have the Pros and Cons, they are namely

  • Wireless Cameras
  • Wired Cameras

Wireless Cameras

This type of camera is very popular over the years and they are used for general surveillance on monitors just to see what is going on. There are two types; Traditional wireless cameras and the Wire-free cameras. Now, this may seem a little bit somewhat complicated but it will soon make sense when you continue to read through.

The traditional wireless camera also known as IP cameras has a power cord that has to be plugged into the wall of buildings in order to power the camera. Now, this is true for indoor and outdoor wireless cameras but it can be frustrating when installing for outdoor cameras considering that you may have to drill a hole in order to get the wire inside the house or office complex. The wire-free cameras are operated with the use of the battery and are connected through a Wi-Fi, so they have no wires; this means they can be placed just about anywhere you want. Most of these wire-free cameras like the ArloHD Camera and Stick-up Cam are weather resistant so they can also be placed outside. Keep in mind for some of these wire-free cameras for example; the Arlo HD Camera does have a base station that needs to be wired, so even if these cameras are wireless, you do have to wire them to a router.

Wired Cameras

In addition, when it comes to wired cameras; there are two types, namely;

  • Analog Cameras
  • POE (Power Over Ethernet) Cameras

Before we explain the differences between these two, let us differentiate between DVR and NVR

DVR (Digital Video Recording): This is a box that you need to connect your analog end to your camera with, and this will allow you to manage and record from those cameras, while NVR (Network Video Recorder) works for POE Cameras and IP Cameras. The NVR works like the DVR, but it has an extra feature; one thing is that some of them have POE ports in them, so if you have POE Camera, you can just plug it directly to your NVR to record your video and manage the cameras. In addition, you have the ability to connect your IP Camera that you have on your networks to that NVR as well. Even though they are not directly connected to the Wi-Fi, it can still manage them. Another thing to keep in mind is that NVR supports way higher camera resolutions than DVR.

Now, the Analog security cameras use a technology called BNC (Bayonet Neill–Concelman); an older version of video cable technology that is majorly used for older surveillance and video equipment but it is also capable of supporting 4HD Cameras. This means if you have a new analog camera, you can use BNC to support HD resolutions. However, analog cameras are going to require you to have a DVR; which you will need to connect to so that you can see a video and manage the cameras. Analog cameras do come with a long cable, because you do have to wire them around your building, and the cables used are going to have BNC connected to both ends and power cord for you to be able to power your camera.

The POE camera is going to use a single Ethernet cable for power and video, so it’s a single cable solution. Note that for you to be able to use POE Cameras; you need to have a switch that supports POE. Also be aware that most consumer network switches don’t normally support POE, so you may have to go and buy a switch that has POE Port on it, but instead of doing that; its recommended that you buy an NVR which has POE points on, the reason is that; it will help organize your network traffic. So rather than clogging up your network with a video data, you can just go to your NVR and use it to manage your cameras and recordings.

Therefore, we can say POE Cameras definitely provide the best image quality of all camera types, because of its Ethernet usage that supports high bandwidth. This means if you need a real high- resolution camera, you can buy a POE camera, which will also allow you to do things like zooming to get a license plate without losing image quality. Speaking of image quality, we need to talk about resolutions because that can also be complicated as well with these cameras.

Depending on which camera you buy, its either measured in pixels or TVL (TV Lines) – older terminology. For example; if you see a camera that says 90TVL, that is roughly close to 10APD resolution. Another measure you see is megapixels; you may see some cameras with 2-3 megapixels. 2.1 megapixels is roughly close to 10APD and any camera beyond 2 megapixels is usually going to be POE Cameras since Ethernet supports extra bandwidth.

Now let’s talk about the Pros and Cons of using these categorized two types of cameras

Advantage And Disadvantage of Wi-Fi / Traditional Wireless Cameras

Since Wi-Fi cameras or Traditional wireless cameras are one of the most common cameras you will see out there, its usually going to have better image quality than most wire-free cameras. With a lot of Wi-Fi and IP Cameras out there, do keep in mind that the difficulty can range from easy to moderate depending on which one you get especially if you are going to keep it outside. In addition, if you want to buy a lot of wireless cameras, you need to be careful because you can bug-down your Wi-Fi and cripple your network, so you definitely want to be careful with that. The simplest of all these camera options is definitely going to be the wire-free cameras, because they are easy to install and set-up. It is also recommended if you are renting an office space or building and you can’t run wires, so it can be easily moved around since they are battery operated. Another thing about wire-free cameras is that most of them actually have reasonable price monthly storage options if you want to store up videos on the cloud. They also come with Smartphone apps that work through the install and have a lot of different features which makes it simple for an average user.

Now the disadvantage of these wire-free cameras is that they are battery operated, in that when you put in high traffic and its getting a lot of motion, it will draw your battery really quickly. Furthermore, the image quality isn’t that good because the videos are so highly compressed; this is done to conserve battery life and to make files smaller in order for them to get stored up in a cloud. If you have one of these cameras in a high traffic area, you may find yourself replacing the batteries every time, which can be stressful. Now, one exception to these is the stick-up cam, because if you put them outside, they do have an option solid panel so that you don’t have to worry about changing them.

Advantage And Disadvantage of Analog Cameras / Wired Cameras

Analog security cameras are the least expensive if you want to use multiple cameras. Note that running cables throughout your whole building is not that difficult and its installation also. However, DVR takes more patience, but installing the camera itself is not that difficult. You need to pay attention to the resolution of your camera you are getting because there are some kits out there that are not HD and have some false names claiming that the cameras are clear and they are not. This gave way for POE.

POE Cameras are definitely the favorite; they have the best image quality and they are reliable. They have the ability to have a higher resolution like 5 megapixels and only uses a single cable. This is a great option for business people or for someone who just wants high video quality.

The shortcoming of using POE cameras is that; they are difficult to install, and they may require you to make your own Ethernet cables throughout your house as well. That is something to consider. Another important thing is that; they are much more expensive compared to the analog cameras and even some wireless cameras.

 When installing hidden cameras / motion activated hidden camera and spy cams, the first thing is to establish your main goals. Such goals may be securing of your property or monitoring of some activities, then you can now go on and use your scale of preference in judging what factor is of more importance in the installing of your hidden camera. Your scale of preference could be detecting the face of an intruder or getting the License plate number of strange visitors and so on.

To reduce the risk involved while installing hidden cameras, some of these factors we must give proper assessment and considerations for achieving positive results. Let us look at these factors one after the other.

Placement

The best camera placement for achieving any goal of using your hidden camera is to place your camera in strategic point such that the focus is on the subject. Most times, you can conveniently place them adjacent or opposite to your property, you are securing or monitoring. In addition, you have to find a specific camera that fits or match the area you are monitoring, to avoid suspicion.

For example, if you are installing a spy camera to view footage around the entrance porch of your house, you will need to find a perfect camera and a porch light that fits together and looks discrete and not too ghetto. Since the porch is located outside the house, then take note that the biggest fact in selecting an outdoor camera is that, it is strong enough to pick up the license plate number. This means the camera has to have focal length enough so that the zoom is not fixed; this is because you have to adjust the lens close enough to pick up the details of the license plate number you zoomed out from an entire landscape. This is so because when you zoom from a computer, you will not have clear details from the blurry view and these will not lead you to pick up the license plate number as it does in the movies. The cut matters short, you need a manual zoom on the camera.

Know The Megapixels Of The Camera

This is important but not as important as lens size. The higher number of megapixels, the less you have to zoom in so you can read the license plate number and still get a lot of landscape using the porch light area as an example.

Make Use Of IP Cameras

You can connect IP cameras directly to your computer's network. This is not too complicated to manage these days; it enables you to store all your videos on a cloud instead of a DVR or hard drive / NVR that intruders can easily access. If you cannot run Ethernet wires, another important feature will be a wireless camera. However, be aware that wireless cameras are very Clichy, which can be at times expensive to manage. Therefore, if you can run your Ethernet cable, it is better than having wireless camera. Lastly, in doing these, make sure it is an outdoor camera.

Camera Installation

When doing your installations, make it discrete and neat enough to avoid suspicion Just do not install them anyhow, you may even require the help of a professional in doing these for you. Using the Porchlight as a case study, you can easily drill holes into the porchlight frame and fix the light with the camera technically. Now you can run the wires through the back of the walls behind the porch-light fittings to your Ethernet so that you can control your camera through your computer network.

Software Selection

Before choosing your software, consider the following:-

  • Use software that works with most IP cameras, so that you can always have new cameras to suit your needs.
  • The software can record with motion detection and does it really well.
  • Make use of software that is not complicated but straightforward.
  • Use software that makes use of time stamp and makes it usable in the court of law.
  • Stores data immediately to the cloud.
  • It has a great phone app that you can use to view your camera anywhere you can get phone Ethernet. It should also come in one pack so you can install for both desktops and for phone.

When you buy your software from places like Amazon, they will email your activation code and then you can wait for the mail or just download it right away.

Data Storage And Free Storage Cloud Drives

Power storage is more useful, because not all footage can be physically stored as said before from external hard drive or computers. Use software as recommended which takes only a minute to pick up the footage and store in your cloud with a check. Therefore, when a thief steals your computer or camera, you can still have the information stored on your cloud.

When using the Amazon cloud, it has unlimited storage with it and its worth it because you can pick up all your devices including camera footage. However, Amazon does not upload immediately on its own, to do these; you have to download Odrive, which is a free auto upload application for Amazon cloud. It helps to store footage from your software to the new Odrive folder provided and the Odrive remains as a free version.

 

Logging In To Your Router

For some, these may look daunting, but it is not. most people have no idea how these are done properly, especially people that are not tech-knowhow.  You can log into your router by attaining its default IP address username, and password in the information that came with it or by Google searching its default if you have not changed them. Note that this is different from your Wi-Fi password. Now you paste the IP address into your browser, then you give your username and password and from there you just need to find the IP address of your connected devices. It might be also helpful to know where your ports are if you cannot use your camera on handheld devices as well.

Making It All Come Alive

Your house has a main IP address. Your router, each computer, each device, and each camera all have different IP addresses and passwords as well. When you note this, all remaining process is straightforward. Also, be aware that the router has different ports. Ports are where your IP addresses exchanges information. Write down your port standards as well, sometimes you need to assign the port called “port forwarding”, and assign the port for your software to be shared on your devices in your routers port forwarding section. Finally, you take all the IP addresses, passwords and ports and plug them into the software and the phone app, then everything becomes life and you are connected and in control of all your cameras.

If these entire processes look like hard work, remember most people have used these security systems and camera, and it actually works and you will not pay the high monthly fee sometimes attached to the use of security cameras.

Think of the savings, catching thieves and adding a sense of security in your life!

Feb 7, 2019 4:53:17 AM By Naveed Malik Comments Zetronix Products,

To be safe, when buying your smart gadgets like nanny cams, spy cams and so on for office security purposes, it is recommended that you make some few precautions to avoid having yourself being scammed! Below are some guides you can easily abide by for your safety.

Have A Broad Idea About The product You Intend Buying: To avoid problems, do enough investigation methodically in order to be more careful because at times those web catalogs may not describe a product the same way a shopkeeper will advertise its product. However, not many companies take a strict look at vendors and their products because of the lack of patience and time constraints or maybe because someone else who has bought and tested the product from the same company you intend to buy from has tipped you in buying from them. Nevertheless, such careless attitude towards buying at times can prove costly.

When you do not have sufficient information within your reach, contact the seller via email to send useful information you need to know before purchasing his products; most sites do respond quickly. However, if such companies tend to be slow in responding to questions or give unclear and indefinite responses, stay away from such sellers.

Look Out For Availability Of Accessories: Examine if any of the included accessories like USB charger, batteries, extra cables, Micro SD cards, case or carrying bag, and so on are well packaged and are original and not faulty. Now that you have checked the external envelope of the gadget, you will have to check if all the internal components are working normally.

Read the manual before buying: When manuals are been read, it is easy to avoid post-purchase regrets that may arise. You can source for such information / manual instruction by downloading the Pdf format from manufacturer's website. Some people have the wrong view of believing that they don't need to read manuals only after the purchase, that's a big mistake; it is better you do to avoid disappointments that come along with the feeling that you have wasted your money. Reading manuals can sometimes make you effectively choose whether to buy a product, choose another model or make or forgo the acquisition

Check Out for a bug bounty Program: Most Smart product manufacturers who care about your security will encourage hackers and researchers to report security flaws to them so that they can fix them quickly. You can search online for bug bounty on sites like‘HackerOne' or ‘bugcrowd' then enter the name of the product or the manufacturer in the checkbox, if the name is on their network, that's a good sign that the manufacturer cares about the safety of customers.

Compare prices Of Similar Products: Some companies may want to cheat when they observe that the customer has little knowledge on the product he/she intends to buy, If the product is still on the market, endeavor to visit several stores or sites to learn about the price of a similar model or product, then compare the prices. However, do note that prices may not be exactly the same for different companies but there can be few cents of difference in prices.

Download Their App: Always download apps of such companies so that buying from your Smart device is easy. You can download such apps from Google play to begin. When you have the app of these trading companies, you can easily view their video reviews on any product you intend buying.

Meet the seller and test the gadget: The problem many companies who deal in security gadgets have today is that they often tend to be in hurry in selling their product to the market, so they feel connectivity to the Internet is the primary focus and therefore makes other important matters lower on the priority list. Therefore, it is advisable you clarify it to the seller that you want to test the gadget you intend buying so that you can confirm if they are in good shape and check for specs that comes with it if it actually meets your niche of requirements before paying for them. Only consider buying open box items if the savings on the price tagged on them is worthy.

Note The Type Of Equipment Set-up Needed: This is an important factor that needs to be considered because some spy cameras, for example, needs more accessories and extra cables to buy along with. Knowing these will make you prepare for any extra spending you will need for manual installation if you are buying the analog system for example.

Budget: Doing a security gadget installation can be a little bit expensive for an office complex.  Therefore, it is necessary that proper preparations are made financially before embarking on such a project. 

Will the camera be indoor or outdoor: This helps in clarifying what type of security camera you will need in the first place.There are different types depending on your need such as hidden camera,nanny cam and dash camera etc.

Watch Out For Scams: Scammers now use more technology that is sophisticated in setting up fake websites that look like genuine online retail stores. When you buy security gadgets, you may receive the item you paid for but they may end up to be counterfeit, in some cases, you may end up receiving nothing at all, so do not trust a site just because you have seen it advertised or shared on social media. The best in detecting fake traders or social media online shopping frauds is to search for reviews before purchasing.

Buy From Legitimate Shops: How do you know a legitimate shop?  When the general terms and conditions of sale are accessible, and things like the company address and contact are clearly indicated for the feedback report. To confirm legitimacy, you can make a call or send messages in pretense; asking for availability of their products. In addition, you can check for the legitimacy of websites by visiting ‘who is' site and check if the name is on their database.

The use of Sunglasses with spy cams tend to be ignored by so many people but there are few people who tend to be interested in them and want to know what more they can do with them than just filming people on the beach without them knowing; so there is a legitimate use of these cameras.

One of the best spyglasses that can be helpful in getting the best use of its purpose is the version 13 of 10APD spyglasses; which is discrete, it also has a clear lenses and looks like a normal eyeglass as much as possible and records in 10APD. You can get it for $35, which is even cheaper than earlier versions.

Hands-free Use Of Spyglasses:

 Using spyglasses with your hands free can be a good experience and helpful sometimes like take for example, when a boy wants to film his dog when it is playing about, presuming he is holding a ball or a bag or something and he needs his hands free at the same time. There are other occasions that you might need your hands free and you want to record the same time; like when riding a bicycle or driving a car, perhaps like walking around the convention hall like all day and want to film with the glasses not on your head throughout the day. In addition, when you are doing a product demo, you can show products with both hands without having them trying to put them in front of you, if you had some decent spyglasses.

Recording Videos:

To start recording,  switch on the spy glasses by holding down the button at the side of the handle of the glass; there is a blue/red led cover button inside the hole that makes it look like purple and a couple of seconds the light goes blue. When you tap this same button, it flashes 3 times and starts recording, the light isn’t on when it is recording of course, so it looks like normal glasses at the same time recording videos. Also, if you want to stop the recording, you press the same button again, it will go back to standby mode; press and hold it down to switch it off.

Convenience And Focus Control:

Spyglasses offer excellent results since they are simple and convenient to use, there is no need to carry heavy equipment that people can easily recognize while still filming on the go.

This means you can film live events; and how they actually happen with audio effects to support. Another good thing is that you can actually place focus on a specific area you are laying much emphasis on. All this you can do discretely without anyone noticing since some of these glasses can sometimes look like prescription glasses.

Buy Transparent SpyGlasses For Spying Purposes:

 It is far less obvious that you are spying on someone when you are putting on a transparent or colorless screen glasses. It is made to be very simple that the person you are spying may just think you are using them to correct sight problems since they look like prescription glasses. There are a lot of transparent spy glasses out there, you can as well visit Amazon or other markets to get one that fits these purpose.

Monitoring Of Employee Performance:

With spyglasses, you can easily detect which staff as an employer is loafing around rather than doing their duties(as you do it with motion activated hidden camera). You can do these by just merely strolling around the office space or building while still capturing dubious and nonchalant attitudes of employees.

Used For Criminal Investigations:

 Detectives and other security personnel can now detect criminal intentions from facial expression while interviewing their suspects. This is done by making eye-to-eye contact with criminals why asking them questions. Most security personnel now have some technology integrated with these spyglasses when dialoguing with any suspect to know if the person has any criminal record. When the face of the person in question is captured, the sensors connected to the eyeglass passes information to the screen of the glasses that can be read.

Used For Presentations And Tutoring:

This is where the use of audio function becomes practicably useful. When preparing for presentations or speech to a large audience you can easily listen to recorded playback audio instead of having some old fashion description board in front of you or sheets of paper flying around your desk that may at a time look clumsy. The audio function also enables you to have good-recorded conversations with anyone

Used As PC Webcam For Windows

This feature enables you to be able to Video chat online using your camera glasses webcam feature. It is compatible with both PC and Mac computers.

As you probably already know, there are spy cameras that are autonomous. They are wireless and run on rechargeable battery. You can take them wherever you want.

Getting a spy camera is very easy today. Just see the many results on the search engines when you hit "spy camera". But how to deal with this mass of different products? Let's see now, how to choose a better autonomous spy camera. 

A hidden spy camera

An autonomous spy camera is primarily hidden in a gadget or unusual objects. It may look like a USB key, a lighter, sunglasses, a pen, a watch, a shirt button, a key ring, a cap, a clock, etc. These are hidden mini-cameras, used in high espionage. 

The wireless spy camera makes it possible to film without being detected thanks to its small size. 

Wireless spy cameras are used to monitor, spy and deter as it allows producing a complete result: a color video with audio. Depending on the model of mini wireless spy camera used, viewing of recordings is done either on your TV or on your PC. 

Indeed, a spy camera recorder plays the role of a video surveillance system. This type of system is usually composed of various elements: - Wireless spy camera - an alarm that triggers in case of a problem - any monitor or screen that allows you to view the images filmed live or even after - a recorder that stores and records the data. There are many models in online store: sports camera, DVR recorder pack, wifi hidden camera...

If you want to protect your home or business against possible burglaries, these devices are the most recommended. Burglars will ignore where the camera really is to make it disappear. You can also use it for all kinds of surveillance projects.   

Why film discreetly? 

The first question you need to ask yourself is: why do I need a spy camera? In general, you want to film in a discreet way that is without the others seeing the camera. 

We recall that the law forbids filming a person without notifying him. Looking to surprise a flight at home? Do you want to watch the nanny when you're away from home? Or do you have doubts about your husband or wife? It's a spy camera you need. 

Very easy to install, these little gadgets will quickly become essential to ensure your safety. But which one to choose?   

Spy cameras tested 

The number 1 advantage is the purchase of spy cameras tested at length, wide and across. We need to find companies that test these small cameras to get useful data for you. 

You need a product that works 100%. This is why, unlike other unscrupulous sites, you have to find a site that takes into account your satisfaction before selling you a camera. 

In addition, once your spy camera is purchased, this company offers you a complete tutorial that explains how your device works. 

Spy cameras connected in wifi

Installing a spy camera at home is ideal to monitor discreetly. But it's even better to be able to view live images on your phone instead of waiting to extract the videos to a PC.

Connected by wifi, spy cameras are accessible remotely, wherever you are! Thanks to an application to install on your phone or tablet, you will have access to your images from anywhere. 

The autonomous spy camera for more efficiency

Would you like to use spy cameras that do not allow you to be mobile or whose rechargeable battery life is very low?

Probably not. 

For a mobile and discreet surveillance, you must, therefore, buy a spy camera autonomous and mostly hidden. It has an internal storage capacity of large capacity according to your choice and you can carry it on you for long hours for espionage.

CCTV is a market in which several companies that are experts in this field compete with each other. As a result, B to B trade in this sector is growing at a rapid pace.

 Moreover, new customers are appearing, such as public authorities, start-ups, building and civil engineering experts, as well as new products like mobile video surveillance.

Mobile protection video is simply a complete surveillance camera device.ie. spy camera glasses usually in the form of a terminal. It can be installed on a wall, streetlight or vehicle. It consists:

  • One or more cameras for taking pictures, designed to resist in external environments (acts of vandalism, bad weather etc ...).
  • A secure telecom transmitter (VNP), with modem (Wifi, 3G or 4G) to transmit data directly to a PC, smartphone or tablet.
  • A power system: a battery to ensure its operation during the day, from a connection to a power source to recharge the device at night. The device can also be compatible with a photovoltaic charger.
  • A digital recorder running 24/7 to store images on a hard drive.
  • Remote management software.
  • A protective cover. The use of this type of camera necessarily induces a telecom subscription. 

THE PRINCIPE OF FONCTIONMENT

As its name suggests, mobile video surveillance and high-speed radio networks are a new and remote mobile surveillance system. It offers multiple benefits in several applications, especially in the public domain.

Public services such as municipal police have already experienced the strengths of this new technology. The devices are installed on defined perimeter terminals to be able to monitor sensitive areas or to test whether the location in question requires the installation of a fixed camera.

Mobile video surveillance is, therefore, a great innovation and everything is in its operating principle. It is, in fact, a video surveillance system including everything that makes up a video surveillance like night vision spy camera. The device is an "all-in-one" that attaches to street lamps or a specific location. Fully autonomous, the device can be moved as needed. It is not necessary to carry out important work. Everything is relayed by a broadband radio network that instantly transmits the images to a central.

MOBILE VIDEO SURVEILLANCE AT THE HEART OF B TO B TRADE   

Several organizations, public or private, are currently using mobile video surveillance and broadband radio networks to ensure their security. Local authorities, public bodies, building companies, associations... All recognize the convenience and ease of installation of this new remote monitoring system.

The actors around mobile video surveillance and broadband radio networks are multiple, especially the companies that design them. Although their principle of operation is simple, their design requires innovation and technology, but above all an expertise and knowledge of the standards / legislation inherent in their use.

Consequently, these entities, like TEB, VDsys or Axis, do not hesitate to trade B to B so that everyone benefits from this new technique of remote monitoring while maximizing their profit.

The benefits of mobile video protection

A completely autonomous device: most have batteries compatible with different energy technologies. The battery allows you to shoot continuously. 

  • Flexibility: The mobile camera offers a lot more flexibility. It's just where you need it, from one place to another. Compact and mobile, it adapts to different types of infrastructures.
  • Immediate commissioning and a less expensive system: no specific work, wiring, and infrastructure at the time of installation. The installation is done in less than an hour.
  • Track Mobile Crime: This device is more design and discreet, which makes it difficult to locate and allows the recording of video evidence. 
  • Anticipate the future location of fixed protection cameras: before engaging in expensive work in the installation of fixed systems, the mobile camera is very useful during the study and testing phase. 

Conclusion 

The market for mobile video surveillance has a certain future (TEB, Magsys...) since it responds to many problems encountered by municipalities: mobile delinquency, occasional event (carnival, festival...), building sites, and events, traffic changes... temporary video surveillance is often a reliable and adequate solution.

Many miniature recording devices are available over the internet. Some, the "Nanny Cam", are even hidden in seemingly innocuous objects, toys or stuffed animals, to go unnoticed in a child's room. It can be very tempting for parents anxious to install such a device in the nursery, to monitor the nanny and her actions, or simply to watch their child during the day. 

Parents are increasingly tempted to monitor their nanny's behavior with hidden cameras. This new trend is contrary to the law, with some exceptions.

 The miniaturization of cameras, coupled with lower prices, is encouraging some concerned parents to install devices to monitor nannies. In the United States, this trend is becoming stronger and specialty products are marketed as hidden cameras in teddy bears. Nanny cams, as they are called, are allowed by law. 

To protect his child, how far can surveillance go? 

CCTV is common. And some news shows that it can be useful. But it can constitute an invasion of privacy, an offense for which its author can be sentenced. To avoid entering this frame, you must: 

  • justify a legitimate interest in installing video surveillance 
  • Notify the nanny of the installation of the camera. 

This discussion will also allow you to explain your fears.

Of course, if you suspect your nanny of abuse, you do not see how to prevent it from installing a camera...

 

Video surveillance at home 

It is healthy and even desirable to have healthy nanny supervision. But putting a microphone or a camera is already going much further. Even though CCTV is easy and affordable today, it raises fundamental questions, including legal questions. The spying of your nanny is not without consequence on the relation which you will have with her. What should we consider when installing a home camera? Here are the Do's and Don'ts when installing a Nanny Cam 

 

Do not install the camera on a suitable surface

CCTV cameras are quite light. Regardless of the brand or design you use, the majority of video surveillance systems rely on small devices.  However, just because the equipment is light and small does not mean that you have to neglect where the camera is going to be placed. What if, for example, you find the perfect location for a camera, climb up the ladder, and then realize it's a stone wall? Or that it is not possible to punch a partition for any reason? However, nothing is ever lost. If you have some cement or a little ingenuity, you can still install the camera. You will just need extra time to install your surveillance camera.

Have the image is upside down 

Nothing is more frustrating than finishing your installation, launching the setup and seeing one of the cameras display the image upside down (up and down inverted).  With their rotating head, it is easy to fix this problem for some cameras. But there are other ways to overcome this problem. The camera setting software can allow you to switch the image. This is true for most cameras.  However, to avoid all this, look carefully, before fixing the camera, in which direction it should be positioned. This way, during the installation, you will be much more efficient.


Install the camera in the wrong position

The positioning of the cameras is essential during installation. As you walk around your property, you can spot the best viewing angles.

However, beyond the point of view and avoiding clogged areas (such as trees), how is the sunlight going to evolve throughout the day?

The last thing you want is to have a strong glare of sunlight directly on your camera. Otherwise, you may not have the images, or poor quality, for a certain period of the day.

A good location for installing cameras is right under the roof, at the overflow level. This protects the camera from rain and direct sunlight.

Install cameras beyond the wireless range 

Some security cameras are wireless. Wired cameras, on the other hand, are excellent and offer good material stability. But this installation is not very practical all the time. And she also asks for more time.  Wireless cameras are easier to configure. What you need to know, especially for wireless cameras, is that every brand or model of surveillance camera has a defined wireless range.  Thus, there is a maximum distance between the camera and the central box. Once the camera begins to reach the range limit with respect to the panel, the camera may show errors and may not work at all.  But what to do? And all is not lost: you can extend your wifi.  

Do not use sufficient cameras to cover your entire property 

Sometimes you do not know how many cameras are needed for your home. In general, you need at least two cameras.  Many kits include between two to four cameras. But sometimes it's not enough to give a complete picture of your property. If you use your system just to see who enters your property, a small amount of cameras is enough. However, if you want full protection, you probably need more than one camera. A wide-angle lens is ideal for covering a wide field of view. But a wide angle is not great for identifying and recognizing faces.  Thus, you will need cameras covering different areas. You can start with the starter kit of four cameras for example. But think of investing in a kit where it is possible to add cameras just in case. 

Do not activate notifications and alerts

You cannot monitor the CCTV system all day long, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So what happens if a burglar approaches your house and you do not look? Even though security cameras can reduce the risk of burglary, we are never immune to anything...  It is therefore important to set your video surveillance system by checking notifications and alerts. Thus, you will be informed in case. These alerts can inform you when a camera is recording motion. But again, be careful to set up your system. Indeed, it should not be too sensitive; otherwise, as soon as a branch or the shadow of a cloud will pass, you will receive a notification. And that can be very annoying in the long run. Take a look at the user manual to be able to better set your cameras. Do not install cameras with a power source Yes, a wireless camera does not require an Ethernet cable connection. The data pass the wifi. This does not mean that the camera will work by the operation of the Holy Spirit! A camera must have a power source. Just plug it into a power outlet. Most wireless cameras work with a power cable. But others work with batteries or batteries.

The dashcam only offers safety benefits when riding. But there is, unfortunately, a black spot that is important to take into account.

The camera is a high-tech and valuable object that, just like auto-radios or GPS, attract thieves when they are left prominently in a car.

What is a dashcam?

 A dashcam is a small camera embedded in your car. She films and records everything that happens outside and around the cabin.

 This road safety accessory fulfills the function of "driving recorder". It looks like a small box that is placed on the windshield or on the dashboard of the car.

This funny name comes from "dashboard camera. Manufacturers or distributors call it an "onboard camera"

What are the onboard cameras used for?

A dashcam is used to record all the visual information about your car journeys.

It films everything in video format that the driver sees. Some cameras split with a camera in the front of the vehicle and another in the back.

Some cameras also have a "parking" mode.

They then become real surveillance systems by movement or shock detector, during the duration of your parking. So, when a person approaches or touches the car, the camera automatically engages and films what is happening around the vehicle.

The best performing cameras can also have a GPS to indicate routes of your car or issue danger alerts. The interest is mainly to attest the geolocation, the speed of movement of your car, the date and time of the shots. 

How does a dashcam work?

The dashcam is simply installed next to or under the rearview mirror of your car.

It is connected by a cable and a USB plug to the cigarette lighter.

Video recordings are viewed directly on the device via a small screen. They can also be transmitted to your smartphone via a wireless connection (wifi).

Dashcam and insurance

Auto insurances and judges recognize as evidence the images of an onboard camera since they are geolocated and dated.

Nevertheless, these are proofs among others. They are neither less nor more valuable than all the other elements that the people involved in an accident can provide, including the police report, the amicable report, direct testimony or photos taken with smartphones.

Using a dashcam in case of an accident

In case of an accident, an onboard camera allows you to quickly provide images to the authorities or your insurer.

These may include proof that you are not responsible for an accident or damage to your car. In this way, you can consider compensation for your damage without the possibility for your opponent to invoke shared wrongs.

With the onboard camera, you can also prove a possible parking accident, hit-and-run or the deliberate will of a pedestrian or cyclist to cause a collision to get repairs.

Here are some savvy Tips to Keep Your Dash Cam Safe and Secure     

Do not leave your dashcam in the car

There is no secret, the best solution, which is infallible, is, of course, to choose an easily removable model and take it with you when you leave the vehicle. It is a habit that many have taken with their car radio or GPS. Just as you do not leave your cell phone, tablet, computer or anything else of value in your car, do the same with your dashcam. It's a reflex to take quickly.

Most spy cameras are mounted on a stand that can easily be removed. Simply unplug it and remove it from its base. The support, meanwhile, remains fixed in the car, so you will not have to redo the settings of the angle of view.

The discretion of a dashcam

And because forgetting can always happen, having a camera as discreet as possible will minimize the risk of theft. For this avoid flashy models, bulky, or with the mention "DASHCAM" written in very large above. A big lens or an LED lit when you are parked can also attract the eye. 

So if you have the option of leaving your camera 24 hours a day in your car, opt for a model as small and discreet as possible.

Make your dashcam more discreet

If however, you have flashed on a well-seeing model it is still possible to customize a little to make it more discreet.

If an LED remains lit when your car is stationary and it cannot be turned off, a small piece of black tape or scotch of electrician will make disappear this bad signal.

If the aesthetics of the camera is too bright, a few markers or a little paint will make it all much more discreet.

But these solutions are still to use with caution because they may present problems in case of warranty of the device or for resale. In this case, the use of plastic dip can be a good thing.

The plastic dip is an elastomeric liquid coating. It has the advantage of being applied to many media and especially to be easily removed without leaving traces. But again we insist that the best solution to avoid theft is to not leave the camera in a car when you are not there.

 

 

 

Nov 29, 2018 12:17:02 AM By Naveed Malik Comments Dash-Cam News,

The screens are an integral part of our daily lives. Whether in front of the television, our smartphones, and tablets or computers, our eyes are continually exposed to screens throughout the day. The living conditions of today no longer allow us to get rid of them. In the office, for leisure or to communicate, screens have become indispensable.

According to a study conducted in 2014 in the United States, an American would spend an average of eight hours per day in front of a screen. This significant exposure to screens would even addiction.

Ever more realistic video games, ever more entertaining shows and the rise of social networks are the main causes of this addiction. The participative and interactive aspect of many platforms (video games and social networks) also pushes us to always stick to our screens.

After laptops and smartphones, will the new technological revolution be that of video recording glasses? One thing is certain: these high-tech glasses promise to show the world differently. The idea? That all kinds of applications and information are displayed before the eyes, increasing the reality. As if real and virtual were one but with what effects on our brain and our everyday life?   

Technologies that show reality differently

Connection to the Internet, cameras, microphones, memory, processors ... The connected glasses, under development, add to what is found in most smartphones, to which they add a key element: the direct display of information in front of the eyes, without hiding the view.

Energy autonomy for a day

Advances in batteries helping (lithium ion or lithium polymer), glasses coming on the market claim a few hours of autonomy to a day of intensive use.

Analysis and storage of information in real time

Voice recognition, recognition of faces, shapes, gestures ...

The glasses process in real time all kinds of data, either locally (storage and computing power are equivalent to those of a smartphone), or via the Internet, servers and computer centers that support all or part of the storage and analysis required.

Localization and motion detection to the nearest centimeter

Magnetometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS ... Sufficiently miniaturized to be housed in the branches, these sensors constantly indicate the position, acceleration, and position of the glasses. What to look for, identify the position and trajectories of objects in the field of vision. 

Voice and touch communication discreetly

To order an action on the glasses: the choice is the voice, picked up by a microphone - with attenuation of noise and echo - and analyzed by software, or the touchpad. The glasses and distant interlocutors can be heard by bone transmission: the sound emitted by a special speaker in contact with the skull reaches the ears without being perceptible by the entourage.

The display on the glass of all kinds of information.

Miniaturized projectors broadcast the information provided by the network or the onboard memory (static images, videos, texts, ...) on all or part of the surface of the glasses, by means of tiny prisms housed in the glass, which also lets in the light from the scene before you.

The permanent connection

Whether the glasses communicate with the Internet through a smartphone, to which they are connected via Bluetooth, or directly (via their antennas 3G, 4G, wi-fi ...), they are mostly connected to the network to be able to display information adapted to the place, the moment, the context, the requests ...

The detection of light, infrared and motion

Sensors record the intensity of light, in the visible or the infrared, and provide information on the movements in progress in the field of vision. Useful for automatically triggering the display of certain information, or to adapt the display to the ambient brightness.

Capturing photos and videos in HD

To transmit at any moment, at a glance, exactly what is in front of one's eyes: this is the simplest use of glasses. It is based on one or two HD spy cameras, which capture images coming into the retina of the user.

Information about its environment

Seeing beyond appearances. With connected glasses, walking in a street will mean having all the information about the street, whether tourist or commercial, in the corner of your eye - here, an apartment is for rent; there, this bistro offers happy hours, etc.

Knowing where the user is (thanks to GPS and wi-fi) and in which direction he looks, an algorithm searches the database for information and locates it in the visual field using an arrow.

 

Depending on what you are looking around, it will be sufficient to launch the ad hoc application and then set it up. For example, for an apartment search, the classifieds will appear directly on the facade of the buildings concerned.

The same approach will identify in the urban landscape restaurants, bank counters, metro stations...

To obtain a very precise positioning of the information (place it on a showcase, for example), certain algorithms can be used, provided to have a photographic database. Like Google...

A surefire memory

This is only an example, but it is emblematic. Imagine that you can not find your car keys. Where did you leave them?

Instead of questioning your memory, you might soon ask the question to your connected glasses. Because the camera that equips them necessarily accompanies the slightest look of the one who wears them, but with equal attention that allows him to "remember" everything she has seen. One could then imagine digging into a kind of visual backup of one's own life, to pinpoint where and when the keys were last seen.

Which implies to film his life permanently ... But this idea has been making its way for a few years. Since, in particular, that the instantaneous storage of large amounts of data is within everyone's reach, and that we have become accustomed to feeding the social networks of any daily event.

It remains to dive into this manna. How? By entrusting an image analysis software to recognize the lost object, from the moment the user has "tagged" it.

For now, no pair of connected glasses offers this function. But, if we forget the problem of privacy - we should be able to film everywhere, which is already forbidden in some places - such a service, technically possible, could be quickly developed. And many familiar questions - what was the title of this book I was told about yesterday? -will remain unanswered.

Here, the glasses aim to increase our memory capacity.   

A BLANK FOR THE BLIND?

The idea can make you smile ... But it is very serious. Glasses with a camera and a computer system capable of reading, recognizing objects or scenes and informing the wearer by voice synthesis that could make invaluable services to the blind.

Software developers have understood this, and a first prototype, proposed by the Israeli start-up OrCam, is already being tested.

 

Hearing impaired people could also benefit from eyeglasses displaying what their speech recognition software would hear for them.

Studies are underway to, in the same logic, to teach glasses to recognize sign language. And, already, glasses as simple as Google Glass will allow a disabled motor to do some things so far impossible, such as calling or texting ... without hands.

An almost telepathic vision

The desire to share an experience with those we love is as old as the world. In line with the postcard and the MMS, 3G networks allow today to show in video and live what we see. Glasses with a camera offer additional benefits: simply turn your head to frame the subject and share it live with anyone who also wears glasses connected and with whom we have established a communication.

A kind of telepathy which, of all the new uses proposed is perhaps the one which has the most chances to seduce a vast public.

Data on others

Whether in a private setting or - and this is more likely to be the case - professional, anyone seen through the glasses connected is likely to be "decrypted".

Who are they, what are their references or interests? The answers are displayed live in front of the glasses wearer. Anyone is immediately identified via facial recognition, associated with the information available on the Internet (profile on social networks, activities ...) and the history of your last exchanges, recorded by the glasses.

In a formal meeting context, face recognition could be replaced by reading badges - this is what many developers are preparing on different prototypes. Google, for its part, has chosen to deprive Glass of facial recognition, fearing the intrusive side of such an application.

Geolocation

The use of GPS has become commonplace, but we have not seen anything yet. First, because the arrival of the connected glasses will facilitate that of the guidance without the hands, and make it easier to move on foot, by bike, by car or by public transport.

A single guide will present in the visual field, as long as necessary, the direction to take and useful information (bus schedules, nearest metro station ...). And that's only the beginning.

 

Developers prepare applications that go beyond guiding towards a fixed goal. In practice, a cyclist may for example be guided not only to a fixed address, but also, in the process, to a mobile comparée equipped with the same glasses.

In real time, thanks to the on-board GPS and compass, the position and the direction followed by other people on the way to the same destination will be displayed in front of their eyes.

GAMES ON EYEWEAR PROMISED TO A GREAT FUTURE

Games for Google Glass are already announced, transposing classics of the genre - shooter games, chess ... - on a tiny screen located above the right eye. Interest?

Being able to play in any place, keeping an eye on what is happening in front of you, and rubbing against a new way of interacting with the machine: the designers of these games entrust the controls to the movements of the head or orders given out loud.

This game will follow, thanks to GPS, the movements and online activities of connected players, to immerse them in a simulation of ... anthill. This anthill is none other than the very real city where the players evolve.

A prefiguration of fun innovations where role-playing games, track, shooting ... should be crossed between the real world and the connected world.

Extrasensory perceptions

Some glasses under development are equipped with an infrared camera. What could imagine, like the commandos, see the night and distinguish the sources of heat?

Or know the temperature of a sick child at a distance, for example. Even without infrared sensors, cameras could, through algorithms, detect the speed or frequency of a movement, such as that produced by breathing.

In other areas, algorithms for instant image processing would allow the currency to count rapidly, to estimate the calorific value of a meal or to evaluate the quality of a weld.

Instructions for use

Having a device capable of indicating where and how to act, all under voice control, leaving your hands free: interest seems obvious when it comes to repairing an engine, mounting a kit or cooking.

Already available on some smartphones, this kind of application, which offers at will all kinds of instructions, is in preparation for the connected glasses. But this time, it is in large format, in front of the eyes, that will be displayed the diagram to follow step by step.

Better: an algorithm able to locate in the user's visual field the piece on which it must intervene, for example, will display graphically in his eyes information directly "wedged" on the real, like the image of the tool ad hoc in the right position. The use of two-dimensional barcodes on parts or tools is one way of simplifying the work of these algorithms.
