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.

The security of your business is not something to be taken lightly. First of all, since it concerns the protection of your assets, ie your financial investments, but also because it affects the safety of your employees.

Your level of protection also playing on the amount of your insurance contribution

 Optimizing the security of a building for professional use is often one of the top priorities of a company moving to its new premises. The challenge is not just to protect the burglars' offices or workshops.

The issues of flow management and different user access privileges, that is to say, employees and visitors are a real challenge for companies hosting daily individuals and categories of staff. If enterprise surveillance cameras instinctively appear as an effective solution, it is far from the only one.

 Various access control and alarm devices are also very useful for securing a building. Above all, these different devices are not mutually exclusive but benefit from being brought together in a real security system. What are the technical characteristics and advantages of hidden cameras in security devices and systems in companies?

Business use

Companies place hidden cameras in order to obtain evidence during flights. This helps identify unscrupulous behavior or even casual thieves. Housekeeping and cleaning company working at night, colleagues digging into confidential files, fraudulent intrusion...

For small and medium businesses that want to protect their premises, there are several levels of security.

The first, the alarm. This device makes it possible to trigger a high power signal as soon as an intrusion attempt is detected (shock and movement detector).     

The sensors are placed on the premises but also outside, if you need it. You can choose to protect your company 24/7 by delegating the management of alerts to a third party. The alarm is directly connected to a Central Station. Reaction times are short and depending on your subscription formula a call to the police or intervention of vigilantes can be done within minutes of the call.

 In this kind of device, there is no continuous video recording but rather screenshots with each suspicious motion detection. The recognition of an individual will be done by you or by a security agent and the alert will be definitively triggered if necessary.

Other security systems managed by you or a third party use the principle of video surveillance by a camera arranged inside and outside the building. They operate by analog, wireless or IP. The data is then managed either remotely by a security company or at home, in situ, if you have acquired the full version of the monitor/recorder solution and user data storage capacity (servers).

MOTION DETECTION

The benefits of integrated motion detection in most cameras are indeed unavoidable. The first is the direct processing of video motion detection in the camera itself, so the workload for all recording devices in the system is greatly reduced.

From this alert, monitoring is facilitated. Automated motion detection for each video stream can receive an independent adjustment. The viewing screen only displays what is predefined. Any other intrusion can be zoomed manually.

Limits of use

The hidden camera is part of the freedom of communication. In principle, this procedure is not legal and many journalists use it in the exercise of their profession, as much as other professionals (police, security agencies, etc.). Its use is often necessary in cases where it is difficult or impossible to obtain the information by any other means.

To limit its use to the necessities of public information and to avoid the risk of slippage, justice has laid a specific framework:

The hidden camera should be used in circumstances where the information could not be obtained differently;

The process must be revealed to the public so that the people filmed do not feel watched after the recording of the scenes.

If people are filmed or recorded without their knowledge and without their prior consent, they should not be identifiable during the broadcast of the recording.

Television channels must necessarily guarantee the anonymity of the people and places filmed.

The different solutions to secure your business premises

 In addition to corporate surveillance cameras used in video surveillance or remote surveillance, there are various access control solutions and several types of alarms.

Access controls

Access control devices are the most essential, most basic security tools. Basically, a simple key is in itself an access control device, but quickly becomes unsuitable when the number of doors to open and the number of employees becomes unmanageable.

Different systems allow greater flexibility, depending on the incoming identification technology:

- The code keyboard,

- The audio and / or video doorphone,

- The badge reader,

- The biometric reader,

- The electronic cylinder.

It should be noted that complex systems can combine all or part of these identification technologies, in order to further secure certain accesses.

Their installation is extremely simple in most cases: just think of doing some electrical work and pass cables in the walls to install readers and doorkeepers.

The scalability of these systems is one of its first benefits, as well as its flexibility. It will indeed be possible to use systems or combinations of access control more or less advanced depending on the degree of protection to be granted to this or that access.

In addition, these devices are particularly simple to decline for a large number of users and to change if necessary: only a few minutes are enough to disable a badge, create a new one, or change a code.

Finally, the fact that no legal obligation governs this device - except in the case where it requires the registration of biometric data - is another advantage in its favor.

What threat does video surveillance pose?

The most unpleasant and obvious consequences of video surveillance failures are the potential identification of individuals during registration. In other words, a cybercriminal can identify you and then use those images against you for you to sing or burglar. Not to mention the invasion of privacy.

 Of course, video recording is not enough to share a lot of information about a victim; however normal people voluntarily publish a lot of personal information on the Internet. Perhaps the most publicized incident of this kind was the revelation of X-movie actresses.

Users on a forum had found social media profiles of X-movie actresses and had contacted them with the help of facial recognition services such as FindFace, to then harass them.

The number of CCTV cameras is constantly increasing, as is the quality of their image. For example, most companies entrances are equipped with motion activated hidden cameras that provide good picture quality even in the dark. Ever wondered how many surveillance cameras you see on your way home to the local supermarket? Have you ever thought about potential threats and means of protection?

The different solutions to secure your business premises

In addition to corporate surveillance cameras used in video surveillance or remote surveillance, there are various access Surveillance cameras for business video surveillance.

For a company, a surveillance camera is another security device ... from the moment it is integrated into a real video surveillance system.

The cameras themselves may be wired or wireless, analog or digital, intended for outdoor or indoor use and allow daytime, nighttime or both. These cameras operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

They are connected to a "central" and a registration system. The communicating models transmit an alert to the user, even if he is deported, by an automatic call of his telephone, an e-mail or an SMS.

Alarms and detectors are often usefully added to the system.

The business benefits of surveillance cameras in such a configuration are that they represent a complete security system, which detects intrusions, collects evidence and gives warning.

Related services

Finally, one of the most important criteria is undoubtedly the dimension of services associated with the security system. Indeed, despite technological progress, despite the decline in equipment prices, we must remember that security is primarily a service.

If the priority of the user is to feel perfectly calm, because he will know that the system has been well installed, well controlled, and well used in normal times as in the time of the problem, it is, of course, possible to take a provider for each task.

 But it is also possible to use a single company, as part of a contract for remote monitoring. The best thing is to request a quotation in CCTV to compare offers from different providers.

How not to crack for any of the security gadgets: Police Day Bomb, Alcohol Tester Breathalyzer Digital Breath, LCD Display Analyzer, Portable Alcohol Detector, spy cams, Security Player Gadgets, and nanny cams.

With each visit of the sites, you will find good plans and incredible promotions on the biggest brands of this universe but at the time of the purchase, there are essential to take into account.

A lack of product information

A web catalog does not work as the shopkeeper thinks in terms of product knowledge, unlike a shop, the user needs to be very knowledgeable. The products presented on your website should have a detailed description and useful to customers, comprehensive and comprehensive information and product.

If you are buying a second-hand gadget, the seller should indicate how often or in what period the item was used, if it was repaired or if it was damaged, even slightly.

If it seems to be missing information, contact the seller. Most sites allow an email to be sent to the seller and the seller usually responds fairly quickly (after all, he wants to sell his gadget, right?). If he is slow to answer or responds vaguely and goes around the bush, it is suspicious.

Are there accessories or not?

Compare apples with apples. For two similar offers - including wear and condition of the item in question, see if any of them include accessories (charger, batteries, case or carrying bag, etc.), packaging or the original bill - people who keep the packaging often pay more attention to their belongings than others, if I rely on my personal experience.

Now that you have checked the external envelope of the gadget, you will have to check if all the internal components are working normally. Come with your different cables and make sure everything works without difficulty.

Current price for this product or similar product

If the product is still on the market, visit several stores or sites to learn about the price of a new or used, or a similar model or product, then compare.

Do not buy in any shop

First important step: the choice of the shop. When you have the choice, prefer an online store that you already know by fame or because you have already used it. Make sure that the general terms and conditions of sale are accessible; the physical address of the company must be clearly indicated with a means of contact (phone, email).

If you have no choice and you have doubts about the reliability of a seller, do not hesitate to contact them by phone or email under the pretext of checking the availability of a product. Do some research on the internet with the name of the shop or ask the community's opinion in our pre-purchase advice forums to find an alternative or collect opinions.

Behind each ad, there is someone who is looking to get a good price for his property. And because not all people are always animated with the best intentions in the world, it's important to make sure that whoever offers the latest fashionable terminal at an unbeatable price is not a rogue trying to get away from you. a gadget that looks like two drops of water to the original.

There are several approaches to avoiding a scam: you can play your contacts (maybe a friend of a friend is selling his device?) And watch the ratings left by other users if the site on which you could close your transaction has such a confidence indicator. This kind of information, which is found on eBay or Amazon, is very useful for the user who wants to assess at a glance the reliability of an advertiser.

Meet the seller and test the gadget

Also make it clear from the outset: tell him that you would like to meet him in person in order to take control of the device and check if it is in good condition.

Also indicate your desire to conduct some tests on it, without necessarily specifying which, to make sure everything is in order. The mere fact of showing you as picky in the acquisition of the gadget will allow you to sort the wheat of the chaff.

Watch out for scams!

Make sure that the site on which you buy your gadget has a satisfaction or refund policy, in case the seller does not send the item or send a different one.

Also, make sure the item is not stolen (having the original bill often eliminates this possibility).

Detect hidden bugs and defects

Now that you have checked the external envelope of the gadget, you will have to check if all the internal components are working normally. Come with your different cables and make sure everything works without difficulty.

Play with your levers sparingly

Another element that you can highlight during the negotiation is the absence of a guarantee when the user who is now trying to sell his property has benefited from it.

 By playing on this aspect, you can very well point out that you will eventually have to make additional purchases to protect the gadget (a case ...) and a discount roughly equivalent to their purchase would be a gesture that you would greatly appreciate.

Of course, if all this is provided with the device, no need to lose your saliva!

In this regard, do not hesitate to ask for the invoice if the user still has it in his possession to know the date of purchase, if the warranty has expired and, if applicable, the conditions for the benefit.

Finally, do not expect incredible discounts. A good deal is above all a deal in which each party leaves with the feeling of not having been wronged. Of course, as a buyer, you will be especially careful to make the biggest possible savings while getting the gadget of your dreams.

When we want to equip with CCTV cameras, it is necessary to ask the right questions to accurately assess its needs. For the choice of a spy camera, it is the same. Here are some points to consider when choosing your spy camera:

 Fixed or mobile

 Spy CCTV cameras take different forms and adopt different technologies depending on their use. For fixed video surveillance, in a clock or alarm clock, for example, it is easier to build a product with better characteristics than for a mobile product.

A camera built into a clock or alarm clock will easily be equipped with a more powerful lens or a larger storage space, than a camera-pen.

The size of the camera receptacle greatly affects its quality and price.

 The record

 It is important to be able to store the images recorded by the CCTV camera. For this, several technologies are available.

 - Built-in camera storage: Internal storage allows you to record filmed images. In general, a mini-USB or micro-USB jack is hidden somewhere on the object to transfer the videos to a computer. The available size for this type of storage is quite limited: 2 GB / 4 GB / 8 GB

 - SD Card: An SD card slot is located on the device, allowing you to insert storage cards with up to 128GB of storage space.

 - Recorders: As a storage mode for conventional CCTV cameras, the recorder can store several To (1 TB = 1000 GB) of data on hard disks. The transmission of the video signal from the camera to the recorder is via a 3G transceiver.

 Here are 4 innovative features of a spy camera.

 There are many ranges of Spy CCTV cameras, each with different features and options. It is important to target your needs and choose the right product.

 

  1. Micro integrated

Know that before buying your spy camera, you must pay attention to various features. Check if it is equipped with a built-in microphone because the sound is very useful when you shoot. There are many models that already have this option. 

  1. Autonomy

Some items do not need to be plugged in when recording videos. Indeed, some wireless technology is recharged before use. Therefore, when you buy think to consult the information about the autonomy of the accessory in which will be integrated your mini-camera: glasses, watch, pens, etc. If you want to record for long periods, opt for tools with long battery life. 

  1. Nocturne

 Depending on the model, spy cameras may or may not have the capability of night vision. Some products are capable of filming at night without a light, thus promoting total discretion. 

If you want to shoot in the dark or at night, these models ship infrared LEDs. They give a clear picture even in the middle of the night. 

  1. Motion detection

The option of motion detection is also very popular. It allows you to record without touching the gadget. It also saves battery and thus optimizes the autonomy of the device.

Thanks to this option, the recordings will be triggered automatically at the slightest movement; the camera remains off as long as there is no movement.

There are obviously many other options depending exclusively on the type of media hosting the camera.

Nov 23, 2018 12:43:05 AM By Naveed Malik Comments Hidden Spy Camera ,

Body worn cameras, which record both video and audio, are currently being used in public and private premises for policing or individual purpose. The police regulations deem it fit for use only when it is proportionate, legitimate and necessary, unlike individual purposes that could differ depending on its owner.
The technology deployed in their making ensures they are used overtly which means they will be clearly visible and worn on the outside of an officer’s uniform or headwear. When it is in operation, a flashing red light will appear on the camera and officers will advise members of the public that the camera is in use.

Although the cameras will be worn during an entire shift, they may only be turned on when an officer is responding to an incident or working on certain policing operations. They cannot be used for general patrolling or for continuous, non-specific recording.

The evidence they record will be used to corroborate but cannot replace evidence from other sources such as eyewitness accounts. also, it is worthy of note that anyone can request police body cam footage, although local police departments say it’s most commonly sought by attorneys seeking evidence.

Top 6 Benefits of Body Worn Cameras

Though body-worn cameras were first adopted by Napa traffic officers several years ago in hopes of refuting complaints about traffic stops, the expected benefits of the cameras based on trials and research to date, include:

  • Improved evidence to support investigations
  • Increased conviction rates – particularly in the case of domestic violence and public order offenses
  • A reduction in assaults against police officers
  • An increase in guilty pleas due to better evidence
  • Transparency in policing
  • The cameras have also been shown to act as a deterrent in certain confrontational situations

We can look at these cameras in the force sector as a key tool to protect both members of the public and officers inclusive. In addition to providing vital evidence to support investigations, complaints and improve on legitimacy and safety for the public.

BODY-WORN video cameras are now being rolled out to selected North Yorkshire Police teams. The force said it would begin issuing the cameras to authorized firearms officers, taser trained officers, response officers and custody staffs. The cameras have been introduced extensive research around body worn video in other police areas.
A wireless Bluetooth connection lets an officer view videos and photos captured by the camera on a police-issued smartphone. A special phone app allows the addition of notes and metadata to help the department keep track of evidence and any requests for it. Equally as important as the video devices are the network that will capture and safeguard it, which is why there is a password-protected website, Evidence.com, that stores this footage.
Once in a while, police officials are required to hire so-called white-hat hackers four times a year to check its system for online intrusions and security flaws. The use of the cameras will be monitored and evaluated during active and passive use, which will then inform any future decisions about their wider use.

Digital photo frame spy cameras are becoming the new expert covert surveillance options today. Picture frames are primarily the most interesting methods for displaying your photos and sharing them with others. Digital photo frames obviously came out to make a better presentation of the traditional way of displaying photos in a home.

However, indoor cameras serve a way broader purpose. Indoor security cameras will assist you to keep tabs on pets, kids, and therefore the overall security of your home. They'll additionally function as an additional set of eyes once your children are in different rooms. If you prefer to grasp what’s happening once you’re away or out of sight, you should be willing to buy a variety of "nanny-cams" with remote access, recording, and more.

This type of camera is hidden within a home or nursery section like a home-based device. Wristwatches or stuffed animals are usually the best fit and this way one can easily monitor nannies or sitters while away from his/her home.

Since most nanny cams record just videos, it puts its users at a less legal worry as most states allow for hidden cameras in a home even without the consent of your guests. But if you have to install cameras in places like the private room of your nanny or public areas, then you have to fully answer to the law.

The set of interior home security cameras that aren't restricted by law are those ones that don't extend towards recording the audio of your guest without their consent. Usually, it is expected that if the audio of a nanny is to be monitored, you the homeowner should duly inform your nanny in a verbal and written statement.

The essence of this precaution is to prevent you from being prosecuted and you can easily use the same recordings as evidence in court if the need ever arises.

Major Functions of A Nanny Cam

Dual Functions:
Nanny Cams come packaged as a regular everyday household or office product. This will help it function as a teddy in a nursery or stationary holder in an office environment and as a monitoring device in both situations.

Timed Recording:

Security cameras are a great way to protect your property, but they can also violate your privacy if someone uses them against you without your permission. Since the invention of camera technology, there has been a huge level of advancement in this sector.

Though cameras started out as huge equipment’ just like the first generation of computers, they have so far continued to grow immensely in the past few years. The technology behind them keeps allowing for expansion, thereby letting the physical shape of cameras to keep getting smaller to allow concealing in any way possible.

With the innovation regarding the space they cover, one can easily disguise cameras and a plus side to this is that they get cheaper by the day. Literally, anyone can afford them now. But because they're cheap, most eCommerce stores have them on sale and anyone can easily make a purchase online and spy on every other existence around them.

Regarding the legal issues concerning hidden cameras, you most likely have heard all the scary stories, and so has all the Spycam manufacturers. With the scary stories come ideas to continue being creative in producing some of the most cleverly designed (and tiny) camera/DVR systems that can be disguised as anything.

And worse, you can be an unfortunate couple that gets to find out about hidden cameras being planted in hotel rooms and vacation rentals without a renter's knowledge. Or an employee who doesn't know he/she is being watched for more than 10 hours of work time each day.

With these stipulated concerns, let's look at the legal issues surrounding installing hidden cameras in a workplace or residential environment.

Dangers Of Installing A Hidden Camera

A British couple got the shock of their lives when they discovered a hidden spy camera in an Airbnb apartment they rented while on vacation in Toronto. Dougie Hamilton, 34, said that he found the camera concealed in a digital alarm clock that suspiciously faced the apartment's living room and open bedroom areas and this camera in question "can see everything."

Spy cameras have this feature where they can easily capture moments of motions happening in an entire apartment just being situated at a view of the whole house. As the Daily Record reports, the couple had only been in the rental for around 20 minutes when they spotted the creepy clock. Just like every other suspicious individual at first, Dougie shrugged off his suspicions but his instincts proved him right.

According to the report from the incident, they said "They didn't know if the owner had been watching them the whole time.” You can also be an innocent-minded individual but the clock facing where your bed was could be for something more sinister like a sex ring."

Generally speaking, it's totally legal to record surveillance video in the United States with a hidden camera in your home without the consent of the person you're recording. But before you place a hidden camera in your home, endeavor to research the laws within your state. This act will only help you to add an extra measure of security before embarking on this act.

When there’s no consent, that’s where employers run into risks. Technology is supposed to help employees be more productive at their jobs, thus increasing their competence. But employers can still provide that independence by giving employees the ability to turn the monitoring on and off in a protected space in the office, which helps deter feelings of invaded privacy.

As more monitoring devices including phones or video recorders, wristbands, microchips, and wireless sensors that measure employees’ brain waves are developed, perceptions toward monitoring devices keep changing by the day. Depending on what type of monitoring is being done, the complexity associated with security cameras and footages are to be handled with extreme care.

More complex devices with elaborate capabilities enter the market every day and help to improve matters revolving around employee attitudes, specifically around perceptions of fairness in the workplace. It would be naive to believe that companies don’t invest in security cameras for workplace environments and it is solely the job of the employees to strictly deal with whatever comes out of these monitoring process.

Employee Comfort Levels Toward Monitoring

Most employees find it unacceptable that they are being monitored during personal, non-work-related activities. Which is why contextual factors are important for how employees will likely react to monitoring, mostly with highly complex jobs requiring a lot of creativity and autonomy.

When someone has a flexible job, they expect the organization is going to give them the discretion to carry out their work. Some of these people will see monitoring as hindering their ability to do their job. They perceive less autonomy in their day-to-day operations.

But for those with low-complexity jobs, like cashiering, monitoring has the opposite effect on them because they are more likely to feel as though it helps them perform better. Monitoring only exhumes problems with employees when they feel it gets in the way of them doing their jobs. 

The most invasive of these monitoring devices are the ones employers install underneath employees’ desks that sense body heat to help tell how long employees are away from their desks. Although not all surveillance is equal, and not all people respond similarly to it.

At most, all employers should try to keep a healthy balance between taking advantage of new chip technology while respecting the boundaries of their employees.

5 Strategies For Installing Cameras In A Work Environment 

While it is also established that no company or business will curb their use of monitoring devices that they think will improve business operations, it is better to follow the steps below to successfully mount a camera in your business environment.

  • Pick the Best Hidden Spot:
    Ensure to place the camera opposite the direct line of sight. Watch out for the spot where the majority of the behavior you're monitoring is likely to occur when you are almost set up.

  • Watch for Sound Quality:
    If the sound is a priority for your monitoring, you need to position your camera out of anything noisy so not to drown the speaker's voice.

  • External Power Supply:
    Most modern hidden cameras are battery operated, but if necessary, ensure to place the camera close to its power supply. This implies that the plug and wires of the camera need to be hidden as well.

  • Network Your Camera:
    Connecting your camera to a secure wireless network if possible will help you easily access the broadcast video anywhere.

  • Shield the Camera's Eye:
