Have you ever wondered what happens when you leave the pets alone at home? Or whether your nanny is taking good care of your baby? Or whether your office is secure when you are not around? Is someone vandalising your property? If so, you should be interested in wireless spy cameras.

Wireless spy cameras come in two forms:

  1. A single integrated unit that combines the camera lens and the wireless transmitter into one package. Often disguised as an everyday household object such as a clock, light bulb, speakers etc.
  2. Separate lens and wireless transmitter parts connected by a wire. Meant for installation in tight spaces and where the observed parties may suspect that a hidden camera is present in the room.

Spy camera Applications

Home Security

  • Is someone in the home stealing things? It’s difficult to accuse family members without proof.
  • Do you suspect someone of vandalising your car or property? Maybe there are some unruly kids in the neighbourhood but their parents just won’t take your word for it.
  • In the case of a robbery or break-in, video footage can be instrumental in the police catching the bad guys.

Child Safety

  • Keep an eye on the babysitter or nanny.
  • Use your camera as a baby monitor.

Pet Safety

  • Are you worried about leaving your pets alone at home?
  • Do you suspect your pets are hurting themselves while you are away?

Office Security

  • Have things gone missing from your desk?
  • Are employees helping themselves to things they shouldn’t?

Remember that you should not use hidden cameras for any illegal purpose. Generally the law permits their use within your home or your office if you are an employer. But you should not point them at neighbours’ properties or use it in areas where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy such as changing areas or bathrooms. In the UK, the Data protection Act and the Human Rights Act may govern the usage of such devices. For more information refer to the UK Government’s guide to using domestic CCTV.

What to look for in a Hidden Camera

Which hidden camera should you purchase? This depends on where you intend to place the hidden camera. There are certain features you should look for in a wireless spy camera based on the application:

  • Hidden cameras for the home: Home video surveillance is very popular these days with advanced cameras being so affordable. Analyse the room you want to place the camera in and make sure you get a good view. Cameras with wide-angle lens are preferable so that you can cover as wide an area as possible. You should go for the cameras that are disguised as everyday objects – the Panda cam for a nursery, a Wall Clock camera, a Desk Clock camera or Computer Speakers Camera for the home office. Motion detection email alerts are essential so that the camera records only when required. Battery powered cameras will suffice for motion detection but it is best to get one that can work of a wall power outlet. This will give you the option of 24/7 recording as well.
  • Nanny cams: These cameras need to be either everyday objects or have separate lens units that you can hide along with other objects,say, on a shelf. Extended recording capability and battery capacity are desirable. Motion detection is less important here.
  • Night vision cameras: If you know the surveillance area will have low light, you need to look for night vision capability. Infrared (IR) LEDs that produce light waves that the eye cannot see are used for this purpose. Standard ring LEDs are okay but EXIR LEDs are better as they produce more light than standard SMD LEDs. Night vision cameras that have a real IR filter are desirable as this will produce truer colours during daytime.
  • Micro cameras: These are also called pinhole cameras. They are extremely small and hence will not have very high resolutions or fancy features. You will probably find that these have separate lens and wireless transmitter units. The transmitter units will be much larger than the camera part due to the built-in batteries and the transmitter components.

We have not mentioned the prices of the cameras in this article. This is because the selling price varies day-to-day and also depends on the deals available. You can click on the ‘View on Amazon’ link to see the current offer price and check out detailed user reviews.

  1. Is there any battery powered camera that support RTSP or MJPEG streaming like any normal IP cam?

    I really don’t want to use those vendor specific apps and cloud services.

    • I haven’t come across a decent one with RTSP or MJPEG yet. There maybe some no-name brand cameras on Amazon and eBay that can do MJPEG though.

  2. Your wireless spy cameras looking unique specification which makes these cameras different from others. I have been using TT520PW HD Wireless micro spy cameras of “Titathink Technology” and it’s really effective to use as it has some splendid resolution which gives me a perfect visual of the recording. Now I am very happy with this spy camera.

  3. Hi there

    are you based in London?

    I have bought three different mini wireless cam and had to return them due to their complicated functionality and are so obvious to notice. so, I am looking for something like ‘push and record’ no wires or complicated wires. and more importantly covert wireless tiny pinhole cam
    my budget is no more than £60
