Are hidden cameras illegal?

In general it is completely legal to monitor and record persons in your home without their consent but there are obvious restrictions. It is not legal to record anyone in your home where they have the right to privacy, namely in a bathroom or bedroom.
 The same basic rules can be applied to the outside of your home as well. For the most part it is also legal to record in public places because the courts feel that a person does not have the right to privacy when they are in public places.

Do hidden cameras work in the dark?

Yes there are cameras that can record in the dark and in low light areas. What you would look for are cameras with a low “lux” rating, usually 2 or lower; the lower the lux rating the more efficient the camera will be in low light situations. If you need a camera to use in totally dark situations choose a model with an infra-red (IR) feature.

Do hidden cameras record sound?

It’s exceptionally vital to know that recording audio is not equivalent as recording only video. Once you start to listen to what individuals are saying a completely new set of laws apply. Both federal and state laws necessitate that you have a person’s consent before recording their discussions. Some states require the consent of only one party that is involved in the conversation where other states want everyone that is in the conversation give their approval. Before recording audio we suggest that you check your state and local ordinances pertaining to recording conversations.

What is the best place to put a hidden camera?

The secret to placing security cameras hidden is in a place that blends in to the environment where the recording is taking place; in example a hidden camera mantle clock would be best used in a living room where a smoke detector hidden camera would blend in best in a hall way within your home.

How and Where Do I Place A Hidden Camera?

Hidden cameras have an important role to play in many different surveillance systems, and they're regularly employed in both commercial and residential applications. The falling prices of the technology required for hidden cameras have made them increasingly popular. A hidden camera is only effective when it's well-concealed, though; this makes smart placement one of the most important parts of installing one.

If you'd like to add a hidden camera to your home security system, take a look at the following advice on how to place it.

Your home's main living area is one of the most useful places to install a hidden camera. Because most of the family's activity occurs there, a well-sited camera has a good chance of catching subjects of surveillance (e.g. babysitters) in that area. Living rooms are also large and complex enough to offer you a number of usable spots for a concealed camera. The entertainment center is one particularly popular choice. The presence of plenty of electronic gadgetry allows one more gizmo to blend in seamlessly.

Wide-angle video can be captured by very small cameras, often referred to "bullet" cameras. These cameras are hard to spot even if they are not concealed. Mounting one in an out-of-the-way place like a curtain rod is often a great idea.

Mini cameras have a pinhole lens, meaning they can capture useful video through very narrow openings. Most models are perfectly usable when shooting through a 1/16" hole. Virtually any surface that you can poke a hole in will serve to conceal this type of camera, and their wiring can be easily hidden if you put them on a shelf or in an entertainment center.

Speaking of shelves, don't neglect the possibilities offered by bookshelves. Some manufacturers even sell hidden cameras that come in a ready-made false book. This is just one example of the kind of specialized cameras available for use from concealment. Cameras can be seamlessly integrated into a wide range of ordinary objects, including clocks, mirrors, lamps, and other common fixtures.

You can use similar strategies to place cameras in other parts of the house. Houseplants and light switches make great universal sites for cameras in any room.

In children's bedrooms and playrooms, you have a few additional options to consider. Clock-mounted cameras work well on nightstands. Baby-monitoring cameras are often worked into stuffed animals, toys, or mobiles over the crib. If your kids are old enough to have a computer in their rooms, these can serve in the same fashion as entertainment centers.

Cameras designed for concealed installation come in an almost endless array of different styles. Finding a great place to mount one is more important than sticking with a single model. It's a good idea to scrutinize the areas you want to record carefully and pick out the best concealed spot for surveillance first. Once you know where you're going to put your camera you can buy a model that's going to fit where you want it. If you've already got a camera, though, invest some extra effort in making sure it's well hidden. A hidden camera that's easily found isn't going to do you any good at all.
