Spy, Hidden or Covert Cameras are very discreet CCTV Security Cameras used to capture footage in various environments and under different circumstances without being identified, detected or seen by the general public and they bring great benefits for businesses.
Usually very small and easily disguised, these cameras come in different shapes with different viewing angles and resolutions (e.g. covert, fisheye covert, pinhole and L-shape pinhole) and have a wide range of disguise accessories.
Uses of Covert Cameras
A Covert Camera can be used for a variety of purposes:
- to prevent theft and deter crime,
- to protect employees, customers and assets,
- to enhance operational efficiency,
- for employee, Health & Safety and customer service training,
- to detect vandalism, senior neglect, child abuse, harassment and another unwanted behaviour
- adding extra footage to your security system (covering blind spots).
Benefits of Installing a Spy / Covert Camera
Respect Privacy and Remain Hidden
Having the signs saying “CCTV in Operation” or “Video Surveillance” to respect privacy doesn’t mean that the Covert Cameras are less effective. They are still very efficient to prevent crime and also can be installed in a hidden and strategic place to capture the right footage needed (without showing their exact place, therefore remaining anonymous).
For example, imagine a robbery situation with criminals covering their face with hats to prevent being captured by ceiling cameras but being caught on footage from a covert camera installed by the checkouts as the criminals are not aware of where they are.
Discreet Security Equipment
Some people feel uncomfortable and unsafe when they notice extensive presence of surveillance cameras, as that can indicate that the place is dangerous or overexposed, and the aesthetics of some buildings and business (such as a very fancy hotel, for example) also requires more discreet security equipment, so covert cameras are perfect for it.
Small and Concealed
Covert Cameras, because of their small size and concealed application, are perfect for environments that should be hidden from people's view:
banks, commercial buildings, schools, logistics, healthcare,
hotels, casinos, art galleries, jewellery, factory, gas station,
retail, restaurant, parking lot, parks, stadium, airports
or any other facility
Having so many benefits for all kinds and sizes of business and premises, the request for security projects involving Covert Cameras has been on the rise.
