10 Types of Amazing Spy Camera
Here we are covering some amazing spy cameras for you to see how others can easily spy on you. You may shock if you see them. They are really unexpected for most of us.
1. Sports shoes hidden spy camera!
One of the amazing places you’d think to look for a spy camera probably is sneakers. Unfortunately, I should say these stealthy cameras exist. Actually, they look like regular shoes, but have a tiny camera embedded in one of the tongues. The camera points upward. Therefore, it gives the spy a bottom up perspective of the surroundings
2. Electrical outlet spy camera
You must have seen electrical outlets which resemble startled emoji. Actually, I should warn you that they can be spy cameras, too. The tiny camera is embedded within the normal electrical sockets’ holes in this product.
The rechargeable models have sticky adhesive backs so they could be positioned anywhere there is a wall to stick to. But other models actually plug in and go on top of an existing wall outlet.
3. Bathroom tissue box spy camera
This is a spy camera that look like a normal paper box or also toilet roll dispensers. The manufacturers of such inventions advertise them as pinhole free. So that they are really difficult to identify in this way.
Fortunately or not, these spy cameras blend seamlessly into a home setting.
But actually they are a bit bulkier than the other spy cameras. No one would suspect a thing. Just plop them down on a table or dresser. No worries.
4. Wi-Fi AC adapter spy camera
These cameras are concealed as your regular power brick/AC power supply. They plug into the wall and they look normal enough to be mistaken for anything else. No one would suspect a thing. This spy camera has its own wire but it apparently powers nothing. Actually they are fully functional camera. And they hide a deep, dark secret.
The very small camera for this spy camera is usually hidden in a tiny hole. This hole is between the + and – polarity symbols. As some models also have built-in Wi-Fi, so you could live stream the video to your phone or tablet via app as it happens. If you don’t need live streaming, it also saves on a Micro SD.
5. USB flash drive spy camera
This spy camera is much like your normal USB storage stick. But look at it again with more detail. A hidden camera is embedded in it. Detecting the camera is very difficult and challenging as it is not unusual for someone to carry USB sticks.
The tiny camera for this product is located in the posterior end of the stick, opposite the USB plug. With this form factor, this spy cam will blend seamlessly in an office or classroom.
6. Men’s shower gel spy camera
You can’t believe it, yes? I know it is really strange but it is real! They actually sell these now. It would be a disaster that someone watch you when you are taking shower. They’re cameras disguised as shampoo or body wash bottles. The top half of these sneaky little spy cameras is actually a refillable container for legitimate shower gel and the bottom half is the place of the camera circuitry. They are also advertised as water-resistant, equipped with motion detection and a remote!
This type of spy camera makes sure it will record only what you want to record. But it’s also something you should beware of it when you’re staying at someone’s house, or in a rental.
7. Smoke detector spy camera
It really looks like normal smoke detector but think again! Smoke detectors may just be the perfect hiding spot for hidden cameras because they are usually installed higher up in a room. These smoke detector spy cameras also use wide angle lenses. Also, this combined with elevated placement, could provide full room surveillance and maximum privacy attack.
You should be careful that most of these are not working smoke detectors. So, if you’re in a location that seems to have more smoke detectors than necessary, it may be a sign that some of them are hidden cameras. be aware!
8. Toilet brush spy camera
Well no one would think toilet sanitation device can be a spy camera. But I should say that bad guys would think about it. And there lies the charm of this little gizmo. Who would ever want to mess with a filthy toilet brush in a stranger’s house?
Most of these units come with a remote control and motion detection, too, so covert surveillance is entirely possible with these deceptive little things. These spy cameras aren’t found in many of your typical retail stores. But unfortunately, there are online shops that are dedicated to selling them.
9. Cellphone charger spy camera
This spy camera is plugged in to the wall, just like the power adapter. It pretend to be a regular USB charger. But it’s really a fully functional USB phone charger – with a few extras, like a mini camera and a fully functional DVR!
They’re really difficult to spot as these types of spy cameras actually do double as real chargers.
10. Clock radio spy camera
These cameras come in different shapes and sizes and they do play media files and have FM radios built in. You won’t suspect a thing if you are jamming to your favorite tunes, right? Clock radios usually have busy user interfaces with knobs, labels and sensors so the pinhole lens for these spy cams will be harder to spot.
Some models can even shoot in low-light conditions and loop recordings on a large capacity micro SD card. This means that all-day, all-night coverage is certainly possible.
As you can see, spy cameras now come in the most unexpected forms! Actually, there are many top spy cameras than the things we mentioned. Also, the number of them increases very day. If you’re a little cautious that there may be unknown cameras around you, there are tools that could help you detect them.
