First you should decide on the type you are looking for by using my easy to pick up guide below.
I have also dropped in some of our top choices for motion activated cameras at the bottom eof this page.
What To Look For:
Motion activated spy cams are perfect for improving security or, if you feel illegal activities are taking place in your home or office, perfect for gathering evidence.
There are many different types of motion activated spy cams, all suited for different tasks...
Outdoor Smart Camera and Light Systems
A camera combined with motion-activated floodlights.
Perfect as a deterrent and ideal for troublesome areas around your property.
Instantly and automatically shine powerful floodlights whenever motion is detected, and catch it all on-camera. Many cameras now come with sirens or warning voice overs.
Motion Activated Surveillance
You can really go the whole 9 yards and get a full surveillance system which includes the DVR, multiple night/day pan, tilt, zoom cameras, motion activation, flood lighst and more.
These are ideal to secure you whole home or business premises. Many DVR's will hold up to years of recordings for continuous surveillance without deleting. The benefit of motion activation is of course the recording only starts when motion is detected - saving space, time and money.
Covert Motion Activated Cameras
Hidden Motion DVR’s
They come in many different forms such as clock radios, mantle clocks and lamps...
All functions work normally and the cameras are usually invisible, video is high definition, images are recorded on a memory card and the systems are completely self contained.
Perfect for the covert surveillance of sensitive areas, nannies, caretakers or employees.
Personal/portable Security Cameras
These cameras can be set up anywhere. Simply place the unit in a desired location and turn it on. This discrete item is perfect for anywhere you need personal protection.
No VCR to set up, no software to install, simply place the camera where you wish to capture video and it will automatically digitally record fast-action snapshots or video when motion is detected.
Playback on your own TV, hook up to the computer and save your recordings. Easy to use and adaptable to many situations.
