Spy cameras are becoming smaller and easier to conceal. They can be hidden in objects that you’ll find in any home. With this smoke detector hidden spy cam, the miniature camera is hidden inside plastic housing resembling a smoke detector.
If you’re looking for improved home security, or a way to keep an eye on the dogs or children this can be a good choice.
When shopping for a hidden camera, you first need to consider where you plan on placing it. Using this fake smoke detector, you can position the camera in just about any room in your house.
The camera is completely hidden from sight. Even with careful inspection, it looks just like a real smoke detector.
The only noticeable drawback is the fact that this camera needs to be mounted on a wall or ceiling. You can’t simply place it on a shelf or desk. Though, the advantage to this is increased visibility of your surroundings.

With the motion activated setting, the camera automatically starts recording when motion is detected. This is the easiest solution for setting up a surveillance system in your home.
If you’re in the room, you have the option of using the remote control. The remote works up to 15-meters away and allows you to discreetly start or stop recording.
You don’t need to worry about blurry, grainy video. Even in low-light settings, you get clear footage recorded in vibrant 1080p high-definition.
Store your video on a microSD card. The camera offers support for cards up to 32GB in size. This allows about 8 hours of HD footage.
No batteries are needed. To charge, simply connect the camera to your PC via a USB cable. When connected to the PC, the camera doubles as a webcam.
You can record for up to 10 hours on a single charge. Thanks to loop recording you can keep recording, even if the microSD card runs out of space. The camera records over the oldest video files on the card, for continuous footage.
For concerned homeowners or parents, this nifty little device can help give you some security. The fake smoke detector is a great hiding spot for your new security camera. It’s easy to install and use, without any extra features to complicate the process.
