Where to hide your Spy Camera at home

Published: NOVEMBER 3, 2016 at 4:43PM

Hidden spy cameras that are built into clocks and statues can be expensive. You can save yourself a lot of that unnecessary expense by grabbing cheaper spy camera and hiding it yourself, with a similar or better end product for a fraction of the cost. Unless you’re James Bond, these solutions should be enough to get you the footage you need.

Two-way mirror

There are so many ways you can use a sheet of glass or acrylic two-way mirror to make your own DIY (do-in-yourself) spy camera set-up. You may also use one way mirrored window film and place it over glass or Plexiglas.

You can have the most conspicuous camera in the world and place it behind a two-way mirror and no one will know they’re being recorded. Mirrored features in furniture or decor work great in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, hallways and more.

Create a pinhole behind something

With a piece of furniture or home décor you can make a DIY camera that’s a good as the pro’s. Pinholes are mainly created using a drill; many spy cameras are small enough to make the holes inconspicuous. Holes can blend in more in certain places if multiples holes are created in a pattern. You can hide a hole by place it in a shadowed area, such as behind something else on a bookshelf. There are drill bits that can cut through wood, metal and even glass. Making holes does not have to be difficult, you can place the camera behind a wicker basket and just move a few wiccas out of the way and there you have it.

Another easy object to make a pinhole camera with is a tissue box, simply poke a hole or two on the side with a pencil and it looks like well-used box.

Size of the camera matters

Having a smaller sized camera makes it much easier to conceal than trying to make your typical digital camcorder fit. Many spy cameras are small and fit into locations that would completely blow your cover if using a camcorder. Imagine trying to secretly record a conversation if you need to bring your recorder into each room with you, or if you need to quickly place it somewhere in a meeting room before people show up. Create multiple locations to drop your camera and you can more potential areas to record.

Take apart an already small camera to access the circuitry, making the device even smaller – this may allow you to get closer to your pinhole and increase the diameter of the viewing angles.

Concealed in Clothing

Hiding your spy camera in clothing is an excellent way to conceal it while remaining on your person. They’re perfect for recording experiences while at work, school or in your travels. If you need to send your children to school or a babysitter, it could help you determine if someone’s messing with your kids. Seams, pockets, and layered clothing can make for places to hide a spy camera and buttons are an easy accessory for hiding pinholes. Sewing skills come in handy here; sewing a camera into place the professional way to conceal and mount them.

Childrens Toys

You’ve heard of teddy bear cameras because placing hidden cameras inside toys is perfect for some situtuations. Toys can be placed just about anywhere if you’re a parent and can help identify abusing babysitters or nannies.

Some toys have hollowed out areas and can be large with multiple places to conceal a spy camera. Just one toy block or doll could easily hide a spy camera and help you keep your children safe.

Computers

Shelving areas with a lot of items and is a great place to confuse and install a concealed camera. Shelves can be found all around the home or workplace and they’re a popular location for employers to hide cameras. You may be able to find one item on your shelving or bookshelf that’s the perfect size or hollowed object to hide a small camera behind or inside. A dark colored hallowed out book with a pinhole drilled through the binding end is a slick way to hide your spy camera.
