A hidden camera or spy camera must remain invisible. That is why it is important to choose a good hidden camera. A (dummy) smoke detector including a camera is a good solution. As a result, no one sees that it is a spy camera. In addition, a smoke detector with a camera offers great ease of use: easy to install, a long standby of the battery and high-quality filming.
What models of smoke detector cameras are there?
There is a difference both in the type of smoke detector that is used as a housing and in the operation of the built-in spycam security camera. For example, most models have the camera at the bottom, but this is also possible on the side.
Smoke detector cameras on battery
The housing contains the camera, the recorder and the battery. Because a large battery has been used, it has a stand-by time of up to three months. This is an absolute plus, so this spy camera can remain unattended for a long time. The smoke detector security camera can film movement for up to 16 hours. This is more than enough to record evidence or to watch what is happening in space. The images are stored on a micro SD card. A 32 GB micro SD card is included as standard. This is expandable to a maximum of 128 GB. The reading of the micro SD card is done via a computer or laptop.
Smoke detector cameras with Wifi
The built-in WiFi module makes it possible to connect to the internet via the WiFi network. This makes it possible to approach the smoke detector from a different location via an app on your phone. Although this is a much requested functionality, we only have a few or no smoke detector cameras with wifi for sale. The reason for this is that a WiFi module needs a lot of power and the battery is therefore limited and the WiFi connection is often not stable enough for professional operation.
Resolution spycams in smoke detector
Good image quality is indispensable. Many hidden cameras show a mediocre quality. As a result, faces are unclear and there is a lack of good evidence. The smoke detector camera films in full HD or even in 4K Ultra HD quality. This is the best conceivable quality for hidden video recordings in 2020.
Another advantage of this smoke detector with camera: it has a night vision of 5-10 m. This also means filming in twilight or in the dark. It is of course important that the persons are at a distance of 5-10 m from the hidden camera. Important to know: this camera is only suitable for indoor use (not waterproof).
Taking privacy into account
It is of course not polite to spy on someone, but in some cases it is necessary. Such as in case of suspicion of fraud or fraud, but also in case of relationship problems (e.g. cheating). Only camera images can provide a definitive answer or certainty. You may not just distribute recordings, but they do serve as valid evidence. You may not keep recordings longer than necessary.
Installing a smoke detector with camera
A smoke detector must hang in a logical place. This means in the middle of the ceiling and not above a door, window or against a wall. When the dummy smoke detector including camera hangs in a logical place, no one will suspect that recordings are being made. Most smoke detectors can be attached either with screws or with an adhesive magnet.
The smoke detector camera is suitable for commercial or private use. This model is a dummy smoke detector (cannot be used as a smoke detector). From the outside, no one can see that this is a dummy model.
