Where to Hide your Hidden Security Camera?

Positioning Hidden Security Cameras

Hidden security camera represent a great way to increase the level of security in your home, office or business premises. Knowing how to best position one of these cameras for the best possible capture of footage and also low visibility to others is vital in ensuring the success of your device. The following will give you some simple things to keep in mind to ensure that your hidden cameras are working for you as best as they can.

Choosing the Right Style

This is vital for two reasons. First, it determines where you can locate the device. Two, it can mean the difference as to whether or not your hidden cameras are detected. If you wish to be able to record from above, which is great for cash handling areas in a business, then opt for a camera that is disguised as a smoke alarm. This will allow for a ceiling installation that will go un-noticed. If you are wishing to monitor a room in your home such as the living room, a camera disguised as a wall mirror is a great option. You are able to mount it on the wall, giving you a wide angle shot of your chosen room and it will blend in easily with another wall décor.

This is very important as poor positioning can mean that the camera will not capture some of the important footage from the areas you are wishing to protect. If you are looking to cover a smaller area, a hidden camera designed to look like a counter top object could be sufficient. If you are looking to capture a broader, more general area in a room, go for a wall or ceiling mounted option.
