Hidden cameras are fast becoming a necessity as security is a very important issue that cuts across every aspect of life.
Security is a very important issue that cuts across every aspect of life. Every step we take towards ensuring our survival is a form of security or the other. At some point, insurance companies came to the rescue of people who face security challenges. These insurance companies are still playing a major role in the aspect of security. However, it is obvious that they are only good at managing a problem rather than prevent it. They do this by making a cushion for your loss so that you do not bear it all alone. The need to go beyond this saw the increase in the use of surveillance.
Surveillance can be traced to the time of the ancient man when members of the community took turns to keep watch at various guard posts. The use of cameras quickly took the place of guard post as cameras do not fall asleep and do not lose concentration. Some of these cameras include motion activated hidden camera and took pictures of anything that moves within their line of sight. It seems like as the technology made progress, so did the people who are always trying to outwit it. People came to discover that cameras had blind spots and used it to bypass many security systems. In a bid to up their game, technologist came up with hidden spy cams. These cameras are not actually hidden; they are just placed in oblivious places or objects you would not consider to be a threat. They are not your regular surveillance cameras that are up there for everyone to see. Sometimes, they may be in or may take the form of regular objects that you would normally not consider a threat. Objects like wall or table clocks, air purifier, electric outlets and so on. Let me not bore you any further but give you the top five benefits of using hidden cameras in my opinion.
Scares off intruders
The idea of being an intruder is being able to go about with what you intend to do while avoiding detection. When an intruder does not know where the camera is, he or she would reconsider if such intrusion is worth the risk. This will not be the same with a camera screaming “here I am”. People in general are not very comfortable with hidden cameras not to mention someone who has some sinister thoughts running through his head.
Bypassing it is very difficult
How can you even fight what you cannot see? Criminals who beat security systems are very intelligent individuals who put serious effort into creating a formidable plan. The foundation of their plans is actually the manner of your security system. They will shift their shape to fit your security system in order to beat it. One major aspect of security systems besides alarms are cameras. When they do not know where your camera is, they will not know the shape to adjust to in order to beat it.
Your blind spots are your secret
When I was talking about shifting shape in order to beat your security system, I did not mean that criminals are amoebas. By shifting shape, I mean that they will look for the weakness in your security system and use it to their advantage. They will ascertain the type of lock you use, your alarm system and of course the position of your cameras. The idea of knowing where your cameras are and the directions they are facing is to be able to calculate the blind spot. With a hidden camera however, only you get to know your blind spots.
They are more than a security measure
Most security systems usually ensure that there are no break ins or intrusion. They try to stop the act from happening and stop there. Hidden cameras on the other hand, takes the fight to the intruder. Going by my first point that they project fear into the minds of the intruders, you will agree that they do more than just stopping the act from happening. With hidden cameras, intruders will not even conceive the idea of robbing you when they do not know your terrain. The advantage of hidden camera is that it makes individuals uncomfortable, intruders inclusive.
They will ensure safety
You will not have to be afraid of somebody breaking into your shop or office anymore. Even if they are able to beat your security system, your surveillance system will still catch up with them. Unless it is a full-fledged robbery, you can be rest assured when it comes to security. Even in the case of a full-fledged robbery, your cameras will still gather enough evidence that security agents can use to catch those who did it. As for petty thieves, you will no longer have to worry about them. Once your hidden cameras catch the first few who dare, they will go back and warn the others.
Hidden cameras are fast becoming a necessity considering how wiser people are fast becoming. People are actually kicking against it so you may want consult the constitution of your state or country so that you do not go against the law.
