How to Hide a Camera

Hidden cameras have an undeniable value that they add to our lives and can be used in many ways. The trusty old nanny cam, for one, can be used to establish the kind of care that your children or even your parents in an old age home are getting when you are not around.

The trick comes in when you want to make sure that your camera is properly disguised. But there is light at the end of the tunnel though, because if you can image it, then it’s probably plausible due to the fact that cameras can be hidden in plain sight these days if you go about it the right way.

There are a few steps that you need to follow in order to successfully install a hidden camera of your own:

Step 1

Find a sensible spot where you want to place the camera, make sure that it will cover the entire area that you want to record and that you have all angles covered.

Step 2

Make sure that the lighting in the area will be sufficient. You either want to choose a spot that has constant good light or have a camera that can really record great quality footage in low light settings.

Step 3

Now choose an object with which you want to disguise your camera such as a hollow plant stand or even a hollowed out book cover. You’ll want to drill a neat small hole through the object where the camera lens can peep through. Now you’ll place the camera lens flush to the hole and then simply place the “disguised” camera in the area where you see fit, it’s as easy as that.

That being said, here are a few tips on hiding cameras in different rooms within your home:

1. In the Bedroom

Installing a hidden camera in the bedroom is a great idea if you suspect that your spouse might be cheating on you.
A great spot for a hidden camera in the bedroom is the nightstand and concealing the camera in something like an alarm clock.

Curtain rods are also great for concealing cameras in and give you an aerial view of things.

2. In the Living Room

The living room is a wide open playing field for hiding cameras and because it’s essentially a family room you can place in in just about anything without it looking suspicious.

Mirrors are a great way of disguising cameras, place a peephole camera disguised as a decorative ornament on a mirror and use it as a watchful eye.

Lamps can be used as camera hiding spots by taking out the bulb and replacing it with a spy camera.

Light Switches are also a great hiding spot for tiny hidden cameras.

3. In the Kitchen

The kitchen often times has items standing around on the counter tops and placing a hidden camera here would be a very good idea.

Hidden Alarm Clock Cameras are a great addition to the kitchen counter top.

Hidden Camera Coffee mugs really do exists and what better place to place them in than the kitchen?

Wherever you decide to place your camera, just remember that it’s essential that your hidden camera stays…well HIDDEN. It should always be flush with whatever you disguise it in and shouldn’t look out of place. Disguise your camera in everyday items that are always around the house because honestly, nothing would look more suspicious than a brand new standing lamp in the kitchen that has no obvious purpose.
