Over the last couple of years, spy cameras have seen an increase in popularity due to our increased need for safety and security. While there are a few cameras out there that people would rather do without, like those pesky red light cameras, most of them are for the protection of you and the ones you love. But finding the right camera is hard, so here are five different kinds for you to keep in mind.
1. Surveillance Cameras
Possibly the most well-known and widely used type of camera is the standard surveillance camera. Companies often use surveillance cameras to prevent theft, especially after hours. Parking lots ands banks are also places where surveillance cameras are widely used. Many people are even installing them in their homes for added protection.
2 Wired Spy Cameras
Some security camera systems can become quite expensive due to some of the technology that can be involved. Wired spy cameras are perfect where money is a big factor. These cameras are generally cheaper because it is hard to hide the wires aside from placing them in a wall, and all the wiring kits and wall mounts make assembly slightly difficult. However, once the cameras are in place they are quite efficient.
3.Wireless Spy Cameras
Wireless spy cameras tend to be the most popular kinds of cameras due to their flexibility and mobility with no wires to worry about. Most of the time wireless cameras come with everything you need already in the package. Because of this nifty little feature, there are no extra purchases to make which means you can begin installing right away.
4. Micro Spy Cameras
For those of you who don’t know, micro spy cameras are about the size of a quarter, yeah, a quarter. What is truly amazing about micro spy cameras is that they can shoot just as good quality as any other camera on the market and possibly better. They have also been known to shoot as well as many regular-sized camcorders. Since it is the size of a quarter, a micro spy camera can literally be placed almost anywhere.
5. Body-Worn Cameras
If you want to record something in person as opposed to using a mounted camera, then body-worn cameras are just the thing for you. These cameras are so small that you can put them in your pocket or even attach them to your shirt or hat giving you the ability to record anything and everything you see and hear.
Technology continues to grow with more and more technologies being developed every day. The five cameras above are just an example of just how far security technology has come in recent years. There is also a great deal to look forward to in the future.
