Some people know what a Nanny Cam is and some people don’t. If you’re in the latter group, you might just want to be careful if you’re up to things you shouldn’t be.
You see, a Nanny Cam is a an everyday looking object; something like an alarm clock, boombox, even a watch or car key remote. However, its not JUST an everyday object. Inside is a camera and a recording device (DVR), and some even have microphones built in. So, what? you say.
Well, if someone suspects you’re up to something, let’s say, cheating on your spouse, hitting the kids you’re supposed to be babysitting or stealing office supplies, the owner of the place may have installed a Nanny Cam. And, the next time you go into the office supply closet or have a clandestine encounter with you know who, they may just be able to get the video surveillance they need to bust you.
These handy cameras with DVR’s can be used for other good, too. We use one in our house to spy on our dogs when we’re not home. Most times, there’s nothing really to see. But, every once in a while, we get some funny stuff worth sharing.

Okay, let’s take a step away from our normal self defense weapon discussion and talk briefly about Hidden Cameras. Most people can sort of imagine, in a general sense, what a hidden camera is.
However, they can be so much more.
The type of units I’m referring to are actually an everyday object, like a wall mirror, wall clock or alarm clock. Inside the unit, the manufacturer installs a tiny camera, hidden inside. And, the better units also have a digital video recorder (DVR) installed inside and quite possibly, even a microphone. The original unit, the object, actually functions just like it should. The alarm clock tells time and will wake you when set But, it can also be placed somewhere were video footage is needed; some place where someone can spy and find out what’s going on when they’re not around.
Maybe you own a business and you suspect an employee is stealing. Or, perhaps you just want to keep an eye on the baby sitter when you’re not around. A hidden camera can do exactly what you want. After placing and setting the way you want it, you get the footage. You then connect it to a computer via a USB cable and quickly and easily watch what was happening.
