Everyone loves James Bond Movies for many reasons. One of the main reason for sure is to get a glimpse into the future of high tech gadgetry. If you look back at the old Bond films you’ll see what I mean. From civilian flights to the moon to listening devices hidden in Jame’s room, it is actually kind of scary to see how much of that fantasy has come to be reality.

Hidden Spy Camera, Surveillance equipment from listening devices to video devices used to be the provenance of Private Investigators (PI’s) and the CIA almost exclusively. NOT ANY MORE.

Now ordinary citizens by the millions use hidden cameras to watch their businesses, check on marital indiscretions, provide home security, and maybe the biggest use is as a Hidden cameras to watch the kids and see what the babysitter is doing. Have you ever wondered how they work? The mystique stops here. Here are the basics on how they work.

1. Take an everyday common item that is smaller than an elephant and big enough to see with your eyes. The key is to make it completely unremarkable so to not arouse suspicion.

2. Insert a board pinhole camera. A board camera is a fixed lens mounted on a circuit board. The lens is either a pinhole or full opened lens usually a very wide angle focal length around 3.6mm, some of them even come with motion sensor to detect motion and turns on the hidden spy camera automatically.

3. Wire the board camera to a DVR or VCR using a simple RCA cable. Or if you want something wireless you need a transmitter to send the signal to a receiver.

4. Turn it on and Hidden spy camera is  ready to go.
