When it comes to home security you cant ever be too safe. For one I have procured a topnotch home alarm system that automatically contacts the police each time it detects a break-in.
Now each time my spouse and I go out on the town we hire a babysitter to watch our children. But she did not feel at ease leaving our children in the hands of a stranger. So to reassure her I bought a high quality hidden camera with a built-in DVR too.
Monitoring cameras are used for covertly monitoring activity in a particular area. They are made to appear like normal household items and blend in with their surroundings so that no one will suspect being watched.
The spy camera that we obtained had a built-in DVR and needed no additional set up other than to take it out of the box. Its DVR contained every function needed to start recording footage right away.
The DVR allows for video playback in 2 ways. First you could attach it to a standard Television set utilizing the provided RCA cable. Second you can take out the supplied SD memory card and download its contents to a computer using a card reader.
What I purchased was an iPod hidden camera DVR dock station that features an entirely working iPod dock. It uses Apples Universal Dock and works with any iPod. We placed it on top of our entertainment system to keep an eye on our living room.
It works as advertised and records good quality video for the price. Since it functions as a working iPod dock we use it to really play music each time we have guests around. It does not occur to them that it is also a video camera.
We bought additional covert cameras for other areas in and around our home and each one is a high quality hidden camera just like the first. We have not had any problems with babysitters but when we do we can rest easy knowing that we can monitor them.
