Protecting our home and family is the number one priority for most people, however, it has not always been possible to safeguard them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, due to work and other commitments, until now that is, thanks to the emergence of hidden home security cameras.
A busy lifestyle combined with children or elderly relatives to care for, means that we have to put our trust in child minders or carers to look after our loved ones in our absence, unfortunately allowing relatively unknown people into our homes presents something of a risk to their well being and our peace of mind.
Thankfully, largely due to advances in modern camera technology and superior smart phone and wifi capabilities, it is now possible to monitor our homes remotely or to record everything that happens and review the footage upon our return.
Hidden Cameras and the Law
Laws regarding hidden surveillance cameras vary from country to country and state to state in the USA. Generally speaking it is not illegal to install such a device, if there is a legitimate reason for doing so.
However, installing a hidden video camera in areas where people expect a reasonable level of privacy, for example in bedrooms, bathrooms and changing areas is strictly prohibited.
Please note that surreptitiously recording audio has different restrictions to video recording, if in any doubt please take legal advice before installing hidden surveillance equipment in your home or place of business.
