The best way of installing hidden spy cameras is to do so in plain sight. These days you can get video cameras disguised as all sorts of everyday items so that you can position one in any room without arousing suspicion.
Wi-Fi Day / Night Smoke Alarm
A smoke alarm video camera is one good option. Positioned on the ceiling, it allows for an uninterrupted view of an entire room. Even up close, it is impossible to tell that there is a camera inside meaning it is highly unlikely that it would be uncovered.
3G Digital Radio Camera
It is also possible to get a radio with a camera concealed within it. The radio works exactly as any other, meaning no-one will ever suspect that it is covertly filming a room.
Room Light Switch Camera Recorder
A high resolution camera can be hidden inside a dummy light switch. A processor allows for superior image quality which ensures that faces are easier to recognise on the resulting footage.
With many of these products, you can actually see live footage as and when you please, either through logging in via a web browser or even by contacting the camera via your mobile phone.

It is far easier to position a recording device in a room when it is disguised as something that would be there anyway. Why would an everyday item ever arouse suspicion?
AC Mains Camera Recorder
A wall charger is a great option for several reasons. These devices can be positioned in any room without it seeming untoward, they can record both video and audio and they draw their power from the socket, meaning they do not require batteries. They can even be set up to start recording when they detect movement.
Premium Flash Stick Voice Recorder
Flash sticks are commonly used in office environments and a fully functioning USB stick can also contain a spy voice recorder. They can be left on desks to record meetings, interviews and gossip without drawing attention.
Premium Pen Voice Recorder
These can be used in much the same way as the flash stick voice recorders. They can capture audio within a 20ft radius.
Luxury Keychain Voice Recorder
A small keychain voice recorder which can record up to 1o hours of audio and can be positioned in many different places including on your keys or bag without looking out of place.

The director responsible for the fictional spy surveillance thrillers Mr and Mrs Smith and The Bourne Identity has produced a true life tale for his latest film. Doug Liman’s Fair Game, which stars Naomi Watts, tells the story of a CIA agent who was targeted by the Bush Adminstration.
In 2003, Valerie Plame’s identity was leaked to a US newspaper in a bid to discredit her husband, Joe Wilson, who was a former US ambassador. He had publically claimed that the government had been lying about the presence of new spy gadget equipment weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
In unmasking Plame, the White House brought an end to her CIA career and put the lives of her Middle Eastern contacts in danger. The film depicts these events, focusing on the couple’s struggles balancing these developments with their domestic life, where they are caring for young twins.
The film has so far been well received. Writing in the Hollywood Reporter, Kirk Honeycutt said:
“Fair Game might be one of the best spy movies ever, even if it contains little skullduggery. Like a John le Carre novel, its story shows how things really work and how compromised lives can become when one must serve more than one master.”
