The Best Affordable Spy Gadgets and Cameras for Private Use.

Do you have a problem with any of the following?

A threatening neighbour?

A violent partner?

Do you suspect your child may be doing drugs?

Do you believe your Husband or Wife are being unfaithful?

Do you not feel completely comfortable with your child's babysitter etc, but don't want to sack them unfairly?.

Well, what better way to get proof or peace of mind, than to utilise some of today's very affordable spy gadgets.

A friend of mine recently bought a very impressive gadget for spying, a fully functioning ballpoint pen that can record up to two hours of both video and audio footage. The resulting quality is pretty good too, and comes across much the same as webcam, so more than adequate for any proof you might be obtaining of any of the aforementioned problems. This pen only cost him £28, which I think is an absolute bargain in terms of what it is capable of doing.

This pen inspired me to try and find out what other similar affordable gadgets are on the market, so that those of you who are in need of providing some evidence that is acceptable by various authorities if needed, can use this as a starting point for deciding what particular gadget would suit your requirements best.

I suspect many of these items will prove to be real eye-openers for you, plus may even give you a few ideas of your own as to what use you could make of such fabulous spy tools.

Spy Cigarette Lighters

Are you a smoker? If so these lighters are a good way to record images and audio footage that you might need in order to prove your case, without making it obvious that you are recording what is being said and done. my only criticism is that the bronze looking lighter to the right of this text is not an actual functioning lighter, so if the person you are recording asks you for a light, or notices you aren't using your own lighter to light your cigarettes, they may smell a rat if they are of a suspicious nature. Otherwise I think the concept is great.

Retailers described these items as follows:

Mini USB Lighter DVR:

"Videorecording:VGA recording, AVI format,640x480 resolution.Recommend player:storm player, km player,  and other multi-format support media player.

Spy Household Items

Prices vary enormously here, as some items record audio only, some record video, but not always in colour as some are in black and white, so a fair range would be to say prices here start at around $99 and go up to over $480.

Imagine how easy it would be to record conversations had when you were out of the room if you had a fully functional adapter plug in a nearby plug socket that was also capable of recording audio.

How about if you worry about the nanny or babysitters looking after your children, well the answer could be to have a boom box with a built in camera strategically placed on a shelf within the child's bedroom or nursery.

A desktop lamp with a built in camera can serve a multitude of useful purposes, either for keeping an eye on your office when you are away from your desk, or for using in your children's bedrooms to keep an eye on exactly what they get up to once they think you aren't around.

No-one looks twice at a pot plant kept on a window-ledge or shelf, so it is unlikely they will know they are being recorded by this clever little gadget.

Everyone should have at least one smoke detector in their home, but how about one that not only acts as a genuine working smoke detector, but can also record film footage, even in near darkness.

A clock on the wall is commonplace in virtually every home, but these clocks also have a hidden camera in them allowing you to film the activities going on in your house when you are not around. Perfect, as you could place one in each room to be sure of capturing the footage you are looking for.

How about a book on a shelf, so easily ignored, yet with a camera built in it becomes a powerful tool to record the evidence you need.

What better way to catch out a cheating spouse than having a camera secreted inside a functioning radio alarm clock by the bed. This is more than likely where any infidelity Will take place, so what better way to record it for the divorce case.

The vendors of these items gave them the following write ups:

How about a pair of cool looking sunglasses, these too capable of recording both audio and video footage, and guaranteed to be aimed straight, as when you look at the person, it records exactly what you are staring at.

A trendy smart tie! No, not this time. Actually this tie contains a pinhole camera that can record audio as well as colour video. Who would ever suspect that what you are actually wearing is recording their every movement and word?

How about a baseball cap, only it isn't just a baseball cap, it contains a hidden camera so that much like the sunglasses, wherever you look, that is what it records.

The cap has a secret lining inside that hides a high grade CCD video camera that shoots through a pinhole you'd need a magnifying glass to see. The special covert secret lining can also hides a digital video recorder. You have a completely self-contained covert video recording system like nothing else on the market! The camera is positioned in a place dead-center of the cap so the video recording records what you see with your eyes. No need to worry about aiming, positioning, wires, wireless connections or anything else since the camera wires are built right into the cap. Just put on the cap and you are ready to conduct covert video operations!

Well, the companies selling these products gave them the following write ups:

Button Camera (Colour CCD):

"This camera when fitted into relevant clothing looks like standard button, but in fact it contains a very high quality colour CCD camera for body worn surveillance situations.

G.P.S. Trackers

Worried about your child being abducted or your car getting stolen, (or any other large valuable for that matter?) Well these GPS trackers can tell you exactly where your missing child, car, or item is right now.

e.g. The Miniature Magnetic Logger on the right states the following in its description:

"The Miniature Magnetic Logger is a small, pocket sized device that receives signals from the twenty-four satellites orbiting the earth. The internal computer accurately determines the location of the device within 2.5 meters and records this data every second. With this data and the included tracking software, you can accurately determine where a person travelled, how fast they drove, where they stopped and for how long. The recorded data is displayed through Google Earth (free to download)."

*****

The Real-Time GPS Tracking Device states the following:

"Highly Sensitive GPS Trackers Works Where Other GPS Trackers Fail
The Spark Nano GPS Tracker is one of the smallest, most lightweight GPS Trackers available on the market today. This self-contained GPS Tracker requires no external connections or antennas, which means you can instantly track a vehicle or person completely covertly. Simply place the device in a glove compartment or similar discreet location and begin tracking. This extremely sensitive device features superior receiving ability for real-time location updates on any computer with Internet. It's enhanced GPS sensitivity using GPRS and GSM networks, allows it to work in places where traditional GPS Trackers fail. These features eliminate expensive and time consuming installation and makes it easy to install or remove."

and the GPS Matriax VIP/Asset Tracker states:

"The GPS Matrix is designed for VIP, vehicle and asset tracking. It is a portable and compact device that can be carried in the pocket, hidden in the luxury goods or attached to equipment.

When it comes to asset tracking, the key factors are optimized operation and scheduled reports. The GPS Matriax unique timer design allows it to remain in deep-sleep mode all or most of the time. It only sends location reports according to the pre-defined schedule, this in turn optimizes GPS Matriax's operation times ensuring users get the most from each power charge. This makes The GPS Matriax excellent for long term asset tracking.

Motion detection is important for the elderly or chronically ill, as well as keeping an eye on assets or vehicles. The GPS Matriax has a motion sensor built-in, which is the perfect solution for stop-motion detection. This motion sensor can also be set for movement detection for asset and vehicle security.

The GPS Matriax has a single panic button for VIP or Lone Worker situations. When an emergency occurs the panic button is pressed, the user can then make use of The GPS Matriax's hands-free speaker and microphone to communicate with the control centre or their emergency contacts. If hands-free, 2 way communication is not needed the Panic Button can be set to send out an alert SMS message to selected contacts."

Spy on your Computer

Worried about your child being "groomed" or targeted in general by Internet Paedophiles or bullies?

Concerned your children may be visiting sites that are inappropriate for their age group?

Is your child mysteriously texting from their mobile phone a lot, but deleting the messages before you have a chance to make sure they aren't the victim of text bullying, or worse?

The items to the right should solve all of those problems and allow you to monitor your child's activity and protect them accordingly.

Firstly the Keystroke Logger, the description given by the vendors is as follows:

"This device can be connected to a USB keyboard to record all keystrokes. Records chat-room, e-mail, instant messaging, passwords, Internet activity and anything else that is typed into the target PC. It stores a total of 2 MB of information (that's 2 million key strokes) and come complete with time & date stamped onto the logs. The internal memory is non volatile (retains memory even if there is loss of power). The device can be moved from computer to computer and is undetectable by spyware programmes. This product is ideal for keeping an eye on your children's Internet activities, employee computer abuse and for snooping on a wayward partner/spouse. The USB Key Logger is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, ME, NT, 98, 95 and Windows 3.1 operating systems

The previous version was not compatible with wireless keyboards, but this model works with most wireless keyboards other than Dell wireless keyboards

It should be noted that as laptop computers have a built-in keyboard, this item cannot be used in conjunction with this type of computer."

*****

Secondly the Computer Monitoring Software supplier describes their product as follows:

"Monitors And Records All Emails

Eagle Eyes takes virtual snap shots of emails as they are written and received. It doesn't matter what email program or service your partner or child uses. It doesn't matter if the emails are deleted right after they are read or sent.

Monitors And Records All Instant Message/Chats

Eagle Eyes takes snap shots of all chats that take place on the PC including all major instant messengers like Yahoo, MSN, ICQ, and more. Catch all conversations word by word.

Monitors And Records Your keyboard

Eagle Eyes captures every key typed on your PC. This is an incredible tool, because it captures all keys pressed including any text that is normally hidden.

Monitors And Records All Web Sites Visited

Eagle Eyes will record every web site visited on your PC for easy access later. It takes snap shots of the pages being visited and allows you to play them back with VCR/DVD play-like functions. Is your spouse surfing porn? Are your children playing online games when they're supposed to be doing homework? You'll now know! Surf through hours of your spouse's or child's online browsing in just minutes.

Do All Of This From Anywhere

Eagle Eyes allows you to use the built in feature which emails you everything it is recording, at whatever interval you wish. Does your children or spouse get home before you do, and you want to see what they are doing on the computer? Eagle Eyes allows you to do this.

Completely Hidden

Eagle Eyes can run in the open if you so choose, to discourage children from going places they shouldn't be, or you can also set it to run in stealth mode where it is undetectable. Eagle Eyes won't show up in the program files, running programs, task bar, registry or any other place. Completely hidden!

Monitor And Capture Every Program Run On Your PC

Eagle Eyes will log every application that is run on your PC. Is somebody launching your accounting software, instant messenger or trying to access your email application? Is your child running music downloading software or potentially putting you at risk by downloading and installing copyrighted applications? Not anymore, at least not without you knowing!

Easy To Install & Use

In less than two minutes you can have Eagle Eyes up and running on your PC. It's designed for ease of use.

Not Detectable by Anti Spyware or Anti Virus Programs

There's no spyware or any malicious files in our software, whatsoever. Nothing for antivirus programs to pick up."

*****

The Deleted Text Reader give the following description of the product:

"The SIM Recovery Pro is one of the most advanced SIM card readers available on the market! You can get your hands on this unique 'forensic' software, along with the specially designed USB SIM reading device which can read and manipulate information held on mobile phone SIM cards.

This easy-to-use deleted text message reader can display SMS text messages that have been stored on the SIM but marked as 'deleted' by a mobile phone. It also provides a permanent 'wipe' function for SMS text messages, ensuring that they cannot be recovered in this manner at a later date. If the phone user has placed their phone book on the SIM rather than the phone memory, then this information will also be retrievable.

A pay-as-you-go SIM will usually display 10-20 texts, a contract SIM will usually display 20-40 texts. The texts displayed are the last texts saved to the SIM, whether deleted or not. Success varies depending on the phone type that the SIM was used in and the way in which the phone user manages their texts. Best results are obtained from SIMs where texts are regularly deleted and where the phone has been set up to back up texts on the SIM."

*****

The Global PC Spy is described as follows:

"A fantastic and seemingly harmless device for quick and secure PC monitoring.

The Global PC Spy can be plugged into the USB port of any PC (of a time wasting employee for example) to quickly and discreetly install the hidden monitoring program. The Global PC Spy can then be taken away with you and plugged into your own PC for real time monitoring of the Target PC."

*****

The Spy Key Logger software programme is marketed with the following write up.

"iSpy is a computer monitoring / spy program that secretly records all computer activity--usernames, passwords, email, chat (such as Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo!, and AIM), facebook, myspace, into one easy-to-read database. EVERYTHING that is typed is recorded."

*****

and finally, the Spy mouse is described as:

"This normal looking 75g mouse has a condenser microphone in its belly and will catch up any nearby conversion. It will transmit when PC is switched on. It will start recording when the PC is switched off. So, beware even of the dead mouse."

Spy Signs

Who would ever suspect an exit sign of having a camera hidden within it, but this one does. The manufacturer describes it as follows:

DVR Exit Sign Color Hidden Camera:

" No one will ever be able to tell this normal looking exit sign conceals a hidden color camera and mini DVR with an SD card to record what the camera sees. The exit sign plugs into the wall to power the exit sign, DVR and the camera.

This hidden camera features motion-activated recording that starts as soon as motion is detected. With motion-activation, you won't have to fast forward through hours of uneventful recording. Also has Motion Detection Area Masking. For example, if you have a dog or cat and don't want it to set off the motion detector, you can mask the lower quarter of the field of vision so it does not detect motion.

You can view your recordings by using the included RCA cable to connect to your TV or computer or insert the included 8GB SD card into your computer."

Hi diogenes, you bad bad boy, (makes mental note to buy one of the other gadgets advertised that can detect spy equipment such as bugs etc).

Hi Jeff, Glad you enjoyed this, just beware, you never know where and when you are being watched ;)

This is part of why I live a transparent life.

I do not care who records me doing whatever. =D

When you are honest, you have nothing to keep track of do you?

Very cool hub and well done, must have taken a couple days. =)

immaNurse 4 years ago

Ok here is my problem. I have a 3yr old grandson that lives with his mother and her boyfriend. He has said and done some disburbing things to us that is very inappropriate for his age. Cuss words, ok I don't like but it is much deeper than this. Childrens Services have been contacted, but I would like to find something that I can send home with him and have a live feed. I need to put my mind and heart at ease.

Perhaps something like the nanny cams hidden in toys or clocks would work for this immaNurse. You could visit the home and give them as a gift but return at a later visit to retrieve the footage. Alternatively there is the schoolbag available I believe from Gadgetsguru.com which has cute cartoons on it etc. Even if your grandson is not yet at school he could still use the bag around the house for his 'special' toys.
