Home security cameras are less likely to be detected when disguised as everyday items inside of a home. This can help you to catch a maid you think may be stealing from you, a nanny who may be mistreating a child, or a burglar who does not realize that they are being caught on camera. If you are looking to hide home security cameras, here are a few of the best places to hide the camera.
If you are looking to hide a home security camera, using plants to hide the camera is a great choice. The foliage on both real and fake plants and trees provides enough coverage so that cameras can go undetected. However, if you are using foliage to hide cameras, make sure that the view of the camera is not impede if the wind blows the leaves of the plants outside. The last thing you want is to try to catch something and miss it because of the way the wind decided to blow.
Around Curtain Rods
Another great place to hide a home security camera is around the curtain rods in your home. Most curtains rods have a curved edge to them. This, in conjunction with the fabric from the curtain itself, can help to hide many of the mini cameras that are used for security purposes inside of a home. And most people do not scrutinize or spend much time looking at curtain rods, so even if it is a bit visible, chances are, the camera will be overlooked.
Inside Stuffed Animals
If you have young children in your home, you can place a home security camera inside of a stuffed animal. Just make sure that you position the stuffed animal in a place where it will have a full view of what you are trying to see and that your child does not decide to play with the toy. In fact, this option is so popular that many companies manufacture stuffed animals with cameras already hidden inside of them.
In a Bird House
When you are looking to hide a camera outside of your home, consider placing a bird house near your front door, backdoor or windows and place a camera inside of the house. Most people do not spend time looking inside of bird houses. As such, this is a great place to hide the camera. Additionally, the shelter from the bird house helps to extend the life of the camera and protect it from weather elements, such as wind, rain, snow and ice.
Home security cameras are just one of the ways to keep your home safe.
