Top 5 WiFi Hidden Spy Cameras for 2023

What are WiFi Spy Cameras Used For?

Despite their name, WiFi spy cameras and hidden cameras aren't designed to actually be tools to spy on someone - they have dozens of normal and everyday uses, and are used by everyone from police to private investigators to moms and dads who simply want to know what their kids are up to.

One of the most common uses for spy cameras is for home security. Because they are designed to blend in to the environment, they do not stick out like a sore thumb like most traditional security cameras do.

Spy cameras can also be used to gather evidence - whether it is evidence of a cheating spouse, elderly abuse, or just to find out which one of the dogs got into the trash - evidence collection is a popular use for WiFi spy cameras.

Who is Using WiFi Spy Cameras?

Police and law enforcement as well as investigators often use covert surveillance devices to gather evidence of a crime, but they aren't the only people who use these devices.

Parents use spy cameras to keep an eye on their kids when they aren't home. Suspicious spouses may use spy cameras to investigate suspicions of infidelity. Normal people also use hidden cameras for general home security, so they can monitor their home or apartment while they travel.

When choosing a spy camera, you may not be sure where to begin, which is why we've put together a list to help you get started.

Spy Camera FAQs:

Q. Can I watch my spy camera on my iPhone or Android device?
A. Yes you can! Our free streaming apps are available for both iOS and Android devices. These apps are completely free to use, and there are never any live streaming fees or costs to use them. All you need is your existing WiFi connection.

Q. What if I don't have WiFi?
A. Our WiFi spy cameras are designed to be used with WiFi, however if you do not have or need WiFi, you can use them without it. Some of the functionality will obviously not be possible - like the remote viewing or motion detection alerts - but if you just want to record video to a memory card, you can certainly do that without connecting the device to WiFi.

Q. Do spy cameras have audio?
A. Many of our spy cameras do have optional audio capabilities. Most of those devices the audio can be turned on or off as needed depending on your particular recording needs. Before using a device with audio recording, we recommend checking with your local laws and ordinances to ensure that audio recording is permitted in your area, as some areas do not permit audio recording with video.

Q. Can spy cameras see in the dark?
A. Many WiFi spy cameras include the ability to see in the dark. These night vision enabled cameras use a special sensor that emits invisible infrared light, which allows the camera to see in the dark. To browse these cameras, check out our list of night vision spy cameras here.

Q. Can spy cameras be detected?
A. Our spy cameras are designed to be completely covert. They are designed out of ordinary objects meant to blend into almost any environment. While they are very difficult to find, it is possible with the right counter-surveillance tools (like a hidden camera detector) that they may be able to be located - but the overall likelihood is low.

Q. What is the best place to put a spy camera?
A. The best place to put a spy camera or nanny cam varies based on many factors. One of the most important factors is what or where you would like to monitor. For example, for general home security purposes, we recommend putting the camera in a main room like a living room or family room. If you are using it to monitor specific items however, like your computer, you may want to put it in your home office or den.

Q. What if I don’t have WiFi where I want to use the camera?
A. If you do not have a WiFi connection where you want to monitor, you can still use a WiFi camera, however some of the functionality will not be possible (like remote viewing or motion alerts). For easy of use, if you do not have WiFi, we recommend using a non-WiFi camera, which require very little setup and can be deployed in a matter of minutes.

Q. Should I pick a battery or AC powered WiFi spy camera?
A. When deciding whether to get a battery powered or AC powered spy camera, you should first take into consideration how long you plan on utilizing the camera. For short term use, a battery powered spy camera may be fine - depending on the battery type, it might last 8-10 hours, or some battery powered spy cameras can last up to 6 months.

For longer-term use however, or for devices that commonly have a power cord (like a clock), an AC powered device may be better suited, so you won’t have to worry about keeping a battery charged.

For the best of both worlds, many of our devices can actually operate in both battery or AC power, so you can use it for battery power when you need short-term portable use, or plug it into AC power for worry free operation.

Q. How easy is it to set up spy cameras?
A. We’ve designed all of our WiFi spy cameras and non-WiFi hidden cameras to be both easy to use and operate. WiFi hidden cameras generally take about 5-10 minutes to set up, while non-WiFi cameras are often ready to go right out of the box.

We also include detailed and easy to read user manuals in the box with all of our products, and have expert support staff available to answer setup questions as well.
