The only way to get a true hidden camera is to use a pinhole lens that sees through a tiny hole in a clock radio, wall clock, fan, or other consumer device.
However, network IP cameras have huge lenses, and would result in a huge hole in the clock radio that would give it away.
So what are you going to do? Well, AXIS released the AXIS M7001 Mini Video Encoder and covert camera kit, which allows you to use a tiny, analog camera, and encode it to digital at the source, turning any wireless or wired CCTV camera into a Network camera for a low cost.
It includes a little covert analog CCTV camera that has a mini jack plug to not only send the analog video to the digital video encoder, it also powers the camera. Put it in an out of the way place, and you can get great video that would be stored to a standard PC.
The encoder is PoE compliant, which means it is powered over ethernet, allowing you to run just one ethernet cable from a PoE switch, to the encoder, and it will power it and the camera. Pretty slick, eh?
Then you can view the camera feed live on any Internet connected PC or smart phone.
The beauty of the M7001 video encoder is that any inexpensive analog wired hidden cameras can be hooked up to this device, turning it into a network IP camera. As long as you can power the camera, you can use any inexpensive wired hidden camera, allowing you full remote access, for the price of a SD card nanny cam, which can’t be viewed online.
So if you need a Nanny cam with internet access to watch what your kids, Nanny, or elderly parents caregiver is doing during the day, from work, you are S.O.L.
If you need to watch over your office, home, children, or elderly parents, and you can run a video cable from a wired hidden camera, now you can watch them when you are away.
The AXIS M7001 Mini Video Encoder with Covert camera makes a great way to have a network IP camera filming video, without being obvious, or order it on it’s own with one of our wired or wireless hidden cameras.
