Sometimes, deterring someone from continuing an inappropriate action is just not enough. It is hard to take any sort of legal action against someone based solely upon suspicions. More often than not you require clear cut and undeniable proof that the person you suspect is actually performing the questionable activity. That is why a hidden camera can be so valuable: By simply installing a traditional security camera, the person or persons involved in the activity may now see that they are being targeted and will stop. If this happens the mystery may go unsolved.
When you find a hidden camera, such as these color motion detector cameras, you can be two steps ahead of the game. Motion detectors are used for a number of reasons: To activate lights as to not waste energy, to unlock a magnetic door when exiting, to detect motion for environmental controls, and so forth. Most people will not suspect that they may actually be walking by a color motion detector camera and having their actions recorded. These types of cameras are a great way to catch an unsuspecting perpetrator.
