Hidden body cameras allow the user to discreetly place a video camera on themselves to record an interaction with someone else. Body-worn cameras come in various devices like watches, pens, glasses, key chains that look like your car's key fob and even small micro cameras that can replace a button on your shirt!
Each device has the ability to not only record video but audio as well. Each video is date and time-stamped and you can download the device’s memory onto a computer to use for evidence gathering. These discrete video cams are simple to use and don't stand out in a crowd.
Some of our body cams now offer hi-definition videos and have built-in memories so it reduces having to change out an SD Card. But you can still find models that allow you to use a TF card which is handy because you can quickly hot-swap one card for another and continue recording and download the footage at a later time. Each of these devices is battery operated and comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
This allows for limited downtime because these tiny cams can be charged off a USB port, so you can use a PC, Laptop or any powered USB AC power supply to recharge your unit. Covert hidden cameras are great to use for domestic situations, child custody cases, issues at work with a coworker, verbal abuse at home and much more.

Our pen recorders are some of our best-selling wearable tech. They have the advantage of blending in to any environment, while allowing plenty of internal room to hide the necessary cameras and rechargeable battery.
This 2k video recorder is a nice upgrade on our long-running HD 1080p model. With this version you get HD video up to 2304x1296 resolution at 30 frames per second. If you need a faster frame rate, it can do that, too, with an adjustment this camera can capture 720p at 60 frames per second. The snapshot feature is another excellent benefit, allowing you to take 4 megapixel images with a discrete click of a button.
This pen is fully functional so it will blend it with the board room as well as the showroom. Whether you are simply needing to do a walk through on the new job site, to record a contract signing, or perform undercover shopping, this little pen truly outperforms.
With a 1 hour battery life, you'll appreciate the ability to quickly recharge it from any usb outlet, and the fact that it records audio, makes this little camera a true best-seller. You can also save data space on the onboard memory card by activating the motion detection mode and having it only record when it detects that someone is in the room.
Our spy glasses are another top-level performer. These sleek, modern-looking glasses are attracting a lot of attention among private investigators. Just slip them on and press the left side arm for 3 seconds for an hour of accurate, 1080p hd footage. It comes with a second rechargeable battery, so you can switch them out and keep recording indefinitely so.
The real beauty of these is how easy it is to aim them. The pinhole camera in the bridge picks up an 80 degree view. By pointing your head at the object that you wish to record, you are able to capture a nice, clear view of the event, while still staying entirely present with the flow of events unfolding around you. This design also makes it handy for quick walk-throughs, whether you are looking at a property to buy or handling an undercover workman's compensation investigation.
With this one, you'll also want to pick up our 32 GB micro SD card for up to 4 hours of data storage. As with our other devices, the video is compatible with both Mac and PC.
Rounding out our top-3 best selling covert cameras is our Key Fob recorder. While this isn't your traditional body cam, it does carry nicely in the hand on a set of keys and blends in well in any environment. Leave them laying on the table, or lying carelessly about in the room for an instant surveillance kit or nanny cam.
This is another 1080p camera with room for a larger, 128GB micro SD card. This allows for 21 hours of full HD footage. This recording device has 65 minutes of battery life, thanks to the lithium-ion battery, and it recharges nicely with the included USB charger in about 3 hours. You can also set it in motion detection mode, so that it only records for 3 minutes when motion is picked up.
This is a highly versatile video and audio recorder. It is one of the only devices in this category that we sell that offers real-time footage. You can sit up to 50 feet away and watch what is happening in the room, thanks to the included app. This device creates its own WiFi network for communicating with your smartphone, making it an aggressive surveillance tool.
Whether you just want to capture key parts of your professor's lecture, or you need to protect yourself while on a first date, this fob is one that you won't want to leave home without.
This wouldn't be a proper spy store if we didn't mention one of our best-selling cameras for deep undercover work.
The button camera is based on proven designs used in law enforcement and other undercover work. It hides a camera lens inside a small black button, allowing this mini spy camera a perfect vantage point. One of the key benefits of this model is that it rides on the core of your body, creating a more stable image.
Thanks to the slightly larger size, (this entire device is only 2.5 inches tall, and an inch wide), it can hold 128GB of memory for hours of video. The battery life provides 90 minutes of run time and recharges in 2 hours with the included USB cable.
If you are looking for a low key body cam, this one of the most reliable.
