HOW DOES THIS Spy Video Pen WORK?
To activate this item's recording feature, press and hold down the silver button on the top, and once the red indicator light appears, release the power button. Wait a few moments, and the red light will flash red for a few moments indicating that the device is loading; the red light will stop flashing. At this point, your device is recording. Tapping the button will end that recording and put it into standby mode, where you can start another recording by tapping the button again or click the button twice to enter the photo-taking mode. When entering this mode, the light will turn blue, and the red light will blink each time the button is clicked to indicate a photograph was taken. Clicking the button twice would put it back into video recording standby. From any point, the button can be held down for about three seconds to cause the blue and red lights to flash together three times to state that it is saving its files and powering down.
To charge this device, plug it into a computer or powered USB port for 2-3 hours to recharge fully. To view your video and picture files, plug your device into your PC or Mac. No special software is required to watch your videos; use your regular video program or use VLC Media Player.

How To Set up Time and Date For the 1080P Covert Spy Pen Camera
The pen worked super well!
Great product for the price. Works very well, very ease to use. Quality of the video & audio, far surpasses anything what we were expecting from a small device.
Caveat: I have no basis for comparison. This is my first and only 'Spy Pen' (so far). I read that cheaper pens are unreliable. It's too soon to comment on that. I had difficulty learning how to turn it on and off. I followed the instructions, but had to spend a fair amount of time practicing with it. It also has a lot of features that I have not explored. It can be used to take photos and audio only. I have taken many photos accidentally while trying to stop and start the video. The interface is challenging. There is one button and one LED that blinks blue or green and stops. There is also a config file and desktop utility that I have not fully explored yet. I like the built-in rechargeable battery feature, but I wish there was a way to know the battery life. Can I leave it plugged in? I don't know. It is rather bulky. I think anyone who knows what a Spy Pen looks like could spot it easily. Others might suspect and that could be awkward. I don't know if smaller ones are available. I haven't found any and imagine they would cost a lot more.
Thanks for the review and we are here to help Monday through Saturday 10am to 6pm CST @ 1-800-292-7748 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have about using the other features of the device. The size of the pen can be concerning yes but montblanc is a pen manufacture that creates luxury pens of various sizes from standard to large and luxurious. Many of our clients will tell folks it is one of these style of pens. The beauty is it really writes which helps with the covertness of the product. I am sure as technology advances and rechargeable batteries get smaller and cameras and components get smaller the pens will too. Stay tuned because this industry is evolving daily. Our 720P video pen is a bit thinner than the 1080P model but its video quality is not as good as the model you currently have, so that will be the trade off. https://spycentre.com/products/spy-pen-camera-720p
Very good product. I'm a private investigator for 30+ years and wish I had ordered it a few years ago. I've ordered several other products from Spycentre and found their customer and tech support to be excellent.
Great couldn't have asked for better.!!
Thanks for the review!!
