Professional Covert Cameras

Professional Covert Cameras

Professional Covert Cameras are ideal for when you need a mission critical recording and a mass produced spy cam just isn’t good enough.

What makes these cameras better is that they are designed by CCTV manufacturers and have the quality you expect from a professional system. You will find all the great features like motion detection, remove view and even push notification.

They are also very robust, normally with industrial metal housing and are built to last.

Ease of Use

All of our Professional Covert Cameras are relatively easy to use, but could be complex for people low tech ability. All of our WIFI units support remote view. Each model comes with a manual, and the manual is on the product page to download.

Professional Covert Cams Resolution

Professional Covert Camera resolution is normally 2MP, 4MP or 4K (8MP) and with any resolution you will be surprised just how clear the footage is as they are all good, but of course the higher the better. If you have trouble playing back the recording try downloading VLC Player and use that. If the unit has WIFI then you can normally log in via the app to view and playback.

Motion Detection

Most Professional Covert Cameras have several recording modes, one of which is Motion Detection. Setting this up will allow the unit to only record when things are moving. Motion detection will save you storage, but could cost you footage if the target is far away and doesn’t trigger it.


Professional Covert Cams normally either take an SD card, or they have internal memory. Each product that takes an SD card has it’s own SD maximum size limit so it’s important to check that. Another important thing to know it that most Professional Covert Cameras need a Class 10 SD card formatted to FAT32. Larger cards come formatted to other formats, so you will need to change it to FAT32 if you have any issues with the card. Some units will allow you to format it inside the device, and some will require you to do it on a PC.

Night Vision

Most Professional Covert Cams do not have night vision, it important to remember that night vision from a Hidden Camera compared to a CCTV camera, can be a little disappointing. Generally the night vision from a normal Hidden Camera goes between 1-6 meters depending on the product. It is also often a little dull due to the pinhole lens not letting enough light in. The issue is also amplified by the fact that the IR is hidden behind a plate and does not illuminate efficiently. Night Vision also makes Concealed Cams a lot easier to detect.

Remote View

If you are looking for a product that has remote view, look for Professional Covert Cameras that have built in WIFI. That way you can connect the required app to view from anywhere in the world. Please note most Professional Covert Cameras with WIFI require a 2.4Ghz WIFI connection. 2.4Ghz is the most common, so if you have difficulties connecting, please check your WIFI is 2.4. Professional Covert Cameras normally cannot connect to 5Ghz WIFI.

Push Notifications

Some Professional Covert Cams support push notifications. Push notifications are when the Camera detects movement it will notify you via the app. It is important to note that some phones and Telcos don’t handle push notifications well. This means push notifications are not always 100% reliable, but are still useful.


Some Professional Covert Cams have a built in mic, so as you record video, you also record the audio with it. It is important to remember that most Professional Covert Cameras with audio don’t perform as well as a Voice Recorder. So if super clear audio is needed, we recommend a voice recorder to go with it. Some models also support an external microphone or AV input opening up many options.

Two-Way Talk

Some Professional Covert Cams have two-way talk as an option, but these generally require external microphones and AV signals.

Wide Angle Lens

Most Professional Covert Cameras have a lens width of between 60 degrees and 110 degrees. When selecting a product, keep in mid that once you reach around 90 degrees, your image will show a little curvature, which is quite normal. Some curvature in the image is not normally a big issue, but keep in mind if the Professional Covert Cams has a lens over about 9o degrees you may see this.

Power Requirements

The majority of Professional Covert Cams use 12v DC, PoE, or other specific power supply.
