Technology is moving at the speed of light with new products and gadgets meant to make our lives easier. However, there is a dark side. With every new product that is released in the market, individuals are using them to hurt and violate others as well as engage in criminal activity.
One glaring example is the spy camera. The camera is hidden inside a wall hook and records people in the bathroom, hotel rooms, and change rooms. Women, in particular, have been recorded while in the shower or changing without their knowledge.
Adding to the terrifying scenario is the fact that these spy camera hooks are accessible and easy to purchase by criminals.
#1. The coat hook on the wall looks inconspicuous and like any ordinary hook. But they are meant for a far darker purpose.
Notice the double hooks. These are not usually the standard in coat hooks.
#2. They can be easily be attached to any wall. If you ever see this anywhere, leave immediately and contact authorities.
#3. The video camera can be set to manual or motion-activated recording. This small gadget can be purchased for as low as $20 online.
#4. No one would ever suspect this coat hook is actually hiding a camera. The camera can record for 120 minutes continuously.
#5. The camera comes with a charger and transfer cable while the hook is like any other found at a hardware store.
#6. The hidden camera wall hooks come in standard black and white. The camera records video and audio through the small hole at the top.
#7. Add to the creepy factor, these wireless cameras can be recorded remotely. The wireless remote control works through walls.
#8. Notice when it’s set somewhere in a room that is out of place. Sometimes you can see the light when the camera is recording.
#9. Makers are selling them as a safety tool for home and business. Based on the height of the hook, these are not nanny cams.
#10. This is a serious threat to anyone. This year alone, these cameras have been found in public restrooms. Police are taking this new criminal act very seriously.
