As technology moves at the speed of light with new products and gadgets meant to make our lives easier, there is also a dark side. With every new product that is released in the market, there is a good number of individuals using them to hurt and violate others as well as engage in criminal activity.
One example is the spy camera. Hidden inside a wall hook is a tiny camera that records people in the bathroom, hotel rooms, and change rooms. Women in particular have been recorded while in the shower or changing without their knowing.
What adds to the terrifying scenario is the fact that these spy camera hooks are accessible and easy to purchase by criminals. You want to take a look at these seemingly innocent wall hooks.
Notice the double hooks. These are not usually the standard in coat hooks.
If you ever see this anywhere, please leave immediately and contact authorities.
You can find these creepy cameras for as low as $20 online.
The camera can record for 120 minutes continuously.
The hook is like any other found at a hardware store.
The camera records video and audio through the small hole at the top.
The wireless remote control works through walls. That is extremely scary.
Sometimes you can see the light when the camera is recording. If you see it, than you know you need to contact the police right away.
Based on the height of the hook, these are not nanny cams. They should also not be used in the workplace as it's illegal to record employees without their knowledge.
This year alone, these cameras have been found in public restrooms. Police are taking these new criminal acts very seriously.
