The Many Uses Of Covert Spy Cameras

Share

Covert spy cameras, a.k.a. hidden cameras, are small pinhole cameras hidden inside objects that people see every day around a home, office or business. Some of the more common of these are hidden inside wall clocks, alarm clocks, radios and other household products or electronic gadgets. Many of these cameras also have a DVR inside to record activity on a motion activated basis.

The purpose of these covert spy cameras is simply to catch people doing things that they shouldn’t be doing. In many cases a hidden camera is the only way to prove or catch their wrongdoing in the act.

Here Are Some Examples

The most common use is as a nanny camera-to keep an eye on the babysitter or nanny to help catch or prevent child abuse.

Lately another use is to catch elder abuse in the act. Several states have legalized the use of hidden cameras specifically for this purpose-to stem the flood of elder abuse cases that occur in nursing homes and home healthcare situations.

Business owners can keep an eye on their employees to prevent employee theft from afar, when they are not there by using a spy camera. Many of these cameras have remote viewing capability so you can watch what the camera sees on your smartphone.

Marital infidelity is an old problem going back to biblical times. It is one of the more difficult cases to prove which is why so many private investigators stay in business. A husband cheating on his wife or vice versa can be documented with a hidden camera.

Home security is another use of covert spy cameras. If you place one by your front door, you may be surprised that what you see. Many a burglar has been caught by the use of covert spy camera.

Today we’re doing a product review of what we call an all-in-one Alarm Clock Hidden Spy Camera because not only contains a pinhole spy camera but a built-in DVR with an SD card to record what the camera sees.

Hidden spy cameras are becoming more popular than ever before because they can do so many things and because of technological improvements and price competition they are better and cheaper than ever before.

This Sony alarm clock spy camera is typical of this generation and style of spy camera. It features motion activated recording as soon as motion is detected. This saves you the hassle of fast forwarding through hours of recording that is of no interest.

It also features motion detection area masking which allows you to determine designated areas in settings that will prevent motion detection from being activated. For example, if you have a small dog or cat in the house, area masking can preclude the motion detection feature from being activated.

“Everything is recorded on the internal DVR. You can view your recordings by using the included RCA cable to connect to your TV or insert the included 8GB SD card into your computer or any device with an SD Card Reader. This unit supports up to a 32 GB SD Card.”

A Sad Reality-Elder Abuse

Share

A recent television news program by a station in Toronto, Canada had several installments of investigations into abuse of residents by fellow residents and staff in nursing homes. And it didn’t end there! It discussed the fact that seniors in their own homes experience abuse at the hands of family or caregivers.

Read the whole story HERE.

“Elder abuse is a sad reality that is under-reported and under-estimated. It knows no boundaries. It may take the form of physical, financial, sexual, emotional abuse and neglect. Financial abuse, with misappropriation of funds or misuse of power of attorney is the most common form of abuse, but physical violence is not uncommon.”

The story showed that a surprisingly high percentage of abusers were family members.

Elder Abuse And Hidden Cameras

Share

Here’s a story out of the UK about elder abuse and hidden cameras.

You can read the whole story HERE.

Earlier this year the chief inspector for social care and Care Quality Commission in the UK discussed the possibility of using hidden cameras as one way to tackle the problem of elder abuse in nursing homes.

Elder abuse in nursing homes has become rampant with as many as 60% of all residents being abused either physically or emotionally, financially or psychologically. Using food as a weapon is common. With so many patients suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia it is difficult for them to verbalize what is happening to them.

And for opportunistic caregivers, they use that weakness as an excuse.

One of the only ways that you can catch caregivers abusing your loved ones is to use a hidden camera. That evidence is difficult if not impossible to refute.

Something that is as innocent looking as this Alarm Clock Camera as shown above placed in a room can cover everything that happens.

Hidden Cameras In Nursing Homes

Share

“First it was video surveillance cameras in infant nurseries. Now some families are placing them in elderly loved ones’ rooms in nursing homes, to spot neglect and abuse. And some states are making it legal.

The New York Times Wellness Blog has a fascinating report by Jan Hoffman about the new “watchful eye in nursing homes.”

Hoffman describes how one woman placed a motion-activated camera that looked like an ordinary looking alarm clock beside her 96-year-old mother’s bed in an Oklahoma nursing home. What she saw led to the Mayberry case.

Read the whole story HERE

“On Nov. 1, propelled by the outcry over the Mayberry case, Oklahoma became the third state — along with New Mexico and Texas — to explicitly permit residents in long-term care facilities to maintain surveillance cameras in their rooms.”

Based on the daughter’s videos, one aide pleaded guilty to abuse and neglect. The other appears to have fled the country. Similar scenes of abuse have been captured in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and other states by relatives who placed cameras in potted plants and radios, webcams and iPhones.”

Hoffman also reports that the New York state attorney general’s office, “which has relied on hidden cameras in patient abuse and neglect cases for years, demonstrated its methods at a national training program for state investigators.”

Colorado Police Officer Caught On Tape And Arrested For Child Abuse

Share

“A Colorado police officer was arrested after his ex-fiancee sent a video to his coworkers depicting his domestic abuse. The man, Jeremy Yachik, worked as a police officer in Loveland, Colorado, and his ex-fiancee Ashley Saint-Roberts sent an email to other police officers as well as to news agencies in the area with an embedded video depicting evidence of horrid child abuse. Although the footage is grainy, Saint-Roberts accuses Yachik of being the man depicted.

The rest of the story is HERE.

In the video, the man repeatedly kicks a child on the ground “because she ate carrots from the refrigerator,” according to Saint-Roberts. The woman also claimed that she was forced to release the footage to the public because she had sent it to the police chief and had not received a response. According to the lawsuit, however, Saint-Roberts claimed Yachik called her after she initially sent the video and said “Nice try … trying to get me fired … it’s not going to work,”

“Outlining her priorities for the Care Quality Commission (CQC), chief inspector of adult social care Andrea Sutcliffe said more would be done to involve members of the public and expert teams in the monitoring of care homes and other adult care services.

Among a series of proposals set for public consultation next year, the CQC intends to allocate ratings for every care home and adult social care service by March 2016 – ranking services as outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.

The rest of the story is HERE.

Inspection of services will be structured around five key questions: are the services safe, caring, effective, well-led and responsive to people’s needs.

The CQC is set to discuss whether undercover cameras and mystery shoppers – people posing as individuals looking for care for a loved one – could contribute to a positive culture of improvement while respecting the dignity of those in care.

Long Term Care Inspectors May Use Hidden Cameras

Share

Hidden cameras and mystery-shopper exercises may form part of a revamped inspection regime for care homes and domiciliary care in England next year.

New adult social care chief inspector Andrea Sutcliffe said she wanted to explore the role such techniques could play in uncovering abuse and neglect.
But she admitted their use would have to be balanced against the need for privacy and dignity in such settings.

The move will be considered ahead of the launch of a new system next year.

The rest of the story is HERE.

From next autumn, services will be given an Ofsted-style rating of outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate to mirror the system being rolled out for hospitals.

Confidence in the regulation regime has been shaken, but we have turned a corner”

The inspections will start in autumn 2014 with the aim that each of the 25,000 care homes, nursing homes and domiciliary care agencies will be inspected by March 2016.

The CQC can issue warning notices, fines and even close down services if they are failing.

Cameras Could Catch Illegal Dumpers In Ashland

Share

Officials plan to install hidden cameras around town to catch people illegally dumping trash, Assistant Town Manager Michael Herbert said Friday.
“TVs, mattresses, a lot of junk that’s disposed along that roadway. Stuff shows up there and never goes away,” said Selectman Mark Juitt, who first raised the concern earlier this month.

He said he sees big piles of garbage along the commuter rail access road near Dunkin’ Donuts on Rte. 135. Herbert said people also dump near the Howe Street landfill, but it’s hard to catch dumpers in action.

The rest of the story is HERE.

The town could fine property owners up to $300, but officials aren’t eager to fine the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, or themselves, since the town owns the landfill.

Instead, cameras will keep an eye on dumping hot spots and other secret locations to catch the perpetrators, Herbert said.

Police will monitor the cameras and only review footage of people dumping trash, Herbert said.

“The only people we’re going to pay attention to are the people who are doing something illegal,” he said.

Hidden Camera Used To Catch Elder Abuse

Share

A family is relieved after the woman who abused a grandmother at an Arlington nursing pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.

Mynez Carter, 84, was shown being roughed up in hidden camera video that aired in a FOX4 report last August.

Maria Acosta, 44, the worker at the nursing home, pleaded guilty to her role in the case and will soon be sentenced.

Monday was the first time Carter’s family faced Acosta in court and they will have the opportunity to give a victim’s impact statement after Acosta is sentenced.

“I want her to know how she has traumatized my family,” said Ruth Carter, the daughter of Mynez Carter.

Mynez passed away in Dec. 2012 after she was moved to another facility.

A state investigation into how Mynez Carter was treated by workers at Heritage Oaks resulted in a $137,000 fine for the facility. The nursing home paid $90,000 to settle.

Acosta faces probation up to ten years in prison and is free on bond until she is sentenced, which could happen within the next six weeks

Child Abuser Caught On Spy Camera

Share

“A 26-year-old man from Orange County has been convicted of attempted murder, torture and child abuse after he was caught strangling, shaking and punching his 2-month-old son on a hidden “nanny cam.”

Robey’s girlfriend Eva Ponce had set up a hidden camera in October 2011, because she suspected that Robey was cheating on her. Her camera captured something far worse: Robey tied a blanket around the neck of their 2-month-old son like a noose and swung him around. The tape also captured him punching, strangling, slapping and shaking the baby. He covered the baby’s mouth with his hand when he cried. He even taped the baby’s mouth and nose at one point. He punched his son in the chest with closed fists, the Los Angeles Times reported.”
