Body worn cameras can be used for both overt and covert surveillance. These covert systems are becoming increasingly more popular in recent times for a number of reasons and our range of body worn cameras are tried and tested in numerous scenarios.
Hidden body worn cameras are either 1 piece systems, while others are 2 piece systems – usually a camera with a button lens and a separate digital recorder.
The 2 part body worn camera systems are usually for covert surveillance operations and are a favourite of mystery shoppers, private investigators and journalists etc. They will consist of a small handheld digital video recording unit, which will normally be stored in an inside jacket pocket or a bag for example, you would have a short cable running to a button camera which could be hidden about your clothing somewhere.
The 1 piece body worn camera units are for overt surveillance operations and are commonly worn by police officers and security staff etc. These overt body cameras are designed to immediately alert the subject that they are being recorded and so provide safety for the subject and the body camera wearer.

How Body Worn Cameras Work
Body worn cameras serve two main purposes. One area of use is openly showing people that you are recording their activity as a way of protection by preventing certain behaviours, such as how cyclists and car drivers currently use cameras.
But the main use of most of the body worn cameras that we stock and sell is for covert surveillance. Therefore these body worn cameras have been designed to be expertly hidden in items such as headphones, key-fobs or necklaces. More popular for professional use are the button hole cameras that can be worn with clothing without raising suspicion in any way.
The type of body worn camera you choose will depend on what you wish to capture. Often hidden spy cameras are used by employers or homeowners or spouses to monitor activity. Spy cameras are also used to capture evidence against others for a number of reasons.
Body Worn Cameras record video and audio in high resolution and can be set up to record on demand, or when activated by motion when it detects movement in its range. This saves the need to record 24/7.
Which Body Worn Cameras to Choose?
The type of body worn cameras you choose will greatly depend on where and how you will use them. Also how you wish to control and view what your camera records.
