Security cameras act as an excellent deterrent against crime when they are located in plain sight. However, many business owners also choose to install cameras in hidden or discrete locations in the office or business to help catch illegal or undesirable behavior. Cameras that blend well with surroundings and don't attract attention. With all of the incidents in the news about high-profile murders, and the increased awareness of thieves and criminals, having security cameras that don't stand out is essential.

Add to this the recent statistic, that 47% of retail "shrink" comes from employee theft, the need for cameras that are hidden, disguised or covert becomes pretty clear.

Standard security equipment can be very useful when hidden in plain view. Objects like smoke detectors, air ducts and large clocks are common in most buildings and can be used as an to hide security cameras. Install security equipment like small video cameras, audio recorders and motion detectors in these unassuming items, and you will be able to help keep your business safe from unwanted acts.

When hiding surveillance equipment in everyday items, it is also important to remember to hide wires as well. Keep employees and customers in the dark by keeping wires out of view. If intruders break in to your business, they will scan the room for wires that could be attached to surveillance equipment. Visible wires are easy to cut and easy to disable, so keeping them out of view is a simple way to keep your business safe. Depending on where equipment is installed, run cables through the wall, into the ceiling or underneath carpets or baseboards to help keep them safe.
