Hidden Camera Tips
A hidden camera can be a great asset, especially if you use it properly. Here's some free information to help you do just that.
Don't announce you've installed a hidden camera. This may sound obvious, but it's a rule many people break.
Keep the existence of the camera on a "need to know" basis. The fewer people who know, the better.
If installing a camera in a bathroom or other normally private location (due to drug use, vandalism, etc.), consult an attorney about privacy violation issues first.
Take a cue from Realtors. Location, location, location. It's critical you install the camera where it can be concealed, but also where its viewing field won't be inadvertently blocked by people standing in front of it. It also needs to be fairly accessible for such things as retreiving the flashdrive, recharging the battery, cleaning the lens, etc.
Run a test once you've installed it. You may need to adjust angle, ambient lighting, height, focus, etc., to get the kind of footage you want.
Develop a schedule for accessing it without revealing that it's there. Obviously, pulling the flashdrive out of the breakroom monitoring camera during lunchtime isn't going to work.
