How to Hide a Camera


Cameras used to capture images while you are not present are meant to be concealed. Hiding a camera will depend on the size of camera being used. One type of camera conducive to being hidden in several areas is a pinhole camera. This type of camera is wireless, which means no wires are needed to transmit images or video to the receiver.

Things You’ll Need : Screwdriver, Wireless pinhole camera, Drill bit, Power drill, Rubber cement


  • Identify an object that the pinhole camera can fit into neatly. This might be a smoke detector, a speaker or child’s toy, for instance.
  • Remove any screws on the object with the screwdriver. Open the object and examine the inside to see where there is an available place to mount the pinhole camera.
