How to Install a Pinhole Camera


Pinhole cameras are tiny cameras with a micro lens used for surveillance and protection purposes. Video is captured via a receiver that is connected to a viewing monitor. They are small yet can capture a wide area and are often hidden in unsuspecting places or covered by some type of sign or object that deflects attention. For areas that don’t want a regular video camera or want less obvious recording, pinhole cameras are efficient surveillance tools and are fairly easy to install and operate.
