We’ve got top reviews of spy equipment and cameras from Private Investigating firms like ACES Private Investigations in Dallas. We spoke to top security professional Mr. Henry Zales one of the Co-founders at ACES about mini cams, surveillance, and top security technology gadgets.
Most of the time you need to be using a pin hole style camera to capture anything with a subject 1-3 ft in front of you. Ensuring the camera can capture audio if needed and being able to quickly adjust to left or right are important aspects of getting the right surveillance. Believe it or not, this takes practice and we recommend you test run scenarios before you attempt capturing anything. Henry Zale’s crew using pin hole cameras and he likes his investigators to be wired with two cameras. Why two cameras?
1. If one camera fails, the other acts as a failover.
2. If one angle doesn’t get the shot or footage, the other one increases the chances of getting the shot.
3. The chances of two things blocking both angles are slim to none.
Spy cameras can come in many different shapes and sizes. Here are the most commonly used spy cameras.
- The Pen Cam
- Coffee Mug Cam.
- The Glasses Cam
- Button Cam
Of course several factors depend on which types of cameras you would want to use in your surveillance investigations. ACES and other private investigation firms use a wide variety of expensive professional equipment that is sure to capture what you are looking for. If your first try and recording fails, you may never get another shot.. so ensure you select, test, and use the right equipment for the job.
