CCTV has been around for over half a century now.
They have become an integral part of our every day lives and as technology has advanced, the camera technology has become smaller and more powerful. This has allowed extremely small cameras to be manufactured that can be used to film people without their knowledge. These devices which are commonly known as spy cameras are either not visible to the subject being filmed or are disguised as another object such as smoke detectors, clock radios, tissue boxes and many other everyday items.
At Mission Investigations we understand that gathering of video evidence is key to any surveillance operation. There is a saying in the industry – ‘If it isn’t on film, then it never happened’. What this means is that without the ability to produce conclusive video footage to support other facts in case, then there is always room for doubt. Not all video evidence can be gathered by our surveillance operatives and this is where spy camera systems can be used to gather precious video footage that would have otherwise been missed.
Spy camera systems can be added to an existing CCTV set up (subject to capacity) or they need to operate in their own environment. Mission Investigations is able to offer the very latest add-on and stand-alone systems for hire. This equipment ranges from very small portable spy camera/recording devices, right through to extremely sophisticated static devices that can be added into room or office environments without arousing suspicion. Where cameras need to completely fit into the existing environment, then specialist fitting is then required to ensure that the addition of spy cameras does not noticeably change the ‘face’ of the room environment. Mission Investigations not only have vast experience in this area, but also have specialists that can undertake this type of bespoke spy camera fit.
Requirements vary greatly from case to case and because of this, there is no simple scale of charges for hire of spy camera equipment. If you need further information, then please contact us to discuss your circumstances and advice accordingly.
