Known for its range of diverse surveillance products, Swann is a well-known global frontrunner in security monitoring solutions. While all-inclusive security and alarm systems have long been the company's main focus, Swann has more recently ventured into the world of gadgetry. Swann makes self-contained mini spy cams for practical uses such as a private investigator recording an interview, a business professional recording a seminar or any other situation where clear audio or video recording may be crucial. Its small spy cams can also be mounted in your car or worn on your body.
The Swann Navigator is a portable HD video camera with a 140-degree viewing angle. Its small size makes it a good choice as a spy cam. It’s battery operated and weighs less than 3 ounces, so you can carry it with you wherever you go. This spy camera records at 1080p, so you get mostly clear images. The spy cam offers time and date stamping, and video is easily transferred using its included mini USB cable. The 8GB microSD card can hold hours of footage. It also comes with a suction mount, so you can attach it to a window, such as your car’s windshield. This model with the SD card costs a bit more than the same model without the microSD card, so if you have your own memory card, you can save money on your purchase.
Swann’s Economy HD Dash Camera is another option for those who are looking for a self-contained spy camera. Just like the Navigator model, this camera includes a 140-degree viewing angle, and its smaller size makes it a good choice for mounting to a windshield. Or you can set it on a bookshelf to capture video secretly. However, this device looks like a camera, so it isn’t easy to mask as something else. It includes infrared lights to help make nighttime video clearer. This camera doesn’t come with a microSD card, but you can use one up to 32GB to save hours of video footage.
Swann’s spy cams offer noticeably high-quality video output and are small enough to carry or mount. These pinhole cameras are apt for practical everyday use, whether you plan to use it for security or as a private investigator.
