A covert camera is also called as pinhole camera or hidden camera. It is used as a surveillance camera of particular area or location without being detected. The purpose of covert camera is to monitor area by looking like domestic or commercial object without anyone noticing the camera. In usual application scenarios, these cameras are not easy to detect as they get blend into any background. Now a days, covert cameras are being introduced into market in several forms of product. The main function of covert camera is surveillance for security, and to match its needs the camera consist of passive infrared sensors. Covert cameras are designed from the principle of the pinhole camera. One of the main feature of pinhole camera is that it can take spherical or cylindrical angle pictures by curving the film. Covert cameras are normally used for surveillance purpose at the work place, or any other public place or in the home without getting noticed from anyone. 

Market Dynamics: Global Covert Camera Market

The global covert camera market is primarily driven by wide range of applications such as home surveillance, work place surveillance, and public place surveillance among others. In home security, the use of covert camera is the most innovative way of using security system. For high security it uses video surveillance and wired alarm systems. Covert cameras are available with remote monitoring tool that allows a person to view camera’s output from any mobile device connected with internet anywhere. Along with this, covert camera plays an important role in industry or work place surveillance. With the help of covert camera based surveillance system, approximately 50% the cost of surveillance can be reduced, compared to that of physical surveillance. The principle used in this system for detection is based on the guidelines of the human figure in motion (crawling, walking or running) and allows the system to portray the filming. Considering all these factors, demand for covert camera market is expected to propel in coming years. Moreover, in public places, like restaurants, malls or metro stations covert cameras are used for surveillance. These camera systems are helpful to watch and follow the theft and intrusion or robbery at all time as it transmits live video in real time. As a result of this factor, covert camera market is anticipated to witness prominent growth during forecast period. Additionally, the recording which has been done in covert camera is recorded in HD quality and real-time playback speed, which gives more clarity than the other types of surveillance camera, which is expected to offer significant growth opportunity to the global covert camera market.
