Masking of the camera depends on its size and model. Today there are many types of cameras that do not need to hide yourself, but rather to set down at the desired point so that its location did not cause suspicion. For models made in the type of fixture, bolt or door peephole. The disadvantage of such equipment is the price. In addition, cameras in the form of lamps are often used in supermarkets and can attract attention in the hallways because a lot of people know what they look like.
The easiest self-masking a camera of type "pin-hole", having passed entrance pupil. The use of such cameras is to reduce the diameter of the hole needed for shooting up to one millimeter. Model "pin-hole" can be built into any hole in the wall, ceiling, trim or the door trim. They also often feature in the distribution switchboards, panels or fire alarm systems. These cameras are disguised as buttons or screw heads.
Other camcorders can be hide using filter. It is necessary to make a hole in a dark corner of the wall, install the camera and close the filter. The sensitivity of such equipment is markedly reduced, and for filming in the dark it is necessary to install additional lighting or infrared diode on the outside of the filter.
Another variant of this camouflage is the use of mesh, and the ratio between the thickness of the rods and size of holes between them should be minimal, otherwise the camera will focus on the grid.
In disguise of the camera do not forget to hide it and its wires, if it is not the wireless model.
Also remember that it is important for you the image quality of the video, so don't get carried away with the camouflage lens.
Independently set the camera videomonitoring is quite difficult, so it is better to hire professionals–installers, which will connect your camera and hide it from prying eyes.
