Smoke Detector Hidden Cameras in 4 Versions to Choose From
We offer a side view smoke detector hidden camera, super side view, a bottom view model and a 2 camera model. The covert smoke detector camera is not for everyone. It has special requirements. You must have access to the ceiling in order to run wire back to the DVR. Ceiling tile applications or access to the attic are ideal. You will then be able to run a wire for hard wired installation. Or you can install a transmitter or even install our small DVR with battery above the ceiling to be completely self contained.
Hard Wired for Power and Video
Just like all hard-wired hidden cameras, the smoke detector requires power and a video cable. We offer pre-made cable lengths as well as rolls of Siamese cable up to 1000 ft long. The video cable must go to a viewing and/or a recording device. People can also use CAT5 wire if they care to.
The smoke detector cameras on this page are hard-wired models and require you to run wire from the smoke detector all the way back to your TV or DVR. If you wish to have wireless smoke detector, click here
These cannot be used with batteries unless you have access to locate a battery on top of ceiling. Depending on the battery, you may attain 24 hours of operation.
Actual smoke detector may vary slightly from photo. Ideal for installation with ceiling tile or drop ceiling since a hole is required to run wire for power.
Choose Bottom, Side View, Super Side View or 2 Camera Model
Smoke detector cameras are available in different views.
- 2 Camera model -2 Pinhole cameras positioned opposite each other angled slight down so as to cover a large room when detector is located in middle of room.
- Bottom View - The bottom view model when secured to a ceiling will view straight down.
- Side View - The side view sees at approximately a 45 degree angle (see picture).
- Super Side View - This super side view sees at approximately a 30 degree angle. This is best for viewing of >10 ft away. We angle this camera to barely skim the ceiling so you can view 20-30 ft away.
The model you want depends on where it will be placed and what you're trying to see. For example, if you're trying to see a cash register or an employee at their desk the you'd probably want the bottom view or standard side view and then mount it very near your target area. The camera will shoot straight down at the register. If you're trying to view into the next room or hallway, you'll probably want the super side view. Occasionally people attach smoke detectors to walls. These will also work on walls, just make sure to view through the camera before you actually drill any holes or mount the camera. If you plan to mount it to a wall, then your best bet is the bottom view smoke detector.
