Need help to find a good hidden camera

by john5493939493934 / November 8, 2009 9:10 AM PST

I am helping my mother who suspects my father of cheating on her to find a camera that would be small enough she could hide when she comes to visit me during thanksgiving that she could possibly catch him, also she did say she would like something you could possibly check from a computer, any suggestions ?

Try Checking Google...

Few here will jump in and help you spy on your relatives but Google should give you a lot of options for such a camera.

Hope this helps.

Invasion of privacy

This is a legal issue which should be resolved between the parties involved and not a group of random individuals whose only observation will be through the words of another person that is not themselves directly involved with the original fiasco.

only thing I know is Jaadu connect..

I can remote access any webcam hooked to my home computers, or any other computer than I have the root password to, with a handy little iPhone app called Jaadu connect or something like that. It's pretty cool for spying on people. But, I doubt you guys have an iPhone, so that's out. I think there are cameras and programs that can be used like this. They are generally sold as security cameras, though, and are a little expensive. Maybe if you just asked you dad? I mean, this seems to me like the kind of thing I wouldn't want to watch on a security cam, but, whatever...
