How to Create a Moving Spy Camera


Spying is not just a profession but it can also be done as a fun past time. Many devices are used for spying. One such device is the spy camera. A spy camera can take either still pictures or record videos. Some cameras can perform both the functions. A spy camera which moves will be fun project to enjoy at home to spy on others.

  • A CCTV cameras and spy cameras are being widely popular and are available in every computer store. The spy cameras can transmit videos and images with the help of internet and we can store it in an offline site location. The spy cameras are available in various disguises. Some are available in the form of a clock or radio or smoke detectors or ball caps or even cellular phones.

  • In order to make a spy camera which moves we are in need of the list of items which are a radio controlled car, a wireless camera, a wireless camera receiver, a television set or a personal computer.
  • The first step is mounting the spy camera to the remote controlled car. We have to mount the wireless spy camera above the remote controlled car. We have to fix the spy camera firmly into the car with help of nuts and bolts. This helps to keep the spy camera tight to the remote car so that it doesn’t fall off. We can also tape the camera firmly to the remote car.
  • The next step is to program the camera. We have to program the camera receiver which is a wireless one and the spy camera and check whether the combination is working. There would be a set of LEDs present which are in series. They represent the transmission of signal between them.
  • The next thing is to connect the spy camera to the television set or computer. We have to link the spy camera’s wireless receiver with the television set and when the television is turned on we will get a video feed if the connections are correct. We can also get the video in our personal computer if the spy camera is IP based. We have to install the particular software for this purpose. We have to go through the user’s manual in order to know the distance through which the camera will operate. Mostly the spy cameras will operate from a distance of 30 to 100 foot.
  • The next step is we must know to navigate the remote car. We have to switch on the RC car. We have to operate the RC car by watching the television monitor. We have to move the RC car very carefully and we have to watch out for obstacles. We should also move it in such a way so that no one sees it. If anyone does we have to quickly move it. We also hide it to avoid getting caught.
  • A spy camera which moves with the help of RC car is an interesting project and it has many uses based on the purpose of the user. It can also help people to be cautious in case of any threat of burglary or theft in house. Certain TV shows use these spy cameras for capture real situations. Most of the cases the spy camera is used for funny purpose.
