What is an IP remote recorder? 

An IP remote recorder is a type of electronic device commonly called a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) that uses IP (Internet Protocol) to store and transmit recordings. The most exciting feature of IP remote recorders, when it comes to spying gear is their ability to provide remote access to the spy camera attached to the DVR or integrated into the recorder. A vast majority of DVRs using IP are multipurpose devices, meaning they serve as a hidden camera on one side, and as objects for which they initially show their purpose on the other. According to our experience, they are commonly used among our clients for holiday home surveillance, houses while on holidays, and to legally monitor workspaces like factories, offices, and other commercial or industrial settings. On SpyShopEurope.com, many of the devices from this category can also be found under "Home & Office Surveillance”.

IP remote recorders for home and office surveillance

IP remote recorders usually don't require any prior knowledge, and they are a good choice for professionals like private detectives and for private individuals looking to monitor their vacation homes. They do, however, require time for proper installation of the spy camera to be sure everything will work as planned when the time comes. When speaking of installation, choosing the right spot where the IP DVR will be placed and determining if battery life is an important factor. For instance, if a client prefers to monitor a holiday home he will not attend for months, we would suggest going for a spy cam with a power outlet connection, meaning the battery will not drain since the device is connected to the power supply. One of the most popular for that purpose is the LawMate PV-BT10i, a fully functional Bluetooth speaker with an integrated hidden camera. The installation process suggests placing the PV-BT10i in a desired location, pairing the device with the smartphone using WiFi and the LawMate smartphone app, and then connecting it to a home router following the complementary manual. After all installation steps are completed correctly, the device can be easily accessed remotely from any location.

For more experienced users and professionals from the surveillance industry, we recommend a wifi spy cam that uses IP, and the most popular is the LawMate PV-DY20i. This is actually a do-it-yourself module so unlike other devices from this category it is not hidden in an ordinary object. It requires installation in a way your covert operation will go unnoticed and at the same time offers many possibilities to be integrated in surroundings thanks to its flexible ribbon cable. More experienced users will more easily find a proper location to install this wifi spy cam and more easily go through the installation process. This is why this spy camera is one of the first choices among detectives on different covert tasks to collect evidence. 

Hidden camera you can watch from your phone 

In general IP remote recorders are popular because of the ability to access the device remotely from any location in the world as long as the installation process is done correctly and as long as both your smartphone and spy camera have a solid internet connection. Their popularity also favors the fact that their design is mostly familiar, like Bluetooth speaker, phone charger, wall clock, power bank, and many others so it doesn't draw any attention and does not look suspicious.

When choosing spy equipment for a specific task, it's important to consider all options and weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each. While there may be more budget-friendly options available, it's important to keep in mind that they may not offer the same level of performance or reliability as more professional solutions. Finally, the decision is up to the individual or organization to determine the level of importance and investment they are willing to make for their specific needs.
