One of the most popular video recorders with audio and integrated spy cameras, or additional spy cameras that can be easily attached to the recorder, are the ones using WiFi Direct technology, or as we used to call them - WiFi Direct Recorders. WiFi Direct, for those who are unfamiliar, is a widely used technology allowing devices to establish a direct peer-to-peer connection and communicate directly with one another over WiFi without the use of a wireless access point or a router. All modern smartphones and tablets nowadays have a built-in WiFi Direct functionality that allows them to connect to other devices directly. The process of establishing the connection is rather simple—devices just need to support the technology and be close to each other. An added convenience of this technology is that many devices that use it have smartphone apps through which they can be controlled and managed.
The WiFi Direct Recorders available on the market differ by brand, quality, look and feel, and purpose. In most cases, you get what you pay for, meaning less expensive products tend to be made with lower-quality materials and won't last as long or perform as well as those made with higher-quality materials. We have chosen reliable brands to be part of our offering and are always open to suggestions. The easiest way to determine whether a spy camera recorder uses WiFi Direct technology is to browse its specifications. On SpyShopEurope.com you will find all the specifications of the devices on the product page and the bottom page in a pdf file. We usually use the phrase "WiFi" in the headline of our spy equipment to point out the ones using WiFi Direct technology to make it easier for the client to find the spy gadget he/she is looking for quickly and efficiently.
One of the best-selling video recorders with audio using WiFi Direct is LawMate PV-500 Neo Pro with a touch screen and compatible LawMate BU-18 Neo spy camera. This is one of the multi-purpose recorders used by investigative journalists, law enforcement units, and animal rights activists. It is designed for covert surveillance on the go thanks to the spy camera button design that can be easily attached to the outfit while the recorder can be placed in a purse or a pocket. WiFi Direct technology connects the PV-500 Neo Pro to a person's smartphone, allowing one to monitor the footage and control it by managing the start and stop and taking snapshots via the complementary LawMate free smartphone app. It is not unusual nowadays to see a person looking at their smartphone so you will be able to perform a covert operation by managing it through your phone. The complimentary SD card can serve as a backup to make sure all the collected evidence is well preserved.
LawMate PV-RC200HDW is another video recorder with an audio and integrated spy camera in an ordinary key fob design. It is also widely used spy equipment by many clients for evidence collection because the spy camera in a key fob does not draw attention and is easily operated either by a smartphone app using a WIFI Direct or by pressing one of the device's three buttons. PV-RC200HDW can be easily blended in with the set of keys and enable the user to perform a covert operation. As the PV-500 Neo Pro, it comes with a complimentary SD card to be sure evidence is not lost.
For those looking at more budget-friendly solutions that are also visually appealing, there are spy camera recorders like wireless phone chargers and Bluetooth speakers that can be used as surveillance in a home or office for private persons wanting to have control over what is happening in the place the camera is set. This is a fully functional multi-purpose spy recorder for discreet recording with an affordable price and modern design.
Finally, WiFi Direct technology is very popular in the surveillance niche since it allows easy direct connection between the spy camera and the smartphone without the need for wireless access points or routers. The WiFi Direct recorders come in a variety of brands, quality, designs, and purposes. It is important to understand that price and quality are often inversely proportional meaning that higher prices equal higher quality and reliability.
