Buyers Guide

BUYER’S GUIDE:

Secrets of the industry:

Please read before purchasing, considering purchasing, or leaving to another website. We are positive you will stay and buy from us and then return for further purchases after reading the following.

 

We understand that it’s very hard to select a hidden camera that will fit all of your needs, however we hope that after reading the following information customers will have a better understanding of what is available on the market and how SecureForLess stands out with our cameras.

We don’t sell hundreds of items made in China like other sites do. We know they are not the answer to our customers. and we don’t want to offer malfunctioning products that don’t last very long and are simply frustrating to operate.

We know that we provide our customers both the very best devices on the market and outstanding customer support to assist with any questions they may have. The problem is that due to the nature of the devices we sell customers don’t leave feedback/reviews about their experiences with us.

In an attempt to stand out and show potential customers who we are and what we offer we have written the following guide in order to ensure every customer will have the insight into our company and have the confidence to shop and return to us.

 

Standalone Built-in DVR Recorder vs. wireless (Wi-Fi) Enabled Nanny Cams

With us there is no need to select one over the other.  We combine them into one! As a result all of our devices have both features. We offer both remote view as well as internal recording.

 

Cloud cameras. Sounds like a great idea, right?  In fact it’s quite the contrary. The fact of the matter is that any person with access to the cloud, whether it be a worker, administrator, or maintenance crew, can, with little effort, view your cameras and recordings.  Manufactures in China, I’m sure, are very pleased to offer this feature to their customers. Just think about it. There is a great risk of buying a cheap hidden camera. In case of unwanted access to the recordings the camera will bring more harm than good. These aren’t cameras. They’re toys. We do not offer such junk.  

98% of all spy toys, hidden cameras and surveillance equipment is imported from China.

All the hidden cameras advertised on numerous websites are made in China.

Companies with beautiful websites that advertise a large variety of hidden cameras use drop shipping. What this means is that what the customers see is the same items on all other sites.

This is NOT the case with us. We custom make 90% of our products. We build and test them in our laboratory. Many custom changes can be done to the cameras. Try asking any other seller or hidden equipment website to custom make you a hidden camera, and see what would be their response.

 

Wireless vs. Wi-Fi

Other sellers will offer wireless cameras that work on 2.4Mhz or any other frequency. What they forget to mention, however, is that with these types of cameras anyone with a simple video scanner will be able to view it. As a result that neighbor of yours from across the street can watch what’s going on inside your house or office.

Many people have wireless cameras and baby monitors at their homes and workplaces. Unbeknownst to them there are others watching them.

Our cameras are all Wi-Fi enabled and thus are protected with the most advanced encryption.

 

Wi-Fi – many sellers offer Wi-Fi enabled cameras but they do not mention that their cameras only offer the b/g type. The most you can do with that is place the camera very close to the router. In many cases the Wi-Fi will not reach the camera and so the wireless feature is ultimately useless to the customer. Asking the seller what type of Wi-Fi his camera supports, in many cases, is also useless because their Chinese manufacturers will lie to them,  leaving the customers frustrated and stuck with reception issues and a useless camera.

Customers can do better. Customers should do better. We offer new and the most advanced technology and we offer step by step support for anyone with difficulties operating our devices.

 

More on Wi-Fi.

Many sellers will state their device supports Wi-Fi but what they forget to mention is that it’s not the “regular” Wi-Fi. It’s only directly connected to the smartphone, iPad, and IPhone devices. It’s very short distance (about 20 feet only.) How does that help the customers if they are out of their house / office and out of the 20 foot range? It doesn’t.

Our devices support connection to the router and from the router there is no limitation of distance. Customers can be in any part of the world with internal access and have a live camera view or view prior recordings.

 

Wi-Fi Setup / One router memory:

Other sellers will sell you devices that will have one router in their setup / memory option. W happens when the customer needs to travel with his hidden camera between a hotel, office, home, or vacation home? Should the customer configure and reconfigure his device each time he moves the device? This is the 21st century, absolutely not.

All of our devices have the option of remembering each new location (router configuration.) With this option the device can be relocated countless times, configured once, and store the setting forever.

Amazing, right? We agree!

 

High resolution misleading:

Sellers state that their cameras are megapixel cameras, and that it has HD resolution. Yes they refer to the snap shot/still image that the camera takes. Ask them about the video resolution and they will tell you that their camera does not support HD resolution but rather only regular 720x480. That is video quality from over ten years ago.

We support real megapixel video quality on all of our cameras.

 

Compatibility:

Make sure the device you are buying will support your computer operation system. As we stated before the majority of the devices other sellers offer are made in China.  Most of them don’t support the latest Windows operating systems.  Mac’s, in most cases, are not mentioned at all.

We support all operating systems for all of your devices. Both Windows and Macs. .

 

 

 

Audio:

Other sellers will mislead you in regards to this feature. Audio is always available but other sellers will try to charge you more for something they offer anyway.

We always offer audio capabilities. It’s always included.

 

Analog vs. digital:

Sellers will offer you devices with statements like megapixel, 720p, 1080p, HD, high resolution, and so on.

Customers should know analog cannot offer any of those features. Only the latest digital technology supports this type of high video quality.

We always supply with real megapixel video quality devices to our customers.

 

Computer requirement:

Other sellers will offer you wireless devices. What they forget to mention is that you will receive an additional small plug to insert into your computer.

What if customers don’t have a computer available? What if it’s turned off or is not Windows operated? What if the customer doesn’t want the computer to show the viewed video?

In these cases the customer cannot use this type of device.

Our cameras never require any additional device to be connected to the computer. In fact you don’t need a computer at all.

 

Stock:

Other sellers will offer devices for sale on their websites but when it comes to shipping the devises they don’t have them in stock. They then buy it from suppliers and either drop ship it or buy from distributors.

We have a US-based local stock. In the infrequent occasion that we are out of stock we make it on the spot.

 

Night vision:

Night vision light 850mn vs.940mn. Very simple 850mn will be seen in the dark. It will create a red glow. If you plan to activate a camera with this type of light installed inside, the camera will be noticed. The exact opposite of what is intended!

We use ONLY 940mn light for night vision. It’s completely invisible and has absolutely no glow.

 

Many sellers sell night vision devices. The problem with these devices is that they don’t have a mechanical IR cut filter and thus a permanent filter is inserted. The effect on the quality of the colors is so strong that during the day all the colors are not true and the quality is very low.

Make sure the pictures of daytime are real and are made from the same camera you buy.

We sell devices with only mechanical IR cut filters. The quality of video is always perfect and keeps the colors real during the day.

 

Many sellers will show a picture of a camera behind a window or a mirror. What they don’t show is that glass will reflect the night vision light. The customer sees only strong white light during the night time. No night vision. The camera needs to be located outside or the night vision needs to be turned off in this type of location / setup.

Don’t let nice pictures mislead you.

 

Port forwarding vs. P2P

Other sellers will offer cameras and state the cameras are P2P (easy to setup and configure).

What other sellers forget to mention is that only P2P technology is used on these cameras and no port forwarding is available at all.

The problem is that advanced users / customers need port forwarding options for a more complicated networking environment.

Our cameras are equipped with P2P and port forwarding! They are intended to benefit users of all types.

 

 

Motion detection:

Other sellers will state that their cameras are equipped with motion detection features.  Don’t be fooled!

All of their cameras do not use real motion detection. It’s not some magic device.  The camera is able to detect changes in color and sheds and react as if it was motion.

The problem is that whoever tried to configure motion detection know that after a few hours of setup and configuration customers still get hundreds of false alarms notifications. Eventually they disable this future and record continuously.

Cameras that use motion detection sensors have the same problems of false alarms using deferent technology. The result is the same. It’s all useless.

Using danced camera must be done only with continuous recording.

We offer both motion detection and continuous recording in our cameras.

 

Battery:

Other sellers will state that their cameras are operated by batteries. They fail to mention the length of active recording possibility. Honest sellers will tell you no more than a few hours .4 to 6 hours of recording and transmitting and then what?

Change the batteries, recharging, going and retouching the hidden camera…ridiculous options.

Using cameras operated on batteries will not provide customers the solution they are looking for. Only devices that are continuously connected to power are serious surveillance equipment.

We don’t sell hundreds of Chinese items like other site do, we know they are not the answer to our customers, and we don’t want to offer something that will do no good, and only brings problems and frustration.

We know we proved our customers the best devices on the market, and we give amazing customer support, the problem is that because of the nature of the devices we sell, customers don’t leave feedbacks, or write reviews.

In an attempts to stand out and show potential customers who we are and what we offer, we wrote the following, so that customer will have the knowledge, and we positive they will decided to keep and shop with us.

 

 

Standalone Built-in DVR Recorder vs. wireless (Wi-Fi) Enabled Nanny Cams

Cloud cameras, sounds like a great idea right ? , the fact is the opposite, anyone with access to the cloud, worker, administrator, maintenance person with little effort can view your cameras and recordings easily. Manufactures in china I’m sure are very pleased to offer this feature to their customers, think about it…

 

The risk of buying a cheap hidden camera  that in case of it being found or detected, will make more harm than benefit, and so our advice is not to buy cheap spy toys.

 

98% of all spy toys, hidden camera and surveillance equipment is being imported from china.

All the hidden cameras advertised on numerate websites, are made in china.

Companies with beautiful website who advertise large verity of hidden cameras use drop shipping, and so what customer see is the same items on all other site.

Asking the seller what type of Wi-Fi his camera supports in many cases is also useless because their Chinese manufacture will  lie to them, and so only the frustrated customer whose camera having reception issues is the only one who will suffer.

Customer can do better, we offer new and most advanced technology.

 

More on Wi-Fi.

Many sellers will state their device supports Wi-Fi, what they forget to mention is that it’s not the “regular” Wi-Fi. Its only directly to the smart phone, ipad, IPhone device, it’s very short distance, about 20 feet only, and so how would that help the customer if he is out of his house / office, and out of the 20 feet range.

Wi-Fi Setup / One router memory:

Other sellers will sell you devices that will have one router in their setup / memory option, and so what happens when customer needs to travel with his hidden camera between a hotel, office, home, and vacation home, should he configure and reconfigure his device each time he moves the device?

All our device have the option of remembering each new location (router configuration) and so the device can be moved, configured once, and keep the setting for ever.

Many sellers sell night vision devices, the problem with this devices is that they don’t have mechanical ir cut filter, and so permanent filter is inserted, the effect on the quality of the colors is so strong that during the day all the colors are not true, and the quality is very low.

Make sure the pictures of day time are real, and are made from the same camera you buy.

Port forwarding vs. P2P

Other sellers will offer cameras and state the cameras are P2P (easy to setup and configure).

What other sellers forget to mention is that only P2P technology is used on this cameras and no port forwarding is available at all.

The problem is that advanced users / customers need port forwarding options for more complicated networking environment.

Our cameras are equipped with P2P and port forwarding, and so all types of users can benefit.

 

 

Motion detection:

We offer both motion detection and continues recording in our cameras.

 

Battery:

Other sellers will state that their camera is supported by battery, well for how long of active recording they forget to state, honest seller will tell you that not more than a few hours 4 to 6 hours of recording, and transmitting, and then what… J

Change battery, recharge, going and retouching the hidden camera, ridicules options.

Using cameras operated on batteries (toys) will not provide customers the solution they are  looking for, and only device that continuously connected to power are serious surveillance equipment.
