Cop Cam

251 Votes

Rate this product

Cop Cam is a tiny security camera that measures less than one square inch in size. You'll be able to hide it virtually anywhere indoors or outdoors and keep an eye on teenagers, neighbors, babysitters or potential thieves hanging around your property. Each camera comes with a micro SD card that'll hold eight gigabytes of memory, and aside from video, each device will record audio, too. When you've filled your memory card, you can upload all the audio and video on it to your computer.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Cop Cam is $49.98 plus $9.99 shipping, for a total price of $59.97.

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: buycopcam.com

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Choose Location for Cam

    Before you start using your Cop Cam, you'll need to pick a location for it, such as behind a television or in a set of bushes. Although this camera will record 140 degrees of footage at once, you should place it in an area where you think you'll be able to pick up the most valuable footage possible. Otherwise, you'll waste your SD card's memory on footage of trees rustling in the wind, leaves blowing along the ground, or something else equally insignificant.

  2. Turn It On

    When you're ready to use your security camera, turn it on by using the power button on the outside (for a more precise location, consult your instruction manual).

  3. Watch Audio and Video

    After a few days have passed, remove your micro SD card from your Cop Cam so you can upload the audio and video footage recorded on it to your computer. To do so, you'll need to insert a USB card reader into one of your computer's USB ports and then insert the micro SD card into the reader. If your card reader doesn't accommodate SD cards of the micro type, you'll need an additional adapter to insert the card into before putting it in the reader and viewing your footage.

Features

  • Tiny

    At a size of less than one square inch, this security camera is smaller than a baby's building block and isn't much bigger than a sugar cube. Especially given the fact that it's navy blue and gray, it's unlikely that even the most seasoned thief or the sneakiest teenager will notice it. You'll also be able to carry it from place to place very quickly whenever you want to move it.

  • Clear Recordings

    Regardless of whether your camera is recording audio or video, the recordings will always be clear, and the videos will play in high definition. However, each camera has a motion sensor so the camera will only start recording when it detects movement from a person, animal or object in the immediate area.

  • Wide Coverage

    While many home security cameras will only provide you with 70 degrees of video, this one will provide you with two times that amount of footage (140 degrees). Therefore, people and things won't have to be positioned directly in front of the camera in order to be recorded by it.

  • Built-In LED Lights

    Each Cop Cam contains six infrared LED lights that'll help the camera record clear audio and video footage at nighttime, which most people know is the prime time for intruders to be out and about. These lights are built into each camera, and like other LED lights, they may last for years, even if used frequently.

  • Swivel Clip

    Your compact security camera will also come with a swivel clip that you can use to hook the camera to your vehicle's visor or to your own body if you're running or walking. That way, if anyone hits you, mugs you or commits another crime against you while you're out, you'll have footage of it. Plus, if you're into outdoor sports, your camera will be able to pick up some great footage of your activities, if you attach it to your body.

Positive Points

  • Can Keep An Eye on Teens

    If you want to know what your teenagers are up to when they're home alone or while you're sleeping, simply install one of these cameras somewhere where they can't see it. When you watch the footage later, you'll be able to determine whether they have parties while you're away or if they ever sneak out in the middle of the night. You can do the same thing if you've got a nanny or babysitter in the house while you're gone, no matter how old they are.

  • Can Survey Neighbors

    This camera can be installed outdoors, so if you want to see what neighbor is throwing trash in your yard, regularly causing a commotion at midnight or being otherwise annoying, it'll help you with that. Furthermore, aside from spotting potential intruders outside your own home, you may also be able to spot one outside a neighbor's home, if your properties are close together. Then you'll be able to alert that neighbor or the police and possibly save your neighbor from being the victim of a crime.

  • Can Record Lectures

    Another thing this camera will enable you to do is record lectures if you go to university or college or regularly attend lectures on behalf of your workplace. You'll be able to place the Cop Cam in your shirt pocket and provide yourself with clear audio footage of the entire lecture later, which will help you learn and remember the material. Just don't do this during an official examination, as your school or workplace may have policies prohibiting that.

Negative Points

  • Can't Watch Without Computer

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to see the video or hear the audio one of these cameras has recorded with just the camera alone. You'll need to carefully remove the SD card and insert it into a computer. Not only will you need a computer with a USB port as a bare minimum requirement, you'll also need a USB card reader and perhaps an SD card adapter. For people who aren't extremely interested in technology, this might sound like a huge headache that's more trouble than it's worth.

  • Easy to Step On

    It's beneficial that the Cop Cam is compact since it can be concealed almost anywhere, but a disadvantage to its size is that it'll be easy to step on. If you put it somewhere outdoors in order to catch thieves and trespassers, one of these people could even step on it as they dash through or away from your property. If it were to get stepped on, you'd probably need professional help to repair it.

  • Not Waterproof

    Nowhere is it stated that this camera is waterproof, so while you can choose to put yours anywhere, you may need to bring it indoors or move it if it starts to rain (or snow). If you want to keep it outdoors but avoid moving it, you'll need to put it in a clear but protective case made of glass or plastic that'll shield it from snow or rain.

I Regret Buying it!

Finally Received

I too had to wait forever to receive my Cop Cam but it did eventually arrive. However, I have had numerous issues with telebrands and their inability to ship products in the past. The Cop Cam looks nice however the instructions are miniscule and horrible. You need glasses and a magnifying glass and written by someone who does not know the English language. Now I'm trying to find better instructions!

I have a Question

Ordered

I ordered the Cop Cam a few months ago and I received an email a while back stating that it was on back order. I have deleted that email by mistake. I was wondering if you could tell me when it would be available?

Simon STFU! You bully POS! That is one of the worst things these computers have allowed to come fourth from our ignorant population amongst us. Dumbass mouthy bullies with extra tiny genitals who couldn't whip a fly off a dogs ass, but are all big and bad behind a keyboard in their own safe residence. Simon you need your ass whooped and teeth laid across a curb while a boot stomps the back of your head. Then maybe you will learn to respect others.

Hi Tina, have you looked in your email trash can? When I accidentally erase an email I usually find it there and save it by returning it back to my emails. Sorry for the ignorant mouthy idiots amongst us like Simon Templar. He's definitely missing some brain cells and wasn't brought up by competent parents.

Cop Cam Ripoff

I paid for a Cop Cam on June 4th, 2018. I have never recieved it. I got a purchase/order number, but that was it. I got taken for $49.98 + $9.95 shipping. Don't make my mistake. Buy something like this from a reputable site.
