Rate this product

Green Detective is an extra long spy camera that has the ability to be flexible and bend into areas that are more difficult to see. With the use of the bright LED lights, you will be able to look into holes and crevices to discover what is hiding in places that are normally too dark to view.

The waterproofness of this device gives you the ability to see under the water without actually entering it yourself. You can watch the fish swimming, view interesting rocks, and even look for an item that you had dropped.

There are other potential uses, such as to view a variety of bugs and animals that are hiding in bushes and trees. You can also check under furniture and appliances for missing toys, money, keys, etc. 


Anywhere that is difficult to view, you can use the Green Detective to help you.

How it's Different from Competitors

Green Detective is different from its competitors for a number of reasons. The camera itself is waterproof so you can discover what is beneath the surface of any body of water. It comes equipped with bright LED lights that will illuminate in front of the camera, giving you a better view. The extra long camera wire gives you the ability to see further than with other similar spy cameras and it is also flexible, giving you the ability to fit into even the most difficult spaces.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Keeping Camera Clear

    To keep the camera clear it is important to use it in areas that are not muddy, too dirty, or in water that is murky. Once there is mud or debris on the end of the camera lens, it will be difficult to see anything on the monitor and will need to be cleaned.

  2. Must Be Careful

    Due to the length of the camera wire, it is important to be careful that it does not snag on anything while extended. If you send the camera into an area that is hard to reach by hand, you may not be able to pull it out easily.

Concerns

  • Long-Term Waterproof Ability

    The long-term ability for this unit to be waterproof will depend on how careful you are with the camera's wire. It has been coated with what looks like plastic, and if that plastic is damaged it could affect the ability for the unit to withstand water.

  • Bright LED Lights

    Although the video on the official website shows the camera snaking into areas where there are animals (frog and rabbit), it is likely that a bright light will scare them off.

  • Camera Wire Durability

    The camera wire is meant to be used by bending and twisting it into many different positions. This will potentially take a toll on the wire, which can either kink in areas or damage it all together.

Critical Advice

The website shows this device as being a fun way for kids to prank each other by extending the camera underneath a door to spy on someone. This is concerning because children could get the idea that it would be fun to do this while their friends are changing clothes or going to the washroom.

It's important to monitor how your kids will be using this device, and make sure it is not used to watch people when it is inappropriate or invasive.
