PennyCam – Security Camera hidden in a Take a Penny Leave a Penny container

at 5:33 am. Filed under Cool Gadgets


This PennyCam is a great idea for catching crooks in the act. I guess the camera could be mounted in anything such as the corner of the cash register however mounting it in plain view disguised as something you expect to see. It is a bit expensive but one foiled robbery is all you need to make it worth while…

"I just completed my new hidden camera project called the "PennyCam" It is a security camera embedded inside of a custom counter mounted "Take-a-penny, Leave-a-penny" found in almost all convenience stores, liquor stores and gas stations. This camera shoots from below getting crystal clear video of those would-be criminals who wear hats and look down to avoid traditional security cameras."
