Hidden cameras are ideal security products for both home and office and have built in DVRs so your customers don’t need to hook up to a DVR player to record. A good hidden camera gives your customers an inside view of what’s going on when they aren’t around. As a Safety Technology dealer, these are products you are going to want to offer to your customers. Hidden cameras with built-in DVRs are among the hottest security devices on the market today.
DVR Technology Explained
A DVR is a digital video recorder capable of recording whatever information is sent to it. In the case of a hidden camera with built-in DVR, that information is the video feed captured by the camera itself. That means a hidden camera with a built-in DVR is more than just a real-time monitoring device. It is also a way to capture information that can be stored for later viewing and retrieval.
As a dealer, you might be wondering what the market for these kinds of products is. We can tell you that it is quite strong. People want more than just real-time surveillance devices that require they be paying attention around the clock. They want devices they can check later on. That is what a hidden camera with a built-in DVR offers.
One of the most popular uses for these products is to keep track of what’s happening at home when a person is away at work. You might call it a ‘nanny cam’ if you were using it to keep track of the babysitter.
A well-placed camera records activity in whatever room you place it. Let’s say you believe the babysitter is not doing his or her job to your satisfaction. A hidden camera with a built-in DVR will reveal whether your suspicions are correct or not. Even when there is no babysitter involved, you can use one of these cameras to keep track of your pets, your kids, and even contractors who might be in your home while you are not there.
Built-In DVRs Provide Evidence
Another reason people love hidden cameras with built-in DVRs is the simple fact that these handy little devices create evidence. Every time the camera is activated, it digitally records and saves information. That information can be retrieved and viewed using a PC. It can be stored to an external device for archival purposes.
Now, let us assume one of your customers is unfortunate enough to be a burglary victim. A series of two or three hidden cameras with built-in DVRs could provide enough video footage for police investigators to track down a suspect. The beauty of these products is that they are hidden. Burglars do not know they are being recorded, so they don’t necessarily make an effort to conceal their identities.
More than one burglary case has been cracked with the use of home video recorded by a hidden camera. Not only does such evidence help police make arrests, but it is also very useful in court. It’s hard to claim you didn’t do it when your face is clear to see on video footage.

The ‘Hidden’ in Hidden Cameras
You might be wondering why hidden cameras with built-in DVRs are so popular. Part of it is the DVR technology; the other part is the sheer pleasure that comes from using a stealth security device to protect a home or office. That is where the ‘hidden’ portion of hidden cameras comes in.
Each of the products in this category is designed to look like something completely innocuous. For example, our Smoke Detector HD Hidden Spy Camera looks just like any standard smoke detector. It looks so realistic that no one will give it a second thought. What people don’t know is that underneath the plastic housing is a video camera and HD recorder capable of storing up to 2.5 hours of video.
We have hidden cameras that look like coat hooks, clock radios, AC adapters, electrical boxes, picture frames, and more. Each one of these devices looks just like something common to nearly every home in America. They are the epitome of stealth security.
Marketing Hidden Cameras with Built-In DVRs
Nearly all the products in the Safety Technology inventory easily sell themselves with just a bit of effective marketing. So let’s talk about how you can market hidden cameras with DVR technology. Start by addressing the fact that just about anything can happen when one of your customers is away from home or the office.
With that established, talk about how home or office can be monitored around the clock just by placing a hidden camera in the right location. Finally, talk about how affordable our hidden cameras actually are. The combination of these three points will get your customers thinking in the right direction.
In terms of actual venues, we think a great place to start is a local flea market or swap meet. Display a couple of hidden cameras on a table and be ready to strike up a conversation. It won’t be long before you’re talking to customers about all the great benefits of protecting their property with a hidden camera.
Local festivals and other public events that routinely solicit vendors are another option. These kinds of events are popular with families and seniors – which just happen to be two of your most lucrative demographics. And of course, do not forget co-ops. People love co-ops because they know they can find unusual items that are not available in their favorite department stores.
Sell Hidden Cameras Online
Your opportunities for selling hidden cameras with built-in DVRs are virtually unlimited. We say that to say this: you do not have to confine sales to things like flea markets and co-ops. You can sell online, too. The internet is a treasure trove of customers looking to buy without having to actually go out shopping.
Does online selling work? Look at it this way: you are considering buying hidden cameras at wholesale prices because you are reading information on our website. If online selling works for us as a wholesaler, it will work for you as a retailer.
Safety Technology can build a website for you based on one of our pre-built templates. Alternatively, you can build your own site using web space you have already paid for. It is entirely up to you. And if you don’t want a dedicated e-commerce site, there are other options.
Many of our dealers make good money selling on Amazon and eBay. Still others sell by way of online classified sites. The key to selling online is to find the venues that work best for you. To make facilitating online sales easier, Safety Technology also offers a dropshipping service.
Dropship Hidden Cameras with Built-In DVRs
One of the best things that ever happened to online retail is dropshipping. Unlike brick-and-mortar retail, where store owners have to maintain a certain level of inventory, online retail can avoid stocking altogether by leaving it to the wholesaler to handle. Allow us to explain.
As a wholesale seller, we already have to maintain a warehouse filled with stock in order to supply our retailers. The dropshipping business model lets online retailers use this to their advantage. Rather than reinventing the wheel by stocking products themselves, those products remain in our warehouse until sold at retail.
Let’s say you run a website that lists three or four of our hidden cameras with built-in DVRs. The minute one of your customers places an order, you log on to your Safety Technology dealer account and order the exact same product from us. You also supply us with your customers name and shipping information. We ship the product directly to your customer with packaging with your name on it.
There is more to know about making money selling hidden cameras and other Safety Technology products. But for now, the most important thing is for you to become one of our registered dealers. The sooner you submit your dealer application, the sooner we can get started.
