How to Hide a Security Camera in Plain Sight

Security cameras are used by homeowners to monitor children, look out for intruders and generally keep a watch over a home. Many homeowners seek ways to hide these cameras, but fail miserably. By using a tissue box and a little ingenuity, you can hide a camera that is placed out in the open and no one will be the wiser.

Step

Remove all the tissues from the tissue box through the top and using a utility knife place a small pinhole in the side of the box.

Step

Place the security camera into the box, making sure that its lens is pointed out the hole in the side.

Step

Place the tissues back into the box, hiding the camera.

Step

Attach the video output of the wireless receiver to the video input of the monitor using the composite video cable.

Step

Turn on all devices, including the camera by sticking your hand down into the tissue box and flipping the switch.

Step

Synchronize the frequency of the camera to that of the wireless receiver by tuning the receiver until the image captured from the camera appears on the monitor.
