Infidelity and Facebook Cheating

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 11 February, 2010

Remember that cell phone commercial awhile back, when a guy asked his buddy why his girlfriend was in the buddy’s favorite five? Then the phone rings while he is still holding it, and it is his girlfriend calling the buddy with the custom ringtone song “Secret Lovers”. It’s funny when it isn’t you.

What about other social networking sites, such as Facebook or Myspace? Not only do you have current friends, but people are finding all of their past high school friends, college buddies, current and past work associates… friend of friend acquaintances… not to mention old flames and past romantic partners.

“Facebook gives people who would cheat, or who might be on the fence about cheating, more opportunities,” says Lisa Boesky (aka TV’s Dr. Lisa), a clinical psychologist. There was also a study by Divorce Online which found that 1 out of 5 American divorces listed Facebook behavior as one of the causes.

I’ve seen the statistic that nearly 1/2 of marriages end in divorce. I’ve always doubted this, as I could never seem to count half of my friends or people I knew as being divorced, but it appears this might not be that far off.

Infidelity seems to be widespread, and ranges all the way from the down and out to billionaire sports stars such as Tiger Woods. Everyone seems to think the grass is greener on the other side.

So, how can this be prevented? Unfortunately you really can’t stop it. People are either going to cheat or not.

So what do you do if you suspect a cheating boyfriend or girlfriend? How exactly to do catch a cheating spouse? You can’t be everywhere all of the time, can you?

If this unfortunate event occurs, and you find yourself strongly concerned that something is going on, there are a number of surveillance options available to you.

Computer Spy Software

Advances in computer and communication technology not only allow your children to connect in a countless number of ways with complete strangers, it also creates opportunities for adults to cheat on spouses.

The IntelliSpy Computer Activity Tracking Software gives you the ability to track what is going on every time someone gets on the computer. You have the right to know what is going on. Protect your children from harm or catch a Facebook or other social networking cheater.

Features of this monitoring software include:

  • Key logging: see everything typed onto the keyboard… including emails, social networking activity, and private instant messages,
  • Screenshots: every minute, screen snapshots can be taken
  • Block web sites: limit access to inappropriate web sites for your child. This will not work on adults, as they would figure out something is up if you block Facebook
  • Completely Stealth: even if someone unknowingly exits the program or shuts down the computer, the program will restart.

Hidden Camera Surveillance

If the affair is occurring outside of the home, your hidden camera options are limited. If you suspect something is going on at home when you are at work or gone away on business, an all-in-one DVR hidden camera may do the trick.

Hidden camera surveillance has never been so easy to set up. With other hidden camera systems, you needed to hook them up to a VCR or DVD recorder to record what the camera sees. With the DVR hidden cameras, the built in DVR that records directly to a standard 8 GB SD card.

You literally place the DVR hidden camera where you want it, plug the unit in, point it in the right direction and press record on the included remote control. It doesn’t get any easier than this. Choose from many covert and unassuming models, including an alarm clock radio, wall clock, desk light, or an air purifier fan.

It sucks to have to resort to these kind of actions, but if you suspect something and want to know the truth, nothing says guilty like screen shots or digital video.

Be Safe, Be Sure, Be Prepared.

Product Review: Hidden Camera Sunglasses

Posted by Rob on Saturday, 23 January, 2010

A spy gadget James Bond would be more than proud to own… one of our latest body-worn surveillance products is the stylish hidden camera sunglasses. A color hidden camera is not the only gadget built-in to these 007 spy shades, you can shoot both still shots and digital video. An ample 4GB of flash memory comes on board, and you can upgrade 8GB more with the micro SD (TF) card slot. If the 2 meter range microphone, polarized lenses, and 3.5 hour life rechargeable battery (5 hours to charge) weren’t enough, we will throw in MP3 player capability and headphones. Nice job Q!

The incredible simplicity of this full featured spy gadget probably makes it the most appealing. Push one button to start recording the video, push the same button again to stop. Plug the included USB cable into your laptop or PC to view your footage. No additional drivers necessary.

The other couple buttons swap between taking still shot and the digital video, shoot the picture and power the device on and off.

Digital video recording, still shot camera, audio recording, all with a built-in DVR? Come on, this the most versatile mobile spy gear we carry. Major props to Major Boothroyd indeed.

Get your hands on the hidden camera sunglasses now.

McDonald’s in North Carolina Not Lovin’ It

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 18 March, 2009

Two men armed with a power saw cut their way into a McDonald’s this past Tuesday morning in NC and rob the place.

According to Police reports and store surveillance video, a couple guys climbed on the roof, sawed a hole through and entered the restaurant at 2:12 AM. McDonald’s apparently does not have any motion detection alarms installed?

Once inside the building, it took another hour for the men to break into the manager’s office and then do some more cutting, breaking into the store’s safe.

“It took some work to get through that safe,” says Cherryville Police Lt. Mike Allred. “They went through several saw blades. We found several blades at the scene and are checking them for fingerprints.”

They didn’t have to cut their way out of the building, the men just opted to escape through the side door with the $4500 dollars they found in the safe.

Police figure that the 4-foot wall on the roof shielding the heating, air and other equipment provided cover for the suspects as they sawed the hole in the roof and broke in.

McDonald’s employees discovered the break-in around 4:30 AM Tuesday when they arrived at work, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Surveillance tapes provided a general description of the two men, and a gray pickup truck was seen in the parking lot at the time of the incident.

“There may have been a third suspect driving the vehicle,” Allred says.

We had an article awhile back, Inside the Criminal Mind: Home Burglary where we discussed some of the Points of Entry for burglars, one being a sledge hammer through the roof of some homes.

Not sure a sledge hammer would have worked here, It definitely would have been louder. Apparently no one noticed the sounds of the saw ripping through the roof at 2 AM in the morning.

Someone posted a comment on the original news story talking about all the work involved to get this mere $4500 and they should just get a job. I did the math. Three guys (if you count the suspected driver), 2 hours or so of work, $4500 total (tax free) equals an astounding $750 an hour.

Unless you are getting AIG bonuses, you aren’t going to find that kind of payout in this economy.

While locals were stunned by the burglary tool, they were not shocked by the burglary. They expressed a certainty that more people in unemployment lines may end up finding themselves in police line-ups.

“I feel like we’ll be hearing more of it as times get worse,” says one neighbor. “A lot of people have families and they are going to try to do whatever they can to get money.”

Even Lt. Mike Allred agreed, “With the economy the way it is, I think you are going to see a little be more of this,” he says.

What are you doing to protect yourself and your loved ones?

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Latest Spy Gear and Hidden Cameras

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 18 February, 2009

We just got a couple neat, new spy gadgets in stock, a Hidden Camera Watch, a DVR Stick Camera and a USB DVR hub.

Much like our Hidden Camera Pen, the Hidden Camera Watch is a state of the art body worn complete digital video surveillance system. This wire-free wristwatch contains some of the latest miniaturized video technology. We were able to squeeze a color camera, microphone, rechargeable power source (2 hours), and a 4 GB Digital Video Recorder (DVR) inside a fully functional stylish silver watch.

Stick Video Camera with Audio/Mini DVR isn’t exactly a “hidden” camera, but it is small enough to fit in a chewing gum pack or completely hidden in your hand. It can do still shots, video and audio without needing multiple devices. The pocket clip allows for hands free recording. Just turn it on and go.

The Surveillance stick comes complete with camera, 2 GB DVR, built-in lithium battery lasts up to 2 hours and is recharged when you connect it to your computer’s USB port.

Last, we have a new USB DVR hub, a piece of computer surveillance hardware that turns your home or office computer into a powerful, global-wide video surveillance system in 5 minutes or less. Connect this compact device to any desktop or laptop via USB port and you can record live video from up to 4 connected cameras connected to the PC’s hard drive.

Be your own 007 or keep an eye on things at home. It doesn’t get any easier than this, and you won’t believe how affordable they are.

Caught on Tape and our new DVR Hidden Cameras

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 10 February, 2009

Video surveillance cameras inside a bar in Buffalo, New York resulted in an arrest and helped solve a theft last week. A man was charged with grand larceny and petity larceny, being accused of stealing a woman’s purse from Kelly’s Korner bar a few weeks back.

The female victim contacted the police after the bar owner allowed her to view the surveillance footage that showed a man removing her black leather purse from a bar stool.

Nothing says GUILTY like video evidence.

Speaking of surveillance cameras, we have finalized our latest line of all-in-one DVR hidden cameras. A few weeks back I posted about them, but we recently refined the design, models, and pricing.

Hidden cameras have never been so easy to use, until now. With other hidden cameras you need to hook them up to a VCR, DVD recorder or other means to record what the camera sees. With these new DVR hidden cameras, there is a built in DVR that records to a handy 8GB SD card.

You literally put the DVR hidden camera where you want it, plug it in, point in the direction you want to film and press record on the included remote control. Doesn’t get any easier.

You can either hook the DVR hidden camera up to a TV or computer monitor with the included RCA cable or remove the SD card and insert into the SD card reader on your computer or an external SD card reader you can order with your hidden camera.

All-in-One DVR Hidden Camera Models available:
Alarm Clock Hidden Camera – HC-ALARC-DVR
Boom Box Hidden Camera – HC-BMBOX-DVR
Exit Sign Hidden Camera – HC-EXITS-DVR
Air Freshener Hidden Camera – HC-ARFSH-DVR
Air Purifier Hidden Camera – HC-ARPUR-DVR
Desk Lamp Hidden Camera – HC-DSKLP-DVR
Power Outlet Hidden Camera – HC-OUTLT-DVR
Tower Fan Hidden Camera – HC-WNDTN-DVR
Wall Clock Hidden Camera – HC-WALLC1-DVR
Wall Clock Neon Hidden Camera – HC-WALLC3-DVR
Covert Spy Pen Camera – HC-PEN

You don’t have to be a tech wizard. Don’t think for a second that you have to be an engineer, rocket scientist or have an advanced computer degree to make all this work for you. It really is that easy.

Whatever your reason for wanting the ability to keep an eye on your home or office, our surveillance equipment is simple to use and easy to install, all for around $450.

Surveillance that makes sense. Have your cameras watch when you cannot.
