Like a lot of things in this world, the HD Spy Camera light switch can be used for good or evil. You could use the camera to be sure no one was in a part of your home or business where they weren’t allowed. You could also use it to spy on people in various rooms of a home or office. The switch mounts to the wall and has lots of features that are interesting.
It has a pinhole camera inside – behind that logo on the bottom right corner. The video it takes is stored to a microSD card and can be shot out to your notebook via USB. It looks like a normal light switch according to the market. It’s not looking like any light switch we commonly have in the US to me though.
It also has a GSM SIM card inside and can send you text message when it senses motion. It can shoot still photos or video and can send you an MMS text message of the photo it takes as well. You can also activate the camera to record using your phone. Unfortunately, the video resolution of this “HD” camera is only 320 x 240 but at least the stills are in 1280 x 960 resolution. It can be powered by an internal battery or an AC outlet. I wonder why it can’t just get power from the light switch. The camera is $80 over at Chinavasion.
