- A wall clock, alarm clock or standing clock

Determine a good line of sight for what or who you plan to monitor. Check for visual obstructions and plan for a moving target. You may want to put multiple mini cameras in different rooms or areas of the same room. Think about sound and whether it's an important issue for you. If so, make sure your mini-cam records audio, and make sure you do not place it beside a television, stereo, or other sound source in your home. You might want to put it near a couch or other spot where you want to hear sound clearly.
If your unit needs to be plugged in, place it near an outlet or computer. If it uses a cord or cable, place it in a hidden area or disguise the wire with a household appliance or electronic device. Once you place your concealed camera, check to see if you put it in a spot where it could attract attention. Every room has places that naturally draw attention; avoid those hiding spots. Good placement areas include a spot that is much higher or far lower than most people look. Ask a friend or family member to see if they can spot the device after it is concealed.
