Under a desk is a great place to hide your camera because it’s less visible and easier to manage. Installing a camera beneath the desk can help it go unnoticed.

All you have to do is maintain a similar color scheme for the camera that matches your desk and make sure that the lens is not obscured. You might want to check this again from time to time and remove anything that is blocking the camera’s view beneath the desk making sure your legs or chair do not interfere with it. Check to see if the lens still has a good viewing angle.

Here are three great ideas for hiding a camera under your desk.

With the most recent technological advancements, we’re seeing a variety of small camera implementations. They’re extremely inconspicuous and can be hidden almost anywhere.

If you’re looking for a place to hide the camera in an office or home, a small plant pot is a good choice. They usually have enough room underneath the plant, and cutting a small hole in the side for the lens to record through is simple.

Place your security camera on top of the soil in your planter.

Adjust the lower leaves so that the camera is hidden.

Allow enough space between the leaves for the camera lens to peek out.

Ensure that at least 80% of the rest of the body is covered.

This method is very simple to use. Additionally, a potted plant can be placed on the desk’s top. Make sure your plant has large enough leaves to hide a security camera.
