Spy Pen Headquarters originally evolved as a project to assist my network of private investigators. Our main networking function was to refer each other clients outside our chosen geographical work areas. Naturally this escalated into sharing strategies and “tools” of the trade. All of us have been using spy pens since their inception with mixed success. We all agreed as a covert device it has many uses and quite candidly is the de facto hidden camera of choice for the majority of our work. Each one of us however has had our own disappointments with this device. In our industry all so often we have one opportunity to gather the needed evidence and relying on a surveillance camera to capture that important information is paramount. Since I also possess some knowledge in product presentation as well as some limited website design background I decided to conduct an extensive review and comparison of all the spy pens being offered on-line.
It took some time to receive and test individual spy pens but my unequivocal findings are that the majority of pen cameras sold on-line, in catalogs and small retail spy shops unfortunately are utter junk ware. (See our BLACKLIST of sellers to be weary of) The internet is saturated with pump and dump vendors, presenting incredibly inferior spy pens and many of them tested never worked at all! Many on-line vendors deliberately misrepresent the product and their return/warranty policies are tantamount to jumping through fiery hoops! Additionally only after purchasing some of the devices did we discover a return required an expense of 3X what we had paid as it required shipping back toChina even though their website gave every indication they were stateside.
In closing we (Myself and my loyal assistant Mark) have tasked ourselves with helping other Private Investigators to obtain a quality spy pen. We are confident we did a good job.
We hope our reviews help.
