Made to Order Items

Since the beginning, we have been assembling our own Nanny Cameras (cameras hidden in objects such as clock radio, air purifier etc.). You will notice that these cameras are not found on other sites. It has been our philosophy that mass production and distribution of such camera defeats the purpose of being “covert”. Because the cameras are assembled upon order, you can choose among numerous upgrade options to best suit your need. Also, when service is needed, you can be assured that it’ll be done correctly by the very hands that made the system. We have cases where a customer who has bought a system a decade ago, returned it for a repair and ended up costing him only $40 for replacing the power supply unit inside. Nanny Cameras can cost as much as a good laptop. Why risk it with a vendor who may only offer you to buy a new one when the warranty is over?
Not only we can provide you with the best service, we can apply the best possible price, same day shipping and quality control on all our nanny cameras.

Off the Shelf Items

In China, many products are copied and distributed by many different manufacturers. Exact same housing and packaging for the camera are shared among many different manufacturers to cut down the cost. The quality of these kinds of items varies tremendously, from a total junk to, in some cases, even better than the original. So whether it’s an original, a copy or a knock-off, you will never know what is inside of the unit.

Our team uses strict guidelines to test all new products as they appear on the market. Our dedication to quality means that only small percentage of those products will be sold by our company. We also have agent in China who searches for reliable products thus filtering out any poorly made or knock-off items.

Our team at SCS would like to thank our customers. We value your new and repeated business. We pride ourselves on customer service excellence and will continue to search for new ways to provide the best product, service and price. Please see our customer’s comments at ResellerRatings.
