Spy cameras may all share the need to be hidden from sight, but they are not all used in the same kind of locations. A spy camera that is used outside will have to bear the brunt of the elements, especially rain which has the potential of damaging components and shortening the camera's life. Building an inexpensive and simple waterproof spy camera housing that is barely bigger than the camera removes the chance that nature will damage the camera. This will let you continue to use the spy camera outdoors without concern for the weather.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Put the newspaper down on a table to protect your table surface. Cut off a 1-inch piece of the toilet paper tube using the utility knife. Put the cut piece of the toilet paper tube over the spy camera's lens. Tape the cut piece of the toilet paper tube to the spy camera at both sides using cellophane tape.

  2. 2

    Tape a small desiccant humidity absorbing bag to the spy camera with cellophane tape.

  3. 3

    Slip one condom onto the spy camera and over the desiccant humidity absorbing bag and the cut piece of the toilet paper roll. Tie a knot in the end of the condom and seal the knot with the bonding glue. Let the bonding glue dry for a half hour.

  4. 4

    Slip the second condom over the spy camera in the identical fashion as the first condom. Tie a knot in the end of the condom and seal the knot with the bonding glue. Let the bonding glue dry for 24 hours.

  5. 5

    Hide the spy camera in an outdoor location and use it without fear of the elements since the spy camera now has a waterproof camera housing.

Tips and warnings

  • You can get a desiccant humidity absorbing bag from a hardware store or from stores like Target and Walmart.
  • Do not get any of the bonding glue onto your hands because it is caustic.
