TeleSpy Phone


So genius, so simple, and . . . so wrong. Masquerading as an old-fashioned corded phone, this thing is actually a motion detector and surveillance device. It detects when someone is in the room, and then calls you so you can listen in. So what's wrong with it?

Well, wouldn't it immediately provoke suspicion except in the most low tech homes - where the occupants are less likely to be setting up surveillance devices in the first place? How many people do you know who still have corded landline phones in plain view? (I keep one in the closet for emergencies in case there's an electrical outage.) And what if the person you're spying on, in a fit of nostalgia, decides to make a call on it?

Oh yeah, also it's wrong to spy on people.

Priced at 84.99 at Smarthome. Also available at Amazon.
