LukWerks Spy Camera Transmits Over Electrical Wiring

For the paranoid crowd who’ve been relying on wireless signal scanners to detect hidden spy cameras I have some bad news for you. The WiLife LukWerks Spy Camera uses something they call HomePlug technology to send the video feed to a computer over power lines instead of a wireless signal.

While the LukWerks cameras do come in versions that actually look like traditional cameras I know the geek crowd demands them to be small and stashed somewhere unsuspecting and in this case a good old alarm clock is used. From what I can tell the camera can be triggered when it detects motion and is actually capable of recording video itself in Windows Media format which it can then send to a PC for watching.

The LukWerks Spy Camera starter kit is available for $329.99 on the manufacturer’s website but two other kits that include traditional camera designs are also available for $299.99 each. You can also buy an extra spy camera alarm clock for $249.99 if you completely mistrust everyone at your office or at home.
