Will Spy Gadgets Hit The High Street?

Adrian Mudd   September 24, 2009

It may come as a surprise to most people that the only real way to view and purchase spy gadgets is on the Internet. But why is this? Here we investigate possible reasons behind the facts. If you were to go to any of the mainstream electrical and electronics retailers on any high street in the UK to purchase spy gadgets you would find that what is on offer is very limited or simply non-existent. Could it be that high street stores haven’t grabbed the concept that the public have a real interest in spy gadgets? Or is there another underlying reason for this?

Spy Gadgets At The Electrical Stores

You would really have thought that amongst the TV’s, DVD Recorders, MP3’s and audio recording products on offers at the electrical retailers there would have been some more specialised hidden camera recording systems or discreet voice recorders on offer. There are of course a few exceptions, but as a rule it would appear that spy gadgets have been passed by. It may be that the mainstream retailers associate this type of spy equipment as having a narrow appeal, or maybe it is because many would view this type of surveillance equipment as being linked to a dark side of peoples lives.

It may also be that it would be difficult to sell spy tools off the shelf amongst other electronic devices because, by their very nature, spy equipment product purchases usually are a very private matter and not something that most customers would want to be open about.

Over the counter equipment

These factors are of course very valid, but I believe the main reason behind their non-inclusion in the mainstream retail is that by the very nature of the equipment, specialist advice is normally required to identify exactly what spy gadget or equipment would suit the needs of the customer and it is here where high street store staff lack the knowledge required to enable customers to make an informed choice.

Nevertheless, due to increase in popularity, I believe some spy gadgets will make the high street retailers eventually because, although they have a serious side, spy devices also can be viewed as fun boys toys.
