Covert "smoke alarm" color surveillance camera

This item is no longer available.
Our take on the ClearView SP-11 by Crutchfield's James Ralston
Add this covert camera to your ClearView Hawk, Eagle, or LCD Combo surveillance system to discreetly monitor a room. It looks just like a smoke alarm, but conceals a camera with a fixed pinhole lens for capturing color images.
