My brother has a "smoke detector" but he has internet so no idea if it'll work without internet.
I'm not who you think I am.

Depends what youre looking to get out of it. Do you need to record small segments? Do you want a running loop? There are plenty of cheap ones out there, but are you looking for something more expensive?
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Do you want something portable? What about storage and power?

Something like this maybe?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07DX8Z183#Ask

There are also cameras hidden in smoke detectors (plenty of models without a need for internet), wall hooks (B&H has one), alarm clocks, etc. The USB charger ones look simple because there's no installation, battery, etc, although I guess an alarm clock would do the same.

The one in your link requires Wi-Fi, but I will check out your other suggestions. Thank you very much

I've been having packages stolen from my mailroom. was wondering if anyone can suggest a spy camera that is very inconspicuous ?(unrelated to my original request when I opened this thread, in case you were wondering)
