Use of Spy Gadgets
When someone hears the term spy, they also associate with what spies are associated with, the privy to some cool spy gadgets. Spies are known for their stealth and cunning, not so much their brawn, no matter how much Hollywood movies portray them on the big screen.
One of their primary protocols is to be invisible or evade and circumvent detection. They are thinkers and tacticians by occupation, you don't need muscles to be a spy, you need brains. Although, you don't have to be a man of espionage in training to appreciate some spy equipment.
I do believe a majority of people would use it as a means of security and peace of mind, rather than the minority with misguided and ill-intentions. Additionally, I think the term "spying" has negative connotations implied, let's just call it being "surveillance ready" instead.The importance of not using these privacy invading equipment in an unlawful or immoral way cannot be overlooked or overstated.
Please use proper judgment when deciding to turn to spy equipment to attain the truth, or to intrude on a person's privacy. Everyone is solely responsible for their intentions, and their actions. Here are five cool spy gadgets that guys love.

Needless to say, there can be much controversy when dealing with intruding on a person's privacy.

#5 Home Dictionary Diversion Book Safe
This next item isn't so much a spy gadget but a unique security measure. The home dictionary diversion book safe keeps all personal paperwork and forms of identification secure from falling into the wrong hands. There's really two lines of protection for your delicate papers and ID, first, it is an actual metal safe with lock and key.
The secondary layer of protection is its ability to seamlessly and discreetly hide among other real books in plain sight. The storage safe dimensions are 2 by 5.625 by 9-inch and comes with two keys. For non-spies, an ingenious and cost effective means of security.
