Two online sources where a peephole video camera can be purchased are the websites for Spyville and Newegg. Both online retailers maintain corporate headquarters in the United States, which are located in Monterey, Tennessee, and City of Industry, California, respectively.
Both Spyville and Newegg have been accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Newegg charges a restocking fee for items returned. The retailer claims a wide-range product listing of more then 10 million items and provides Pacific Standard Time phone customer service 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Online chat support is also available 24 hours a day. The Newegg website's "Awards / Rankings" page displays several Computer Shopper and BizRate awards.
Spyville's merchandise line consists primarily of hidden, security and spy cameras, phone recorders and bug detectors. The retailer has been a BBB-accredited business since 2014. As of 2015, no BBB complaints have been filed regarding Spyville, as reported on the agency's website. The company has been in business since 2006.
A common use for a peephole camera is to enable people inside of a house or an apartment to see who is at their door before answering it. They can also help identify a suspect in home delivery theft.
