Security Mirror

Here`s a quick guide to how a Security Mirror could help you;

What is a Security Mirror ?

Basically the term "Security Mirror" is a generic description used encompass any low cost mirror based surveillance device that gives a reflected image of an area that is obstructed from direct line of sight view.

What types of Security Mirror are available ?

There are two main types of security mirror, those that are permanently mounted in a fixed position, and portable units.

retail security mirror helps deter shop liftersFixed position security mirrors - are widely used in shops to tackle the ongoing problem of shoplifters. These units will be positioned to allow shop staff to monitor those areas of the store out of direct line of site, such as the far side of a shopping aisle, etc. They are typically mounted on walls or ceilings, or in some cases, on strategically positioned mounting poles.

This type of mirror can also be used as a safety aid in nurseries where they can help in monitoring toddlers, or in secure medical facilities where they can help staff to see around corners!




security mirror used for under vehicle searchPortable security mirrors – include search mirrors and inspection mirrors. These can be hand held units, which are normally mounted on a telescopic handle, or trolley type units which are typically used to inspect the underside of a vehicle, often to check for drugs, contraband or explosive devices. Portable units often feature some type of built in or attached light source to help illuminate the area being inspected.


Why are security mirrors so popular ?

They offer an inexpensive and very practical alternative to CCTV as both a safety and security aid and can be used almost anywhere. Whereas the use of a CCTV system requires a power supply to the camera (and possibly a good radio frequency signal environment), plus expensive recording and or viewing equipment to receive the images from the camera, ...a mirror doesn`t!

And unlike CCTV, a Security mirror is not subject to the Data Protection Act because it does not record images
