Sadly, voyeur self defense is needed today as a safeguard to ensure your privacy is protected. Women find hidden cameras in bathroom and contact police. However, they’ve already been victimized for months by some pervert. Check online and you’ll find countless cases of spy cams being found in areas most would consider private – in public restroom, a locker room, dressing room or even a hotel room. There are many legitimate and legal reasons for someone to have a hidden camera:
Protect their business or store
Safeguard a home or apartment
Catch a cheating spouse
Monitor their property or swimming pool
Check up on the babysitter or caregiver
And while there are these (and many more) perfectly legal purposes for hidden cameras, there will always be those who use hidden cameras for nefarious purposes – most notably the invasion of another person’s privacy. So if you want to find a hidden camera in your home, what’s the best way to find or detect one? Check below for some easy tips and a few devices that can help aid you in your search.
1. Physically look around the room/area you are in for items that look out of place – Cameras are often built in items that may look ordinary and regular, but they usually don’t quite blend in with
their surroundings. Look for a clock that doesn’t fit the room decor, a randomly placed teddy bear,
or a stack of boxes that might be hiding a camera. Since most hidden cameras require some sort of
power source, also look near electrical outlets.
2. Look for a red LED light from the camera lens – Infrared cameras often feature and LED glowing light from the camera, so if you turn out all the lights, you can sometimes easily see the glow, and immediately determine if there is or isn’t a camera in the area. This method works better on smaller areas like bedrooms and hotel rooms, because usually the light isn’t very bright, so you’ll need to be relatively close to see the red light.
3. Use a spy cam detection device – This option isn’t free like the first two options, but it has the major benefit of being much more thorough, and taking much less time to do a search. There are actually two types of detectors. The first uses an infrared filter and a bright LED light that operates as a viewfinder, and when you look through the viewfinder, any camera lens (whether the camera is on or off) will reflect brightly back at you. The second type of detector is an RF (radio frequency) detector. Basically what an RF detector does is detect wireless frequency transmissions – ie. if someone is using a wireless hidden camera to stream video somewhere, it will detect that signal. There’s actually a third type, which is a combination device, that includes both the infrared visual filter and RF detection.
So if you want to find a hidden camera in your home, or want to be able to spot the signs of a spy camera when you are travelling, follow these easy to use tips, and you can avoid potentially being the victim of a hidden camera voyeur. If you decide to go the camera detection device route for added thoroughness and ease of use, make sure to get a quality device. There are plenty of cheap devices that claim to find hidden cameras, but are either poorly constructed or have very limited detection ranges. A good quality device will allow you to not only find cameras, but also to detect other types of spy equipment like audio bugs. The lens finder bug detector is small so easily fits inside a pocket, purse or gym bag.
