Have you ever been somewhere and felt that somebody was watching you but you were unable to find out who from where you were being watched? Detecting a security system can be a challenge whether you are a professional or a novice.
This article will uncover some tips as to how you can detect a security system no matter where you are.
1. Purchase a hidden camera detector
This device will give you peace of mind when you bring it with you wherever you go. In a matter of seconds, it can detect if there is a camera that is recording your every move. Simply push a button and scan the room with your device. You will be alerted if there is a camera hidden somewhere. There are many models to choose from and many come with LED or RF detectors. No matter what type you purchase, you can be secure in knowing that you will never be spied on again.
2. Look for random wires.
If there are wires randomly hanging from the ceiling, wall, or area of a room, it is quite possible that they are connected to a camera that is hidden away. This does not mean that any random cord is going to lead to a camera as many are wireless these days, but it is a reason to inquire if you are concerned.
3. Look for small holes in walls or ceilings
A camera lens only needs a tiny hole to show through. Be sure to check the walls and ceiling for any holes or signs that something is not right. If you are in a bathroom or changing room, be sure to look closely at the vents to make sure that there are no cameras hidden. Be sure to look in toilet paper dispensers or on the ground. A camera can be very small and can be hidden anywhere.
4. Check for lights
Some cameras have lights on them that will indicate if it is recording or not. If you are in a room or building and can see a light coming from the ceiling or wall, it is likely a camera.
5. Listen closely
Sometimes cameras will make a noise when in use, especially those that are motion sensored. If you hear a noise and are unsure of where it is coming from, it is possible that it could be a camera.
Being recorded against your will or consent can be unnerving and feel like a violation of policy. In many situations, it is illegal to video record somebody without them knowing. For example, in dressing rooms at the local mall, there are signs posted alerting consumers to the possibility of being taped for security reasons.
Bottom line is that if you are concerned about being spied on with a hidden camera, it may not be in your best interest to stay in your current location. If you have a suspicion and are unable to ask about a hidden security system, the best course of action is to purchase a hidden camera detector so that you can be aware of being recorded or leave the premises all together.
