Many people use hidden cameras to monitor their homes and offices. People who would not like to be recorded on a video in a hidden camera without their consent need a spy camera detector. They are small and portable, powerful and easy to use devices that can detect a hidden camera in seconds. For those who would like to maintain their privacy or know if a hidden camera is in the room, a hidden camera finder will work, but there are more features available.
There are counter-surveillance devices that detect cameras as well as listening devices across all possible frequencies. Hidden camera detectors can be carried in a pocket or bag and used anywhere. They have a filtered lens that the person looks through while activating the device.
A tiny peephole cam or a video surveillance camera and anything in between will be pinpointed if it is in range. Other counter-surveillance tools are RF detector, audio bug detector and a tracking device detector that can be used to maintain privacy inside the home as well as while traveling. If a tracking device has been attached to a car or other item, it will be detected.
Government and law enforcement agencies use the same counter-surveillance tools that are available to the public. For most people a hidden camera detector is enough, but for people who work with sensitive material or are government agents, full featured systems may be more useful. The most advanced hidden camera detection can actually show where the camera is positioned and what it is recording.
