One of the greatest fears anyone can have is that you are being watched or video recorded in your own home, especially in areas where you would never expect a hidden camera.
The most common areas where you will find a hidden camera are bathrooms, bedrooms, or any area where you might would feel comfortable walking around naked.
Unfortunately, there have been numerous incidents where a spouse, boyfriend, or significant other have placed a hidden video camera in a house, apartment, condo, or dorm room to capture an unsuspecting subject in various forms of undress or while having a sexual encounter.
These videos can either be used for personal gratification, blackmail, or video sharing. There are hundreds of websites dedicated to voyeurism and websites where individuals can upload their hidden videos to ‘show-off’ their wives, girlfriends, parents, even children. If you even think that your husband or boyfriend may be covertly recording minor children, you must report your suspicions to the police and request a video sweep to confirm or refute your suspicions.
It is most common for men to to video record their spouses or girlfriends without their knowledge. This is usually done for self gratification. However it is also not unheard of for sexual deviant males to acquire covert video of siblings, parents, or house guests in hopes to see their subjects in various levels of undress or sexual activity.
The only way for you to know for sure if there are any hidden video cameras in your residence or place of business is to hire a professional Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) technician utilizing very sophisticated electronic equipment designed specifically to find hidden cameras.
Beware of Inexpensive ‘Spy Shop’ Gadgets!
While there is a very slight chance you might find a poorly placed or designed video camera, you could be looking at one, even holding a hidden camera concealed in an every day item and not even know it. By the way, the opening of a hidden camera can be as small as 1/16 of an inch, or as small as the circle at the end of this sentence. °
Our team of experienced and certified TSCM specialists use various electronic detection devices totaling more than $100,000 specifically designed to find hidden video cameras, video recorders, and video transmitters. There is no way you can compare a spy shop device or an inexperienced individual to find hidden cameras, especially if the device is off!
The specialized equipment we use will find hidden cameras that are either on or off, wired or wireless. Less experienced bug sweepers simply don’t have the equipment or training to find hidden cameras that are off, even if remotely turned off. Some private investigators will try to convince you that a small handheld RF detector they bought at a spy shop can find any hidden camera, but that device will not find a non-transmitting hidden camera.
If there is a hidden camera in your home, we can detect either analog or digital signals and most often be able to demodulate the signal so we can actually see the picture that is being recorded or transmitted.
