How To Identify The Cameras Around Your House Easily

These days, you will find CCTV cameras in nearly every household and it will not be that easy to realize their presence in a house. There has been an advance in the technology used behind these cameras in that it will be slightly difficult to detect them around a house. That made so in order to boost security in terms of the burglar not realizing he is being watched. However, there comes a time that you must know if there are any cameras around to be sure for your privacy. So how will you be able to identify a camera in the house?

How To Identify The Cameras Around Your House Easily

Search through the house


You will need to do a physical exploration in the entire house. That will involve a keen and gradual check of the house you believe is having a camera. As you do the search, ensure you have;

• Looked through the house for any unfamiliar thing or any rearrangements in the house like the pictures on the wall, flower arrangements or that weird lampshade on your desk.

• Checked inside light fixtures, flower pots and other places that a microphone transmitter may be hidden easily.

• Checked under the sofa cushions, shelves and tabletops, but the places that are mostly for miniature cameras are under the table tops or the shelves.

• Looked for those wires that you can’t easily find their destination and/or origin.

Be attentive, with your ears: The majority of the cameras today are motion sensitive devices and that implies that they are only activated when a movement is detected in order to save the memory disc space. When the camera is activated, they give out a buzzing or a clicking sound. For a clicking sound, it will be produced when the camera starts up, or when it is turning and reaches the 180 or 90 degrees rotate limit. On the other hand, when the camera rotates, it usually gives out the buzzing sound. You therefore need to be attentive to those sounds and pay much attention from what angle they are coming from.

Take Advantage of the Darkness

Light is an enemy of darkness and anything that produces light will be easily detected in darkness. For that, if you want to identify a camera, doing so in darkness can be easy if you;

• Switch off the lights and scan through the room for small green or red LED lights: there are some cameras that have a power on LED light, so if you switch off the light, and if the camera is a motion sensor, you may note a small green or red LED light blinking.

• Examine all windows with a flashlight when the lights are off: A camera relies on an observer’s side being darker than the area being observed. Therefore, using a flashlight can be transparent in order to see through and by using it, you will easily note a camera since they will produce a beam light.

• Look for pinhole cameras around: This sort of a camera could charge coupled equipment that is behind a small opening in the wall or a wood surface. So what you do is get an empty tissue tube and a flashlight and then you place the tube over your eye so that you can see through it. And as you shut the other eye and flash through the room, be keen for any small objects that glitters and reflects back.

Use a Signal Detector Device

Get yourself a bug detector or a simple radio frequency signal detector: You can use these devices since they are small, reasonably inexpensive and easy to use. Nevertheless, you can get bugs which use various frequencies in quick series known as spread spectrum that cannot be picked by an RF detector. The bugs are mostly used by professionals and they need a spectrum analyzer and a qualified technician to detect the CCTV cameras.

You can also use a cell phone to gather electromagnetic field: When you make a call on your cell phone, then wave it around the suspected place that you believe the camera is, you will be able to hear a clicking sound on the call. That will imply that the phone could be interfering with the present magnetic field.

It is not difficult to detect a CCTV camera if you are paying much attention to the way the camera behaves in relation to the sound produced, the LED light given out and the magnetic field produced by the camera.
