How to Detect a Covert Wireless IP Camera

56

When you step into a room, a covert wireless IP camera might be filming you. The camera could be in the bookshelf on the wall, in a smoke detector in the ceiling or even in a stuffed animal on the floor. There’s no way to be certain that you’re not being recorded unless you sweep the room for cameras. If you must be discreet, you can use your eyes or your phone to spot a camera. If you’re alone in the room, a laser or wireless hidden camera finder usually does the trick.

Look for Common Devices

The easiest way to deploy a covert wireless IP camera is to purchase one online or from a store. One way to detect a spy camera is to familiarize yourself with the cameras that you can buy and the items in which they are hidden. For example, you can purchase a covert wireless IP camera that’s hidden inside a wall clock, a clock radio, a smoke detector, an air purifier and a variety of other devices. Print a picture of each device you find and look for something that matches the picture.
