How to Detect Small Cameras


A small camera hidden inside a house violates your privacy and should be located so it can be removed. To detect a small camera that is hidden in a wall or ceiling, use a laser detector that reflects light off the camera’s lens. The laser detector can be acquired from select hobby shops and security systems service centers. The procedure is straightforward and, unlike the hidden camera, perfectly legal for you to do.

Things You’ll Need : Laser detector, Phillips jeweler’s screwdriver, Batteries, Phillips , screwdriver, Duct tape


  • Open the battery compartment on the side of back of the laser detector — the exact placement will depend on the make. If a screw must first be loosened, loosen the screw with a Phillips jeweler’s screwdriver.
