If you suspect you are being watched without your knowledge, a wireless camera detector can let you know for sure. Wireless cameras use RF waves to communicate between a transmitter and a receiver. The camera detectors are actually detecting the RF waves.

This technology is available in a variety of different price ranges. The least expensive detectors can be found for around $30-$40. These RF detectors are perfect for carrying around in a purse to public dressing rooms, tanning salons, gym locker rooms and public restrooms. Unfortunately, high-tech peeping toms are a very real danger these days. People can install hidden cameras in public places and then post the video images on the Internet. Victims feel violated and angry. Having some inexpensive protection from that nightmare is a good idea.

Some of the more expensive wireless camera detectors often use a different technology than RF detection. Some detectors use an array of super bright light emitting diodes (LEDs) that will reflect in a camera's lens. When looking through the view port on the detector, the lens of a hidden camera can be easily seen.

For the most high-tech detectors on the market, you can spend thousands of dollars. These detectors can not only detect wireless cameras, they can also alert you to the presence of virtually every kind of covert device out there. They can detect all kinds of transmitters including RF transmitters, carrier current transmitters and telephone bugs. Professional sweep teams can use these to ensure the security of any room.
