  • Mirrors are the most common places where the secret cameras have been installed. Detect for two-way mirrors. Place your fingernail on the mirror and observe the gap between the mirror and your finger. If you find gap between the both, then it is a real mirror. On the other hand, if your finger and the image touch tip to tip, then there might be a hidden camera in the mirror.

The spy cameras can be normally installed to the roofs, plants, door holes and doorbells in the outdoor. Hence, monitor them carefully.
  • Check for any suspicious wires, lights and unusual power outlets or adapters.
  • Turn off the light and observe carefully whether there is any blinking or shining visible. This is because most hidden cameras have red or green LEDs.
