I Got This Feeling someone is watching me.
Yes it was a great song, but it is also the feeling that a lot of folks get. Many people feel their home is being bugged, or worse yet there might be hidden cameras it it.
While paranoia explains a lot of this, let me tell you, It is not all paranoia. Businesses, Corporations, and yes many homes are under surveillance without the owner ever knowing it. Worse yet, most people cannot find the covert devices!
You see it in the spy movies, an audio bug, or people sitting in a room listening in headphones to a big reel to reel tape recorder.
Hello there my name is Sean. I am a Security consultant. I have been hired by corporations, as well as just plain folks that want to know if their property is bugged, or being watched.
I can come in and check for audio bugs, hidden cameras, and telephone taps. And you will know for sure that you are safe. The down side of bringing in a pro is expense.
The good news is there is a lot of equipment for sale or sometimes you can lease it, and have a fraction of the cost of a home counter surveillance inspection.
Profession equipment costs thousands and thousands of dollars! But Some of the better spy supply stores have less expensive units in stock for common folks. Here are just a few.
How about a hidden camera detector that will find any camera wired, or wireless. And less that $150.00 It is called the Personal Spy Finder.
Or a Frequency counter that can pick up open audio bugs in most settings. They pick up radio signals and start at under $200.00. Or how about a telephone tap detector that tells you if someone is listening in.
This security does not have to be expensive, and in most cases it is even portable. In my humble opinion the best use for a hidden camera finder is not just in your home, but how about a hotel room, or changing room, or even a sun tanning bed?
So this is just a short list of some of the equipment that is out there, and readily available to common folks. If you live in the USA, please check out a spy supply shop, and you will find all kinds of cool gadgets to help out.
In a parting note, I just want to say that most audio bugs are simply very small digital tape recorders. They are placed under tables with Velcro or such. Also they are very hard to find.
As far as hidden cameras, there is something to worry about. When you can get a camcorder inside a functional ink pen, then you really should be concerned about your privacy. The good news is that most cameras can be easily found with the right equipment. I have listed my favorite spy supply shop below in my Arthur area if you want to see where I shop.But there are thousands of sites online.
So remember that feeling that someone is watching you might be more than a feeling.
