1. Scan the Environment Carefully

The easiest way to detect hidden cameras is checking around the environment carefully. Search carefully would be helpful to spot “obvious” hidden cameras.

Most Common Places to Find Hidden Cameras

  • Smoke detectors
  • Desktop Clock
  • Air filter
  • Books
  • Wall decorations
  • Power outlets
  • Tissue boxes
  • Desk plants
  • Soft Toy
  • DVD Player / TV Box
  • Lamps

Some objects may reveal suspicious wires, if you find some unusual power outlets or adapters, unplug them immediately.

2. Turn off all lights and draw curtains to spot hidden night vision cameras by using your mobile phone

Most hidden security cameras have red or green LEDs. The LEDs will blink or shine in low-light conditions.

When in low-light conditions, the LEDs around the camera lens will turn on to supplement the lighting for the cameras to produce clear night vision. You can spot carefully for red or green LEDs by using your mobile phone.

Step 1. Turn on your mobile phone camera

Step 2. Use your mobile phone camera to search around the room to find LEDs blink or shine lights

Tips: When you are traveling and stay in the hotel room, you can take a portable security camera with you. You can put it in your hotel room to see who entered your room without your permission. With a security camera installed in your hotel room, you can also keep tab on your stuff.

3. Check the Mirrors in Your Room

Most hidden cameras in the mirrors was installed in the toilet or changing rooms. Some awful guys would install a hidden spy camera on the other side of a mirror that can see-through, while the front side looks like a normal mirror.

There’s a tip for you to figure out whether there’s any spy camera behind the mirror.

1. Point your finger on the mirror.

2. Observe the gap between your finger and mirror.

If there’s a gap between your finger and the image, it’s a real mirror. If you finger and the image touch tip to tip, there might be a hidden spy camera in the mirror.

4. Use Flashlight to Find Hidden Cameras (Works best in dark environment)

1. Turn of the lights in your room and turn on the flashlight on your mobile phone

2. Pan the flashlight around the room.

Spot slowly and examine any suspicious. If you notice any reflective lights, there might be a hidden camera.
