DIY Tips in Sweeping Listening Devices and Hidden Cameras in Your Place
You don’t have to be a very popular individual or a topnotch businessman to get others to spy on you. Someone might just be interested in your ideas to get ahead of you at work. Your ex might just want to monitor the next chapters of your love life. But whatever the reason is, there are many potential spies out there who might or might not benefit from hearing your private conversations or seeing your every move.
Sounds creepy, yes? But before you do anything rash in trying to sweep the bugs installed in your home, consider who could be spying on you and what could this or her motive be. This will help you anticipate the types of bugs that person would be willing to buy just to spy on you. Furthermore, knowing the spy would help you anticipate where that person could possibly hide his or her bugs.
If it is just your ex-gf trying to spy on you, she probably wouldn’t get a sophisticated device nor do a professional job of hiding it well enough. For this, you could just sweep the room for bugs manually by inspecting your stuff in the house. Check your door frames, windows, walls, ceiling and floor for small cameras and listening devices. Check your picture frames and other decorative objects in the house. Look for wires which weren’t there before. Another simple trick would be to use your radio or cell phone to detect signals around the house.
If your radio picks up a signal from the nearby transmitter, you could trace the source by going towards the direction where the feedback gets louder. You can use your cell phone by listening for a repetitive clicking sound during a call.
However, if you think somebody just hired a sophisticated private investigator to spy on you, you would need to search the house more thoroughly as you might be looking for some very well-disguised devices. If there is a really serious person behind the bugs, you should really be wary about every little detail in the house. When professional bug installers break into your home, you might find it out by the traces they leave behind. Consider how each furniture and object is placed in the house. Is there a discoloration or dent in one of the ceiling tiles? It could be because someone had pried it open and put a bug in it.
Also watch out for the tiniest hole in the wall or in one of the tables. You might be looking straight at a hidden camera. To find these hard-to-find bugs in the house, you might consider getting some cheap bug finder on the market or get an RF (radio frequency) detector. These devices could help you detect live cell phones, wireless listening devices and cameras, Wi-Fi signals and other signals from about 10 meters away. However, if that person spying on you means serious business, you might need a professional bug sweeper to secure your house from any listening device and camera.
