If you’ve ever been the victim of a burglary, you know how violating it can feel to have your home invaded and your property stolen. You also understand how frustrating it is to know that the police can only do so much. Law enforcement personnel have to operate within the limitations of their jurisdiction. If the thief is properly identified and is found somewhere else, a warrant has to be issued by the police department in that jurisdiction.
Legal hidden cameras in your home can be an excellent way to fight back against thieves.
Legal hidden cameras in your home can be an excellent way to fight back against thieves and circumvent limitations. This post discusses a case where this worked, a look at how to find illegally hidden cameras, and how to get help placing cameras in your home.
When hidden cameras work for you
Recently, a burglar entered a Floyd County, Kentucky home. The man was in the house for about 45 minutes and he left with family keepsakes, necklaces, earrings, and other valuables that Waylon Newman and his mother will have a lot of trouble replacing.
How did the police know that the burglar was in the house for so long? A hidden camera in the bedroom caught the man in action.
The video is now being circulated to media outlets in the area. Waylon and his mother hope that it will lead to an arrest, and the public is encouraged to call the Kentucky State police if they can supply any information on the burglar or his whereabouts.
Finding illegal hidden camerasbug sweep services, we routinely find hidden cameras, and we can usually determine the people that plant them. Proving their guilt though is a very difficult process given that most cameras or monitoring devices are obtained via the black market and are virtually untraceable. Their motives vary from stalkers, ex-boyfriends or ex-husbands who invade a woman’s home and place cameras in the bedroom. In corporate America cameras are secreted to obtain financial benefit gained from illegal corporate espionage. Bottom line, cameras are placed in the office to steal company secrets and highly proprietary information.
If you have reason to believe that you may be the victim of an illegal camera, and you’re concerned for your safety and security, you can talk to a private investigator about the technology that commonly use to invade privacy. Most private investigators in the U.S. are NOT trained in this subject matter. Unfortunately, many investigators pretend to “sweep” a home or business for camera and monitoring devices by waving a magic wand purchased at an electronic store. Beware, you are being ripped off.
While routinely perform bug sweeps, we usually do so only if there is some shred of evidence to suggest that there may be a bug. These sweeps include the use of physical, visual inspections and state-of-the-art, current counter-surveillance equipment. We also provide a 100% guarantee on these services. You might consider hiring someone who has their own dedicated website to sweeps like we do at www.bugsweepteam.com.
Installing hidden cameras in your home
Instead of being afraid of technology that can be used to put you under surveillance, your best move is to learn about it and understand it. That’s what Waylon Newman did. The hidden camera in the bedroom, in this case, was proactive: It was installed so that the person who sleeps there could keep an eye on things when he was away and get any would-be thieves on camera.
If you’re interested in protecting your privacy and preventing someone from getting to you and your property, we can provide you with the security consulting you need to get the best solution in place for your needs. We do NOT sell any equipment and will refer you to a company that we are comfortable in recommending their services and products.
Your own home surveillance equipment could be your last, best defense against a home invader. You’re certainly more likely to catch a burglar or stalker if you have his face on camera. Sometimes the best way to fight fire is with fire. Also, placing cameras in plain view outside your home can be a great deterrent to an home invasion or robbery.
