Have you ever stood in front of an empty room and wondered what may be lurking in the shadows? The rise of illegal recording devices means that no place is safe anymore and this has contributed to a culture of voyeurism that is changing our society. Under Pennsylvania law, the intentional possession of electronic devices, knowing that such devices can be used to obtain images or recordings without consent is a criminal offense.
Just last month in Norristown, invasion of privacy and other criminal charges were brought against a local man who allegedly operated an unlicensed dance studio in the basement of a Montgomery County residence. According to police, the man installed a hidden camera in the bathroom of the studio to watch students as they undressed.
Fortunately, some things can be done to prevent this from happening in your residence. Here are three bug sweeping expert advice to keep in mind.
Take a close look at your surroundings
You should begin by searching every nook and cranny of all accessible areas looking for anything that looks suspicious or out of place. Hidden cameras may look like ordinary household items, but they often contain recording devices designed to record audio or video as well as flash photography. Be aware of what you are looking at because these can pose a threat to your safety. If no suspicious items can be discovered, then the next step is to look at the ceilings and walls where evidence may have been stored. Look for anything unusual such as cracks or scorch marks. Also, look for evidence of paint pouring or tape removal. It is also possible that evidence has been tampered with and should be searched carefully.
Call an expert
Hiring electronic bug sweeping services is one of the best ways of detecting the presence of eavesdropping devices. The team of experts will check the location and make sure that the property is free from any concealed microphones or cameras.
