Ever feel like you are being watched in your own home? Now you can find out if it's true -- or you are just being paranoid.
Shop at home security stores for tunable receiver monitors that will quickly detect wireless cameras in your home.
After detecting any hidden video camera, the handheld monitor lets you view what the hidden camera is videotaping. The monitor is small, no more than 2 1/2 inches high.
Here's how it works: The receiver scans common video frequencies -- 900Mhz, 1.2Ghz and 2.4Ghz. When it picks up a video camera transmitter, it sounds an alert. The receiver can lock in on video camera transmitters up to 500 feet away.
