Detector sees what spy cams watch

Locates hidden cameras, captures images

BrickSecurity

The universal game of spy vs. spy continues. Although the all-in-one counter-surveillance device cited yesterday had some impressive features, here's one that wasn't the list: intercepting images from nearby cameras.

BrickHouse Security says its "Wireless Camera Hunter" will not only find any clandestine camera within 500 feet in 5 seconds but will also transmit the images on its 2.5-inch color screen so you can see exactly where the lens is pointed.

As Gadget Review notes, the exact use of this anti-surveillance isn't abundantly clear, but we're sufficiently paranoid that we'll think of something.
