Surveillance devices are often hidden in walls or ceilings, so look for any spots that appear to be spackled or recently concealed. However, with the decreasing size of surveillance equipment, illegal surveillance can be concealed virtually anywhere. Household objects such as pens, clocks, lamps and even watches may contain devices to see and hear what you are doing. Closely examine your home's windows, as the exterior of windows are excellent places for installing illegal surveillance devices since no one has to break into your home to install them. Conduct “sweeps” of your home on a regular basis. Keep an eye out for any signs of a break in as well as any strangers that come inside or even near your home. A phony meter reader or telephone repairmen is an old trick, but that doesn’t mean an estranged spouse or business partner wouldn't also try to insert illegal surveillance in your home. Also, securing the perimeter of your home prevents someone from installing surveillance equipment at the outset. Consider purchasing a home security system to prevent break ins, deter unsavory characters from your property and monitor the whereabouts of individuals you do allow into your private space. You might recognize the Ring brand for its doorbell cameras. But the company has branched out and added its smart surveillance technology to this compact outdoor security camera.

Should a security breach be detected, an auto dialer function will call up to six pre programmed, designated phone numbers as alert protocol – this includes your own phone, which means that you will receive real time alerts and notifications about potential intruders. Fortress’ speaker can also be used to play a recorded message or another customized sound. A built in microphone also allows you to hear what’s going on in your home while you’re not there as you call the system from your phone. Furthermore, the Fortress’ loud alarm 110 decibels will alert neighbors of the sensor triggered, and thus intuitively deter potential intruders.
