ARCAM SP-102 camera detector

Listed in Optical Camera Detectors


ARCAM design purpose

ARCAM is designed for remote detection and localization of powered hidden video cameras that are installed outside, indoors, concealed as objects or body-worn. ARCAM is able to detect both analogue and digital cameras regardless of concealment and video transmission methods. ARCAM detects both common wired and wireless cameras, as well as cameras that are storing data on an internal memory bank, which gives ARCAM an obvious advantage over other instruments for camera detection, such as Optical Detectors or NLJDs. ARCAM does not require the operator to thoroughly and slowly search the entire premises or a person, it takes seconds for ARCAM to tell if there are any cameras which could then be easily localized.

ARCAM operating principle

ARCAM's operating principle is based on detection and analysis of specific parts of electromagnetic spectrum in order to find stray emission (spurious signals), that is unique for video camera circuits. Upon detection, such signals are then evaluated and correlated with the spectral "images" database that is stored in ARCAM's memory.
Note! Stray emission from some digital circuits commonly used in portable media players, laptops, automobile on-board media systems, et-cetera, can match camera "images". To remedy such false positives ARCAM has a function of "white listing" localized signals that were identified by the user as non-threats.
