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.
