    Sorry bout the cross post,
    but I really need some assistance.

    Does anyone know how to,
    without tearing the wall down,
    see whats behind a wall?
    Any technology that
    can do this?

    I think I have a peeping tom
    throwing microphones
    up my wall from his
    downstairs apartment.
    It could also be a video or something
    similar.

    It sounds like wires rustling
    across the wall
    and it only happens
    when I hear him downstairs.

    Occasionally there will be a loud
    crack, or a snap.
    Whatever it is, I need to know
    whats going on.

    Thanks in advance,
    E

    Remember Occams Razor that states:
    when given a multitude of answers to a given question, the most likely to be
    correct, is the simplest answer.

    You got mice kiddo.
    ....and when he's downstairs...he's scaring them, so they scamper upstairs.

    Is your apartment so fascinating that he would want to go to all the trouble
    of placing cameras and microphones into your wall?.
    Sounds most likely that it isn't...unless you have some pretty remarkable
    cans! (and I don't mean Campbell's Soup!).

    Occam's Razor notwithstanding, if you could only see inside your computer,
    you would see the little gremlins causing this mischief :)

    Actually, occams razor states that the easiest answer to this is that I'm a

  10. Another use for the "Ocams" would be to draw it slowly across your wrists
    when in such a situation :)

    Paranoia aside, check out the spy and gadget shops and web sites, they
    will sell you a scanner to detect anything electronic in your walls.

    Paranoia aside, check out the spy and gadget shops and web sites, they
    Actually those 'scanners' are more likely to scan for radio
    transmissions - assuming the 'bug' (video or audio) would be wireless.

    As for a possible 'wired' camera or microphone in the wall, i doubt
    that would be detectable in any easy way.

    Try spying on him to see if he's spying on you :)

    Here's a little tip for those of you who don't have the money to
    invest in alot of expensive electronics.

    Buy a pet. Observe their behavior. If you have any experience
    whatsoever with observing various types of animal behaviours, then you
    should be able to tell when something provokes an unusual behavior. I
    have a bird who flies and dives around the house and goes crazy
    everytime I reboot my computer. She also takes a special interest in
    my remote when being used.

    (If I hadn't given her the entire run of the house instead of keeping
    her caged, I would have never learned this.)

    If there is anything electronic beyond the norm happening near your
    pet they WILL react. Dogs... cats, also.

    But if you're not good with animals (many people aren't), this could be a
    good way of adding to your paranoia and upsetting the dog.
     
  15. I have no idea whether the first poster is "paranoid" or not, but
    there is technology out there that lets you see through things. I
    forget the web page name, but it's called something like
    "millimetervision" or something. I'll try and see if I can find it.
    One way I know this is true (Here goes my credability down the drain)
    is that there are porn sights where you can use the device (It can be
    about the size of a hand held camera) to take pics of what is "under"
    female college students clothes. Only been on that sight once. The
    first poster should consult a PI. They have access to microphones that
    can filter out louder sounds and are extremely sensitive to really
    softer sounds. A good PI, with the right microphone (I'm not making
    this up) can "hear" a nose picking, and can hear a male getting a hard
    on (Provided the male is wearing pants or underwear.) There are
    specific noises good PI's can recognize. Maybe a more proper forum for
    my post is a more perverse one, but just thought I would put in my two
    cents. The first poster has to have a good motive to be really
    believable, but it is possible to "keep watch" on someone through
    walls. If someone is considered suicidal, police aren't going to waste
    the taxpayer's money constantly watching the potential suicide victim,
    so another option is for the concerned parties involved to hire PI's
    to keep constant watch on the person. The "suicide watch" involves
    letting the person know, through microphones and/or cameras, that they
    (said private investigator) knows exactly what the person is doing in
    the room and where they are in the room 24/7. And, I'm sure, the same
    technology can also be used to **** with someone. But again, the first
    poster needs to give a context.
     
  16. One way I know this is true (Here goes my credability down the drain)
    That's simple, just use a B&W camera that's sensitive to infrared. It won't
    actually records what's under the clothes, but it will record the variations
    in temperature, which simply is the next best thing. There are lots of
    details in heat signatures.

    One Sony camera had problems with this, in that the picture was so detailed
    that it seemed you were looking at the real thing.

    Yes damn it.
    I have that camera.
    It is a movie camera that is sensitive to infer red.
    The problem is that they have reduced the sensitivity of the camera and
    removed the filter holder that held the required filter to filter out normal
    light.

    The older versions of this model with the high sensitivity fetch a pretty
    good price.

    Unfortunetly, damn it, I have the newer less sensitive model

    But it is great for taking pictures in the woods in absolute blackness.
    The camera does have a built in infer red light bulb to illuminate scenes
    for up toa bout 10 feet and you can get a little more powerful light that
    goes for up to about 100 feet.

    In the darkness you do not need the filter to filter out normal light.
    Great camera very sensitive and it has a great image stabilizer
    As to shake reducer's I also have 10 power image stabilized binoculars.
    Really great., but a bit expensive.
    The 10 power ones are some wheres around $300 but if you go to 12 or 16
    power ones you are talking 1200 to 1600 dollars.
     
  18. Infrared.

    Yep infra red
    The light in it is a infer red light and you can not even see it when it is
    on.
     
  20. You never had any credibility to begin with. If you had, you wouldn't
    have made such wildly unrealistic claims without some form of
    substantiation such as a reference to a book, manual, website, or
    gov't document.
    Like, it only works with female college students? Gimme a break! DUH!
    You've been reading too many of the ads in the back of those tabloid
    magazines. You'd believe anything.
    You belong in a class by yourself, it's called a KOOK. See if you can
    find a few more believers on Bill Beatty's website,

    What a weirdo.
