Modern Tools You Can Use to Counter Snooping Around Your Home

Recently, we heard a lot of stories regarding the spying of NSA to almost anyone including big companies as well as regular individuals. This just means that if the government wants to spy on you, they can. With this, our liberty and privacy can no longer be taken for granted. We can have due diligence as well in order to protect our freedom that we long cherish. You can actually use some modern tools in order to minimize the effectiveness of the government’s snooping. Take a look at the following:


Counter surveillance tools

Spying tools these days are getting smaller and silent, making them nearly impossible to find. There are actually a number of right tools to do the job. Counter surveillance as it is called. There’s a camera detector which can cause lenses as small as a pin tip to reflect light. As you are able to track it, you can then eliminate it. Another tool is a bug detector which will alert you of radio frequencies in a particular vicinity. 


It may cost $3,000 upwards if you avail on government-grade speech protection systems. But you can also have an all-in-one bug, RF and lens detector for under $100, which is effective if you are living off-grid or far from neighbors and other buildings.


Range finders

You are already familiar with binoculars which is a universal tool for monitoring your home and seeing things at long distances. Another effective tool is the rangefinder which is commonly used by hunters and golfers. With rangefinders, they bounce lasers off objects in the distance and measure the time it takes to get back. The laser travels at light speed. What this tool does is calculates the distance of the object from you. You can buy the least expensive laser rangefinders around $150-$200 which is accurate up to 600 yards.

Sound amplifiers

One of the best ways to prepare for the inevitable is to hear it before it gets there. You can do that with sound amplifiers. It simly increases the volume of a distant or quiet nearby noises. For as low as $50, it will allow you to potentially hear a cricket jump from one blade of grass to the next outside your house.
