WiFi network

More percentage of wireless cameras work with WiFi. So hidden cameras can be discovered by finding out how many devices are connected to the router. If you suspect that there is a hidden camera in the house, log into the admin account and see if any devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi. Usually, hidden cameras are connected under the name 'Unknown Devices' or with fancy names. If they are removed, the cameras will not work. If you don't know the admin account, you need to download the Wi-Fi scanning app. This will show all the devices connected to the same WiFi. A suspicious device can be found by examining them.
