Yes they call it a faraday cage where you utilize brass wire mesh and it
disrupts the wireless signal incoming and outgoing

Good idea Todd. Any mesh would definitely make it messy to drill a hole.

Just a thought, are there any small cameras that would have an in built
recording function? And if so, would this kind of camera be affected by
the mesh?

No need to jam, a wire mesh placed in the walls and grounded will stop
most RF devices cold.
The mesh should be of the same type as screen door mesh (must be wire
though!) to be able to stop any 2ghz signals. The mesh would also need
to be electrically contiguous of course.

Might make it hard to drill as well, the mesh would foul any powered
bits and a hand tool would have great difficulty dealing with it as
well.

One thing to do would be to build the room as clean and free from places
that cameras could be hidden etc. ie no benches etc. Make it so that any
tampering would be obvious.
Also, make the walls etc out of something that would be hard to drill a
pinhole in.

Then some of those detectors that you listed could be used-though I
can't vouch for any of them.
Maybe there's a way of jamming signals too?

Hi all,

I have been asked by a client to find a solution for detecting cameras
in dressing rooms etc. The client has trial rooms where customers can
try various garments. The concern is that  some one could plant a camera
in one of these rooms and photograph customers.

I have checked online and have found the following sources;
http://www.brickhousesecurity.com/sf-103.html
http://www.spytechs.com/bug_sweep_equip/vcd_43.htm
http://www.pimall.com/nais/countervideo.html
http://www.intpro.co.uk/pinhole.htm
http://www.intpro.co.uk/camera%20detector.htm
Are there any others? Has any one on this list tried any such solutions?
I have found an interesting reference on hiding and detecting cameras at
