Have you ever stayed in a vacation rental?

And have you ever been concerned that you're staying in the home of a complete stranger and that your most private moments might be recorded on a covert camera?

It's a pretty scary thought, and one that we've heard from customers for over a decade now. In a survey of 2,000 Airbnb guests by Fidelity National Financial, 58% said they were worried about hidden cameras in their rental.

It also feels like there’s a news story in the BBC, NYT, or other major outlet every other day that details how a criminal used a hidden camera in an illegal way.

That's why we designed and built this Scout hidden camera detector.

Scout's the only way to find hidden cameras of all types. Bug detectors only catch wireless signals, they don't catch the hidden cameras that are recording onto an SD card.

It's not just vacation rentals either - it's public restrooms, dorm rooms, gym locker rooms, and so many more.

If you’ve ever worried about a hidden camera invading your privacy, the Scout can find it. It doesn’t matter if that camera is wired, wireless, or battery operated - the Scout finds wherever the camera is.

How It Works

See the viewfinder at the top of the detector? You look through it and hit the power button in the center of Scout- this makes the LEDs blink outward towards whatever you’re looking at.

The bright red light bounces off of pinhole camera lenses, which then goes back to the viewfinder you’re looking through. It looks like a red blinking light flashing back at you.

It’s very obvious when you’ve found a lens, which you can then closely investigate. If you don't see a pinpoint of red light, there's no camera lens there.

What's In The Box
  • Scout Hidden Camera Finder
  • Felt carrying case
  • 2xAAA batteries
  • Practice camera lens
  • Instruction manual
Expert Advice

We started working on Scout back in 2017 to meet the growing demands from customers who were concerned about their privacy while staying in vacation rentals.

So, we're biased, but we think this is the best device for detecting hidden cameras!

Product information

All products are under a 90 day warranty, with GPS trackers and Spy Cameras having a 1-year warranty. If you’re having trouble or think your product is acting up, get in touch with us as soon as possible and we’ll make it right.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

We offer a 30-day, money back guarantee on most of our items. Should you want to return or exchange your order, simply get in touch with us within 30-days of ordering and we’ll begin the return process. A list of items that are exempt can be found at the bottom of this page.

Contact Us First

Please, do not send us anything without first contacting us! It’s very difficult on our customer care team when we get packages that we’re not expecting. They usually have no name, order number, or reason for return. 

We’re not mind readers, unfortunately, so please get in touch with us first!

Make sure that when you send us a return you include everything that was sent to you, including packaging and accessories. They also need to be in original condition. Once your return is received, we’ll issue a full credit on your card. If it’s an exchange, we’ll ship out the replacement product.

If you return your product without first contacting us and getting an RMA, or your return does not meet the conditions above, a 15% fee will be deducted from your refund.

Items That Aren’t Refundable:

Some of our items aren’t refundable. The reason is unfortunate - we've had customers out there who buy from us to quickly to get the answers they want, and then return the items to get a refund. The product, it solved their problem, and now they don’t want it anymore. 

It's an underhanded tactic that’s difficult to fight, and we can’t stay in business by being a rental company. Because of this, we aren’t able to offer refunds on the following products:

• Software
• GPS trackers
• Bug detectors
• Nanny cameras


Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

How does it work?

Scout shines a light that bounces light off of camera lenses. That light is reflected back at your eye, which looks like a blinking pinpoint of light, revealing the lens.

How long do the batteries last?

A very long time. With regular use, it should last years.

What's the return policy?

It's a 30-day return period, no questions asked. Scout comes with a lifetime warranty. If anything goes wrong, you can reach out to us by phone, live chat, or email on SpyGuy.

How do I use the pinhole lens?

Hold the ribbon on the practice lens at arm's length so the camera is looking at you. Use Scout on the lens and you'll see the red pinpoint of light bouncing off. You can also test this on any doorbell camera or security camera for even better results.

    Excellent Hidden Spy Camera Detector

    I several years ago purchased a different hidden spy camera detector but I believe that the Scout hidden spy camera detector to be much better. The Scout is much more compact than the other detector but, at the same time, does an excellent job in finding hidden spy cameras. Also, the Scout can easily be slipped into a suitcase or pocket and be readily to do its job.
