Used to being watched on camera, ESPN News Anchor Erin Andrews thought she was retreating to a camera-less hotel room, away from the public eye on the evening of July 21st, 2009.

Boy did she think wrong.

Nude videotape of the reporter surfaced on the Internet immediately after her hotel stay,  apparently taken by a hidden video camera.

To theorize on how the peeping tom could have captured video without Andrews’ knowledge, CBS News turned to the Security and Privacy experts at BrickHouse Security. CBS News

correspondents and their film crew came to our Manhattan based office to discuss what different surveillance and counter surveillance options are out there.

When asked about his take on the Andrews incident, CEO Todd Morris explained “The truth is, you never quite know where a hidden camera could be stashed: in a locker room, dressing room, or worse, which is why it’s important to take measures to protect yourself from prying eyes.”

Morris goes on to explain the different types of counter surveillance options available to consumers to detect unwanted audio and video recorders.

“Devices like the Hidden Camera Finder and the Laser Hidden Camera Finder Pro that reveal hidden wireless camera signals are portable camera detecting devices that let anyone sweep a room just like a P.I. would. With a simple 5-second sweep anyone can ensure that a room is completely bug and video camera free.”
