They are the best option for those cameras, which do not transmit. There is a glass viewfinder and when you see through it you can see all the spy cameras that have any sparkling substance or light by making their lens sparkle. It is best for those cameras that are no hidden behind the mirror and plastic.
3. Disturbances in furniture and dust can be the best signal.

Also you can check the various changes in the dust pattern of your room as there must be some tempering for sure. Note the position of the ceiling lights, tiles and other fixtures. It is sure that when these things are moved in your absence some dust or bricks may have fallen on the floor.
