When people have hidden spy cameras in their home and they want to watch it from their phones how does it work? Do they have to download an app or what?

Hi Tvgirl,

I'm so glad you;re ok now.

I'm not sure how cameras work, myself, probably very difficult to organise.

Anyway, I wish you hopefully well, regarding cameras, hidden cameras, this is.

All the best,

Natalie.

My mental health is not the best. I still believe I have cameras hidden in me.
I thought there were spy cameras in my flat, I even moved house because of it. The feeling went away for me on medication luckily.

Have you managed to do any CBT therapy? I've just started mine and I hope it will help me stay well.

Lots of people have similar kinds of thoughts, the mind is really powerful. it doesn't make it true though.

Yes, there is usually an app or a web page to look at the video content. But your problem it’s not with the way things technically work, it’s with the fact that you believe that you are a “target”.

Hi, it's cognitive behavioural therapy which is a really common form of therapy for depression / also first line treatment for psychosis / schizophrenia I think from memory.

I've just started mine so don't know how much help it will be yet but I've done it twice before and it is a useful tool.

I believe there was a camera hidden in the cable tv box of my home. It was placed there by the agent who was in the flat above mine. When I discovered the camera I lost the plot and went out to escape from the surveillance. When I returned to my home it was gone. It really does happen.

That’s actually the problem, it really doesn’t happen. You’ve seen too many bad spy movies. You can’t just say stuff like that without any logic or reason behind.

You can't say that something that I experienced didn't happen. It did.

Good point. Targeting a completely random person livi g in the flat below you is not something that happens.
Reality Checking would help

1. What are the chances of "an agent living in the flat above me?

2. Why am I so special that someone would be interested in my activities?

3. Could these thoughts be delusional!/paranoid thoughts?

The fact that you post on a mental health forum indicates that you just like the rest of us are possibly suffering yet you find it offensive when your version of reality is questioned.

Paranoia and delusions are a very cruel illness.

Random people do not have cameras placed in cables

There is no technology that allows people to inject cameras inside the body.
