Usage and Experience

I have tried using the Jepwco G8 Elite RF Detector for a while now. Initially, I was a bit lost on how to use this device but after reading the manual, I roughly understand.

For the RF wireless signal detection mode, signal sensitivity can be adjusted by turning the dial at the side of the device. It can only detect when there is a signal emission, which includes wireless routers.

For the UG magnetic field signal detection mode, the magnet must be strong enough to be detected. When this mode is on, the flashlight will also be turned on, which I can't turn off.

As for camera detection, the LED Laser Lamp that is provided must be attached to the device. While I have no real scenario of a hidden camera to test, I just test by pointing it to my phone camera.

The LED Laser Lamp has 7 different modes, from fully on to flashing speeds from slow to fast.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I feel that the Jepwco G8 Elite RF Detector is an interesting device to have. Unfortunately, I can only tell whether it works by having a real scenario of a room suspected of being bugged by hidden cameras and other devices.
