Didn't know where else to ask this but was wondering if it's possible for someone to see their neighbors inside their house while they're inside their own house by using infrared technology such as IR camera and assuming the houses are situated close together. I've seen that some police and the military have sophisticated + expensive equipment that in effect can see through walls but was wondering if this technology is available for the average person and short of paying several thousand dollars.

I actually have access to that kind of equipment.

It presently exists but still expensive for consumer level.


BTW...put your pants back on....

I believe that some millimeter wave radar systems can actually "see" through walls, but as JBrown said, they are pretty expensive. Maybe you should just use a flashlight, or in your case... a Fleshlight. Perv...

Why would you assume I'm a 'Perv' Why not paranoid -OR- just interested in knowing about the technology. For crying out loud they sell audio spywear on tv advertising how you can 'listen in on others conversations' and no I don't own one of those but have been concerned with my personal privacy especially when I was living in an apartment that had paper thin walls and neighbors who were a bunch of low-lifes.

So if you really wanted to know I'm actually a little concerned with MY privacy being encroached upon and happen to like to mind my own business so Good Day to you sir, i said, GOOD DAY!!! lol

If someone can see through your walls with an IR camera, you have pretty bad insulation. Windows with thin drapes might be another matter.

Airport gadgets may be able to see through walls.

Hi Tripod, did you get any solution or good advice? I have the same problem with a guy living in the upper floor. I don't know what he is using but he is allways staying in the same room (living room, kitchen, bathroom etc.) in the flat on the upper floor. He is even moving inside his flat according to my movements....

This is one of those things where its not worth the time and energy to worry. If my blinds are halfway open and someone sneaks a peak of me prancing around naked in my apartment, I'll never know anyway so what does it matter to me!

One capability of a ceretain type ofspyware that has always intrigued the hell out of me has been those devices where the user can sit in a parked car--or in an apartment window several hundred feet from the window of the person under surveillence is, and, by aiming their "detector" (?) at their window, actually discern the conversation taking place inside the dwelling merely by detecting the minute vibrations of the window glass.
I'm aware that this technology has been around for several years, but still, that stuff just blows my mind. To me this is just as good, if not better, than being able to see through walls!
