Possible methods for locating hidden cameras on a Network

Hi, I hope this is the correct place to post this. I would like to find out what workflows or methodologies that could be used to solve this issue:

You suspect that there are hidden cameras/ spy equipment placed about your apartment maliciously. There is only one network in the area which you have access to. You assume that, given there is only one network, these hidden cameras must be transmitting over this network. Using only this network, you need to:

  1. Identify all the hidden cameras in the space through the network traffic.
  2. Intercept the feed of these cameras and save image files to: (a) Physically locate the cameras (b) Have evidence that you were being recorded.
  3. Possibly identify/ locate the person(s) responsible (via IP address for example).

What software/ methods would a knowledgeable hacker use to solve this problem? Please help and thanks in advance.
