Dark Detectors are magical objects that can be used to detect lying, concealment, or even when Dark Wizards or one's enemies are around. However, they should not be relied on too much, as they can be fooled.
Known Dark Detectors
Alastor Moody seemed to own quite a few of these. This is probably because of his overly cautious and paranoid nature. They were used by Barty Crouch Jr when he was impersonating Moody using Polyjuice Potion during the 1994–1995 school year at Hogwarts.
Harry Potter owned two sneakoscopes throughout his Hogwart's years. The first one he got from Ron in 1993 for his Birthday. In 1997 Hermione gave him a new one for his Birthday, as his old one was cracked and worn out.
Following the outbreak of The Calamity and the subsequent establishment of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force in the late 2010s, the British Ministry of Magic supplied members of said department with modified Dark Detectors, which had been "re-purposed" and "attuned" to find hidden Traces created by the Calamity.
