Bug Detection Devices – How Do They Work?

Cases of surveillance using electronic bugs are on the rise. This is partly due to the ease with which these devices can be bought, particularly over the internet. If you think you are at risk then bug detection devices, when wielded properly by professionals, will give you the peace of mind you need.

Counter surveillance is not something that can be undertaken by just anyone. While surveillance bugs are relatively cheap and easy to use and hide, the equipment required to detect them is much more complex. The type of bug detection equipment used will depend very much on the type of surveillance that has been undertaken. During a sweep of your home or office, cameras may be detected by a device that flashes to illuminate the lens of a pinhole camera. Listening devices require something a little more complex, as they don’t have lenses that reflect light. These type of bugs are often picked up by sweeping with a radio frequency detector. Once a signal is found the operative will determine whether it is a listening device, or whether the detector is picking up a single from a radio, mobile phone, or even the microwave. These are commonly referred to as false positives and are one of the reasons why you shouldn’t attempt this type of detection on your own. When arriving to undertake a full sweep of your home or office your operative may also use an audio jammer or noise generator to temporarily block any signals and allow them to talk you through the procedures without the risk of being overheard.

For the best and most thorough results, bug detection devices should only be used by experienced and trained professionals. This is exactly what you will find at Advanced Sweeping.
