Spy Bug Detectors

Spy Bug Detectors

With the development of surveillance techniques, counter surveillance methods have improved and within an acceptable budget. DIY products have been developed to detect spy bug listening devices and spy cameras. These products can detect both wired and wireless cameras. Some devices can even detect cameras when turned off by identifying the lens to yourself, as well as locating analogue and digital devices. These various products are reasonably priced and completely legal when used in your own property. This helps protect yourself from potential leaks of sensitive information.

By targeting a broad range of frequencies, devices can detect most transmission equipment, which can include gsm listening devices. The built-in signal strength indicators will point you towards a camera or spy bugs position, allowing you to find its exact location. This type of camera detector is easy to use and reliable.

Whilst these low-cost spy detectors are not designed for commercial use, they are good in the home or small office environment. There are various devices, which perform different search and detection methods. The bug detector is essentially a radio receiver that can pick up electromagnetic signals broadcasted from the electronic device or specifically, a spy bug. Fortunately, most radio frequency bugs are found easily. The signals that they transmit is spotted by a simple Anti Spy detector, tuned to the frequency range that the offending bugs uses. By moving the bug detector around the room, it can alert the user to hidden spy bugs.

Professional Use Bug detectors
These are devices are specifically for professional use – such as police, special forces and government agencies. They tend to be a lot more expensive than domestic use models, as they can detect a wider range of frequencies and have a larger range of professional transmitting devices. They often need calibration and can be used to assist in collection of evidence. We have chosen not to specialise in professional bug detectors, this reason.

Domestic Use Bug Detectors
Doing essentially the same job as the professional models, but perhaps with slightly less range, these are the devices that the public might buy if he or she thinks their partner is carrying out surveillance on them. These are intended for occasional use and far more affordable in price, these are perfect for use in the home or small office environment and will pick up most transmitting devices accurately.
