I live in the Bay Area of California. I needed assistance to ascertain whether a concerned relative’s home in Southern California had been electronically penetrated or bugged. I spoke with several in house corporate security officers that I have worked with in the past and they all had Martin Investigative Services as their first choice.I called and talked with Tom Martin. He suggested an electronic sweep of the home and was very thorough about what it would and wouldn’t accomplish. He was great to work with, keeping me and my relative up to speed on progress. His team was courteous, reassuring and efficient. I highly recommend Tom and his team.
As technology changes, hidden cameras and only get better, smaller and easier to conceal. These devices are readily available online and are relatively inexpensive.
Our investigators will find any and all hidden cameras.
Just about anyone can have a hidden camera in their presence and not know it.
The vast majority of hidden cameras we find are in the homes of people who are going through a family law matter – such as a divorce or child custody.
An example: During divorce proceedings, the father comes over to the house to visit the kids. This gives him the perfect opportunity to illegally plant a camera.
They almost always focus on the bed. The video is then recorded, or with more sophisticated models, transmitted over a distance.
In the business sector, hidden cameras are often found in conference rooms, offices, in cars, and the homes of executives – basically anywhere a competitor would gain benefit from an unfair advantage.

Case Study: Bug sweeps
Los Angeles Bug Sweep
The office administrator at a Los Angeles law firm visited our Los Angeles office. The problem: they knew they had an internal leak. When they went to court they were getting hit over the head – as opposing counsel had detailed information which they should not have had.
After a sweep of their offices, our private investigators found 2 listening devices: one in the boardroom, and a second one in one of the partners’ offices.
