How can you tell if someone has bugged your house?

If you have studied the hidden camera websites, you’ll notice that the technology is getting smaller and harder to find. A way to check if your house or business conference rooms, for example, might be bugged by hidden devices is by turning off any wired/wireless electronics in the area. Next, turn off any wired or wireless electronics in the room. Now listen out for any unusual sounds.

Another way is to turn off all the lights in the room and see if you can see any blinking lights with the phone in camera mode. The phone can pick up frequency radio transmission. Please note, however, that it’s a hit-and-miss, as new hidden cameras are designed to evade detection.

Concerning listening devices, carefully listen to buzzing or clicking sounds. Many times, hidden cameras and listening devices are installed in smoke detectors.

What does a listening bug look like

There are many options for listening devices. These include hard-wired, radio frequency (RF), acoustic and optical bugs. Some most commonly used listening devices in corporate espionage are the following:

  • GSM bugs: They work as a mobile phone, and the perpetrator can dial in and listen to conversations.
  • Miniature Voice Recorders: Look similar to USB drives or credit cards.
  • Mobile Phones can be used as bugs: Someone can “accidentally” leave the phone in your home and listen in.
  • Radio Frequency (RF) Transmitters: RF transmitter bugs can be hidden in picture frames and power plugs.
  • Optical Devices: Laser technology is used to capture vibrations off surfaces, like a window.

How much does it cost to debug a house?

Here is the good news. With our Technical Surveillance Counter Measures guarantee and free consultation, you are in the right hands at MartinPI. To ensure we are 100% confident in our ability to locate hidden audio bugs, we must regularly purchase (and in some cases develop) the latest surveillance equipment. These devices and specialty equipment costs range from $5,000.00 to $100,000.00.

We typically use three technicians to complete the bug sweep. Each has a minimum of 25 years as a law enforcement official with direct experience monitoring wiretaps, pen registers, and electronic detection of hidden cameras placed by the “bad guys.” The key is this: We use sophisticated equipment in the hands of experienced technicians unsurpassed within the current investigative establishment. Learn more about how spy bugs look like and the bug sweeping process and cost.

Here is an example of a corporate office sweep:

We will perform a residential or corporate office sweep on 3,000 sq. ft. (or less) areas for $9,500.00. This is for a two-day, three-phase operation in the contiguous United States. If you live in Hawaii or Alaska, you will need to pay for travel and expenses to your area.

If you are a business or corporation, then the best estimate for pricing is the following:

Take the square footage of the offices and phone locations. Do not be concerned with the plant or manufacturing areas. Take that figure and multiply it by $2.00. Hence, if you have 7,000 square feet of office, the cost should be around $14,000.00.

How to find a listening bug in your house

To do a bug sweep, you can use an infrared scanner or IR/visible light emitters to locate cameras that might be in your house. A flashlight can be used to detect the reflections of camera lenses. Hidden microphones and cameras can also be detected by the phone.

Now, once you have done the above, remember that technology surpasses basic and rudimentary methods. Here at Martin Private Investigative agency, the latest high-end equipment will be brought in to secure your home or office to ensure your protection.
