IMPORTANT: Please note, we are not a private investigation agency, who often rely on simple signal detection with basic equipment for bug sweeping; this process is unreliable and can miss many bugs. Most bugs available on the market now, will go into a sleep mode and STOP TRANSMITTING when the person who has planted the device is not using it at the time of the sweep.
The only way to find these is by using an advanced Non Linear Junction Detector NLJD in combination with a sensitive THERMAL CAMERA. The combination of these and other advanced equipment, will find bugs that are transmitting, not actively transmitting, and also those that are remotely switched off. We use this equipment, and we also have a very wide range of further equipment (please see our home page). Our equipment and expertise will scan and detect non-transmitting bugs, transmitting bugs, broadband and network bugs, specialist GSM bugs, simple recording devices (not transmitting), frequency hopping bugs, burst transmission bugs, video bugs, laser bugs, and bluetooth bugs. All these bugging devices are readily available at low cost on the internet.

Please allow sufficient time for a bug sweep, please allow up to 3 hours for a 1 bedroom apartment 3-8 hours for a house (depending on size) and 1 or 2 days for very large offices. We are available any time including days, evenings and weekends at equal cost.

Threat Adjustment to Sweep Prices

Every case and sweep is different, however most sweeps fall into a "normal" threat status. There may be a requirement where a certain higher level of threat or more complex result of a threat may have occurred or be in existence, or it may be that the client requires a specific level of action to be taken. We fully understand these specific requirements, and will assist our clients as what may be a modified cost.
