Our world is a complicated place. How do you know that you’re making the right decision about the person you’ve hired? Can you be sure that your new tenants won’t ruin your investment? Is your child about to marry the right person?

We understand that despite all best efforts, people may not always be telling you all there is to know. It’s in your interest to know that your new route salesperson has been arrested for driving under the influence, that your new tenant is a registered sex offender, that your child’s fiance has a less than glamorous past. The person you have developed an interest in romantically does or says something that does not ring true.

There are a great many myths and misconceptions about the techniques and technologies that play a part in eavesdropping devices, otherwise known as ‘bugs’.

Now, more than ever, a lot of companies are getting rich selling devices which purport to locate eavesdropping devices. Part of the problem is that there are a large number of ways for the eavesdropping to be taking place and subsequently, there ls no one instrument that will detect all types of devices. Another part of the problem is that the detection instrument is only as good as the skills of the person using it.

Case in point: RF Detectors. These devices are designed to detect radio frequency signals and are among the more popular ‘bug sweep’ devices on the consumer market. While these instruments will pick up certain types of signals, the user must keep in mind that virtually EVERY electronic device, from a coffee maker to a plasma television to a home computer, will emit radio frequency signals.

The fact is, in order to conduct a comprehensive, thorough search of a home or business for eavesdropping devices, an investigator employs many different tools to locate and eliminate the bugs, as no two environments or eavesdropping situations are alike.

If you have a serious concern regarding the privacy of your home or business, you owe it to yourself to have an industry professional do the job right the first time. We use CPM 700 equipment which is an exceptional piece of test equipment that has been developed to detect and locate quickly and silently all major categories of electronic surveillance devices. The most thorough method of detection and location is accomplished by using a CPM700 as an inspection tool during a physical search.

The CPM700 counter surveillance probe/monitor provides five of the most desired sweep functions in one package.

  1. R.F. Probe, “sniffs” your environment for hidden phone, room or body bugs, also detects pulsed tracking transmitters and remote control, hopping and burst devices.
  2. The VLF Probe, tests for carrier current bugs which use your AC wiring as a transmission path.
  3. The high sensitivity Auxiliary Input Amplifier allows you to listen to suspicious telephone or room wiring for the presence of buried microphones or modifications to equipment.
  4. The Alarm Monitor function provides protection after your “sweep”, it instantly alerts you the presence of a new device.
  5. The 24-Hour Evidence Recording output, when connected to any standard tape recorder, will store suspicious sounds from the Probe or Auxiliary input.
