Spy detectors allow you to scan for bugging signals and hidden cameras, but a bug detector is more focused on radio frequencies utilised by a typical bugging device. Some counter-surveillance detectors will find dormant bugging devices that are not actively transmitting.
A spy detector is similar to a radio scanner, both work for counter-surveillance tasks, like detecting spy devices that are transmitting signals on UHF and FM radio bands. Bug detectors do the same although, usually more focused on specific signals commonly propagated by bugging devices. So spy detectors target wireless surveillance bugs but often do not scan the full range of RF frequencies.
A radio scanner and bug detector is essential for any bug sweep operative.
But what if you could have a bug detector that was so comprehensive, it would effectively be both. There are one or two bug detectors that do just that. Have a look at our bug detection devices and view the WAM108T as well as the PRO-W10GX.
Both radio scanners and bug detectors pinpoint the presence of bugging equipment in the house or car. Scanning and debugging is achieved by operating the detection device in an area where there may be a suspected bugging device.
Your knowledge base is a pivotal thing to consider when buying a spy detector. First, ask yourself if you have the technical skills required to use the device before you purchase it. As you might imagine, there are hundreds of bug detectors available to you. So how do you decide what one to buy? Let us guide you to the best product that suits your knowledge base.
Spycraft provides an excellent choice of bug detector for both professionals and amateurs alike. Because we have detailed knowledge of the equipment, we supply. So we understand some of the technicalities presented to a beginner. As professionals, we also know why you might need to change your bug detector. Or similar technical surveillance countermeasures device.
Price guide versus performance.
The most expensive electronics do not necessarily offer the best functions for a specific scenario. Mobile sweeping for GPS devices is simple if your device has logging capability. You can indeed detect a signal with any advanced spy detector but driving while operating a system is tricky. Using a mobile signal analyser with a logging system simplifies a car sweep and is much safer.
What makes a good bug detector?
Personal relationships with manufacturers ensure we have original equipment created by the manufacturers. Rather than cheap copy products found online. One of the first things you need to eliminate with a bug detector is reliability. Make sure you buy a genuine calibrated product that's new, as second-hand products cant be trusted. Imagine you're conducting a scientific test, you will need to know that the equipment your using is calibrated and set up correctly before you start.
