Professional bug sweeping services do not just wave an antenna wand around and declare that a site is free from “Bug Surveillance”
Bug sweep detection services use very expensive equipment and while a person can purchase a “bug sweeping device” from the internet and call themselves a “Professional Bug Sweeper”, in fact, providing “surveillance and counter surveillance” is work that must be done by a licensed private investigator. An investigation will usually be conducted in layers.
Several considerations go into price estimating a business bug sweep an industrial bug sweep or a residential bug sweep and can vary greatly from site to site. Some of the conditions that affect pricing include, but are not limited to:
Type of construction, clutter factor and square footage of a site have the greatest impact on price.
Costs can range from as high as $2.00 sq/ft to just under $1.00 sq/ft depending upon many of the conditions listed above.
Contacting a bug sweep services near you may be a bit uncomfortable, sometimes articulating concerns about eavesdropping and espionage can be difficult. Professional bug sweeping services should understand this and be able to explain the process, the timeline and what cost you should expect.
Counter-surveillance companies, companies that sweep for listening devices, use a Technical Surveillance Countermeasures device known as a Spectrum Analyzer which serves as the backbone for a team’s electronic bug detection services. This bug sweeping device is used with other tools such as the REI ANDRE which is used to pinpoint bugs and transmitting electronics.
Our team uses the ANDRE to scan the RF spectrum. It’s a hand-held broadband receiver that detects and assists in locating nearby RF, infrared, visible light, carrier current and other types of transmitters.
These and many other electronic instruments are used to validate and verify signals when they are detected throughout the electronic spectrum as high as 24Ghz.
