Lie detection or truth validation is a powerful tool in uncovering the truth. In years gone by, this was done by utilising a Polygraph test. Polygraph tests have to at least take two hours from start to finish, to be recognised by the British Polygraph Association. The subject who is taking the test is wired up to the Polygraph machine and seven sensory areas are constantly monitored. This can be intimidating and result in anxiety for the subject who is taking the test. The cost of a Polygraph test is generally £600 which is higher than EyeDetect lie detector testing.
Lie detection testing using EyeDetect
Converus developed EyeDetect lie detection software in 2014 and has constantly developed it since this date. The test, similarly with Polygraph, has three questions which can be asked. The subject of the test will be set up in the correct position in front of a computer monitor. There are two small cameras on the bottom of the monitor that measure the minutest change in pupil dilation. Once the test starts it can’t be paused or stopped. The subject will read a number of statements on the monitor based around the three agreed questions and the subject uses a mouse to answer true or false. The subject has 15 seconds to answer the statement before the next statement appears on the monitor. The test takes 25 to 30 minutes in duration. Once the test is complete, the results can be reviewed immediately. This can be printed off for the subject of the test to take away and on request can be emailed to recipients of the subject’s choice.

Typical questions for a matrimonial lie test would be;
- Did you have sexual contact with anyone other than your wife since marriage?
- Since marriage, have you had sexual intercourse with anyone besides your wife?
- Are you contacting others for a sexual reason other than your wife since marriage?
This is a very generic test which will cover infidelity throughout the whole period of a marriage. Tests can be set to be more specific to include a person and/ or a date of the suspected infidelity. The three questions are bespoke to your situation and points to prove.
The test can be used to prove pretty much any scenario; the questions are just required to be factual and not a feeling or emotion. An example of this would be “Do you still love your wife,” or “Do you have feelings for X.” The test may be to prove but not confined to;
- Marital infidelity.
- False accusations.
- A theft or fraud.
- Drug taking.
- Sexual harassment.
- A criminal offence.
- Insurance claims.
- Employment disputes.
- Paternity testing.
- Integrity screening.
- Security screening.
The advantages of EyeDetect are:
- It is portable, so we can come to you to perform the testing if required.
- Multiple tests can be conducted relatively quickly (25–30 minutes) if there are multiple suspects.
- Accuracy is the same as Polygraph testing (92%).
- It is cheaper than Polygraph testing (£400+VAT),
- The results are instant.
- You can’t fool the software.
Is it possible to fool a lie detector test if you are guilty?
The simple answer is no. If you try to fool the machine by looking away from the monitor and not reading the statements or answering true or false randomly, then the test will result in being inconclusive. It is impossible to pass a test if you are guilty!
If I am on prescribed medication can I sit a lie detector test?
The answer to this is yes, as long as the medication or controlled drug does not affect pupil dilation.
