London Bug Sweep Services Discover If You’ve Been Compromised?
London Bug Sweep Services by Titan’s professional, experienced and trusted bug sweep team. Titan Private Investigation Ltd offers a TSCM (Technical Surveillance Counter Measures) or better known as a ‘Bug Sweeping’ service. With our offices based in London, Cambridge, Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds and now Manchester, and we are able to offer National coverage. Our clients are both corporate and private. We offer competitive pricing and only utilise former government professionals for this service.
London Bug Sweeping services conducted by the majority of companies rely on ‘on the job’ theatrics to appear a professional service with little training and experience. Here at Titan, we only utilise the highest quality equipment used by the most highly trained operators.
What Is A ‘Bug Sweep’?
A bug sweep is the use of highly technical equipment by specialist operatives to detect covert listening devices and video recording equipment. This service and devices may also be referred to as;
- Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)
- Listen Devices
- Covert Cameras
- Spy Equipment
What Does a Covert Listening Device Or Camera Look Like?
Covert listening devices, spy equipment and cameras come in many disguises, shapes and sizes and are readily available to purchase online. There are two main types, those that are hardwired and those that have an independent power source. The hardwired versions can monitor for long periods of time unless detected as long as there is a power supply to the building. The devices with an external power source have a limited life and are much shorter term. The perpetrator will require access to your premise, so first it’s worth identifying who has this capability. If it’s a high profile or high net worth individual who is the victim, then it’s worth considering the perpetrator may have hired the services of a covert method of entry specialist (CMOE), bribed concierge or someone who can allow access.
You may have received a gift from the perpetrator, such as a new mobile phone, light, alarm clock or similar item which has the device implanted within it. It could simply be that a mobile phone charger, plug or light socket has been replaced with the device disguised within it.
Our operatives are all former government operators who are well versed in technological advances and have received the highest possible training, they can quite rightly call themselves professionals in this field.
Who May Need A ‘London Bug Sweep’?
The list is endless but some scenarios where Titan Investigations have searched for listening devices and spy equipment for our London clients are listed below:
- A partner who wishes to monitor the movements and conversations of a lover. This may be advantageous to the perpetrator if a divorce is being negotiated and the settlement is likely to be a large sum.
- A high profile person or of high net worth.
- A person who owns a second home which has been left empty for a period of time.
- A company operating in a highly competitive industry.
- A business involved in sensitive areas of industry.
- Companies involved in the development of an innovative products that competitors would benefit from having knowledge of.
- An individual who is subject to legal action.
- A tenant who wishes to ensure that their landlord /lady isn’t a voyeur.
How Long Does A ‘Bug Sweep’ Take?
This is completely dependent on the amount of rooms that need to be searched and their size. An example of a recent case is where we were instructed by a client to sweep a two bedroomed London apartment. We were requested to focus our attention on the master bedroom, kitchen, lounge and entrance hall which took our operatives 4 hours to inspect and remove devices.
How Do We Perform our ‘Bug Sweeping Service’?
Titan Private Investigation Ltd have a team of London based specialist former government operatives who use professional equipment of the highest technological quality to ensure that we identify all covert listening devices. Our technicians will conduct;
An assessment of overlooking buildings which would afford a view to record movements and trigger a potential surveillance team laying in wait.

- Spectral Analysis Detection
- Near-Field Transmitter Locator
