Many private investigation companies offer ‘Bug Sweep’ services and rely on ‘on the job’ theatrics to look like a professional service is being administered. Here at Titan Investigations, we only utilise the highest quality equipment used by the most highly trained operators.
What Is ‘Bug Sweeping’?
Titan’s London bug sweeping services (TSCM) is the use of highly technical equipment by specialist operatives to detect covert listening devices and video recording equipment. This Bug Sweeping Service and devices may also be referred to as;
- Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)
- Listening Devices
- Covert Cameras
- Spy Equipment
- Eavesdropping Devices
What Does a Covert Listening Device Or Camera Look Like?
Covert listening devices, spy equipment and cameras come in many disguises, shapes and sizes. There are two main types, those that are hard-wired and those that have an independent power source. The hard-wired versions can be monitored for long periods of time unless detected as long as there is a power supply to the building. The devices which rely on an external power source have a limited life and are much shorter term. The perpetrator will require access to your premise, so, first of all, 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, lamp, 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.
Below are various examples of listening and video devices which our TSCM operators have located in corporate and residential environments.
So who may require our London Bug Sweeping Services?
The list is endless but some scenarios where Titan Investigation Ltd 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 London based company operating in a highly competitive industry.
- A London 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 living in London who is subject to legal action.
- A private London 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 number of rooms that need to be searched and the size of each room. 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. If it’s a business premise, it is worth narrowing your search down to meetings rooms, directors and Managing Director’s offices as there may be little point in sweeping individual’s computer terminals and desks where little information would be gleaned.
