Sweeping for Hidden CamerasPrivacy Protection
We are sometimes asked that if our technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM), debugging sweeps and local technical inspections to identify illegal eavesdropping devices includes sweeping for hidden cameras and spycams.
Sweeping for hidden cameras is one of the first things we do upon arrival at your offices, when undertaking a technical assessment, local technical inspection, technical surveillance countermeasures sweep; primarily this is undertaken at a very early stage in the eavesdropping debugging sweep as the sweep team have no great desire to be recorded on video whilst undertaking electronic and physical searches to detect any illegal eavesdropping devices that have been surreptitiously installed within your C-suite offices, meeting rooms, and the boardroom.
Primarily, there are two very basic methods for concealed camera, spycam eavesdropping detection. First, from outside the search location we would run a video frequency scan to identify any concealed camera devices operating in the following frequency spectrum ranges, 900 MHz to 1.2 GHz, 2.4 GHz to 2.5 GHz as well is 5.7 GHz to 5.9 GHz. If no spycams are detected in these frequency ranges we then move inside the target area and conduct a scan of all walls and equipment with a laser sweep debugging device that picks up the reflection from a camera lens (normally, if a camera can see you we can identify it) however some spycams are concealed behind a mesh which allows the hidden camera to see through and makes it difficult to detect using the laser detection method. our physical search accompanied with our non-linear junction detector search equipment identifies all bugging devices which are not detected with the previous methods.
Privacy invasion via the installation of spycams or concealed cameras is becoming more common, concealed camera devices are getting smaller each year as technology evolves and the manufacturers of such devices are becoming ever more ingenious in their packaging and concealment of same. The only way to confirm that your office, meeting room and boardroom are free of such bugging devices is to undertake regular but irregularly timed technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM) inspections and counter espionage debugging sweeps.
