Just think about all of the phone calls you have everyday and the confidential information you discuss. Now imagine that someone is listening to everything you say!
Are you sure no one is listening to you? We have training and sophisticated electronic detection equipment needed to test all types of telephones and telephone lines. This includes POTS lines, Analog phones, Digital phones, VOIP phones, and cell phones.
Our TSCM technicians have been factory trained in utilizing the TALAN (c), one of the most advanced electronic devices especially designed for testing digital and VOIP (Voice Over IP) lines and telephone equipment. We are able to determine if digital packets of information are being passed along without your knowledge.
If you don’t use landline phones in your home, are you sure that the phone lines are actually dead? We can test the phone lines to make sure there is no voltage or resistance on the line which could indicate that an audio bug or microphone might be listening to your room conversations.
Many homes now use phone lines connected through the cable provider. This is a bit more challenging to the average bugger, but certainly not impossible. Specialized electronic equipment can test the phone instruments and lines back to the router.
We can also check cell phones to see if there is any malware and spyware. If you have an iPhone or similar smartphone it could be compromised. Either you can send it in to our laboratory, or it can done in conjunction with a sweep. (If it has spyware the battery may need to be charged two or three times a day, and the phone gets warm when it’s not being used.)
We can only tell if your cell phone is compromised. We can’t initially tell who may have compromised your phone and we can’t remove it. You can go back to the store where you bought your cell phone and they can clear it. You should also get a new number and sim card.
Just because a person or agency promotes bug sweeps on their website it doesn’t mean they either have the right equipment, training or experience. Most professional TSCM technicians use more than $150,000 worth of sophisticated electronic bug detection equipment. That’s why you need to know what questions to ask to identify true professional TSCM technicians and weed out private investigators with spy shop gear.
