Top 5 Counter-Surveillance Devices

Counter-survelliance, or “detection,” is a growing necessity in our ever-progressing digital world. More and more, news about hidden cameras, video surveillance, and spying is being revealed.

With the expose produced by Leah Remini about the control, abuse, and illegal surveillance practiced by the church of Scientology, we see the growing need to know if we are being watched or bugged. Our personal privacy is at stake.

Even just as recent as this Friday BuzzFeed released a document that the CIA created to brief Donald Trump on the spying that Russian has conducted and the “dossier” that they have collected regarding information that could be used against him. In other words, hidden cameras have allegedly recorded Trump’s "unsavory" behavior that could be used to blackmail him.

It’s no longer a spies-only trade, but rather a field about which even personal users need to have a general knowledge. Detection devices are used to detect signals such as Radio Frequencies (RF). Common RFs are Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, CDMA, and GSM. Each individual RF runs and operates in its own RF range. This is how a detection device can pinpoint what type of RF it is detecting and therefore gives the user the understanding of what they have found.

  1. Who’s watching you? 

Locate hidden cameras or listening devices with the DD3150 Camera Finder with RF Detector from KJB Security. This detector can detect RF signals up to 30' away and can locate a camera lens from 3" to 30' away. It features a backlit LCD screen that displays battery status, signal strength, and alert indicators. Flashing LED lights and a built-in viewfinder further help to detect devices. The detector has three alert settings for when a device is detected, including visual, audible, and vibrating alerts. The built-in battery provides up to five hours of continuous use.

• Detects RF signals and camera lenses up to 30' away
• Visual, audible, and vibration alerts
• Built-in battery for up to five hours of continuous use

2. Who’s Bugging You? 

The KJB Security Products Credit Card Size Bug Detector is designed for continuous protection and body-worn applications. As a covert detection device with a slim card-style design, the detector is packed with professional features including an integrated antenna and the ability to detect a variety of radio transmitting devices. This unit has 4 different detection modes, which include Search, Sound, Vibro, and Sleep.

The search mode is a silent mode. In the sound mode, the Detector will produce a sound when transmission is detected. In the vibro mode, the device will vibrate when motion is detected and in the sleep mode, the unit will wake up every 3 seconds to check the environment. If there is an increased level of transmission, an alarm will sound and the unit will stay active as long as the transmission is present. The zero feature is used when you are zeroing in on a device, allowing you to press the zero button and the display will clear out and only show when the signal becomes stronger. Being no larger than a credit card, the detector is a powerful, yet discreet device.

• Detection of all kinds of active radio transmitting devices including digital signals
• 8-segment bar graph indicator for precise measuring of the radio field level and location of a bugging device
• Covert and does not attract people's attention when used or transported
• 4 Working Modes: Search, Sound, Vibro, and Sleep
