Audio Surveillance and Covert Audio Surveillance


Audio surveillance is an all-encompassing term that refers to the use of electronic devices for remotely listening in on conversations and recording them. Audio surveillance takes many forms, and each one presents its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Law enforcement and spy agencies routinely try to garner secret information by leveraging surveillance tech and solutions, such as wearing body wires, bugging rooms, or wiretapping phones.

Wiretapping is generally the go-to form of audio monitoring, because of its simplicity and ease of implementation. The main hurdle is getting physical access to the target phone in order to wiretap it. But once you overcome that, it's a breeze. The way it works is pretty straightforward: tiny and inconspicuous devices, commonly known as bugs, are planted inside the phone, thus allowing you to keep tabs on both parties involved in a conversation and record it, with the signal being wirelessly sent from the transmitter to a receiver.

Body wires are another powerful and widely used audio monitoring tool. A small mic and transmitting/recording device are concealed under the clothes of an individual, with the goal of scooping up a variety of information by asking questions of a party or witness. It goes without saying that one of the drawbacks of such a method is that it requires to be in the physical presence of the subject that needs to be recorded.

Using microphones is another covert audio surveillance method. Depending on the situation, one may opt for either a room or long-distance mic. The former, as the term suggests, needs to be planted inside a room, typically disguised as a common object, for it to pick up and record conversations. The latter, often referred to as a shotgun mic, is instead able to pick up sounds from a distance. The main disadvantages of the mic solution is that it only allows for monitoring one side of a conversation, and noise can be an interference factor, severely affecting the quality of the recording.
