Buying a bug transmitter on Amazon without knowing where it is from? Actually it is not a good idea!

giugno 21, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

You know what? I bought this spy bug on Amazon, but now I am not able to make it work!” This is a typical comment submitted on Amazon or Ebay after having recklessly purchased the product in question. Actually we have been saying that for long time: before buying any surveillance devices on the Internet, especially if it comes to niche or very particular device, it is highly recommended to make sure the vendor can provide a pre and post-selling assistance service.

Otherwise you’ll be forced to use a product for which you have only wasted money! After all it is not uncommon to come across careless buyers who regretted their choice, because they have been attracted by supposed functions or rock-bottom price. Let alone when one figures out that some of those companies have no site or forum for asking help. What else to expect?

Why it is important to rely on companies which have been working in  surveillance market for years

In these cases the choice of a reliable supplier, who is really experienced in investigation or surveillance, is always the right solution to adopt. In fact only a company which has been dealing with the surveillance market for years can lay claim to a high level of technical know-how. Not to mention the fact that the vendor in question can supposedly offer a pre and post-selling assistance service of respect. That means, in the specific case of environmental bugs, GSM transmitters, digital spy bugs, etc., interfacing with experienced personnel who can grasp the subtle differences between a product and the other so as to adapt them to specific needs of use.

In fact each spy bug has its own peculiarities that, whether not well understood, are likely to undermine any result in your investigation. For example, if your goal is to monitor a room in both audio and video mode, without worrying about distances, then a UMTS bug is your device. Otherwise you might be interested in using a GSM bug to start only audio monitoring from unlimited distance, or even switch to a radio frequency bug equipped with receiver. In this latter case, however, only if you are at right distance to receive signal from the bug as well as if you want to use a really small and easy to hide bug transmitter.

KA-101: a full audio monitoring kit fitted with spy bug, receiver and micro recorder

giugno 1, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

Are you on the fence about the audio monitoring device to be used in your investigation? Well, KA-101 is just the device you need! Not only because it makes a combined use of bug transmitter, RF receiver and mini recorder, but also because it is more affordable than other devices of its kind.

Moreover this amazing environmental audio monitoring kit represents a very simple instrument meeting the needs of a lot of people, from simple users fond of investigation to professionals. Anyway let’s see in detail what are the main features of each component:

Transmission module with microphone

The UHF-220-B transmission module is extremely tiny, so it can be easily concealed in a junction boxe or power outlet. This spy bug also owns a good audio performance along with an automated check of gain. It is able as well to be reached by the receiver  from a distance of over 800 meters working 24-hours, seven days a week, because of electric mains power.

Broad-spectrum frequency receiver with on-board ferrite antenna

The IC-ERRE receiver, provided with compact and resistant design, allows the storage of 1250 frequency channels. The device is also equipped with an extremely sensitive ferrite antenna. Wide reception range from 100 kHz to 1309.995 MHz (FM/WFM/AM) at high scanning speed (30 Ch./sec).

Professional digital USB recorder

In addition to the signal transmission/reception system, the KA-101 relies on the ultra-light DIGICELL 280-USB digital recorder housing an 8GB flash card. This device allows user to start audio recordings in four different modes (SP, LP, SP Voice, LP Voice) and listening to various audio formats (WMA, WMV, ASF, WAV, MP1, MP2, MP3). It can also be set in VAS mode to start recording automatically when audio exceed a certain decibel threshold, anyway the user may disable or set it at will.

All right, how do you like it so far? According to our customers, the KA-101 is a well-rounded and effective kit to be used in several types of investigation. We agree with them. What about you?

Which video bugs are better to use in investigation?

maggio 22, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

Do you think audio bugs are the only surveillance devices to be used for monitoring rooms or any other environment? If so you’re barking up the wrong tree, because over time investigative technology has increasingly developed UMTS or WiFI video bugs, proved to be very effective in undercovered or remote surveillance.

Although it may seem trivial, an audio-video spy bug will have a huge head start in when compared to audio-only bug transmitter, as this latter also allows to capture photos and videos. Except in those cases which need particular audio quality and duration requirements.

Let’s take a look at the main advantages of using UMTS or WiFi video bugs as well as which devices are better to use in such particular cases:

UMTS video bugs: those kind of video devices allow an immediate overview of the environment to be monitored. They also ensures low battery consumption and do not require a high-speed Adsl or Wifi connection. Thus they have been found a successful way in disguised body worn operations or to monitor moving object such as vehicles etc. In such circumstances we recommend using the UMTS Falcon video bug because of its real-time effectiveness in mobile network video transmission, in addition to audio quality.

WiFi video bugs: unlike UMTS bugs those kind of video transmitters need WiFi connection, even though they have a higher video quality, small size, the possibility of registering for long periods of time as well the availability to be monitored via server both from PC and smartphone. One of the best WiFI bugs available on the market is the IP web, equipped with an IP CMOS 3,7mm 600TVL micro camera for taking full HD videos.

Economic dependence and cheating: a study reveals a possible correlation

maggio 16, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

A few years ago, on the site of ASA (American Sociological Association) was written up an article concerning a possible correlation between economic dependence on one’s partner and a large number of cheating cases.

In the article, the US sociologist Christin L. Munsch, a researcher who spent a long time studying the phenomenon, expressed these words: “You would think that people would not want to bite the hand that feeds them so to speak, but that is not what my research shows…”. Thus continuing: “…in an average year, there is about a 5% chance that women who are completely economically dependent on their husbands will cheat, whereas there is about a 15% chance that men who are entirely economically dependent on their wives will have an affair… Extramarital sex allows men undergoing a masculinity threat to engage in behavior culturally associated with masculinity… Futhermore there appears to be something that makes men who are not primary breadwinners even more prone to cheating compared to women who are not primary breadwinners”.

According to Munsch, unfaithfulness would therefore represent a way to restore threatened masculinity by establishing an unconscious mechanism able to distance the partner who earns more. Could it be true?

In our opinion, the mentioned research can help to shed light on the causes, but certainly they aren’t enough to dispel certain doubts about cheating. In fact, the mistake is often made because we use to focus more on the underlying psychological motivations than on the facts. That’s why sometimes the hiring of a private investigator, or even the use of elecronic devices that can legally spy on one’s own partner, may be the most effective solution to deply.

Multi-Catcher: a universal device to allow tapping any cell phone

aprile 26, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

Perhaps, among the IMSI catcher equipments available to law enforcement or government agencies for intercepting mobile communications, Multi-Catcher is the most one appropriate to be used on large scale and dinamic way. In fact, besides being able to track mobile IMSI, IMEI and TMSI identification codes simultaneously, it can force the devices to downgrade their own network connection from 3G/4G to GSM. In this manner the system has the opportunity to make use of interception systems working with man-in-the-middle (MITM) procedures. Another highlighted feature of this amazing system is that it can be used as a jammer to break down mobile signal in sensitive environments such as prisons, courtrooms, embassies, etc., within its range of action.

This universal multi-frequency catcher is technically composed of a pair of DSP processors, two RF modules operating between 400MHz and 6GHz, one Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module for wireless smartphone management as well as a 72 channels GPS module for tracking itself. All operating parameters such as temperature, power surge prevention or other event controls can be managed directly from the supplied tablet. Finally, it is possible to individually select the GSM, UMTS, CDMA2000 or LTE channels for a targeted checking action.

Just a reminder, here below are the main device applications:

  • Device detection/network recording of IMSI/IMEI/TMSI codes
  • Data analysis and target correlation between specific IMSI and IMEI codes
  • Search of hidden mobile devices
  • Ability to “ping” a targeted phone invisibly, in order to force the transmission of data or information
  • Ability to downgrade from 3G/4G network to GSM for man-in-the-middle (MITM) tapping operations
  • Mobile signal jamming

Spy listening bugs for cars: which device is best to use?

marzo 23, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

Not everyone is able to install a listening device bug inside a car, since the work in question requires special skills that if not well taken into account can undermine your results. Not to mention that there are some smashing bugs which can operate more effectively than others in restricted or enclosed environments as well as in those ones on the move, just as a car may be. In any case it is always better to opt for miniaturized GSM bugs, working on mobile network, so as to make sure that you achieve immediate results not caring whether the bug signal is close enough to be detected.

One of the best GSM bugs suited to doing the work is surely the quadband GSM-001 bug, equipped with voice-activated sensor and a special anti sweep system, which uses a SIM card enablig investigators to listen from any distance. Anyway let’s look at benefits provided by this kind of transmitters trying to figure out how they can help you in investigation.

A very small technologically advanced spy bug

The GSM-001 bug can be easily concealed inside courtesy lights, dashboards or any other car recesses easily reachable by 12V power suply, thanks to its small size (39mm in width, 40mm in length and 9mm in height). The spy bug also has a powerful DSP processor, able to filter and reduce those background noises or rustling that may occur on a moving car. The DSP can be indifferently set on different parameters and levels as well.

Maximum audio quality, automatic microphone switch-on and anti-detection security

The investigator can also make use of special functions in order to achieve much greater effectiveness in operations, such as: the Dynamic Mic function that can automatically activate the microphone on three programmable audio levels, the MOX function suited for moving vehicle detection and finally the very useful anti-sweep system, able to protect the bug against scanner equipments. In this latter case, the GSM mode turns off looking “dead” from the outside for a certain period of time set by the operator. Anyway after that time it turns on automatically.

Further advantages of GSM-001 bug

The wonders of this amazing spy bug do not end here certainly. Here are some other benefits that can be achieved from the GSM-001 bug use:

  • Remotely programmable via SMS
  • Virtual lock that reduces accidental or non authorized reprogramming
  • Single listing functionality that eliminates non authorized user on listing the unit
  • Motion (start and stop) SMS alarm functionality
  • Fast reset to factory default settings
  • Remote stealth functionality that immediately switches off the unit for a specific time
  • Recall functionality on movement or VOX
  • “Infinity” function for a continue call listening, also without the presence of events (movement or VOX)
  • Remote diagnostic including unit IMEI, main cells and all other secondary cells with signal straight
  • DTMF tone emitted in case of SMS reception
  • “Ring Alarm” function towards base station with voice call and succeeding self-breakdown by module
  • Diagnostic LED remotely switchable OFF through SMS

Investigations: is it better to use a spy bug transmitter or a micro recorder?

marzo 14, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

According to our survey about audio surveillance systems, many investigators and security operators have showed more interest in voice recorders rather than bug transmitters. At first glance, it would seem that a bug, working on radiofrequency or GSM network, is less valuable than a recorder. Not to mention those surveillance operators who still stuck on the rosy notion that a bug transmitter must necessarily concern only few specific investigational needs. But is it really like that? Let’s see below what are the benefits of using both devices in your investigations.

The unquestionable application qualities of a bug

When we talk of bugs, the first question that comes to our mind is: how to put it on long time charge? You know, one of the most common problems raised by bug users are linked to power supply, especially if the device must be used for many days straight. In fact, it is not always possible to retrieve the transmitter for changing batteries. So in such cases it would be usually best to connect the bug to the mains directly, so that you will not have to worry anymore about duration time. What are the main advantages of an audio bug? Well, first of all the immediacy of results, I mean the ability to get audio information in real time, as well as miniaturization or unlimited use from any distance when it comes to GSM bug working on mobile network.

The incredible functional versatility of a micro recorder

Now let’s go to analyze the basic advantages of a micro recorder. The main use of a voice recorder to be used in investigative fields is as known the collection of evidence for the defence. Anyway this is not the only reason why it is such demanded: think for example of its ease of concealment, its ability to start voice activation recordings automatically or by calendar, to say nothing of its very low battery consumption. In fact, some micro recorders can be connected to batteries so to allow even up to 45 days of recordings!

Hence from our excursus comes out a rather variegated picture of the two devices, although the issue tips the balance in favour of the recording devices. So how to behave? Is it still worthwhile using a radio bug or a GSM bug? Of course yes! As those investigators who follow us probably know, bug transmitters are substantially different from micro-recorders in their scope. In that case there’s nothing to do but reiterate: if your goal is to immediately start investigating, or you are miles away from your target, well, a GSM bug is fit for purpose!

Finally, for those who are looking for a system owning both a bug and a recorder, we report this kit which provides both functions in a single unit.

Are you also a victim of micro-cheating? Let’s find out!


Do you believe you won’t never be affected by cheating? Do not blindly trust your emotional control efforts! Cause in the past you might have put in place some micro-cheating behavioural actions, without even knowing it.

The question raised on the net some months ago thanks to an interview released to Daily Mail on line journal by the australian psychologist Melanie Schilling, who put a spotlight on the word “micro-cheating”, although actually the term has been taken into consideration by Urban Dictionary since years. Anyway there under the voice “micro-cheating” we read: “Small acts considered disloyal within a relationship, nothing too serious but not innocent either”.

In short, according to the australian scientist, we should actually focus on ourselves to avoid micro-cheating actions caused by the spread of new technologies, especially social network e.g. chatting with other users, sharing online games, making advances on someone by posting explicit content etc. In short, she wanted to underline all those behaviors that somehow could lead to infidelity.

But let’s see how to get out of the phenomena by treating this new sort of psychological “disease” so as not to be overwhelmed by it. The word to consider in this case is always the same: honesty. Whether toward yourself, i.e. avoiding to engage in compromising behaviors whenever possible, either toward your partner, if you instead have made up your mind to make your intentions clear. And what about those victims who are gripped by doubt? Well, in this case you can also rely on private investigator services or use some surveillance devices that, even if ineffective in healing you from your psychological wound, are actually helpful to show you things from another perspective.

Would you like to record audio or video from a distance? Try using an over IP WiFi module!

febbraio 28, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

As many of you already know a professional A/V kit equipped with an IP micro camera is able to live monitor in an effective way rooms, vehicles or people from any distance, and simply work by using the Internet. Not only. It can also manage all functions remotely and be easily hidden everywhere.

Just only these own features would be enough to guarantee you a certain degree of reliability and security in audio and video surveillance, as well as to further you to purchase this device instead of other more cumbersome or complicated equipments doing the same job. Moreover, thanks to the newest remote video surveillance miniaturized devices, it is also possible to combine the practical aspects of a micro recorder with the advantages of an A/V over IP monitoring system, ensuring more effectiveness in remote audio-video investigations. In fact, the IP-WEB transmission/registration module allows you to do all this avoiding you to use any other additional devices or peripherals.

The over IP WiFi transmission/recording system we are referring to, is a small sized device totally manageable from any distance. It also provides a motion detection function for starting A/V recordings on target movements. Moreover, it is possible to monitor the micro-camera both from a PC and from a mobile phone, thanks to a user-friendly app. If you add to this the fact that the module is also able to work 24 hours on 24 in full autonomy when powered by the mains, without any user intervention, you will realize you have in your hands a really complete spy device as well as an effective equipment to start secret investigations when needed!

Main features of IP Web WiFi module:

  • Very small camera, easy to conceal
  • Advanced H.264 video compression tech
  • Possibility of recording by means of motion detection, manual or scheduled
  • Easy to set up the wireless network, video, alarms and stored files on micro SD card (up to 32GB)
  • Totally manageable also from your smartphone
  • Knowles microphone
  • Direct point-to-point connection (P2P)
  • High powered wireless connection
  • Supporting up to more simultaneous users
  • Possibility of viewing/recording/managing multiple cameras via pc

Professional spy bugs: why it is important to rely on top expert surveillance companies

febbraio 2, 2018 Surveillance No Commenti

The ultimate european statistics linked to online commerce are very encouraging. In fact, the revenue of global ecommerce for the past year is around 600 billion euros (24 billion only in Italy!), with an overall increase of almost 15% more of the previous year.

Nonetheless, in this idyllic digital universe studded with e-stores and online products, there is a flaw that, if not properly dammed, can belittle the efforts of those who over the years have made of quality their own battle horse. That’s right, companies with a certain proven reputability are suddenly forced to compete with a lot of newborn realities, most of them endowed of low value assessment and poor product quality.

This trend shows an emerging danger in the sale of electronic surveillance devices. In this specific commercial field, in fact, companies are exposed to the verification of certain technical / commercial skills, first of all a deep product knowledge, quality control and uncommon communication skills. The professional spy bug sales sector, for example, requires a particular approach to customerhip because of its connection with unusual and tricky realities, well known to a top expert surveillance company.

Regarding quality parameters, here are the main characteristics of reliability that a professional spy bug should absolutely have:

  • materials fitting the environment in which it is going to operate
  • optimal audio (or video) reception quality
  • targeted and personalized use
  • small size and ease of concealment
  • long-term operation
  • guarantee of success into investigative strategies

As well as it is important that the vendor can provide a full service assistance, especially of post-assistance, in order to be sure that the client is using the device in a correct way. For e.g. it is essential to determine together whith client which product meets his needs, following him in the early stages of installation, or be ready to solve any request or difficulty found. In some cases, the mentioned request can also be asked at impossible times.

Well, it’s time to go on drawing up a list of which professional bugs are mostly used and their related advantages:

  • GSM/UMTS spy bug: a GSM bug works on mobile network, so it has the advantage of being ‘heard’ from any distance through a simple phone call. A UMTS bug, instead, can additionally capture video if necessary
  • digital radiofrequency/WFM UHF spy bug: this kind of transmitter is very small and work interfaced with a receiver to listen within the bug range. Greater power corresponds to greater listening distance
  • WiFi micro-camera: although this kind of device does not belong to the narrow circle of real bugs, it allows you to have a continuous connection (via smartphone or PC) in order to remotely control any environment

In short, commercializing GSM, UHF, WiFi, etc. professional bugs it’s not for everyone. We need people able to put in place a peculiar approach to sale, or a type of intervention aimed at customers, that most of companies you can see at a glance in search engine results may rarely offer!
