The Bug Detector - Combo combines a radio frequency scanner and spy camera finder in one unit . This device is the ideal product for giving peace of mind for an environment (such as in the home) where the threat level is lower.

This device is designed to identify and locate bugs that transmit audio using various radio frequencies including battery operated transmitters or bugs, mains powered bugs, telephone transmitters, video transmitters, mobile phones, etc. It is incorporates a system to find any spy camera lenses no matter how well hidden or small they maybe.

The unit has a decent scanning range of between 20MHz and 6GHz and that allows for detection of devices with differing power outputs. The device has a nice LCD function display screen that shows the strength of detected frequency output. The status of the batteries is also indicated on the LCD display, as is the mode of operation.

The lens detector function is based on the principle of optical augmentation. This technical jargon refers to the phenomenon where light reflected from a focused optical system such as a video camera lens is reflected along the same path as the incident light. This means that if a hidden camera is illuminated and viewed with the lens detector technology then a strong reflection from the target camera will reveal its position to the user.

This camera finder exploits this phenomenon by using a ring of ultra-bright LEDs arranged around a viewing port. When a user scans a room looking through the viewing port a hidden camera appearing in the field of view will brightly reflect the light from the LED’s.

All in all the fuss free design and functionality make this unit simplicity to use both for radio frequency detection and for use as a camera lens detector.

  • Compact combined RF Detector / Lens Detector

  • Frequency range: 20MHz to 6GHz
  • Silent and Vibration alert options
  • Multi-function LCD display for signal strength, battery life and mode of operation
  • Retractible antenna that allows the unit to be easily carried in the pocket
  • Lens detector function using a circle of red flashing LED's
  • Ideal for identifying all camera lenses including pinhole cameras
  • Powered by 5V rechargable lithium battery - mains charger supplied

Will this device find all radio frequency bugs?

The Combo unit has a good frequency range, up to 6GHz and is designed to pick up most commonly available bugs that operate in this frequency range. It is recommended for checking the home environment where the threat is relatively low.

Can the Combo device detect voice recorders?

No, voice recorders to not transmit a frequency and therefore cannot be detected by RF detection equipment. A Non-Linear Junction Detector is the only type of device that can detect this type of bugging device. This is why physical search is paramount.

Can the Combo detect wireless cameras?

This product is able to detect wireless cameras that transmit on the 1.2GHz, 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz ranges, but it is not sensitive enough to detect RF from 3G camera units. If 3G cameras are a viable threat then a unit that focuses on 3G signals is required.

Can the Spy Camera (lens detector) pick out any camera unit?

Yes, the infrared lens detector can physically identify even the smallest camera lens and this means that the lack of 3G radio frequency detection is accounted for.

Can I hear through the device when an audio bug is detected?

The Combo does not have audio demodulation, so this is NOT possible.

Is the Combo as sensitive as more expensive bug detectors that cover the same frequency bands?

The Combo is not as sensitive as our more expensive bug sweepers and as such the Combo is recommended for a home counter surveillance situation.

Will the Combo easily detect tracking devices?

No, this device is not recommended for this. One of our other devices with burst bug detection or dedicated GSM/3G ranges is ideal for tracking devices that transmit data bursts.

You will need to consider the following to use this product:

  • The unit does not have an audio demodulation facility to support the bar-graph RF detection functionality
  • If using a bug detector for the first time it is advisable to test the unit in various 'friendly environments' to become conversant with the functionality
  • It is advised that a user should have a reasonable knowledge of frequency bands used by common bugging devices
  • This unit is fitted with a lithium rechargeable battery, so no extra batteries are required. A charger is supplied.
