The CAM-105w Cellular Activity Monitor is the most sophisticated handheld multi-band cellular radio frequency detectors available, covering 2G, 3G WiFi and Bluetooth as well as the latest 4G technology.
In a fast-changing world where the very latest technology can lend itself to new and evermore sophisticated bugging devices, the has to be a counter surveillance bug sweeper that meets this challenge head-on.
With many cities in UK and across the world switching on the latest 4G super-fast mobile broadband frequencies for cellular and other mobile communication technology, the need for s specialist bug detector had become particularly important.
Previously bug detectors (or bug sweepers) has been able to offer scanning for 2G and 3G signals, but now 4G is also covered by the the CAM-105w. The very nature of normal cellular transmissions means that the signal is not always being used to transmit 100% of the time and this means a scanning system is required to pick out event activity as and when it happens. The Cellular Activity Monitor goes one step further than other units in that it has the facility to record and memorise up to 4000 cellular events thereby providing the ability to detect infrequent ‘burst’ type of cellular activity over an extended period of time
This product is ideally suited for detection of various mobile phone technology based devices such as mobile and smartphones, PDA’s, tablets (with 3G and/or WiFi), vehicle trackers, GSM listening bugs and 3G/4G hidden spy cameras. The 105w is perfect for checking sensitive meeting rooms to check for hidden bugs, unauthorised mobile phone usage in venues such as exam rooms, offices, hospitals or even prisons. It is also ideally suited for locating hidden tracking devices. On top of all this it has 2400MHz frequency coverage encompassing the fast growing threat of bluetooth and WiFi bugging technology.
The large colour TFT screen separates different types of signal together with signal strength. It is clear and easy to assess and is supported by a simple and intuitive menu system that allows the user to select various types of displays and features. There are different modes to suit certain circumstances including, ‘beep’ and silent vibrate mode. The in-built multi-gain amplifiers can detect activity up to a range of 50 metres dependant upon signal strength and localised ambient conditions
Each activity event for each signal, no matter how long or short, will be recorded with time/date, duration type of frequency band and its strength. The event activity can be easily displayed in graph mode on the display which is particularly useful when attempting to identify certain devices such as trackers where a regular transmission of positional data will be clearly evident. In addition, identifying unauthorised mobile device usage in prisons and hospitals is made easier using this timed activity log method. The 105w also features a band covering 2,4GHz for wireless and WiFi covert cameras and the latest bluetooth and WiFi audio monitoring devices. The latter record audio events and store them before sending them in regular signal bursts, which the Cellular Activity Monitor is ideally placed to detect and event record.
The entire event log over an extended period can be directly downloaded to a USB stick for storage and subsequent transfer to a computer where is can be viewed, analysed and then included in a counter surveillance sweep report if required. Comparing the data from several days or separate visits to the same venue can prove to be extremely useful.
The CAM-105w is constructed from the highest quality materials including an aircraft grade aluminium enclosure. It is powered by an integral lithium-polymer battery pack and is supplied with an international charger. All components are easily carried in the specially designed foam lined heavy-duty military standard carry case for total protection when not in use.
Will this device find all radio frequency bugs?
The CAM-105w unit is specifically for 2G/3G/4G, WiFi, Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz cameras and bugs. No single bug detector can pick up all bugs, but this is the most comprehensive handheld mobile signal detection device available.
Can the CAM-105w unit 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 CAM-105w detect wireless cameras?
This product is able to detect wireless cameras that transmit on the 2.4 GHz 3G and 4G ranges. it is also able to detect WiFi cameras.
Can I hear through the device when an audio bug is detected?
The CAM-105w does not have audio demodulation and is designed for certain specific digital signals
Will the CAM-105w easily detect tracking devices?
Using the specific GSM/3G detection range on the device tracking devices are far easier to identify in comparison to devices that do not have a dedicated GSM/3G scanning band.
What does the Sweepmaster offer that the CAM-105w doesn’t?
The Sweepmaster has two additional probes, one for laser/infrared bugs and the second for VLF (very low frequency) or mains carrier bugs. In addition, the Sweepmaster also has a dedicated telephone line detection input. On balance, because the CAM-105w has a specific GSM/3G/4G scan facility, then any TSCM specialist would employ both.
Can the CAM-105w produce reports that are compatible for display on a Mac computer?
Unfortunately the reports produced by the unit are only suitable for analysing and reporting on a Windows computer.
