Bug Detection


Why Consider a Bug Sweep?

With the rapid technological advancements, the potential for privacy invasion has escalated. Whether it’s about keeping business secrets protected, ensuring personal privacy, or safeguarding against unauthorised surveillance, a professional bug sweeper is essential. Lyonswood, with over 40 years of dedicated experience, is your ultimate choice for a bug sweep.

Bug Detection Services

Not only do we excel in the detection of eavesdropping devices, but our electronic bug detection services also cover a broad spectrum. This includes:

  • Vehicle tracking device detection
  • Identifying bugs in smartphones and everyday electronics
  • Ensuring boardrooms, homes, and offices are free from unauthorised surveillance.

Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group has over 40 years of continuous experience in the detection of listening devices, Bug detectors conduct bug sweeps, also known as TSCM sweeps, and our experts employ the latest technology and equipment to ensure we are abreast of developments in the field. Our technical operatives are highly skilled and aware of other risks, such as phone spyware, faced by individuals concerned about monitoring today.

Lyonswood is qualified and licensed investigators

Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group does not install listening devices: it is an offence in most circumstances to use listening devices (with a few exceptions) and breaching surveillance devices legislation has serious ramifications, such as jail terms. If in doubt, contact us and we can refer you to a lawyer. Lyonswood holds the appropriate government licences, as well as the competency levels, to undertake electronic bug sweep services and work of this nature. The most important aspect of this bug sweep service is, however, technical experience and qualifications.  Unlike some of the so-called counter-surveillance technicians that hold themselves out to be experts and who are not technically qualified in this field, Lyonswood has over forty years of experience helping individuals and businesses detect bugs and regain control over their privacy.

Corporate Bug Sweep Detection Services

Our bug sweep detection services don’t just include locating listening devices or bugs – we can also provide you with a security risk assessment and then provide strategies you can employ to avoid being listened to. It is not uncommon for us to discover that a method of compromise other than a listening device or bug has been used. In certain circumstances, victims are subject to multiple forms of monitoring. If you’re an operator of a business and considering relocating to a new site or constructing a new premise, Lyonswood can provide you with a bug-sweeping services consultant to assist in minimising the risk of corporate espionage or of being eavesdropped at the new location.

Today, anyone can eavesdrop

In recent times, electronic eavesdropping threats have increased due to the spread of technology that has enabled any ordinary person to procure and install devices that can be purchased very readily via the internet or at your local electronics store. Smartphones are the most commonly available and used listening devices – they make conveniently hidden cameras, can record and store sound or video for up to 30 minutes or longer and are very easily concealed upon a person carrying it into a boardroom or other location.

Over years of residential bug sweeps and security risk assessments, Lyonswood has detected ingenious methods of monitoring, some of which were never contemplated by our clients. Monitoring methods have become more advanced over the years and bugs can now be hidden in everyday items like smoke detectors and stereos. You can count on us as your professional bug sweeper.

Electronic Bug Detection Services – because anyone can be tracked

Most people think of electronic bug sweeps as being conducted in order to detect hidden microphones or cameras. However, electronic bug detection services can also be used to detect vehicle tracking devices. There are a number of reasons why someone might want to track a vehicle, ranging from simple curiosity to more sinister motives.

If you suspect that you are being tracked, a Lyonswood bug sweep can help. Our experienced sweepers will conduct a thorough search of your vehicle and identify any GPS tracking devices that may have been placed on it. As part of our bug-sweeping services, we will then provide you with advice on how to deal with the situation and protect your privacy.

What to do if you believe you have been bugged

If you believe that your telephones or premises are being listened to or bugged by unauthorised persons, we ask you to be cautious about how you go about the detection. In the first instance, if you believe that information has been intercepted via listening devices or bugs, you should definitely not discuss that suspicion within the confines of the area you believe is being unlawfully intercepted. The safest place to discuss your problem is away from those premises and not over landline telephones. It is possible that if your business premises are being bugged then it is likely your home premises and car could also be bugged or tracked.

To contact Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group, the most secure way is via a mobile phone or email that is not connected to the premises you suspect are bugged. Computer spyware is also easily procured and installed and this is one of the fastest-growing areas of eavesdropping. If calling on a mobile phone make sure you are away from your premises and not within a motor vehicle, as this may also be fitted with a listening device.

We at Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group understand that the bug sweep detection of listening devices or bugs cannot always be carried out during normal trading hours for discretionary reasons, and we can call upon your premises 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
