Surelock’s Bug Sweeps

Electronic Countermeasures Sweeps (Bug Sweeps) is a professional service we are called upon much more nowadays, it is the process of detecting and removing hidden surveillance devices or bugs from a location, mainly on behalf of corporate businesses but also some private clients, especially as cyber security is so important in this modern day and age.

Listening devices and covert cameras can so easily be purchased, most often coming from China, these are easy to install, but there are also sophisticated devices that are professionally installed and can sit there dormant until they are required and are then remotely activated. The threat level is literally changing regularly so you have to be careful and keep up to date.

We successfully carry out regular sweeps for our retained clients periodically during the year, or if there is a particular event such as a sensitive business meeting.

Surelock has a dedicated engineer who has over 30 years’ experience, both in the police and as an electronic engineer, and a backup team. Most of the equipment we use is purpose built. We conduct a full electronic sweep of the premises, then using three different handheld wands and a highly sensitive bench top detector for near field examinations of the respective rooms / offices, computers, and telephone equipment. Finally and very importantly a finger-tip search examining power supplies, ceiling tiles, thus when we complete an ECS search we can tell you if there is anything there or we will evidence what was found.

GSM mobile phones are being used more, the client is engaged interviewing someone, who at the conclusion asks to use the bathroom, leaving their mobile in the room. This can be accessed remotely so they can hear what is being said about them.

We can also sweep your car for covert listening devices / cameras and trackers which are now commonly used by criminals, the paparazzi and those wishing to gather intelligence about you.

At the end of the operation, we can genuinely tell the client that there is nothing there or indeed find out that there was, that is what our clients rely on! What you say in private is your business, keeping it that way is ours.

Our clients of many years range from Financial Institutions, Law Firms, Blue Chip Companies, Local Authorities, Premier League Football Clubs, Celebrities and Private Individuals, they are not hiding anything illegal but just wish to protect their business or home, especially when important decisions / boards meetings are taking place.

Your privacy is worth protecting, if you have a need for this professional service, please contact us
