Working With Bug Detecting Gadgets

A bug detector is a device that is able to locate and/or disable electronic spy equipment like microphones, cameras, and GPS tracking equipment. Law enforcement institutions, military counter-intelligence agencies, criminals, as well as regular people who are suspicious of being overheard typically make use of bug detectors. Bug detectors are typically compact, portable, and have many display functions to alert the user to a “bug.”

How bug detectors work? A bug detector is basically a radio receiver that can pick up electromagnetic impulses which are broadcasted from an electronic device or specifically, a bug. Rather than changing these intercepted radio broadcasts into data or audio, the bug detector simply lights up and sounds an alarm each time it receives a powerful frequency. By moving a bug detector around to nearby objects, it has the capacity to notify the user to hidden bugs.
