If you’re looking for a tried, tested, and approved bug tracker - this is the one. The T-9 has been around for well over 7 years and is a favorite of security professionals. Although technology changes quickly, bug technology is still the same, which means the T-9 can still get it done.
It’s an RF detector, which stands for ‘radio frequency’, and can find most wireless cameras and microphones. It also detects your wireless router and phones, so you’ll need to turn those off before you use this detector. The T-9 can detect nearly wireless bugs.
How To Use It:
The T-9 is able to find both analog and digital bugs, which essentially do the same thing. As it gets closer to finding the bug, the lights get brighter and the device starts vibrating. It also has a great audio assist feature to save you more time - turn it on, and you can hear what the bug hears. That can help pinpoint the room the bug is in.
Private investigators usually have bug detection in their list of services, but it usually costs more to hire an investigator than to get the detector yourself. Our detailed instructions go over the whole process if you’re unfamiliar with how it works, or you can email us anytime.

People That Get This:
Work as a private investigator or similar
Want to sweep their offices for bugs
Work for congressmen and senators. and other politicians
Here's How It Works
When someone uses the term ‘bug’, they’re usually talking about a covert device that sends a wireless signal. That device could be a hidden camera or microphone. The signal it sends usually goes anywhere from 50-500 feet, but it could go further.
The signal that’s being sent goes to a receiver. That receiver could be send to a tape recorder, or even a person camping inside a van like you see in movies. Yes, law enforcement actually does that! That signal can be detected with a bug detector.
So, you think you’re being bugged. Turn off all your electronics that emit signals, like wireless routers and cordless phones. Flip the power switch on the detector, and pay attention to the LEDs on the bug detector. If it senses a weak signal, a couple of LEDs might flicker.
The stronger the signal, the brighter the LEDs get. As you walk around the room, pay attention to those lights. If there really is a wireless bug, you’ll be able to pinpoint where it is.
What's In The Box:

The T-9 has been produced for over 7 years, and it’s probably the most popular counter surveillance tool with private investigators that work with us. The audio assist feature can be very helpful, and no other bug detector has that benefit.
The next step up from this is more than twice the price, which makes the T-9 a great choice.
