Once only the survey of government agencies and police forces, spying equipment has now become available to the mass public for a variety of uses. These products are used to protect property, both personal and business, and for appropriate use in many other places as well. Though most people aren’t spies, these products can be used in many other realms, particularly the business realm, to help gather information and provide a recording of events. Additionally, many smaller law enforcement agencies use these devices to help collect information on suspects as well.
Whatever the circumstance, here are five major types of spy equipment for local Private Investigators in Baton Rouge.
Micro-Recorders. These devices are probably one of the most commonly sought because they provide a convenient way to record private conversation either in person or from a distance. Many of these devices are very small or disguised as other objects such as pens or cigarette holders. They can also be used wirelessly to make them even more subtle.
Micro-Cameras. Just like audio devices, these products can be used to record visual information either in video or pictures. They are usually disguised or are very tiny. Many operate wirelessly for even more convenience in hiding them.
Anti-Spy Devices. However, spying goes both ways. Anti-spying devices are used in a variety of guises, but they all have the aim at detecting possible monitoring. These can be used to detect hidden camera lenses, phone taps, or to listen for any possible recording microphones. Difficult to come, expensive, and by no means tiny, they are nonetheless vital to catching a spy in the act.
Night Vision Goggles. Used for a huge number of applications including law enforcement, these devices use the low levels of light always present at night and magnify it to provide enough ambient light to see in the dark. These devices can be used as binoculars or as full on head-strapped visors.
Signal Jammers. Almost used exclusively by law enforcement, these products create ‘dead’ zones for radio and even cellular transmissions to prevent any possible communication from a location. These products are helpful in isolating individual or groups during severe circumstances like police raids.
Though many of these devices are quite specialized and expensive, they may be the one tool to help a law enforcement agency or a business help capture any possible wrongdoers trying to cause damage to people and property. Though used for serious work, these products are also fun for spy enthusiasts as well.
