Don’t let your privacy be violated by someone illegally bugging your home or office. If you or your company is concerned that your office or home may be under electronic surveillance of any kind, ACI can help.

Notwishstanding the laws designed to protect us from these types of invasions of privacy, bugs and wiretaps are regularly used to spy on people involved in litigation, divorce, sensitive business and well-to-do individuals. Imagine if all of your conversations with friends, business associates, your lawyer, doctor or accountant were being monitored by someone!

We also find that messy litigation is another major driver for electronic eves dropping. Even if you are not involved in business or litigation, everyday individuals have been victimized by criminals who gained access to telephone data lines using electronic bugs. Law enforcement gets too many calls from “unbalanced” people who claim that the government is bugging their house to pay attention to legitimate concerns like yours. Furthermore, most law enforcement agencies are not properly equipped and trained to conduct an effective sweep. The phone company is also not available to assist you. We never suggest that you call the telephone company for assistance. This set of circumstances leaves you on your own. That’s were we come in.

What to do if you suspect that your home or office is being bugged:

  • Watch what you say and NEVER discuss the possibility of a bug being in place while you are inside, outside, or near any suspect location or in your automobile.
  • Never call from any type of cordless phone, cellular telephone, PCS phone, or any other type of wireless device.
  • Don’t use your computer. Bugging a computer if every bit as easy as bugging a room or telephone for audio recording.
  • Do not trust any type of spread spectrum telephone or fax machine line as they are very easy to monitor.
  • Have someone who specializes in TSCM discuss your concerns in detail before you make the decision to hire them. Never call the TSCM company from your office or home. Call from a relative or friends house, payphone or another business.
  • Keep your composure. Assess what damage could have been done and if you want to leave a bug in place to provide disinformation.
  • DO NOT Try to find the bug or wiretap yourself
  • DO NOT Contact the telephone company to help
  • DO NOT Contact the FBI to help
  • DO NOT Try to get the local police to help
  • DO NOT Buy spy shop or internet bug detectors


In the United States millions of dollars worth of listening devices and bugs are sold every day. Most of these devices are sold via the internet, from “spy stores” and from unscrupulous private investigators. Most of these bugging devices cost very little and are easily detected, but highly sophisticated products may be purchased for under one thousand dollars.To make matters worse, anyone with a basic understanding of electronics and access to a hardware store can build an eavesdropping device. Try typing in “Bug detector kit” on any major search engine and see how many choices you have to build your own. Easily available commercially are micro cams and bugs like these two:

ACI can find the bug and let you get some sleep again, quickly and affordably.

We STRONGLY recommend that you DO NOT “do it yourself” by purchasing an “electronic divining rod” from a spy shop site. These devices, when they do work, only detect one type of bug and will give you nothing more than a false sense of security and $200.00 less dollars. Once you go looking for the bug on your own, if it does exist, the person who planted it there will be alerted to your efforts and come and get it before a professional can help.
