Multi-Use RF Bug Detector
A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL DETECTOR AT A REASONABLE PRICE
Offering the same level of detection of higher-end signal finders is one of the main reasons this RF bug detection device is one of the most popular counter-surveillance devices. If you need to find an eavesdropping threat, wireless camera, or a GPS tracker on a budget, this bug sweeper is an excellent option. The adjustable antenna and sensitivity provide for a dialed-in search that eliminates area interference. While the beep, acoustic, and visible LED verification deliver a dual identification option that can ID the specific signal source of the transmission.
The market is flooded with cheap illegal bugs, and their sophisticated signal types require a modern protocol detection device. These signals include Bluetooth, WiFi, GSM, and 3G/4G/5G cell phone transmitters, to name a few. This bug sweeper scans for these modulations, and it even has the ability to identify hard-to-find low transmitting radio frequency devices.
The acoustic verification mode can intercept the eavesdropping bugs' live transmission and play it directly through the detector. If the bugging device utilizes an encoded signal, a high-intensity static noise will be heard, but using a more classical broadcast, whatever is playing in the room will be playing out from the device's speaker.
This is a cost-effective solution that works in the same ranges as the Pro digital RF detector. Similar features include an audio verification mode and a LED corresponding indicator of what specific signal is detected. This device detects radio frequencies within the 50 MHz to 6.0 GHz range with no gaps, including modern and classical bugging equipment, GSM, 3G/4G/5G, WiFi, standard registration signals, wireless, and digital IP devices, to name a few. The LED lights feature will illuminate when a CAM, bug, LTE, or WiFi signal is detected.
Search for wireless bugs in homes, vehicles, offices, rooms, body transmitters, and potentially hacked equipment such as a WiFi printer. The Multi-use sweeper comes with rechargeable batteries and even an Aux port for headphones if the sweep needs to be done covertly.
HOW TO FIND A GPS TRACKER WITH THE MULTI-USE RF
This detector is simple to operate and works on a broad range of wireless devices. Perfect for both beginners and professional users, the bright LED indicator lights are clear to read, and adjusting for a specific usage is easy. It is important to consider what activity you're trying to prevent when using a bug detection unit and take the necessary precautions to ensure the best results.
If a vehicle sweep is needed, it's best to isolate yourself from any interference that can interfere with the scan. This means limiting any cross signals to a minimum and disable or turn off anything in the vehicle that could be sending a signal. A quick scan of your manual or contacting a vehicle-certified technician is highly recommended.
Once this step is performed, it's also highly recommended to take the vehicle to an area with minimal interference. This ensures that the device is not picking up a neighbors' WiFi or other drivers operating their cell phones. The RF locator can detect signals up to 25ft away (dependent on the type of transmission), so going to a rural area will generate greater results.
Before you turn off your cell phone to prevent it from interfering, turn on the device, and shorten the antenna to just one bar. Crank up the sensitivity dial and use your cell phone to watch a live stream video. Wave the unit back and forth towards the smartphone and slowly adjust the sensitivity down until it starts only to go crazy when pointed in the phone's direction. Minimal pings are expected when the device is not pointed at the cellular device, but a distinctive difference should be observed.
Now turn off the smart device and fully extend the antenna and begin to drive. Keep the RF signal detector nearby and wait for the signal to spike. Unfortunately, tracking devices do not all work the same. Some send out signals as quickly as every few seconds, while others send them out a few times a day and so on. There is no cut and dry solution to how often a tracker will give off its location data, so multiple tests and scans are suggested.
When the indicator bar begins to spike, note how much time in between the spikes occurred. Are they a few seconds apart? A few minutes? Once you've identified that something is, in fact, transmitting at a specific interval, it's time to shorten the antenna so a more isolated sweep can be performed.
Pullover the vehicle and hold the detection unit at a specific spot on the vehicle. If the intensity bar graph does nothing, drive a little more, and repeat. If the detector identifies a strong signal, a search of the area is required. Sometimes wires and metal can act as an antenna extension giving off phantom signals unrelated to the search.
Regardless of the signal detector, physical searches are always necessary for a successful sweep. Even if a device is found, it is also recommended to continue the sweep if another more cleverly hidden tracker is present. Remove the found unit from the vehicle and extend the antenna again, drive, and see if the RF sweeper is picking up another signal.
WHY CHOOSE THE MULTI-USE RF BUG DETECTOR INSTEAD OF THE PRO DIGITAL RF?
Do you need a sophisticated device to find a wireless bug at a reasonable price? Do you not mind dialing in and adjusting the sensitivity? Is it more important to find if something is transmitting than to distinguish it from an innocuous device? Then this bug sweeper is exactly what you need.
This unit identifies almost the same 50 MHz to 6.0 GHz frequencies as the professional digital RF detector but at half the cost. This is a cut and dry device designed specifically to locate any modern or classic eavesdropping device. The bright LEDs visually display when a bug-type signal is identified, and the beep and acoustic mode allows for multiple forms of notification. One of the advantages of this bug finder is its ability to perform covert sweeps. The added Aux jack will allow for headphones to be worn and is perfect for searching covertly for listening devices in a room.

Q: What exactly can I find using the RF detector?
A: The RF detection allows you to find signals given off from a wireless device transmitting within the 50 MHz to 6.0 GHz frequency range.
Q: Can I find any recorder using this?
A: No, This locator is used to find radio frequency transmissions. If the recorder doesn't produce a signal, this device will not be able to detect it.
Q: Can I find hidden cameras with this detector?
A: If the hidden camera is wireless and transmits, then it can be detected by this, but if the camera doesn't, then this won't be able to detect the camera.
Q: I am detecting signals everywhere. Does this mean my entire house is bugged?
A: You want to make sure everything that might send signals is turned off if possible. Modems, smartphones, tablets, smart TV, etc... can all send a signal located by this unit. If you cannot turn off these devices, I would suggest one of our higher-end models that will distinguish between the types of signals you are detecting. This will help eliminate some of the signals you might detect. This detector has a sensitivity control. You want to lower this until you don't detect a signal, then start your sweep of the area.
Q: My detector is out of batteries. What do I do?
A: The device comes with a rechargeable battery. Plug it into an electrical outlet using the provided charger to recharge it.
