A good example of product from REI is the Video Pole Camera (VPC-64/VPX-64), which can make inspections around corners, behind objects that are movable, drop ceilings and many other spots that can be hard to survey. There are actually two compact devices included that are easy to use. With a large color monitor, LED illumination for dark areas, no external cables and high portability, the cameras are lightweight and very easy to handle.

Another great device for businesses is the OMS 2000 Omni Masking Speaker. The omnidirectional speakers can generate acoustic noise for drop ceilings, closets, air ducts, air spaces, or crawl spaces.
The main role of these devices is to provide assurance to a business that it is not under surveillance. For instance, generating acoustic noise can be beneficial in the cancellation of any listening device that could steal information.
One of the new devices from REI is the Oscor Green Spectrum Analyzer and is able to detect and locate anomalous and disruptive radio frequency transmissions. The device allows site surveys for detecting misuse of various radio frequencies.
Fast: scans 24GHz in 1 second ensuring spectrum activity is captured (2,000,000 data points per second)
Does not require additional antennas: built-in auto switching antenna system to 24 GHz means no additional antennas or cables are required
Touch screen pan, zoom, drag and move
Portable and lightweight: weighs only 9.6lbs/4.4kg
2-3 hour run time on battery
Quickly identify localized RF energy transmissions of all types of modulation
Easily Map RF Traces: Reference and target traces are quickly captured, stored, and compared (including differences) for rapid analysis
Quickly Generate Signal lists
Spectrogram (Waterfall) Display generates spectrogram of receiver traces over time
Provides bench-top Spectrum Analyzer capabilities in portable design specifically for RF security surveys
Built in demodulators: AM, FM, SSB, Sub-carrier, and video (displayed on screen)
IF output, 25MHz wide centered at 75MHz
Real-time frequency update and display while simultaneously demodulating
Touch screen interface
Built-in software (no separate laptop required)
TALAN [ Telephone and Line Analyzer ]
For detecting phone line intrusions Talan can be helpful, as it is a VoIP analysis piece of software. Talan has Voice-over Internet Protocol. Digital and analogue phones systems can be verified for the existence of phone taps, or other devices used for surveillance.
Combines multiple testing capabilities into a single piece of equipment
Automatic internal pair switching matrix performs tests on all pair combinations
Quickly performs common test functions including:
Multimeter tests (voltage, current, resistance, capacitance)
RF Broadband Detector (up to 8GHz)
Spectrum Analyzer (up to 85MHz)
High Gain Audio Amplifier
Bias Generator ±80 VDC
Audio Oscilloscope with active input (20Hz to 20KHz)
Digital Demodulation to confirm that the telephone line is not passing audio
Frequency Domain Reflectometer (FDR) to check for taps on the line
Line Non-Linear Junction Detector (NLJD) Functionality to detect electronics connected to a line
NLJD Line Trace Probe for tracing wires and locating electronics
Multi-Test Database System provides the ability to perform multiple tests, on all pair combinations, storing data in a database for comparison against other lines and historical comparison
An older device, the Blue Oscor Spectrum Analyzer was the winner of Security Products Reader’s Choice Award in 2010. REI can also provide a device that can be used by prison facilities for detection of contraband mobile phones.
The warranty provided by REI can include all the upgrades that can be necessary during the first year after purchase. One of the many goals of the company is to maintain their clients happy, so they request some of their equipment for verification after six months from purchase, even if the devices seem to be in perfect condition. The technicians who make the repairs are the same ones who tested them after they were made and the turnaround time for repairs is of one, or two days.
Finding real spy gear is not a hard thing today. Due to the latest technology developments, counter-surveillance equipment is available in all sizes and can fit all needs, for affordable prices.
