Worried about your privacy and security? Traveling and want to make sure the owner of the vacation rental isn't a creep?

The SG-2 is our favorite 'all-around' bug detector. Trusted by real private investigators, the SG-2 our favorite choice for keeping your space safe.

The SG-2 can find most wireless cameras and microphones. Plus, it detects hardwired cameras, which is an incredibly rare feature these days. If you'd rather manually look for cameras, it also has a camera lens detector. This covers pretty much all the bases for securing your space.

Using the SG-2 is easy. It detects both analog and digital bugs, with lights that get brighter and vibrations that intensify as you get closer to the bug.

To get the best results, turn off your wireless router and phones before using it. The SG-2 gives you peace of mind, knowing your space is free from unwanted surveillance.

Hiring a private investigator for bug detection can cost over $400. With the SG-2, you can do it yourself for a fraction of the price. Our detailed instructions guide you through the process, and we’re always here via email if you need help.

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 goes to a receiver, which could be a tape recorder or even a person in a van, like you see in movies. Yes, law enforcement actually does that!

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 SG-2, and pay attention to the LEDs. If it senses a weak signal, a couple of LEDs might light up and turn off. 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.

The SG-2 also detects hardwired cameras by sensing tiny vibrations they make. This only works within a few inches of the camera, but is an absolutely great way of confirming something is a camera or not.

Use the camera lens finder to spot hidden lenses reflecting light. This feature helps you find even the most discreetly placed cameras, like pinhole cameras.

Contact Us First

Please, do not send us anything without first contacting us! It’s very difficult on our customer care team when we get packages that we’re not expecting. They usually have no name, order number, or reason for return. 

We’re not mind readers, unfortunately, so please get in touch with us first!

Items That Aren’t Refundable:

Some of our items aren’t refundable. The reason is unfortunate - we've had customers out there who buy from us to quickly to get the answers they want, and then return the items to get a refund. The product, it solved their problem, and now they don’t want it anymore. 

It's an underhanded tactic that’s difficult to fight, and we can’t stay in business by being a rental company. Because of this, we aren’t able to offer refunds on the following products:

• Software
• GPS trackers
• Bug detectors
• Nanny cameras


Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

    Great tactical instrument.

    I love the ease by which I found two bugs and also found the precise direction that proton emitting devices were coming from. Great investment in peace of mind.

    It works great! Full featured device!

    Took me some study and practice to understand and get functional with all the features. I stay in hotels and VRBO's frequently and always pack my detector with me. Recently scanned a VRBO I wa s renting and discovered a camera in the thermostat! I hung a washcloth over it and felt comfortable I had cleared the premises. Highly recommended! 5 stars.
