We are a small team of experts in advanced & unique privacy solutions, we have gained the confidence of governments, diplomats, intelligence agencies, and military organizations around the world. Our commitment to safeguarding confidential spoken information is evident in our state-of-the-art countersurveillance recording jammers. These devices boast forensic-proof protection and continuously evolving technology, offering extensive and adaptable coverage in various settings. This positions our jammers as a revolutionary tool in the realm of countersurveillance.
A: Yes, our counter-surveillance jammers are 100% legal worldwide. The key distinction that ensures their legality is that they do not emit RF (radio frequency) signals. Our devices operate using ultrasonic technology, which is not regulated in the same way as RF devices, allowing for their legal use in a variety of settings and countries. Our Anti Recording Jammers are deployed globally, earning trust from privacy-conscious individuals, businesses, embassies, government institutions, and Fortune 100 companies for asset protection.
A: Our jammers utilize advanced ultrasonic technology. This means they produce high-frequency sound waves that are beyond the range of human hearing, these sound waves are emitted in different ranges and work together to create a diverse array of jamming signals across distinct bandwidths to target a multitude of different microphones. The innovative approach involves collaboration of signals to form a comprehensive wideband signal injection array and allows our jammers to remain effective at disrupting recording devices without the use of RF signals. Our Ultrasonic Jammers also employ an advanced technology known as the Differential Gain Control (DGC) mechanism, which leverages weaknesses of non-linearity inherent in microphones. This innovative mechanism amplifies the transmission power of ultrasonic waves, systematically disabling every microphone within each electronic device. This not only ensures the effective thwarting of unauthorized recordings but also signifies a significant advancement in security measures.
The Scarab's jamming signal cannot be easily reverse-engineered and filtered out using audio forensic software due to its use of ultrasonic technology. Unlike traditional white noise jammers, which emit a continuous noise that can be filtered out with some effort, The Scarab disrupts the initial signal processing of microphones by interfering with the microphone's ability to convert sound into electrical signals in real-time. This interference occurs at the fundamental level of signal conversion, making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for audio forensic software to reconstruct the original audio signal from the jammed output. Additionally, The Scarab's differential gain control mechanism further enhances its jamming capabilities, making it highly effective against unauthorized recordings. All of our advanced jammers feature the same capabilities as the Scarab.
A: Since our jammers do not emit RF signals, they are typically not detectable by standard RF detection equipment. Their ultrasonic operational mode makes them discreet and unobtrusive in various environments.
A: Our jammers are designed to be effective in a variety of environments, from personal spaces to business settings. However, the effectiveness can vary depending on the size of the area and the type of materials in the surroundings, as ultrasonic waves interact differently with different surfaces. Our jammers are purposed for use indoors, and work exceptionally well within a closed setting (an office, boardroom, or a vehicle) and can provide 100% efficacy in disabling any microphone within the designated range of the model using line of sight.
A: Our jammers are designed with user-friendliness in mind. They are generally easy to set up and operate, requiring minimal technical knowledge, with the vast majority keeping in mind a "turn on and deploy" ease of use. Instructions are provided with each device, and our customer service team is always available to assist with any queries.
A: Our jammers are specifically targeted at disabling microphones and recording devices without affecting the overall functionality of other electronic equipment. They are safe to use in environments with various electronic devices, however, users with hearing aids should be extra cautious to not deploy our jammers within their direct line of sight.
A: The effective range can vary depending on the model, some models are effective at 1-5 metres and some are effective beyond 10-20 metres. For instance, our smaller models like the Firefly are ideal for more intimate settings, while larger models like the Cicada are designed for broader coverage, we also offer much larger jammers that have a very intense focal beam such as our 'Case' model. We offer a wide selection to meet any of your needs, be it close proximity or long-range. Detailed specifications about the range are available on each product’s description page. If you are unsure which model would suit your specific space, please reach out to us and we will guide you.
A: Payments are accepted via credit cards (direct checkout on our website) or wire transfers.
A: Yes, we ensure global reach through reliable international shipping brokers, delivering your order regardless of your location.
A: We are Canadian, and every single product we offer is meticulously made by our small team in Canada.
A: White noise jammers operate differently from ultrasonic ones; they generate white noise that spans the full noise spectrum, effectively masking sound. However, all of our jammers employ ultrasonic technology, oscillating across specific frequencies at very high speeds, directly interfering with a microphone's signal processing capabilities (since sound is converted into electrical signals in real time by microphones).
The crucial distinction lies in the aftermath of jamming. The interference caused by white noise jammers like the Rambler, for example, can be mitigated using post-processing software. In contrast, all our jammers disrupt the initial signal conversion process in microphones, rendering any attempt to reverse the jamming effect futile with audio forensic tools.
No problem, it's worth noting that our largest jammer isn't always necessary. Ultrasonics exhibit a fascinating behavior wherein waves reverberate within enclosed spaces and bounce off objects. This aspect should be taken into account, particularly if your jammer usage will primarily be indoors.
