Private Investigator – A Watch the Records Audio

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Private investigators or private detectives who are in the field are always risking their lives because of the nature of their job. Nobody wants to be followed or surveyed, especially if consent is not given. However in order to gather data about a person, surveillance is necessary. Gathering data would be more accurate if the suspect or the target person does not know that he or she is being watched or surveyed otherwise he or she would act unnaturally towards the private investigator and private detective. This is also the main reason why private investigators and private detectives should be very careful in conducting their investigation and to painstakingly take a lot of care not to arouse any kind of suspicion. Sometimes it is imperative to gather data from the target person directly by asking him or her several questions or basic questions and sometimes it is also important to gather data from the target person when he or she is interacting with another person. The main problem of a private investigator and a private detective is on how to record the conversation without arousing any suspicion.

This is the reason why private investigators and private detectives are employing the use of covert techniques or using covert recording gadgets or tools. One most common gadget is a watch recorder. This is a turquoise blue leather strapped watch that has one gigabyte of flash memory which gives the watch hundreds of hours of recording capacity, which is very handy especially if a conversation would lasts for several hours. The watch is equipped with a set of earphones which allows the users to listen to the playback recording of the audio. The Watch is equipped with rechargeable batteries which allow power in record mode for around 4.5 hours. The watch is shock proof and the microphone is positioned in such a way that it would allow efficient recording while wearing the watch on the wrist. This truly is a gadget for every private investigator and private detective.

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

In the field of surveillance and investigation, hard evidences such as documents are required, this is especially so when investigation corporate violations or tracking money trails. The world of corporate law however favours those with concrete evidence over hearsays that is why obtaining hard evidences such as audio, video and documents proving the innocence or guilt of a person being accused is the paramount concern of every private investigators and private detectives hired for such purpose. The most compelling and most convincing evidence in cases of corporate fraud are the different documents that would prove the commission of such fraud. However, for a private investigator and a private detective it is very difficult for them to get hold let alone get a copy of such document evidences. This is because of the fact that the documents may be well hidden and guarded and that copy machines are not readily available, copying the document is the most prudent strategy, as this would not spark any suspicion due to the loss or absence of such document.

This problem was the focus when the pen sized document scanner was developed. The portable pen-sized document scanner is of course not bigger than the size of a normal pen, it has the ability to store up to 200 pages of scanned documents and it is capable of scanning a single page every four seconds. The pen sized document scanner is powered by Lithium batteries, which allows for recharging and of course for portability. It is lightweight with only 40grams to its weight and it is equipped with a 4MB flash memory. It can be connected through the computer for download via its USB 2.0 socket which, through this the pen sized document scanner can also be recharged. Finally, its dual roller guiding system allows the private investigator or private detective to efficiently scan subject documents.

The process of investigation is composed of several strategies and processes, one process or strategy is surveillance, this is where the private investigator and private detectives follow suspects or gather information from target people in a discreet manner. This is because of the fact that once the identity of the private investigator or private detective have been compromised or known to the person being followed the life of the private investigator or private detective will be put at risk.

This is the reason why the private detective or private investigator is equipped with ample protection. Most of the time private investigators and private detectives uses the cover of darkness in order to efficiently gather data from the target person, however this advantage could also prove as a disadvantage because the private investigator may stumble upon objects that may compromise his or her position and ultimately his or her investigation. The use of a flashlight may be the wise thing to do but in a situation where there may be a possibility of putting themselves at risk holding a flashlight may do more harm than good.
Private investigators and private detectives advocate the use of the torchlight. Torch lights look like your conventional flashlight but it comes with a protective capability which produce a high intensity light that would temporarily render an attacker blind giving the private investigator or private detective to run for cover. One of the highly suggested torchlight that should be used is the Tactical 20-225 Lumen torch; this is because the torchlight comes in four modes that allow the user to adjust the light intensity according to the needs of the user in this case the private investigator. The four modes are low, mid, high and strobe, which are set for different purposes and functions.
With this four modes private investigators and private detectives are assured of some degree of protection and holding a torchlight would give more benefit than harm in terms of saving one’s own life.

Protection from unscrupulous people may start by keeping the private investigators’ records or data, one type of data that can easily be accessed by other people is the audio communication between the private detective and the client. It is because of the fact that phone lines are easily being hacked into or accessed by anyone. Private investigators and private detectives must assure their clients that whatever conversation will transpire between them should be kept private to ensure the safety of the information, the private investigator and the client as well.

The 200-XL comes with sophisticated software that would allow users to configure the device according to their needs. Among the different configuration would be the adjustment of the fax send and receive signal levels, which also allows for user identification. The software will only allow user’s full control after passing the password-protected menu.

Private investigators and private detectives can create an exclusive user group that will only allow specific people to use the phone and fax through a customised corporate code established even without any PIN modification. The PC-based software can also be utilised to scramble the telephone number as it generates random telephone number, which mislead recipient of the call who has a caller-id. The 200-XL uses a 128-bit key encryption which makes the encryption difficult to crack or by-pass.

The Truth about Private Investigators

Monday, March 15th, 2010

More often than not people who do not have any background on what private investigator and private detectives do always ask of them astronomical results, this means clients ask too much of the private detective agency in terms of results and deadlines. The reason for asking such impossible results would be because of the client basing his or her concept of a private investigator or a private detective according to what they see in the movies. In the movies a private investigator is portrayed as an individualistic person, working alone on cases, not afraid of anything and confronting criminals straight-up with no hesitations. In order to give you an understanding of a private investigator or a private detective it is important to know the truth in the life of private investigators or private detectives.

First truth is that unlike those being portrayed in the movies a private investigator or private detective does not work alone, we have to understand that a person has his or her limitations and that he or she may not know every aspect in the field of investigation. This is the reason why private investigators works hand-in-hand with other people that have their specific field of specialisation such as the field of law, medicine and forensics. Further, in the field, private detectives and private investigators does not work alone, this is especially true when private detectives conduct surveillance, for the simple explanation that one person cannot be in two places at the same time.

Second truth about private investigators and private detectives is that investigations would last for several days, months and worst-case years. Unlike what is portrayed in the movies or TV shows investigations can conclude as easily and quickly as one day, the investigations may last for several days because of several factors such as careful surveillance and the time consumed before getting the actual result in the different lab tests done.

These two reasons among other reasons are the most common cause why private investigators have to be given realistic and not impossible expectations or output.

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

There are a lot of instances where the Private investigators or private detectives are situated in areas that limit movements and the only way to gather data properly is to capture images without having to compromise the position or location especially if the private investigator or private detective is conducting a surveillance of the target person or suspect. There may also be instances wherein inspections in the house of the target person may be done and there may be an opportunity to locate hidden items but since private investigators and private detectives can only gather information without destroying or moving anything then an appropriate tool that can squeeze into tight spaces should be utilised.

During such tight situations the Flexible Inspection Camera would come in handy, because it is lightweight, very small and is capable of giving image output or capable of looking through tight spaces without the need to remove any wall panels or any appliances. The one meter long and 9.2 millimeter tube was designed to be flexible enough to accommodate proper angling, which is needed to properly position the camera or lens. One notable feature of this Flexible inspection camera is its water resistance making it capable of being utilised in liquids or areas where liquids are abound like drains and engines among others.

The Flexible Inspection Camera is equipped with a 2.4” TFT monitor that is being utilised for live viewing. In addition, the video monitor is equipped with a rechargeable battery pack that is utilised to give the TFT monitor power of up to five hours. To get around angles and corners the Flexible Inspection Camera is also equipped with three attachments, the hook for getting missing or hard to get items, the magnet which also does the same and the mirror for looking through the correct angles and round corners.

Monday, March 8th, 2010

For private investigators and private detectives to get as close as possible to the person being tracked or person being observed for data gathering is an ideal set-up. However, because of the fact that the risk of being discovered by the person being observed is of paramount consideration since the success of the surveillance would rest upon the non-disclosure or non-discovery by the person being observed or surveyed. It is because of this main reason that a private investigator or private detective must employ other means of data gathering techniques, which would involve the use of data gathering devices.

For a private investigator and private detective it is very important to be able to gather data or evidences up close, this is the reason why tools and devices were developed. Gathering data without the target person knowing it would allow the private investigators and private detectives to get data about the person while acting naturally. This means therefore that a device should be installed or placed in the most common area where the target person frequents like his or her office or even at his or her own home.

A camera would do the trick of data gathering but for obvious reasons of course there is a need for the private investigator or private detective to conceal the camera. One helpful tool is the air freshener designed camera. This is a 3G-color camera that is also equipped with a microphone to capture both video and audio of the person being targeted. Because it is 3G there is no concerns about the distance or range of the transmitter, with the air freshener 3G camera private investigators and private detectives can stay away as far as possible. The unit comes with a 300 hours standby time and 1.7 hours monitoring time.

Private Investigator – Tracking your Target through the Covert Asset Tracker

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Surveillance is one of the most tedious duties of a private investigator or a private detective because of the fact that it requires round the clock monitoring. However, private investigators and private detectives are just human and instances may arise wherein the target may already be on the move and the private investigator or private detective may have lost the target from his or her sight. This is the reason why several devices were developed to compensate for any human frailties that may cause the surveillance mission to fail and ultimately see the failure of the whole investigation.

 
For situations where a constant monitoring or twenty-four hours surveillance seems to be impossible to conduct, private investigators and private detectives rely on the Covert Asset Tracker. The Covert Asset Tracker is a device that is similar to the size of a matchbox and is equipped with a magnet that makes it easier to attach to a vehicle or any other metal objects. The Covert Asset Tracker is integrated with the latest technology on Global Positioning System and GPRS or GSM Data Communications system that can pinpoint the exact location of the vehicle or person being tracked. One of the best features of the Covert Asset Tracker, which private investigators and private detectives rely on, is its motion sensor system. The Covert Asset Trackers’ motion sensor functions to activate only when there is a movement from where the CAT is attached, thus if the vehicle where the Covert Asset Tracker is attached starts to move the device will then become activated and tracking will resume. Another feature that the Covert Asset Tracker that proves to be very useful for private detectives and private investigators is the Geo-Fencing facility which would signal the user, specifically the private investigator, if and when the target goes beyond the limits of pre-defined areas.
The Covert Asset Tracking is one of the best devices that could help the private investigator and private detective in his or her pursuit to accomplish his or her investigation.
