The Use Of Technology In Private Investigations

Investigation inspection audit business concept on virtual screen.

Today, we can no longer do anything without leaving a digital trace behind. From Find My Phone apps to online banking, everything we do can be accessed by someone who is looking for that information. While the notion can be disconcerting as we go about our day to day activities, when it comes to private investigations, technology can be the key to cracking a case. It is much to hide than ever before thanks to the use of technology in private investigations.

Location Enabling Apps and Spy Software on Phones

Most of us make use of location enabling apps on our phones. Going beyond apps that are designed to help you locate your phone if you lose it, today users can even enable apps like Facebook to trace their location. More sophisticated spy software can be downloaded on an individual’s phone and works by intercepting the cellular network signals to determine their location. This not only enables PIs to keep track of their whereabouts but can also notify them of user activity on the phone. Such software can also be downloaded on tablets and computers.

Smart Locks

Today, many apartment and office buildings make use of keycards or fobs instead of the traditional lock and key system. Paired with data collection devices, PIs can track who is in the building at any given time as well as who has accessed the building through the unique IDs assigned to each keycard or fob.

Hidden Cameras

Pointing a security camera at someone is the best way of ensuring they will not act authentically. Today, PIs make use of hidden cameras disguised as a variety of items – teddy bears, clocks, air fresheners and more – to get the evidence they need. However, these have their limitations as once the subject moves out of view, they are unable to capture the necessary footage. Enter wearable hidden cameras in the form of watches and even glasses, which can move with the subject.

Sound Amplifiers

What happens when a PI needs to zoom in on a conversation between two people in a noisy environment? These nifty devices known as sound amplifiers allow PIs to pick up on conversations conducted at whisper level.
