BlueSleuth™ Bluetooth Detector

BlueSleuth™ Bluetooth skimmer locator is a handheld receiver dedicated to detect and track hidden and illegal bluetooth card skimmers and other rogue bluetooth and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) devices. These wireless devices include card skimmers hidden inside ATM, gas pump, and vending machines. Typical skimmer inspections (visually) of a single gas pump can take 30 minutes but BlueSleuth inspects all nearby pumps in a few seconds. BlueSleuth includes a direction finding antenna for real time RSSI (dBm) of bluetooth and BLE detection from a distance for location pinpointing.

BlueSleuth allows law enforcement to isolate a single gas pump within a large gas station for example. This saves hours of tedious searching through kiosks and devices for hidden bluetooth card skimmers. BlueSleuth automatically alerts users to known skimmer device IDs in use such as HC-05, FREE2MOVE and HC-08 while also allowing users to investigate all other nearby devices and even criminals that wirelessly connect to these devices to retrieve stolen credit card numbers. In addition to locating bluetooth card skimmers, BlueSleuth is ideal for TSCM (Technical Surveillance Counter Measures) teams locating hidden wireless bluetooth bugs, microphones, and earpieces.

BlueSleuth can also be used to detect distracting or illegal contraband bluetooth devices such as smartphones, earbuds, MP3 players, fitness trackers and smartwatches. These devices can violate “NO WIRELESS ZONES” and pose a serious security threats to government, military and law enforcement facilities. BlueSleuth has become a standard issue tool for weights & measures and agricultural inspectors, fuel dispensing service providers and law enforcement.
