BlueSleuth™ Bluetooth skimmer locator is a handheld receiver dedicated to detect and track the location of covert and illegal bluetooth card skimmers and the criminals that connect to them.
These wireless devices include fake ATM, gas pump, and vending machine card skimmers. BlueSleuth includes a direction finding antenna for real time RSSI (dBm) of bluetooth and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) detection from a distance and for pinpointing location.
This allows law enforcement to identify a single gas pump in a large gas station or an ATM in a crowded mall for example. It also allows security teams to locate 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 curb distracting or illegal contraband bluetooth devices such as smartphones, earbuds, MP3 players, fitness trackers and smartwatches. Many of these devices violate a “NO WIRELESS ZONE” that some government, military and law enforcement facilities must abide by.
