The all new Profinder 1206i is an excellent counter surveillance bug sweeping device for home or small office use. A professional bug sweeper designed with for the modern world of sophisticated analogue and digital devices - Now with new sophisticated antennas.
The new improved Profinder 1206i is one of a new class of a counter surveillance bug sweeping devices offered by Spy Equipment UK.
Unlike most typical radio frequency searching devices it can detect modern 'hidden' bugs which use such protocols as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Such bugs as these, especially Bluetooth types, are practically undetectable by the majority of other RF detectors due to their very low transmission output power and a special type of modulation. The Profinder 1206i uses a separate channel with a high, (2.44 GHz) frequency pre-selector to detect and locate Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with a much higher sensitivity. The unit also then processes the demodulated signal in order to identify which protocol has been detected.
In addition the unit can detect all types of 'conventional' bugging devices (FM-modulated transmitters, UHF Transmitters, digital transmitters, GSM-bugs, etc.) using its distinctive features, which include active correlation that is effectively for inspecting high potential bug locations using probing sound impulses, while monitoring the 'demodulation' bar graph feature.
This superb counter surveillance unit is also able to distinguish types of digital transmission: GSM, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and DECT. It has 4 working modes: silent / sound / vibration / mixed and has a wide dynamic range thanks to the 16-segment bar graph. This latest version includes the extra antenna allowing the device to avoid interference from external sources in cities or near broadcasting towers etc.
Will this device find all radio frequency bugs?
The Profinder 1206i unit has 2 frequency ranges, up to is designed to pick up most commonly available bugs that operate in these frequency ranges. Because it has dual focus capability it is able to concentrate on specific ranges and therefore offers good sensitivity and some more general RF scanners.
Can the Profinder 1206i unit detect voice recorders?
No, voice recorders to not transmit a frequency and therefore cannot be detected by RF detection equipment. A Non-Linear Junction Detector is the only type of device that can detect this type of bugging device. This is why physical search is paramount.
Can the Profinder 1206i detect wireless cameras?
This product is able to detect wireless cameras that transmit on 1.2GHz and has a dedicated 2.4GHz range, but does not cover the rare 5.8GHz wireless cameras. it is not sensitive enough to detect RF from 3G camera units. If 3G cameras are a viable threat then a unit that focuses on 3G signals is required.
Can I hear through the device when an audio bug is detected?
The Profinder 1206i does have audio demodulation, so this is possible if an analogue bug is detected.
Will the Profinder 1206i easily detect tracking devices?
It is possible to use this product to identify tracker transmissions. However we offer other devices with burst bug detection or dedicated GSM/3G ranges that are ideal for tracking devices that transmit data bursts.
