WallHound-Pro™ detects and deters visitors and staff from using any PEDs (Personal Electronic Devices) including cellular, wi-fi, bluetooth or BLE devices in secure areas. It works by detecting all nearby wireless devices and activity and alerting security personnel with color-coded flashing and audible alerts. Visual and audio alerts not only serve as a deterrent or reminder to visitors but also identify potential wireless threats by signal strength, timestamp, and other vital parameters. WallHound-Pro is completely self-contained and includes a physical key and passcode touchscreen interface for tamper-resistant settings and control over all parameters.
WallHound-Pro frees up security personnel for more pressing duties and reminds visitors and staff that wireless devices pose a security threat making it ideal for government SCIFs, military checkpoints, correctional facilities, court rooms, border security, critical infrastructure and anywhere that wireless devices can threaten security for everyone.
- Turnkey solution for common wireless threats or PEDs in any secure area or facility
- Color-coded visual & audio alerts that identify wireless source by signal strength, timestamp and more
- Self-contained (no connection to PC) and secure making it the ultimate wireless security guard

Does WallHound Pro identify callers or their phone numbers?
No. WallHound-Pro is a passive RF cellular scanning receiver and deterrent that identifies cellphone activity (both standby mode and active modes) and alerts security personnel. It is a fixed wireless device used by security officers and personnel that require a NO WIRELESS security policy
How far away can I detect mobile phones?
Typical range varies based upon the device and if optional direction finding antennae are used. Bluetooth devices can be detected from about 50 to 100 feet away. Wi-Fi devices can be detected from about 100 to 150 feet away. Cellular devices can be detected about 125 to 250 feet away. These numbers vary even more depending upon RF interference, environment, line of site, placement/installation of unit.
Can I detect phones in standby mode?
WallHound-Pro can detect phones in the standby mode but keep in mind when a phone is ON in standby, it is not constantly transmitting. Phones register to the local cell tower/base stations at different intervals that the tower/carrier determines (could be every few seconds, minutes, and we have seen up to 20 minutes). When a phone registers, it is a short pulse of less than 1 second so the WallHound might only flash once and play the audio alert once instead of continually.
Can WallHound Pro be networked to other devices or security systems?
WallHound does not contain any wired or wireless networking hardware such as an ethernet port but it does contain a USB port for firmware upgrades. This port is only accessible when the security key is used. WallHound-Pro also includes dry contacts that allow it to be triggered from other detection devices such as our SentryHound-Pro.
