Walabot DIY Wall Scanner
The Walabot Multifunction Wall Scanner uses Radio Frequency (RF) technology to provide advanced detection capabilities. The tool is a cutting edge device which is paired with an Android phone (see specifications for details) to produce a visual image of what is inside concrete and drywall up to 4 inches (10 cm) deep. It can show users what is in their wall in multiple modes (Pan mode, Image mode, and Expert mode).
The Walabot detects metal objects, wood studs, wires, pipes and can show movement behind walls. Walabot can be used by contractors, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and those in need of advanced wall imaging capabilities. The advanced technology is also perfect for ambitious DIYers and those who want real-time visual images of what is hidden within a wall.

Walabot’s Multiple Modes Work Together: Pan Mode, Image Mode and Expert Mode
Pan Mode: Panoramic view of a full wall line, with distances.
To use pan mode, hold the Walabot against the wall, calibrate and scan from one side of the wall to the other. Pan mode will show an image of objects within the wall and approximately where they are located. Pan facilitates a quick overview of where studs are placed in the wall.
Different classifications of objects like wooden studs, metal pipes, and plastic pipes will create unique colored stripes in the image viewer.
Each type of object will be defined by the stripes and can be used for future reference in either Image or Expert mode.
Image Mode: visual classification of metalic and wooden studs, pipes, and wires.
To use image mode, hold the Walabot against the wall and move over the objects which were identified in Pan mode.
Walabot RF technology will analyze the objects and translate the results into images which are identified by type according to the results.
Results of RF readings can identify wooden studs, metal studs, pipes, and wires.
Expert Mode: see the raw signals from the Walabot sensor.
To use expert mode, hold the Walabot against the wall and move over the objects seen in Pan and Image mode.
Expert mode gives a direct view into the unflitered RF produced image. This image can show location in more detail, curves in pipes and wires, the intersection between two objects, movement in real time and can be used to confirm objects found in Pan and Image mode.
You can focus the expert mode by managing the intensity bar to better see the objects.
