The Digiscan Labs Protect 1207i is a versatile counter detector with a detection range of 800 to 7000 MHz.
A compact and complete device whose frequency range allows you to detect a wide range of bugging devices. With 6 channels for different frequency ranges, it can simultaneously detect 6 different kinds of transmissions at a distance much greater than any common RF detector.
Used by engineers or counter-surveillance specialists because of its reliability, however, does not require expertise as its design offers ease of use as well as an understanding of the results.
With 4 operational modes; Silent, Vibration, Visual and Listen you can adjust the device to be tailored to your sweeping needs.
For example, the listening mode will give the following info:
Bluetooth gives a 'crackling' sound
Wi-Fi will produce a 'scratching' sound
GSM gives a 'buzzing' (hum)
DECT is heard as an AC transformer hum
And the visual mode gives extra information to the operator by showing the protocol on the display. The recognition is based on analyzing the demodulated signal and is in most cases sufficiently accurate. This mode is useful when inspecting the RF source.
The detector allows for checking telephone lines, people (mobile phones, Bluetooth transmitters, personal GPS trackers, listening and watching devices), vehicles, rooms, objects, etc.
The device is compatible with the MWA-6 antenna that will increase the detection distance at least 2 times!
Out of band attenuation - 20-45 dB
Antenna - 2 Omni-directional antennas
Detection distance - 1-10 meters
Operation time - 10-15 hours
Power - 2 AAA (LR03) batteries
Dimensions (without antennas) - 120 x 70 x16 mm
Weight - 217 g
Protect 1207i can detect the following kinds of bugging devices:
Compared to the Protect 1207i the 1206i detector comes with capabilities to detect signals at lower frequencies, as well as newly designed antennas for better performance. It has a wider coverage at detecting as well as pinpointing Wi-Fi signals.
Protect 1206i has 2 working modes:
1) Antenna 1 with an uninterrupted coverage of 50-6000 MHz.
2) Antenna 2 with coverage of a span of 2400 – 2480 MHz for Bluetooth/Wi-Fi only.
Protect 1207i Detector of digital transmissions with 6 simultaneous channels, and covers 5 separate, highly sensitive spans:
1) 824 – 849 MHz (CDMA, LTE800)
2) 880 – 920 MHz (GSM900)
3) 1710 – 1790 MHz (GSM1800)
4) 1920 – 2000 MHz (3G/DECT/GSM1900)
5) 2400 – 2480 MHz (Bluetooth/Wi-Fi)
6) It also covers 1 wideband microwave range 3000 – 7000 MHz for Wi-Fi 5.8GHz, WiMax and 4G/LTE detection
The difference is in that the 1207i has the different bar graphs where you will be able to see the source of the signal; Bug, GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc., and 1205 will let you know that something is detected but not what exactly it is.
Both devices have the same sensitivity and will detect the bug etc.
What is the difference between the iProtect 1216 and Protect 1207i?
The difference between those two is that the iProtect 1216 has a wider frequency range (3-12 GHz), for discovering different types of RF eavesdropping devices, including analog and digital devices. The Protect 1207i has a more precise frequency range for most used products in covert surveillance like GSM bugs, 3G, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi devices (800 to 7000 MHz).
