PocketHound Mobile Phone Detector


PocketHound Mobile Phone DetectorPocketHound Mobile Phone Detector


PocketHound™ is the industry's most sensitive mobile phone detector for it's size. This passive receiver is no larger or heavier than a deck of cards and specifically tuned to the RF signature of common mobile phones (both U.S. & international bands) including all 2G, 3G and 4G bands (PCS, CDMA / WCDMA (UMTS), GSM, EGSM).

This breadth of band detection allows any security personnel to locate nearby mobile phones in either standby mode* or during active voice, text or data RF transmissions making it the perfect tool for enforcing your NO WIRELESS security policy.

PocketHound prevents unauthorized mobile phone use by detecting nearby (up to 75 feet indoors line-of-sight) mobile phones all from your pocket. PocketHound's auto threshold feature automatically detects mobile phone activity only above the RF noise in your environment. This prevents false triggers and alerts the user to any mobile phone activity with bright LED flashing or vibration for completely covert, in-pocket detection.

PocketHound™ is the perfect device for courtrooms (jurors and court personnel), classrooms (stop cheating students) and boardrooms (prevent corporate espionage) as well as prisons.



  • Small enough to fit into your pocket or the palm of your hand
  • Auto threshold sets detection level above ambient RF noise to avoid false triggering
  • Perfect for cheating students, corporate espionage, courtroom and prisons too
  • Internal, integrated flat antenna
  • Superbright LEDs indicate RSSI with user adjustable brightness
  • Receiver design boasts a dynamic range of -60 dB with user settable sensitivity
  • User selectable up to –50dBm with a resolution of 2dB for detection in a noisy environment (typical of prisons)
  • Selectivity rejection of at least 50 dB at 1 MHz from the uplink frequency bands provides high immunity from false triggering caused by base stations, personal communication devices and other sources of interference
  • User selectable mobile frequency bands allow the same unit to be used around the world; both USA and European mobile uplink bands are supported
  • Internal Li-ION battery runtime of 2 hours
  • Weighs only 6 oz.
