The Protect 1206i detects bugs and transmitters undetected by most RF scanners.

Unlike typical searching devices, the Protect 1206i can detect modern hidden bugs which use such protocols as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Such bugs, especially Bluetooth types, are practically undetectable by common RF detectors due to their very low transmitted power and a special type of modulation. The Protect 1206i uses a separate channel with a high, (2.44/5 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, digital transmitters, GSM-bugs, etc.) using its distinctive features:

  • Active correlation: probing sound with demodulation bar graph
  • Recognition of type of digital transmission: GSM, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, DECT
  • 4 working modes: silent, sound, vibration and mixed
  • Wide dynamic range thanks to the 16-segment bar graph

New, improved iProtect 1206i now includes: 

  • Wide-Band Antenna

    Wider coverage, particularly at lower frequencies, has made it possible to increase the detection distance of a conventional VHF/UHF bug by 2-3 times, while saving perfect sensitivity at the higher bands (GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.)

  • Micro-Pointer Microwave Antenna

    For the first time, a microwave log-periodic directed antenna is included in the standard set, providing 2-4 times greater detection distance for sources above 2GHz (Wi-Fi 2.4GHz, Wi-Fi 5GHz, Bluetooth, Wi-Max, LTE High, etc.). The directionality provides easy pinpointing of a wireless source, so you know not only know that there is a Wi-Fi source, but can quickly pinpoint it.

  • Increased Dynamic Range

    The bar graph now rises quickly to weak signals and increases slowly to strong signals, thus giving the opportunity to locate the source

  • New Attenuator

    A new algorithm widens the dynamic range even more, making the location procedure easier. Turn on the attenuator near a strong source when the bar graph lights fully and then it will drop and then increase further, therefore making it possible to locate more precisely.
