This award-winning* TSCM receiver can also be configured to look like a common thermostat on any wall for more covert enforcement and features an ultra-crisp OLED display, remote control and utilizes Power (PoE) over Ethernet or from the included AC power supply.

Audible alerts are relayed over the internal speaker, headphone output or create a custom alert to be triggered via the dry contact port. WatchHound’s simple thumbstick/push button control allows any security personnel to easily set threshold levels, check past cell phone activity and detect all voice, text and cellular data triggers in realtime.

  • Detect all cell phone (U.S. & International bands) perimeter activity
  • Multiple WatchHounds can be networked together
  • Audible alert with flashing OLED display
  • Fully configurable from WatchHound interface
  • Power (PoE) over ethernet or included AC power supply
  • Dry contact ports to trigger custom external alerts

*Standby mode (autonomous registration) varies from base station to base station with phones typically registering between once every few minutes to up to 20 minutes. This time varies greatly based upon carriers, distance from base stations and individual handset manufacturers’ standards.

*WatchHound ships to that region as the default but may be switched to other supported regions at anytime by the user using the included utility software.

Can the WatchHound be used to locate cell phones?

No, because the WatchHound unit is deployed on a fixed wall, which precludes the possibility to “triangulate” the source of RF signals. By contrast, a hand-held cell detector can locate cellphones by taking two or more bearings (or, Lines of Position) of the source.

Can many WatchHound units be used to monitor a large area simultaneously?

Yes, this is possible by deploying the WatchHound Application Software package which allows the user to monitor multiple WatchHound units from a PC screen.

Can the WatchHound run out of power?

No, because the WatchHound does not use batteries, it derives its power either over a PoE Ethernet port or is powered by an AC adaptor. In addition, WatchHound can also include an external (hidden behind unit) optional 8000mAh battery pack.

Can the WatchHound store data?

No because it does not have to, since it is networked over Ethernet.

What kind of antenna is used by the WatchHound?

The WatchHound can be deployed either by an Omnidirectional or Directional antenna. When deployed at large inner open spaces the Omnidirectional antenna would be used. When deployed in corridors or otherwise constricted spaces a Directional antenna could be more efficient.

Does the WatchHound provide audible or visual alerts?

Yes, it will provide a voice alert as well as a visual alert on its LCD display.

Does the Watchhound Cell Phone Monitor identify callers or their phone numbers?

No. Watchhound Cell Phone Monitor is a simple, low-cost scanning device that simply identifies and timestamps nearby cellphone activity from a fixed point. It is a wireless tool used by security officers and personnel that require a NO WIRELESS security policy.

Can WatchHound track phone numbers or IMEI codes?

No, WatchHound only detects RF signals.

How far away can I detect cellphones?

Typical range is about 100 feet but this varies depending upon the environment.

Does Watchhound Cell Phone Detector detect phones that are powered off?

No but Manta Ray and SentryHound both detect phones ON or OFF even with the battery removed.
