Will this product work through vinyl sidding

Using it inside only

Does it work on outside stucco wall?

Answer

I don't know for sure, but I doubt it! At the price point for this level, while it accomplished everything I needed it to do, it's best used on smooth surfaces - nothing as uneven as stucco. Even on a smooth surface, i find that I had to "scan" my wall BOTH horizontally & vertically to get the most accurate result. I just don't see you being able to do that with stucco. While there may be a stud sensor out there that will work on uneven surfaces like stucco, I'm willing to bet that it'll be considerably more expensive. Hope this helps!

I tired the RYOBI Whole Stud Detector Model# ESF5001, and it didn't work. And my home is over ...

Asked by Stephy February 25, 2019

Answer

The RYOBI doesn't work because it still uses old technology. Though it has several LEDs it only uses 2 sensors rather than the 6 sensors in the ProSensor T6 or the 13 sensors in the ProSensor 710+. In regards to your question about plaster/sheet rock, it actually depends of the hand the laid the plaster. If the plaster is extremely thick then it may not work. However, as a general rule it has been successful in this scenario. Because of the inconsistency of the plaster I do recommend that you upgrade to the ProSensor 710+ for a few reasons. - The advantage is that the 710+ has 13 sensors and thus has more data points to interpret the inconsistencies in the wall - which are common in plaster. - The 710+ offers you a wider viewing area. The negative space, or the LEDs that don't light up, tell you as much of the story as what is behind the wall as the LEDs that are lit up. - Our stud finders are designed to find any change in density. That means it will find water pipes, wires, wood and metal studs etc. Because lathe and plaster has a higher percentage of inconsistencies in the wall I always recommend the following. Once the LEDs light up, continue to press and hold the button and then scan the wall up and down. Pipe and wires general branch off so you know it is not a stud. In your case with lathe and plaster thick patches of plaster may change the density reading enough that the LEDs much come on and off as it does its job in finding changes in density. Therefore, I again recommend scanning up and down the wall so you can ensure that you have found a stud. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call me direct line at Franklin Sensors 208-918-2409.

Using the sensor is a breeze. It seems a lot more accurate than the stud sensors I have bought in the past. The multiple sensor lights really help to figure out precise locations of the studs. The only drawback is that the button that works it is hard to tell if it is still pressed down or not, resulting in having to stop the process of finding a stud spot and starting over again. Still, it was worth the money and I would definitely recommend it to others.

So easy to use! No calibration is required, just press and hold the button. 3 LED light up when you find a stud showing the edge and center at the same time. No more guessing! So fast. So easy.

It is hard to hold without the sensitivity being affected by your own finger. It highly inaccurate in display detection of the stud. It displays that the studs are a full 4" wide and if you assume that regardless if you took the center (at 2") that would work, not true. This is a lame tool.

This sensor is very easy to use. Not as quick to find studs on plaster as it is on drywall but with a bit more movement you can easily find the studs. Decently accurate. Much more accurate and easier to use than Zircon stud finders.
