Most people have success scanning through lath and plaster, but we don't guarantee it. The reason we don't guarantee it is because the thickness and the consistency of the plaster can vary greatly depending on the hand that laid it. With 8 sensors identifying the change in density, the T9 is a very accurate unit, even through textured surfaces.
Not likely do to the signal not being able to pass thru the carpet and the padding. It diffuses too much of the signal. Mine worked thru hardwood to find joists though.
Mine was lighting up all over the wall in no particular pattern so I don't think it is suitable for that task.
No. It will not the signal pass thru very dense or very hard reflective surfaces. Mine did work thru hardwood floor to find floor joists though.
The ProSensor T9 will identify any change in density, but it will not identify what the hidden object is. As a way of verifying what the hidden object is, once you get a positive reading, with the button pressed, scan the unit up and down the wall. Studs will run vertically up and down the wall whereas wires and conduit will branch off so if the illuminated LEDs turn off, you will know the hidden object is not a stud.
