Yes, Zircon stud sensors can be used on ceilings. Thank you.
Hello. Scanning through tile can be problematic depending on the type of tile and the construction techniques used in the particular bathroom. If the construction behind the tile contains certain types of insulation, has dense backing or irregular thickness, normal stud scanning or deep scanning may not be effective or reliable. Zircon® recommends you use a scanning tool with metal scan capabilities like the HD800. Using the HD800 in metal scan mode you can scan and map the nails that hold the backing for the tile to the studs. Check out Zircon’s website for detailed instructions on lath and plaster stud finding technique. This technique is the same for finding studs behind tile. Thank you
Good question, so I took my stud finder into the bathroom to try it. I have the Zircon HD70 and have used it for several years around the house. I found that over the tile it wouldn't find a single stud, but it did find where the studs were doubled up, like the outside corner of the wall. I had no luck with it for the single studs. This was a test on sheetrock with tile and not fiber backer board.
Great stud finder. Finds leading edge and middle of th stud. Don’t forget to by a 9 volt battery. Great price too.
It'll get you close, but it isn't perfect. If you stay in the center, you should be alright.

I haven't specifically done that installation but the deep scan feature should work for that.
I had trouble through thick sheetrock texture. I would be highly surprised if it worked through stucco but can't say for sure.
