The new iProtect 1217 Mobile Anti-Tracking System is the world's only RF detector capable of detecting over 26 mobile and wireless bands on all continents. The iProtect 1217 is a recently released (2022) mobile and wireless signal detector capable of finding all kinds of hidden devices such as cell phones, spy bugs, hidden cameras, hidden voice recorders, GPS trackers, any type secret surveillance device that uses mobile communication and emits signals.
With its unique selective detection design, you can see exactly the signals found to differentiate suspicious signals from a monitoring device or harmless external interference. Conventional broadband detectors cannot do this because they combine all the signals they detect. As the iProtect 1217 is very sensitive it will detect signals up to 10 meters away and as you move it will guide you to the source of the signals so you can physically search for hidden devices.
With the iProtect 1217, you'll always be notified when a high-intensity signal is detected nearby. The ALARM function has 43 levels to set the optimum sensitivity and allows you to set an alarm threshold with audio and visual warnings.
The ability to detect over 26 mobile and wireless bands is one of the best advantages of the iProtect 1217 over other conventional RF detectors on the market - as it covers all existing mobile standards on every continent!
This cell phone finder, to ensure maximum detection accuracy and speed, offers an adjustable frequency allocation for the country in which you will be using the device. As each country has its own frequency allocation for mobile bands and wireless devices, frequencies like 4G/LTE, 5G and others may differ in different parts of the world. At the start of the scan, you can tune the iProtect 1217 only to the bands used in the country of use and get the most accurate detection results.
The iProtect 1217 offers 4 search modes to help you analyze detected signals and uncover any surveillance devices that may be hidden in your home, office or vehicle.
ALL GROUPS mode is the main search mode which detects all mobile and wireless signals and is used to begin scanning. Once all signals are detected, you can use GROUP mode to inspect the bands in a certain group, for example DECT.
To explore a signal even deeper and start a physical search, use the STRIP mode as it displays a graph with the signal level history over a certain period of time. This allows you to notice the signal as you approach or move away from it so you know exactly where to look for the hidden device.
The fourth mode is the TRACKER mode designed to search for GPS trackers on vehicles or other mobile devices. TRACKER mode is adjusted to detect only mobile signals and accumulate a history to find the periodic sending of data with coordinates that GPS trackers use.
The iProtect 1217 comes in a protective carrying case with two antennas included in the set to ensure maximum sensitivity:
The LPDA-12 High Band Directional Antenna helps locate transmitters above 2400 MHz, and
The low band rod antenna covers transmitters below 2400 MHz.
The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 5 hours of operating time, however, the device can also be used while charging.

iProtect 1217 Multi-Channel Wireless Detector:
4 operation modes to meet specific detection needs
The iProtect 1217 offers several search modes to help you quickly identify all detected signals, their origin and location, allowing faster detection of all surveillance devices. The primary search mode for detecting all mobile and wireless signals is ALL BANDS mode. You can use this mode to begin your search. As you progress, you can narrow your search by inspecting the bands belonging to a particular group in GROUP mode, for example, the 4G/LTE group. It is commonly used when the detector finds a high signal level. To explore a specific band, use the BAND mode. Since the signal is measured in a single band and the histogram is displayed on the screen, you can perform a physical search to find the monitoring device. The fourth mode, TRACKER, allows you to search specifically for GPS trackers and mobile devices.
Global coverage and expanded detection capabilities including 5G
With the iProtect 1217 you can see exactly what signal has been detected, allowing you to differentiate between suspicious signals and external interference, allowing you to perform a physical search for a particular transmitter. This cell phone finder is capable of detecting all existing bands of GSM, CDMA, 3G, 4G/LTE and the latest 5G in the range up to 6 GHz, as well as all types of wireless signals including Wi- 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Fi, Bluetooth, DECT, ISM 434 MHz, ISM 968 MHz and ISM 915 MHz.
Highly sensitive and resistant to interference
As a selective detector, the iProtect 1217 detects signals from all mobile bands in a country, providing greater sensitivity because it doesn't let stronger signals mask weaker signals. It allows you to detect mobile and wireless signals at a distance 10 times greater than that of conventional RF detectors, even if their signals are weaker.
Adjustable for country of use for maximum detection accuracy
As each country has its own frequency allocation for mobile communication bands, some frequencies may differ slightly in different parts of the world. To ensure maximum accuracy and rapid detection, as well as to avoid any false responses, the iProtect 1217 allows you to customize it according to your country of use.
Detection of at least 26 mobile and wireless bands
In each country, there are up to 10 to 15 different frequency bands of mobile communication for GSM, 3G, 4G/LTE, 5G and other bands, and the iProtect 1217 offers detection of at least 26 bands, which you can automatically select
Analysis mode for further signal inspection
The scan mode of a certain band allows you to perform a physical search for a transmitter. In BAND mode, a histogram is displayed on the screen which shows the signal level history for a certain period of time, letting you know if you are approaching or moving away from the signal and you can physically search for the hidden device .
TRACKER mode for detecting GPS trackers
In TRACKER mode, you can search for GPS trackers (beacons) in vehicles or other mobile devices as the histogram displayed on the iProtect 1217 shows short term signals and also measures the time between signal responses.
Two antennas for maximum sensitivity
Two antennas are included with the iProtect 1217. The LPDA-12 high band directional antenna helps you locate transmitters operating above 2400 MHz and the low band antenna below 2400 MHz.
High quality carrying case
The device and all accessories are supplied in a high quality carrying case for maximum protection and transportation.
