Stud Finder

Vayyar Imaging has launched Walabot DIY 2, the next generation of its award-winning visual stud finder that for the first time is now available for iPhone and Android devices. The Wi-Fi–enabled wall scanner pairs with smartphones, effectively giving X-ray vision to tradespeople who want a window into their walls.


Walabot DIY 2 pairs with a smartphone to provide an intuitive visual interface on the phone screen, helping users find the dead center of every stud. The device also ensures that users avoid cutting through a hidden pipe or wiring.


Walabot DIY is the only wall scanner that visually distinguishes between metal and wood studs, and detects and tracks the routes of pipes and wires. It even detects rodent movement.


The device’s wireless design provides “extended reach,” allowing it to operate when separated from the user’s phone, a functionality ideal for scanning hard-to-reach areas and for scenarios involving 2 workers. Walabot DIY 2 also comes with a built-in rechargeable battery, enabling users to scan non-stop for up to 5 hours without draining their phone batteries.


The device is built around advanced 4D radio frequency technology and can see 4" into drywall. It also provides dual modes: Images mode shows a full visual of the pipes, wires and studs inside a wall on the smartphone screen, while Expert mode displays the raw radio frequency data.


The Walabot DIY 2 is priced at $149.95.
