    Walabot DY20BCGL01 reviews

    DIY Imaging Device for Android Smartphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 104.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual use for an amazing product We've had an unusual use for this when purchasing it. Our builder Zoltan Construction and now Zoltan Homes out or Orlando, FL put squid in our walls as he was upset over us firing him for horrible work. So we found Walabot looking for something to see through walls that might pick up on objects behind walls so we wouldn't need to literally tear out our drywall to be sure no more squid was in the walls. So far we didn't find anymore squid but we have an 8k square foot home and more walls to check. This will also, come in handy for installing shelving and such in our new home as well. Not sure how we would get along with out it now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A tool for those who CAN learn and want to ByDavidon December 24, 2017 A tool for those who CAN learn and want to. I've read a few of the reviews, don't believe the negative ones they are written by the same people that push when the sign clearly reads pull. Read the instructions, watch all the videos, spend more than five minutes before you give up, and use your head for more than a hat rack. Is this tool the greatest ever? No but it is a good tool and I will be using it a lot in the future and I'm sure it will only get better the more I learn how to use it. Like I said don't listen to the negative, those are the same people that can't wait one minute for a three minute egg.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tool in your arsenal I had been looking to buy this but it seemed every Android phone I owned, was not compatible until now. Have a Pixel 2 XL. Contrary to many reviews, it does work and it provides what I was looking for -- a highly effective stud (and other items) finder. Yes -- the calibration does take some time every time you use it. But it does work. My big problem was getting the unit to work initially, but I contacted support and they CALLED me and walked me through the process. Very responsive service - at least for me. What they don't say is that you have to watch the tutorial video once before the unit can be used -- could use a better instruction sheet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Helpful This was a great idea and concept. It has worked extremely well with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5, I bought it for my work and it has located steel studs and tells you that they are steel studs. In the process it has also picked up the water lines, network wires and electrical wires. I agree with a previous review that the mechanism to stick the Walabot to my phone is not the best but you can definitely still make due and use it to the best of it's ability. If it had some other clamping mechanism to hold it to your phone would be better. I would definitely buy one for my personal use as well.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falsely identifies things and also completely misses others When I saw the video promoting the Walabot DIY Imaging Device, I had to have it.� I'm heavily into hi-tech gadgets and I also do a lot of DIY things around the house along with helping friends with their DIY needs.� My stud-finding needs are pretty frequent as I do things that include installing crown moulding, wall paneling, shelves and storage units, mounting TVs, etc.� I've been using my trusty Zircon stud finder all these years in helping me identify where studs are.� I've never had a problem where I accidentally drilled into a pipe or wires (I've been lucky, i guess) but the coolnees of being able to visually differentiate pipe/wires from wooden studs really appealed to me.� The price of the Walabot is not cheap (over 4x the price of my reliable Zircon stud finder) but I was willing to pay for the peace of mind that what I'm finding is truly a wooden stud). I received the Walabot DIY a few hours ago, downloaded and installed the Walabot app (only works on Android -- not available for iOS/iPhone), and followed their video instructions down to a tee (select wall type, calibrate, then scan the wall).�� There are three modes: pan, images, and expert.� As their video instructions recommended, I started with the panning mode to see an overview of objects behind my wall (it will pan an area up to 60" wide).� It does properly identify objects behind the wall the way a stud finder would but it does it across a small heavily pixelated "color chart" that is just useful for helping you visualize where the empty spots are behind the wall vs where the studs and other items are.� Not meant for precisely pinpointing where your studs, pipes, and wires are -- that's what the images and expert modes are for. The images mode is really the mode that was the selling point in their videos promoting this product.� And that mode does not work properly.� That happens to also be the mode I bought this thing for since a stud finder works very well in doing what the expert mode does.� So I'm going to focus on the images mode. My house is a fairly recently built house (2011) and consists of a wooden stud-based frame and drywalls all around the indoor walls.� After setting the wall type to 'drywall' and calibrating the unit against my wall (simple process of holding the unit up against the wall and moving it in a 1' circular diameter motion), I proceeded to the images mode to see what was behind the wall.� I used a wall I was familiar with where I knew there was romex cable, Cat 6 cables, and a coax cable nested between wooden studs (I know there are wooden studs there because I've drilled into that wood to mount my TV and saw the wooden shavings on my drill bit).� The biggest problems I have with this devices is that he images mode on the Walabot DIY image device missed a number of studs that my Zircon stud finder finds (and I confirmed by tapping the wall), and, more importantly, it identified some of the wooden studs as a "pipe/wire".� Granted, it did also identify the group of wires I know are behind the wall as "pipe/wire" but how can I trust that what it's claiming is a "pipe/wire" is not a wooden stud when it's false-positive rate on "pipe/wire" is so high?� Moreover, it gives you a measurement, in inches, of the identified "pipe/wire" and it seems to think my studs are 2.8 inches wide!� My zircon stud finder's distance between the edges of that same stud is only 1.5 inches wide. I would not recommend the Walabot DIY Imaging Device to anybody.� Considering: 1. the exorbitant price of the Walabot DIY imaging device; 2. it's high false positive AND false negative rate; and 3. the clunky nature of having to connect the device to a phone with a wire and a sticky rubber pad between the two versus a single unit stud finder.� Zircon and other companies make stud finders that detects metal and wires and warns you.� You're much better off getting one of those at a fraction of the price of the Walabot device.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, just follow the video tutorials in the app Very easy to use. There are tutorial videos in the app that show you how everything works. In no time i was doing my first project and finding wooden beams behind the drywall and some electrical wires and even some PVC pipes. Installed some tool racks without any issues. I have a couple of regular stud finders and simply hate them. They are never accurate and i always end up making extra holes in the wall. With the walabot every stud it identified was a real stud and I was able to hit the center. I am using a galaxy S7 Edge phone. Works perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the day When I ordered Walabot I was skeptical in view of all the various reviews but decided to try by myself. This tool is simply amazing, I can see inside the walls. It is absolutely not difficult to use, very simple in fact if you simply read the instructions for calibrating. It worked right away from the box on my S8+. I was working on a project and realized there was a leak. It was coming from inside the wall. Thanks to Walabot, I could see where it was coming from. So I could cut at the exact place without doing any further damage. All is fixed thank to Walabot. The contractor who built the house put screws to hold a mirror and went through a pipe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walabot was worth it! I bought the Walabot to help find the studs and wiring in our walls to help us hang our interior barn door tracks. I had already mapped out what I thought were the studs with my old stud finder and then used the walabot to double check everything. The Walabot was 100% accurate and my stud finder was like 60% accurate. I'm so glad the Walabot was so accurate as we were driving in 4 inch lag screws for these tracks. If you follow the directions and calibrate the Walabot everytime you put it on the wall it works awesome! I can't wait to use it to hang the next two barn door tracks!
