SentryHound Cell Detection Portal Keeps Cell Phones Out!

CellDetect™ recently introduced the SentryHound Cell Detection Portal to the Southern African corrections and custodial communities. 

The SentryHound is fast becoming the most successful cell phone prevention and detection tool in the South African correctional environment since its introduction late 2014. The SentryHound Cellular Telephone Detection Portal (above) is placed at the entrances and doors of correctional facilities. Wardens, inmates, visitors and other people who need to access the facility have to walk through the SentryHound portal and stand for one second on the pressure sensitive mat. The SentryHound immediately detects any hidden cellular telephones or parts on the individual, whether the phone is on or off. It will also detect the cellular telephone when the battery is removed. 

The SentryHound differs from expensive and obtrusive walk-through metal detectors because it only targets cellular phones found in pockets, backpacks, purses, etc. while ignoring common metallic items like pocket change, belt buckles and keys that trigger normal metal detectors. This makes for streamlined security scans focusing on illegal or unauthorized cell phones being transported through security checkpoints. SentryHound is portable and simple enough to be transported anywhere and assembled and operational in minutes.

CellDetect™ is the only company in Southern Africa that specialises exclusively in providing a complete strategy and solutions to correctional and custodial facilities to counter the threat of cellular telephones and other communication devices in their facilities and areas where they are not allowed and prohibited.One of the pillars of the CellDetect Solution™ is a preventative strategy. CellDetect has a full range of preventative products and equipment to aid and to assist correctional personnel to prevent devices from entering their facilities. If a cellular telephone or other communication device has made its way into the facility then CellDetect™ has to most advanced equipment available to detect and to neutralise the devices. The devices can be neutralised remotely. (It is not even necessary to go and look for the cellular telephones inside the prison areas).
