Electrical detector that is easy to use
Great device for detecting wires and metal embedded in walls prior to drilling. Very easy to use (just one switch) and seemed very accurate (I ran it over places where I knew there were wires). Unlike the detector I previously had, this one doesn’t need adjusting before use.
Seems to work well...good purchase
Handy cable finder
Never used or owned one before and now I don't see how I lived without it. Great tool that us essential to daily tasks
I would advise that this Bosch Truvo Electrical Detector is designed to detect electric cables and metals - it will not tell you whether the cable is live.
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

I had the remains of plug. Sockets still on the back of the house from an old conservatory. Prior to the electrician checking, I did put this on the wall and it alarmed. When the electrician took the plug socket fronts off there were the metal boxes where the wires should go still there.

I advise drilling in green zones only as yellow indicates close to wiring/metal.
Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
