Hand-held security scanners, also known as metal detectors or security wands, are portable electronic devices used to detect metallic objects on a person’s body. They are a common sight at security checkpoints in various locations such as airports, courthouses, correctional facilities, schools, concert venues, and sport stadiums. The purpose of these devices is to enhance security and prevent individuals from carrying concealed weapons or prohibited metallic items into secure areas.

Here are some of the primary uses of hand-held security scanners:

Weapon Detection:

One of the main uses is to detect weapons such as guns, knives, or any other metal-containing weapons that might be hidden under clothing or in bags.

Secondary Screening:

Hand-held scanners are often used as a secondary screening tool after a person has triggered an alarm on a walk-through metal detector. They help pinpoint the exact location of the metal object on the person’s body.

Sensitivity and Specificity:

Hand-held security scanners can be adjusted for sensitivity to detect even small metal objects, which makes them more specific in identifying the nature of the threat.


Since they are portable, they can be used in situations where it’s not practical to install a full-sized walk-through metal detector.

Crowd Management:

Hand-held scanners can be quicker than a full-body pat-down, which makes them useful for managing large crowds and ensuring the flow of people through security checkpoints remains efficient.

Non-Invasive Search:

Using a hand-held scanner is less invasive than a physical pat-down, which can be important for maintaining a person’s privacy and dignity, as well as for cultural and legal considerations.

Drug Paraphernalia Detection:

Apart from weapons, these scanners can also detect other metallic contraband, including drug paraphernalia.

How they work:

The scanner creates a magnetic field and when it comes close to a metallic object, the magnetic field is disturbed, and the scanner detects this disturbance, usually emitting an audio signal or vibrating to alert the security officer.

Hand-held security scanners are a widely accepted and effective tool for enhancing security and are integral to a layered approach to security screening. They are valued for their ease of use, portability, and effectiveness in detecting metal objects without physical contact.
