Knock sensor tool to measure detonation

Has anyone used a knock sensor, as a tool to confirm there is no detonation going on after their engine modifications?

Looking at the possible use of ceramic coatings for pistons, combustion chamber, valve surfaces, exhaust port, and headers. To reduce the heat transfer thereby reducing the likelihood of detonation. Iíve done a fair bit of research on the propagation of the ignition kernel and causes of detonation. Unfortunately the early stages of detonation is often inaudible and can still cause extensive damage in a short time. So to be safe I would like to be able to measure it if present.

Thanks, Paul
