Therefore, this spell can sense the effect area of the alarm and guard glyph of war-ding, and can also find a pit-type mechanical trap. But it cannot reveal a weak spot on the floor, or an unstable spot on the ceiling, or a hidden gutter.

The spell simply reveals the existence of traps. You cannot use this to locate every trap that exists, but you can know the general form of the hazard posed by the traps sensed.
