Doesn't it look odd the box is connected to a telephone socket?
For convenience, plug the black box telephone recorder into a spare telephone socket in a different room. It does not need to be connected to the main telephone socket. For example: most houses have two (2) or more BT sockets for the same telephone line with the main socket in the living room and another telephone socket located upstairs in a spare room.
Can anybody gain access to the recorded telephone calls?
No. An encrypted layer of security has been implemented by way of a removable key. When the 'key' is removed from the device, access to the stored telephone calls are made impossible. The encrypted key uses a unique algorithm and cannot be copied.
What happens if I lose the key?
We require the serial number of the device. That is the only way to provide a spare key.
