Atom Magnetic Voice Activation Recorder
The Atom is a professional magnetic digital audio recorder which can be deployed to a wide range of metal surfaces to record between 5 - 60 hours on a single charge. Hand rolled in sand and baked at heat temperature, it's unique coated texture helps keep grubby fingerprints at bay. The Atom is voice activated and fitted with one of the finest microphones to capture exceptionally clear audio which can be stamped with a time and date on both Windows and Mac computers.
Magnetic Sound Detection Recorder; up to 25 Day Standby and 60 Hour Recording
The Atom Voice Activated Recorder is UK hand-built to very high standards and suitable for gathering audio evidence within a room or vehicle with stunning performance. Very easy to use with just a single recording switch and a low power management to provide an excellent standby time up to 25 days with a recording time between 5 - 60 hours during that period.
The Atom Recorder is rolled in sand and baked at heat temperature to form a slightly rough textured finish which helps keep grubby finger print marks at bay. A thin neodymium magnetic strip is also applied fto the base of the device for fast deployment to metal areas.
IMPROVED ATOM II
The newly upgraded Atom II is fitted with a higher capacity internal 1300 mAh fully rechargeable battery whilst still maintaining a very small footprint of just 80 (L) x 40 (W) x 15 (D) mm. The new Atom II provides double the standby and recording time than the original 560 mAh Atom and is designed for customers who need extra battery performance.
It and would be a fair assessment to say the Atom Recorder has the performance to rival any other high end audio recording device. Please note that overall battery performance will vary, sometimes more, sometimes less, based on factors including how many times voice activation is triggered and the audio length of each recording.
VOICE ACTIVATED AUDIO RECORDING
The Atom Recorder is fitted with one of the finest microphones available. The microphone has been preset to the threshold of -50db and a special harmonic buffer helps ween out unwanted background noise for example: TV and radio whilst emphasising on foreground conversations.
The Atom Recorder compresses the total number of seperate audio files into just a single playable audio file. This means audio recordings are automatically spliced together to produce one (1) final file containing all the recorded audio over the period of deployment - clever stuff!
TIME AND DATE RECORDING
A time and date stamp of when audio recording was triggered can be applied for prosperity. We provide the software for setting the time and date on both Windows and Mac computers. This is ideal for understanding exactly when the first audio file was created - was it midnight, was it in the morning and at what time and when? Now you will know.
WINDOWS AND MAC COMPATIBLE
The Atom Recorder is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. To recharge the device, and / or play back recordings, simply connect the Atom device to your computer via the supplied USB cable to access the recorded folder. Audio recordings can also be archived or emailed to other recipients in the normal manner.
OPTIONAL EXTERNAL MICROPHONE
An external microphone is used when the body of the Atom Recorder needs to be concealed out of sight and the tip of the microphone peeks through material or through a wall cavity, under flooring etc. The external microphone is a thin, flexible anti-glare cable of 125cm length and a 4 mm diameter Knowles microphone fitted to the tip of the cable. The Atom Recorder is fitted with jack sockets to accommodate a 2.5 mm and 3.5 mm external probe and other pre-cut microphones used for special operations.
It should be noted the Atom Recorder works fantastic with its own internal microphone and an external microphone is not required for general use.
CUSTOM DESIGNED ATOM MODELS
Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
The Atom Magnetic Voice Activated Recorder is an amazing self contained digital voice recorder and a wise investment for personal or business use.
Note: A USB mains plug (not supplied) is required to recharge the Atom from a mains power supply or you may optionally purchase a genuine Apple USB mains plug from the menu above. A USB mains plug is not a necessity and the Atom can be charged through a computer too.
HOW DO I CHARGE THE ATOM RECORDER?
The device can be charged by mains power using a USB mains plug (not supplied) or through a computer USB port.
DOES THE ATOM NEED TO BE MAGNETIC?
No. We can custom design the recorder to your specific requirements - please contact us. However, the thin layer of magnetic material we feel provides additional deployment capabilities for example: under a vehicle seat, underneath a desk or table or behind metal surfaces.
WHY WOULD I NEED AN ATOM RECORDER?
There are many reasons why people use voice recorders for example: you may need to find out who enters your room premises when you are not there, or perhaps you may need to gather audio evidence of an ongoing home or office dispute to provide the relevant authorities.
DO YOU SUPPLY AN EXTERNAL MICROPHONE?
Yes. The external microphone is made of a thin, flexible anti-glare cable of 125cm length and 4 mm diameter Knowles microphone tip. We can make any cable length upon request. External microphones are useful for concealment of the Atom's body and only having the microphone peek out through material or a crack in the ceiling, wall etc. Connecting the external microphone will automatically disable the internal microphone and heighten the sensitivity from 50 db to 40 db.
The Atom Recorder works excellent on its own internal microphone and an external microphone is not required for general use.
DOES THE ATOM RECORD CONTINUOUSLY OR UPON VOICE DETECTION?
Voice activated recording only. This means when the microphone detects sound above the preset -50 db, the Atom recorder will silently commence recording and will continue to do so until the audio threshold drops below -50 db. All recorded audio stored from the period when it was deployed is compressed and stored as one (1) single playable audio file to the Atom's internal eight (8) GB of flash memory.
Please note we can modify anything with the device so if you did prefer continuous recording we can do that but voice activated is better for the majority of uses.
CAN YOU ELABORATE FURTHER ON THE STANDBY AND RECORDING TIMES?
A fully charged Atom recorder can actively monitor for audio within the vicinity it is deployed for up to 28 days. 28 days is the maximum amount of time the device can remain in standby before the internal battery requires recharging. If sound is detected on day 22 for example, the recorder will have just enough battery juice remaining to capture that audio. If however, the Atom device is constantly triggered by audio then the maximum 28 days will be reduced.
WHY WOULD THE ATOM RECORD BETWEEN 5 - 60 HOURS. WHY NOT THE FULL 60 HOURS?
Battery performance will vary because of factors including the amount of times the recorder is triggered and the length of each audio recording. To get better battery results please consider the Atom II which has double the battery capacity of the original model.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD A SPECIAL AUDIO RECORDER FOR MY REQUIREMENTS?
Please contact us to get the ball rolling.
WHAT AUDIO FORMAT ARE THE FILES SAVED IN?
Recording files are created and stored in standard .WAV format which is supported by many different audio players.
ARE THERE ANY VISIBLE LED's WHEN RECORDING?
An LED will indicate when the Atom device is being charged, and a short LED will flash when it is about to record. The use of an LED is to show you exactly what is happening whilst being very subtle without bringing unwanted attention. We can disable LED's but we advise against it.
IS A TIME AND DATE STAMP SUPPORTED?
Yes. This function is very easy to set and software is included for both Windows and Mac. If you choose to use this function the time and date is stamped only when the very first audio is triggered.
HOW CAN I PLAY BACK THE AUDIO FILES?
Simply connect the Atom device to your Windows / Mac computer using the supplied USB cable. Once connected, your computer will begin recharging the device and at the same time the computer will assign a drive to the recorder (drive a, b, c etc). Inside the drive will contain a folder labelled 'Recordings' and inside this folder will contain just one (1) audio file compressing all voice activated recordings which can be played through your media player without any special software.
