Atom Magnetic Voice Activation Recorder
This magnetic digital voice / room recorder can attach to a wide range of metal surfaces and record between 5 - 60 hours from a single charge. Hand rolled in sand and baked to a precise heat temperature, it's unique texture finish is like no other. This professional audio recorder is voice activated, and capable of capturing exceptionally clear audio with a time and date, and is fitted with one of the best microphones available.
Magnetic Sound Detection Recorder; up to 28 Days Standby and 60 Hours Recording
The Atom Voice Activated Recorder is UK hand-built to very high standards and suitable for gathering audio evidence within a room / vehicle with stunning performance. Very easy to use with just a single recording switch and a low power management to provide excellent standby times up to 28 days (Atom II), and recording times between 5 - 60 hours depending on use. 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. It would be a fair assessment that the Atom recorder encompasses performance and reliability to rival any high end audio recording device.
Due to demand, the Atom II is now available (from the drop down menu) and fitted with a higher capacity 1'300 mAh battery to double performance. In real terms this ensures the standby and recording time has the stamina to rival any similar recorder on the market today. Please note that overall battery performance will vary, sometimes more, sometimes less based on factors including how many times audio is triggered and the length of each recording.
VERY SMALL FOOTPRINT
The original Atom Recorder is a fantastic performer measuring just 60 x 35 x 15 mm, whilst the Atom II has a slightly larger footprint measuring slightly larger at 80 x 40 x 15 mm. A thin layer of magnetic strip is fitted to the device and ideal for 'out of sight' deployment where audio must be captured in a more discreet manner.
SUPERIOR VOICE ACTIVATED AUDIO QUALITY
The Atom Recorder is small in size but powerful in performance, the Atom is built from the ground upwards and fitted with one of the finest microphones available. The microphone has been preset to the threshold of -50db and a special harmony buffer helps ween out unwanted background noise for example: TV and radio whilst emphasising on foreground conversations.
Consideration to the number of audio files created is also implemented so the Atom compresses all recorded files into just a single playable audio file. This means instead of storing tens of seperate audio files each time the Atom detects audio, it now produces one (1) complete file containing all detected audio - clever stuff!
TIME AND DATE STAMP RECORDING
Should you wish, each voice activated recording can be time and date stamped for prosperity. Please note the time and date function can only be set using a Windows computer via the smart little software.
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
The Atom Recorder is fitted with jack sockets to accommodate a 2.5 mm and 3.5 mm external probe and pre-cut microphones which are used for special operations for example: threading the microphone through a wall or under doors etc. When connected to the Atom Recorder the external microphone will automatically isolate the internal microphone.
It should be noted that the Atom works fantastic as a standalone recorder for general use without an external microphone.
OPTIONAL PROTECTIVE POD
Being able to deploy extra batteries or equipment underground or amongst shrubbery is what this Protective Pod allows you to do. The oversized weatherproof (not waterproof) pod is capable of concealing modern small DVR units or large capacity batteries for proplonged surveillance operations. Two (2) rubber grommets either end of the ABS plastic pod allows you to make an incision for cables to pass through. In this case, the Atom can be placed inside the pod (with larger external batteries or powerbank) and buried underground. The external microphone threads up and through ground soil for more advanced operations.
CUSTOM DESIGNED ATOM MODELS
Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
The original Atom Recorder is fitted with a fully rechargeable 560 mAh internal battery and capable of between 5 - 60 hours of recording time. The Atom II is fitted with a slightly larger fully rechargeable 1'300 mAh battery which doubles the standby and recording time of the original Atom.
The Atom Magnetic Voice Activated Recorder is a fantastic self contained digital voice recorder and a wise investment for personal or business use.
Please 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.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL ATOM AND ATOM II?
The original Atom is fitted with a 560 mAh fully rechargeable battery whereas the Atom II which is slightly larger is fitted with a 1'300 mAh battery. In real terms, the larger the battery the longer the standby and recording times.
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. External microphones are useful when completely hiding the Atom Recorder out of sight and having the microphone peek out through a crack in the ceiling, wall or perhalps when the Atom is buried underground. For an underground burial we also offer a Protective Pod which houses and protects the Atom but has enough room inside to connect an external Powerbank for example.
Please note the Atom works excellent on its own and neither an external microphone or protective pod are 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.
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 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 but must be done via the supplied software on a Windows computer. 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.
