GSM 4 Gang Extension Lead
Most offices and homes use a Socket Lead to power small electrical appliances. This amazing product will also provide remote audio listening from a mobile or landline as a security function. Plug the Socket Lead into a functional mains wall socket and call the associated SIM card number fitted inside the Socket Lead to clearly hear the surrounding audio. The Socket Lead has unlimited standby and operation time and supports all 4G networks to futureproof your purchase. An optional sound detection feature will notify your mobile phone when a sound is detected so you can call in and listen at that point of interest.
Mains Powered GSM Socket Lead; with 4G LIVE Audio Listening and Sound Detection
The GSM Socket Lead will power small office and home electrical appliances in a normal manner; however, fitted inside is a highly sensitive and professional audio microphone and 4G SIM card, so you may, at any time, call the number from a mobile or landline to listen into the surrounding room environment. There are no distance limitations, you may call the GSM Socket Lead from anywhere worldwide, and the microphone will pick up conversations and sound from approx. 20-25 feet around the Socket Lead.
The audio sound is boosted further with superior clarity if you insert a pair of Apple AirPods. You will hear a big difference between listening on your smartphone and listening through a pair of Apple AirPods. Conversations are easily picked up at distances exceeding 25 feet, depending on the room ambience. Other brand earphones may be equally as good.
The Listening Extention Gang Lead can be visually examined because it is a normal-looking Socket Lead externally. No batteries or recharging are required, thus providing very long-term mains-powered audio surveillance.
NETWORK 4G COMPATIBILE
Please be aware of poor-quality imitations. In principle, they work, but low prices encourage shoddy artistry and a limited lifespan. All our GSM products are professionally built to last without humming, mains interference or static crackles associated with inferior types. We only endorse the best audio quality by engineers that know what they are doing and use real 4G modem technology.
SOUND DETECTION FEATURE
This optional feature can be enabled/disabled by sending a coded SMS from a smartphone to the Socket Lead. When enabled, the microphone will actively monitor the room level and call your mobile phone when the microphone detects sound above an average -50 Db threshold. This feature is a clever way to know when someone has entered your room or activity is occurring when you are absent without constantly calling in to check.
Note: A 4G SIM card is pre-fitted; however, if purchasing the optional Sound Detection feature, you must top up the associated SIM card with credit (or any SIM card you use) for this feature to function. No top-up credit is supplied.
AUDIO RECORDING AS EVIDENCE
If you wish to record the audio you hear through the GSM Socket Lead, consider the iPhone / Smartphone Mobile Call Recorder. This clever device uses Bluetooth to sync with any Bluetooth 3.0 compatible modern smartphone so that the conversation you hear through the Socket's microphone can be recorded onto the Call Recorder device.
The Call Recorder's primary function is designed to record both sides of a mobile phone call and works equally well for the GSM Socket. The Call Recorder also works as a standalone digital voice recorder should you wish to use it as a further evidence-gathering tool.
The iPhone / Smartphone Recorder can be optionally purchased from the menu above.
The GSM Listening Socket Lead is a well-made product that provides additional security to your office | home | workshop | holiday, or caravan home when absent.
CAN I USE THE SOCKET LEAD TO POWER OTHER SMALL ELECTRICAL ITEMS?
Yes. The Socket Lead is functional and operates as a standard working appliance to power small electrical items like smartphones or table lamps. It is not recommended to plug large appliances into the GSM Socket Lead, such as a fridge or TV.
CAN I LISTEN TO THE SURROUNDING AREA OF MY OFFICE?
Yes. Plug the Socket Lead into a functioning mains power, then call the supplied SIM card number. The microphone inside the Socket will enable you to hear the surrounding audio. The listening quality is static and interference-free, so you can record the call as evidence if needed.
The audio sound has amazing clarity if you insert a pair of Apple AirPods. You will hear a big difference between listening on your smartphone and listening with a pair of Apple AirPods. Other brand earphones may be equally as good.
WHAT ABOUT BACKGROUND FUZZ OR INTERFERENCE WHEN LISTENING?
Only if you purchase an inferior product, our GSM Socket Lead is a professionally hand-made unit that supports all 4G networks to futureproof your purchase.
CAN THE SOCKET CALL MY PHONE WHEN SOUND IS DETECTED?
Sound Detection is an optional feature and can be enabled/disabled by sending coded SMS messages from a smartphone. When the Sound Detection feature is enabled, the Socket Lead will actively monitor the room levels for sound above -50 Db (average room threshold) and notify you accordingly.
Note: The associated SIM card will require top-up credit to notify a smartphone when a sound is detected. No top-up credit is supplied.
WHEN I AM TRAVELLING OVERSEAS, CAN I MONITOR MY ROOM PREMISES?
Yes. Providing your smartphone has a good GSM signal to call the GSM Socket Lead. The Socket will also accept incoming calls from a VOIP system, for example, Skype, so overseas calling charges are almost negligible.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE SOCKET LEAD IS DISCONNECTED FROM POWER?
Although the Socket Lead does not rely on batteries or recharging, it does require a connection to a main power to operate.
WHAT IS THE REALISTIC DISTANCE I CAN HEAR FROM THE GSM SOCKET?
The audio microphone can pick up clear sound approximately 20-25 feet away, and the listening clarity depends on the room conditions.
HOW LONG CAN I MONITOR THE AUDIO FOR?
The Socket Lead is always operational and ready to receive your incoming call. Calling the GSM Socket from any smartphone, landline, or a type of VOIP is the same process as calling a friend's number. Remember, your call to the Adapter is chargeable, like the cost of a standard call, unless you use VOIP or have free calling minutes.
I NEED TO RECORD THE AUDIO FOR EVIDENCE; IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Yes. We offer an optional iPhone / Smartphone Call Recorder product that syncs with any Bluetooth 3.0 compatible modern smartphone so that the conversation you hear through the Socket Lead's microphone can be recorded onto the Call Recorder device. The Call Recorder's primary function is designed to record both sides of a mobile phone call and works equally well for the GSM Socket Lead.
