A small portable Black Box with GSM listening capability from a smartphone. Ideal for gathering audio evidence or general home | office security when you are absent.

A fully rechargeable battery powers the Black Box up to 7 days standby time (per charge). Microphone clarity range of approx 20 - 25 feet. Included voice-activation feature notifies your smartphone when sound is detected.
This is a smart little GSM audio product that allows you to remotely listen to the room/vehicle environment when you are absent. Ideal for use within the home/office to notify you in the event of an intrusion or people entering an area they should not be in etc. The powerful microphone is one of the best in the industry to monitor audio in real-time up to 25 feet away from where the device is situated. You may be anywhere in the world to call the SIM card fitted inside the GSM Black Box.
We provide both 2G and 3G models depending on your country. For example; the UK uses 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, therefore, no upgrade to the 3G model is required. Customers including the USA, Australia, Japan, Saudi Arabia etc will need the 3G model. Overseas countries should check their associated GSM network supports 3G voice calling.
When enabled by remote SMS command from your smartphone, the Black Box will actively monitor the room environment for audio sounds above 50 dB and then send an SMS notification alerting you to potential occupancy within the area.
Note: A pre-fitted SIM card is supplied; however, the Sound Detection feature will require you to maintain top-up credit of the SIM card to use this feature.
As with all our GSM audio surveillance products, the GSM Audio Listening Black Box is a cut above the mustard, offering exceptional audio clarity without the humming and crackling noises associated with inferior products.
The Black Box has a decent standby time of 7 days (per charge), given the small size of the device, before a recharge is required. Standby time means the amount of time the device is switched ON and active but not receiving a call to listen in. When calling the device this is classed as 'talk time' and will inevitably reduce the overall 7 days of standby time. We recommend careful battery management of the product or perhaps choosing a mains-powered GSM product as the better option.
To recharge the GSM Black Box, simply connect the supplied USB cable to the device and the other end to a USB mains plug. If you do not have a USB mains plug to hand, the option to purchase a genuine Apple USB plug is available from the menu above.
In some cases, you may wish to record audio that is heard on your smartphone evidentially. Please consider the iPhone / Smartphone Mobile Call Recorder. The Smartphone Call Recorder pairs with any smartphone via Bluetooth, so the room environment that you are listening to can be recorded onto the Call Recorder device. The Call Recorder can also separately be used to record both sides of a normal conversation on your smartphone too.
The iPhone / Smartphone Recorder can be optionally purchased from the menu above.
HOW SMALL IS THE BLACK BOX?
The box measures just 45 (H) x 30 (W) x 15 (D) mm - and small enough to be placed within a room or vehicle environment to monitor audio for evidential purposes or the general security of your property.
HOW IS THE DEVICE POWERED?
An internal rechargeable battery will provide up to 7 days of standby time. Standby time means the device is switched ON and available for you to call in from a smartphone to listen for up to 7 days. Each time you call the device, is classed as 'talk time' and will reduce the overall battery performance. Likewise, if the voice-activation feature is enabled, more battery power is consumed to send you a notification. In real terms, you can expect less than seven days of operational time because it is likely that you will be calling in to listen and receive notifications when sound is detected over that period.
HOW DO I LISTEN TO MY ROOM ENVIRONMENT?
Switch ON the device and place on a shelf, behind a bookshelf etc. The device can remain out of sight, but the microphone must be allowed to breathe and listen to the environment without restrictions. You may call the associated SIM card fitted inside the Black Box, and your call will automatically open the microphone of the Black Box.
HOW FAR CAN I MONITOR EVENTS?
You can call the Black Box from the other side of the world - there are no distance restrictions providing your smartphone, and the Black Box have strong GSM signals. When listening on your smartphone, the microphone of the Black Box is capable of picking up audio approx 25 feet away from where it is situated.
DO I NEED THE 3G UPGRADE?
The Black Box will comfortably operate using a standard EE or 02 SIM card within the UK, and no upgrade to 3G is required. If you wish to use the Black Box in countries including USA, Australia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, etc., then you will need to select the 3G option. Please check that SIM cards in your country support 3G voice calling.
ARE THERE ANY INTERFERENCES LIKE FUZZING NOISES WHEN LISTENING?
No. Unlike other inferior products, our GSM Black Box provides excellent clear audio.
WHAT IS THE SOUND DETECTION FEATURE?
This is a security feature which can be enabled or disabled by remote SMS command sent from your smartphone. When enabled, the Black Box microphone actively monitors the room environment for sound above 50 dB and then send an SMS notification to your smartphone alerting you that noise has been detected. This feature is ideal for use when you wish to be notified should somebody enter your premises.
Please note the sound detection will consume up to 50% more battery performance due to the microphone constantly monitoring audio levels. This will reduce the seven days standby time to 3.5 days.
CAN I RECORD THE AUDIO TOO?
Optionally, the iPhone / Smartphone Mobile Phone Recorder can be used in conjunction with the GSM Black Box to allow you to record what you hear on your smartphone. The Call Recorder product uses Bluetooth to pair with your smartphone so that the room environment that you are listening can be recorded onto the device. The Call Recorder is an excellent device, designed to record and store both sides of any mobile phone conversation to the Call Recorders memory.
For further details, please navigate to the Smartphone Call Recorder found under Audio Surveillance ---> Call Recording.
