GSM Audio Listening Black Box Bug
A small, portable Black Box fitted with professional GSM audio listening. You can call the associated SIM card number from a smartphone anywhere globally to hear the surrounding environment - ideal for general home or office security or for gathering recorded audio evidence when combined with the iPhone Smartphone Call Recorder. The Black Box supports 4G networks to futureproof your purchase, and an optional sound detection feature will notify your smartphone when noise or conversations are detected - ideal for being kept in the loop when you are absent. The Black Box is powered by an internal rechargeable battery that provides approx. 7 days of standby time per charge.
This intelligent little Black Box product is fitted with a GSM SIM card with a sensitive audio microphone that will allow you to dial the associated SIM number from a smartphone (or landline) to clearly listen into the room environment. There are no distance limitations; you may call the Black Box from anywhere globally, and the microphone will pick up conversations and sound from approx. 20-25 feet around the Black Box, without interference like humming, cracking or sound distortion.
The audio sound is boosted further with superior clarity if you insert a pair of Apple AirPods. You will hear a noticeable difference when listening through a pair of Apple AirPods or other similar brands of earphones. Conversations are easily picked up at distances exceeding 25 feet, depending on the room ambience.
SUPPORTS 4G NETWORKS
The GSM Black Box is built to support 4G technology to futureproof your product for years ahead. Please be aware of poor-quality imitations. In principle, they work, but low prices encourage shoddy workmanship and a poor lifespan. All our GSM products are a cut above the mustard and professionally built to last without humming, sound distortion or crackles associated with inferior types. We only endorse the best audio quality by engineers who know what they are doing and use real 4G modem technology.
SOUND-ACTIVATED SECURITY FEATURE
This optional feature can be enabled/disabled by sending a coded SMS from a smartphone to the Black Box. Once enabled, the microphone will monitor the room level and call your smartphone when it detects sound above a standard -50 Db threshold. The microphone monitors audio levels in a heightened state and calls your smartphone whenever noise | sound | conversations are detected. This feature is a savvy way to know when someone has entered your room or activity is taking place when you are absent.
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.
BATTERY-POWERED PORTABLE DEPLOYMENT
The GSM Black Box has a standby time of approx. 7 days per charge - that's pretty decent, given the device's small footprint. Standby time = the time the device is switched ON and ready to receive your call (but you are not actively listening). When calling the GSM Black Box, this is classed as 'talk time' and will reduce the overall standby time. We recommend utilising the Black Box's battery management or opting for a mains-powered GSM product for an infinite operational time.
To recharge the GSM Black Box, connect the supplied USB cable to the device and the other end to the USB mains plug. The option to purchase a genuine Apple USB plug is available from the menu above.
RECORD THE AUDIO AS EVIDENCE
If you wish to record the audio you hear through the GSM Black Box, consider the iPhone / Smartphone Mobile Call Recorder. This clever device uses Bluetooth to sync with any Bluetooth 3.0 compatible modern smartphone so that a conversation you hear through the Black Box'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 Black Box. 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 Black Box is a high-quality product that provides peace of mind and security to your office | home | workshop | holiday home, or static caravan when you are absent.
HOW SMALL IS THE BLACK BOX?
The GSM Black Box measures just 45 (H) x 30 (W) x 15 (D) mm - and is small enough to be placed within a room or vehicle environment to remotely monitor LIVE audio for gathering evidence or general security of your valuables and property when you are absent.
HOW IS THE DEVICE POWERED?
The Black Box is fitted with an internal fully rechargeable battery that provides up to 7 days of standby time. Standby time = the device is powered ON and ready to receive your incoming call from a smartphone.
Remember that each time you call the device, this is classed as 'talk time' and will reduce the overall standby time. If the sound detection feature is enabled, the standby time is reduced further because battery consumption is higher due to the microphone constantly monitoring the room threshold level for changes above 50 dB.
HOW DO I LISTEN TO MY ROOM ENVIRONMENT?
After fully charging the device, switch the power ON and deploy it on a shelf, behind a bookshelf, etc. The device can remain out of sight, but the tiny microphone must be allowed to breathe openly in the room environment. You may call the associated SIM card fitted inside the GSM Black Box at any time, and your call will automatically connect for LIVE audio listening through the device microphone.
HOW FAR AWAY CAN I HEAR THE ACTIVITY?
The location that you call the GSM Black Box can be anywhere worldwide, provided your smartphone has a good GSM signal. You can even use a reliable VOIP number to call the device. When actively listening to the room environment on your smartphone, the GSM Black Box microphone can pick up audio approx. 25 feet away from where it is situated.
The audio sound is boosted with much higher clarity if you insert a pair of Apple AirPods. You will notice a 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.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE 4G?
4G and upwards are the new standard in GSM technology, supporting many more countries to futureproof the product for years ahead.
ARE THERE INTERFERENCES LIKE FUZZING NOISES WHEN LISTENING?
No. Unlike other inferior products, our GSM Black Box is professionally hand-built by engineers who understand their work - ensuring a solid, reliable, safety-tested product with excellent audio quality.
WHAT IS THE SOUND DETECTION FEATURE?
This optional feature can be enabled or disabled by sending a coded SMS command from a smartphone. When enabled, the GSM Black Box's microphone will actively monitor the room environment for sounds above a typical 50 dB level and 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 when you are not there.
Please note enabling the sound detection feature will consume approx. 50% more battery performance due to the microphone constantly monitoring audio levels. This will reduce the 7-day standby time to approx. 3.5 days.
CAN I RECORD THE AUDIO I HEAR?
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 Black Box'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 Black Box.
