Magnetic GSM Audio Bug; with LIVE listening and Remote SMS
Professionally hand-built in the UK, the newly upgraded GSM Spark is a remote audio listening device which supports 3G and 4G network coverage. Simply call the device from any smartphone to clearly listen into the surrounding room or vehicle environment from anywhere in the world. The Neodymium magnetic base provides quick deployment to metal surfaces and the class leading battery management guarantees to be the only standalone GSM listening device on the market with a powerful 25 days standby time and 15 hours call time.
CLASS LEADING BATTERY MANAGEMENT
The GSM Spark has been designed and manufactered from the ground upwards to provide the most efficient battery management that uses just 03 mAh of power during standby (standby = switched ON but not calling into the device) and just 120 mAh during call time. Under bench test conditions, the fully rechargeable 1'800 mAh battery provided 25 days standby time and 15 hours call time (per charge).
3x MICROPHONE AMPLIFICATION WITH NOISE FILTER
Fitted with the one of the finest microphones available using 3x amplification to pick up conversations and sounds over greater distances (25 - 30 feet). The in-built filter helps fade background noise from TV and radio harmonics to enhance the foreground audio including spoken words.
A thin magnetic neodymium strip is applied to the base of the GSM Spark for fast deployment to metal surfaces. The magnetic strip is isolated from the internal electronic components that would otherwise cause interference with similar inferior products.
3G AND 4G NETWORK COVERAGE
GSM technology is very stable but networks can be limited in performance depending on the area especially the older 2G signals. The GSM Spark is built especially for the 3G and 4G networks and fitted with a high gain internal antenna provides wider GSM coverage and a much better performance which comes into its own league when the device may be travelling around inside a vehicle. The Spark is the only 4G GSM surveillance device on the market.
BATTERY LEVEL STATUS
Once deployed, access may be minimal, and at some point you may wish to know the current battery level which is especially useful to know when to retrieve the device and recharge again. By sending a coded SMS from your smartphone to the GSM Spark you will receive back the current battery status.
MICROPHONE SENSITIVITY ADJUSTMENT
Depending on the working environment the GSM Spark's microphone can be remotely adjusted to higher or lower sensitivity via coded SMS. This is especially useful if the device is deployed within a small room or vehicle where the loudest microphone level may not be required.
OPTIONAL EXTERNAL MICROPHONE
This is a thin anti-glare flexible cable with a 4 mm diameter Knowles Microphone fitted at the tip of the cable. Ideally, external microphones are used when the body of the GSM Spark needs to remain 'out of sight' and only the tip of the microphone peeks through material or under floors, through ceilings, cavities etc. The standard length we supply is 125 cm which is adequate for most uses however, we can provide any length upon request (subject to fair additional cost). An external microphone isnt really required for normal use and is best suited to field operatives as part of their extensive surveillance kit.
CUSTOM DESIGNED MODELS
Each model uses a rugged ABS enclosure which is heated and then hand rolled in sand and baked at temperate which provides a luxurious textured finish. The end result is a beautiful looking product. However, we appreciate that whilst the GSM Spark is an exceptional product, your requirement may be slightly different ie: alternative design, a bigger battery capacity etc. We welcome custom builds, please contact us and we will try to accommodate your needs.
RECORD THE AUDIO
If you wish to record the audio that you can hear from the GSM Spark then please consider the iPhone / Smartphone Mobile Call Recorder. This product connects with any smartphone via Bluetooth and records both sides of the call, storing the conversation to the device's internal memory.
To use the Smartphone Call Recorder, simply enable its Bluetooth and then enable Bluetooth on your smartphone to sync both devices together. Now, when you call the GSM Spark the call can be recorded. Likewise, if you make a call or receive a call to any other mobile the call can be recorded.
The iPhone / Smartphone Recorder can be optionally purchased from the menu above.
The GSM Spark is a brilliant little surveillance product and has multiple uses around the home and office either as a security product to actively monitor audio or for gathering much needed audio evidence.
Note: A USB mains plug (not supplied) will be required to recharge the GSM Spark 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 with this product because the GSM Spark can be charged through a computer although charging times will take longer.
WHAT DOES THE IMPROVED 3G / 4G NETWORK OFFER?
Unlike most GSM devices which utilise 2G network SIM cards, the GSM Spark is designed to support both 3G and 4G network SIM cards for operational use worldwide. Due to the wider GSM coverage, the signal strength is much more stable and reliable so the device can operate under varied conditions.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO USE AN EXTERNAL MICROPHONE?
This is a thin and flexible 125 cm anti-glare cable with a 4 mm diameter Knowles Microphone at the tip of the cable and is used when the body of the GSM device needs to remain out of sight so only the tiny tip of the microphone peeks out through material or a cavity etc. The cable length can be made longer upon request.
HOW DO I CHARGE THE GSM SPARK?
The device can be charged by mains power using a USB mains plug (not supplied) or through a computer USB port. The in-built battery charging indicator confirms when the unit is charging and when fully charged.
WHAT IS THE STANDBY AND CALLING TIME?
The power management is super low using just 0.3 mAh of battery when the GSM Spark is in standby (standby = switched ON but not listening), and just 120 mAh battery when listening. Under tested conditions this equates to a standby time of approx 25 days and a calling time of approx 15 hours per charge.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REMOTELY CHECK THE BATTERY LEVEL?
Yes. You can send a coded SMS to the GSM Spark to recevie the device's current battery status. This is especially helpful so that you can retrieve the device and recharge.
WHY IS THE GSM SPARK MAGNETIC?
The magnetic aspect provides a more varied useage including metal surfaces therefore, can be deployed 'out of sight' if required.
HOW EASY TO LISTEN INTO MY OWN PERSONAL ROOM SPACE?
No technical skill is required to use this product - the GSM Spark is supplied ready to work out of the box. Simply by calling the associated SIM card number from your smartphone opens the highly sensitive microphone of the device so that you can clearly hear the surrounding environment.
CAN I ADJUST THE MICROPHONE LOUDNESS?
Yes. You can send a coded SMS to the GSM Spark to lower or higher the microphone sensitivity. This is especially helpful depending on the size of the room or environment the device is deployed within. For example; a small room may not require the highest microphone sensitivity.
HOW FAR AWAY CAN I MONITOR SOUND?
You can be anywhere in the world. There are no range restrictions providing your smartphone has a good GSM signal is a good GSM signal.
ARE THERE ANY BAD INTERFERENCE LIKE BUZZING NOISES WHEN I LISTEN IN?
No. The microphone is one of the best in the industry with 3x amplification allowing you to listen to conversations or sounds at a greater distance. The in-built noise buffer also helps smooth away background interference to improve audio clarity.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO RECORD AUDIO I HEAR?
