A functional and normal looking Socket Lead Extension fitted with a high quality sound activated recording mechanism. Simply plug the Socket Lead into an indoor room environment to automatically record conversations 25+ feet away. An internal SD card stores up to 544 hours of sound activated audio and each recording supports time and date. No recharging or batteries required. This is an excellent audio surveillance product to gather evidence over extended periods.
A fully functional Socket Lead with four (4)x working sockets that also doubles up as a powerful voice activated recording device. Ready to work straight out of the box, the highly sensitive microphone is capable of picking up audio approx 25 feet from where deployed and provides excellent audio clarity when sound is detected. For convenience, no batteries or recharging are required due to the recording mechanism obtaining its power from the mains thus providing unlimited standby time.
A concealed Micro SD card storage system is built into the Socket Lead that can hold an incredible 544 hours (23 days) of voice activated audio (32 GB card max not supplied). The Socket Lead is ideal for gathering verbal evidence in almost all indoor room environments. Excellent build quality and performance assured.
The Socket Lead is pre-fitted with a two (2) GB SD card and ready to operate from the packaging. Simply plug the Socket Lead within the room environment that you wish to capture audio, whether that is an important meeting, interview, or to gather audio evidence for personal and business disputes etc.
Professionally hand built, the workmanship of each Socket Lead and indeed all our voice activated audio recorders is unsurpassed in this industry and you will not be disappointed.
Each audio file that is recorded can be optionally stamped with the current time and date. Enabling this clever function will provide an accurate time line of events that took place for better scrutiny.
When the Socket Lead is plugged into a mains socket the internal chipset is designed to automatically start and stop recording when sound or voices are detected above a normal room environment threshold (normally -50 db). Each audio recording is stored to a Micro SD card in chronological order in .WAV format. Due to the design of the Socket Lead it is not possible to know the secret recording mechanism exists unless the Socket Lead is unscrewed and opened. This procedure must be done to obtain the SD card and play back the recorded audio on a Windows or Mac computer. No special software is required.
Voice activation eliminates the need to trawl through hours and hours of continuous recorded audio. When the SD card is full no further recordings can be made. For example; a 32 GB SD card has enough capacity to store 544 hours, thats 23 days of sound activated recordings or 9999 files - whichever is reached first.
Note: If the Socket Lead is used in a busy room environment for example: where a television or radio is playing in the background the microphone will detect the sound and start / stop recordings creating hundreds of irrelevant files until the SD card is full. For this reason we recommend this product is used in a less busy room environment so not to trigger the recording mechanism frequently.
To play back stored audio recordings simply unscrew the Socket Lead and remove the Micro SD card to play on a Windows or Mac computer. Audio recordings can also be stored to your computer for safe keeping, archived or emailed to other recipients.
The Socket Lead can withstand visual examination and operates as a normal home or office appliance. The internal engineering is first class and a fantastic way to incorporate a subtle voice recorder into a room environment.
Note: The cable length of the Socket Lead is standard one (1) meter. If you require longer than one (1) meter please contact us prior to placing an order.
HOW DOES THE SOCKET LEAD RECORD AUDIO?
The Socket Lead simply plugs into any mains wall socket - no batteries or recharging are required. The moment the Socket Lead is plugged into a wall socket it is ready to record when noise / sounds / conversations are detected.
Audio recording will continue until sound is no longer detected and is then saved as a .WAV file to a removable Micro SD card inside the Socket Lead. The recording cycle will continue in this manner until either the SD is full or the Socket Lead is disconnected from the power supply.
CAN I EXPECT DECENT AUDIO RECORDING QUALITY?
Yes. Audio is captured very clearly within a distance of approx 25 feet. It really is a first class audio recording product and the workmanship is unsurpassed.
CAN I PLUG OTHER ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES INTO THE SOCKET LEAD?
Yes. The Socket Lead is fully functional and can be used as normal to power other electrical items.
WHAT IS THE STANDBY TIME?
Infinite! This is because the Socket Lead does not rely of batteries or recharging and receives its power from a wall socket where it will remain ready to record over a period of days, weeks, or many months.
HOW MANY HOURS OF VOICE ACTIVATED RECORDINGS CAN BE STORED?
An SD card with a storage capacity of 32 GB will hold approx 544 hours - that's 23 days of voice activated audio recordings.
WILL I SEE LIGHTS OR OTHER VISIBLE INDICATORS WHILST RECORDING?
CAN A TIME AND DATE ACCOMPANY EACH AUDIO FILE?
Yes. This is optional and a time and date can be set to stamp each recording using the supplied text file.
HOW DO I ACCESS AND PLAY BACK RECORDED AUDIO?
You need to unscrew the Socket Lead to access the Micro SD card which contains the recorded audio files. The contents of the Micro SD card will play on any Windows / Mac computer or any other compatible media player without the need of any special software.
CAN YOU SUPPLY SIMILAR VOICE ACTIVATED PRODUCTS FOR DIFFERENT COUNTRIES?
Yes. We can custom build appliances for UK, European and USA customers. Please contact us and let's talk.
