A Recorder Detector is a small device that is worn on the skin or placed around an object, to listen in on the environment around it. It works by emitting a sound, which then bounces off the object and back into the Device and this can be interpreted by a computer program. For example, if an item was dropped on the floor, a signal from its vibrations would be recorded.
Recorder Detectors are best used to listen in on people when they are in a private area. The main benefit is that you can hear what they are saying, without them being able to hear you. With the development of digital technology, a recorder detector can be used for security at businesses as well as homes. These are also used in vehicles such as at railway stations and airports.
You can choose from a range of types of Recorder Detectors depending on your need. The amount of sensitivity to a particular detector has to record and the type of electronic device you are using to listen in to the environment.
The most common type of recorder detector is a surface mount unit, which is attached to the object you wish to listen in on, by screwing a small sensor into the surface. It is then clipped onto your clothes, or around your home, so that you can hear what people are saying when they enter a private area.
These surface mount units can be bought with either a hard plastic housing that fits inside a soft pouch, or with an additional mount where a hard plastic or foam enclosure is provided. This is similar to how cell phones and other small electronic devices are fitted, but can provide better overall performance.
If you want a hard plastic housing to fit into a soft pouch, it is available, or you can choose a mount that comes with a hard plastic or foam enclosure. There are a range of features available such as attenuation, range, battery life, pulse count, etc. So there is something suitable for everybody.
You can use this type of detector in place of other types of small electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops and PDAs. Some models can be put in the pocket of a backpack, without interfering with its operation. They can also be used to listen in on your baby while you are travelling or in another room at home.
These devices are ideal for anyone who wants to use a recorder to eavesdrop on a large public area without being noticed. When using a recorder detector, a microphone is always required, either in your hands or a headset. This will ensure that you have clear conversations that do not contain any audible sounds, so you will not risk anyone hearing you, whilst using the device.
