Audio Recorders

Phone or Room Audio Recorder for Home Security

Are you not sure who your husband keeps talking to on the phone at night? Do you think a prankster or a thief is calling your home at a late hour and could pose a threat your children? To make sure you know who is calling you at all times, you might want an audio recorder for home protection.

What are Audio and Telephone Recorders?

Have you ever seen movies where the FBI come in and say they have wire-tapped the telephones so they can listen to every phone call that goes in or out of the house? That technology is real, and you can install one in your own home as well.

These devices will allow you to monitor every call that a specific telephone receives. Remember that one recorder will record only the calls of the telephone to which it is attached, not all the phones in the house, unless you have them wired so that one phone can listen to the others.

The Uses of Audio or Phone Recorders

The most obvious reason for a telephone recorder is for home security. There are instances wherein you are not sure who is calling your house, and you might want to make sure you are aware of every person trying to contact your family.

Very often, criminals will call your home just to see if someone is there. Sometimes, stalkers might call, especially if they want to hear a woman's voice. To make sure your wife and daughter are safe, use these audio recorders to get a good recording of the culprit.

And then there are those pesky credit card companies. If you think they are harassing you by calling constantly, then attach a recorder and gather enough evidence so you can file a case and silence them for good.

Security is not just about inbound calls, though. Sometimes, you might want to know who the members of your family are calling. If you think your husband is cheating on you or your daughter is calling her boyfriend secretly in her room, then install an audio recorder to catch them in the act.

The recordings can be used to help identify the person, especially if you already have a good idea who it might be. They can deny all they want, but if you present the audio recording in court, you will have enough evidence to identify them in front of the jury and judge.

Students and office workers can also make good use of audio recorders. There will not always be time to conduct a meeting in person, in a single office, for a school project or job. People will need to conduct a telephone conference instead.

The best audio recorder for students is the type that can record hours upon hours of MP3 or WAV files. A good example is the Mini Telephone Recorder. It can record up to 560 hours of audio on a single 8GB SD card.

This also makes it the ideal digital audio recorder for meetings. Sometimes, employees need to conduct a sudden conference on the phone, and this recorder can ensure you get the whole telephone meeting recorded no matter how long you have been talking.

Not all recorders need to be connected to a telephone. The Digital Voice/Telephone Recorder with MP3 Player Function can record sounds in a room. Just turn on the loud speaker and hit the record button. This is also ideal for meetings, but this time, for those held in a room.

This one is useful for journalists interviewing someone since they can just record everything the person is saying instead of having to write down everything while asking questions. Music players and band members can use it to record their jam sessions, too.

The Important Features of Phone and Room Recorders

The best audio recorders for interviews and meetings are those that have a loudspeaker option. This ensures you can record the sounds in a room without the need for a microphone hooked up to the device. This is also needed for band players hoping to record their performances.

Also make sure you have the option between manual and automatic recording. Automatic recording is a feature that will save you hours of data because it means the device will start recording only when it picks up a human voice on the phone.

Manual recording is exactly what it sounds like: the device will start recording only when you hit the record button yourself. This is useful for those times you want to record only a specific phone call or if you are recording using the loudspeaker for an interview or music performance.

It is further important to have a date and time stamp on all recordings. When you access the WAV or MP3 files on a computer, they should have the exact date and time included in their information so you know exactly when the recording took place. This becomes very important if the recording is used as court evidence or where it requires documentation.

You will want the recording device to have removable data storage as well. Being able to put in an SD card quickly anytime you want is crucial for optimal efficiency, especially if you are sure to record hundreds of hours of audio.

Make sure you get as many audio format options as possible. Some recorders create WAV files, which is perfect for those seeking high-quality audio recording, while others record in MP3, a compressed file that saves space efficiently.

Recording options are equally important. High Quality (HQ) recordings will take up a lot of space, but then you can also avail of SP and LP (short play and long play, respectively), which also determine the overall quality of the recording. The lower the quality, the more grainy background noise you will hear.

Whether you want to record sessions or interviews, check on your spouse and children, or maintain optimal home security, you can’t go wrong with a good audio and telephone recorder. Just make sure it has the aforementioned features so you will not end up buying more than one device to cover the necessities.
