Until recently this type of listening device was only available to law enforcement agencies. Spycatchers range of professional audio transmitting devices offer real time remote listening much like the old UHF RF bugs , by using the latest technology they offer superb quality audio with DSP and encryption. When the device is not required to transmit it is electronically silent drawing less than 1 mA giving it an amazing standby time even when powered from a small rechargeable Lithium battery. The transmitter has a range of around 100 metres and is fully legal and CE approved.
The transmitter is available in 2 versions either the classic black box which lends itself to quickly be hidden in a location you may not have access to or we can build it into one of our many covert housings, alternatively you can purchase the circuit board to fit into your own products.
Live listening and recording on both channels concurrently (separate recorder required )
CD quality 16-bit audio collection
Remote access to audio gain levels (from software)
Dynamic Range >93dB
Frequency response 100Hz – 20kHz
Runs from USB charger and/or 1x AAA lithium rechargeable battery unless it is built into a custom housing when the battery size can be significantly increased
Current consumption approx. 25 – 40mA depending on RF Status
10hrs continuous use with rechargeable lithium battery
Sleep mode < 1mA
Encryption 56/128-bit AES for wireless transmission
Encrypted Frequency hopping
Additional measures embedded in the encrypted payload eliminate the possibility of others ‘listening in’ and the units will not respond to Bluetooth inquiries – true stealth!
Configurable times for bringing radio on line along with radio scan times
Radio can be remotely put into Deep Sleep
Bluetooth (enhanced security)
Operates within the standard 2.4GHz ISM band extremely difficult to detect with current counter measure equipment.
