Part of our wider listening devices range, this spy air freshener audio recording device is the perfect long-term surveillance solution for almost any situation and home or office room environment, mainly due to its extremely inconspicuous design. The voice-activated recorder is manufactured in the UK by our expert Spy Equipment UK engineering team.
Innocent Looking Everyday Air Freshener Voice-Activated Recorder
At Spy Equipment UK, we are consistently getting requests for newer, even more disguised audio recording products. We are always trying to think of new ways to incorporate these intelligent devices into ordinary, everyday objects which blend into the surroundings and would unlikely raise suspicion.
The success of our Air Freshener Camera / DVR and Air Freshener WiFi Camera has highlighted that a voice-activated recorder built into the same freshener case would have a broad appeal. The device’s covert design means it will easily blend into a whole host of surroundings, whether it is a room at home, the office or even in a workshop. What’s more, the device is compact and lightweight, making it easy to deploy, and the recorder unobvious should anyone pick the device up.
For a while now, this voice-activated recorder has been one of our top hidden audio recorders, because of its many benefits, outlined below.
Easy To Use and Deploy
Audio recording products have a distinct advantage over spy cameras in that they do not need to be in direct view of the subject being recorded. Air fresheners can be found in every home, office and workshop, for example situated on a windowsill behind a curtain or even on a shelf high up out of arm’s reach. As a result, they are often left for days and even weeks or months without attracting any unwanted attention whatsoever.
Quick Set Up & Simple Playback
The Air Freshener Voice Activated Recorder is extremely easy to use and no real technical knowledge is required to operate it. All you need to do is charge the battery, press the ‘on’ switch, click the back onto the freshener front panel and deploy where required.
Whenever the device’s microphone picks up a sound, a recording will start. This will then stop and save the file when no noise has been detected for at least a minute. It is worth noting that the operating system is unable to distinguish between a human voice, sound from a TV and other background noises, so it will record all of them.
When you want to listen back to recordings, simply click on the freshener facia, turn the switch off, connect to a computer using the provided USB charging cable and playback the recorded files.
Time & Date Referencing
This updated unit now has a time and date reference for each recorded file, which is important to identify when something actually occurred. This makes the device useful for gathering evidence which can be later used in court.
When the air freshener voice recorder is set to record, there is no visible indication that recording is taking place. For example, no beeping or other sounds will occur, even when the device is low on battery.
Amazing Battery Life – Now Longer Recording Capability
When put into record mode, this powerful recording device draws power from a high capacity, built-in lithium ion battery, which can provide an incredible standby time of 12 months and an amazing straight record time of more than 344 hours.
Additionally, the voice-activated recorder exceeds the audio recording device storage memory of 288 hours. This means that if the device battery is fully charged, then it will never run out of battery power before the memory has been filled. To put this into perspective, if the recorder was in a room where there was noise for 8 hours during a day, then the memory capacity would only become full after 26 days, yet there would still be plenty of life in the battery.
Adjustable Sensitivity and Quality Settings
This voice-activated recorder has a very sensitive microphone that can pick up normal-level speech up to a radius of 10 metres (30ft) away. ‘Voice activated’ recording as standard ensures that efficient use is made of the battery and of the memory space – only recorded when there is sound in the environment where the Air Freshener Recorder has been placed.
Through a newly added feature, it is now possible to alter the sensitivity to suit the deployment environment of the unit and there is also an option to increase the quality of the recorded file, albeit the increase in quality will mean a reduction in memory storage capacity from 288 hours to 144 hours.
Potential Circumstances for Use
Because of its discreet design, the situations that would suit using this recording device are endless. Here are some of its common uses we have seen amongst previous customers:
- Monitoring children or more vulnerable, elderly relatives, to ensure they are safe when being cared for by others
- For personal protection, such as to gather evidence of abuse against a perpetrator or to catch a cheating partner
- Employers may need to monitor employees suspected of illegal or inappropriate activity whilst they are at work

Is the device silent and discreet in operation?
Yes, the device is digital and there are no moving parts or sound alerts that would alert attention in any way.
Does the air freshener still make the room smell nice?
Although the material at the front of the air freshener is impregnated with a nice scent, the unit does not odourise the environment in the normal way that a freshener unit would.
Are there any lights that would indicate that the device is recording?
When the device is switched into record mode a discreet LED illuminates for a couple of seconds, but then goes out and then there is no indication that recording is taking place. This LED can only be seen when the air freshener back has been removed to expose internal recorder workings.
Do the recordings have a time and date stamp?
Yes, this new unit now has the ability to reference each recorded file with a time and date so you will know when something has occurred.
Will the recorder still record if it is hidden away from view?
Yes, the recorder will still pick up sounds from the environment, although if it is heavily buried out of site, the microphone effectiveness may be reduced.

No, the Air Freshener Recorder is always set to voice activated recording. There is no straight record option.
