It is the perfect discreet audio recording device for home or office
Although this product looks like any common double mains wall socket, in fact it conceals a very high quality recording system that is very simple to use once installed. The flash drive recording system works independently of the mains socket system and therefore both mains sockets can be used to power devices in the normal manner. Once installed in a wall-mounted flush position, there are no external signs on the face, sides or top lip that the double socket is anything unusual. This is because the charging port and pin-operated switch are located on the bottom lip of the product facing the floor/carpet and therefore not in view under normal circumstances
The recording capacity of this system is in excess of 280 hours and the battery that has been incorporated after a full charge will give up to 8 hours of recording time. Charging of the battery is achieved using the mains charger or USB lead that are supplied. Recordings can be downloaded onto a Laptop when connected using the supplied USB lead. Recordings can then be stored and played back on the Laptop in the normal manner
Can the concealed battery be charged just by the being plugged into a mains power outlet, maybe into itself?
No, the unit is charged through a USB charging lead that connects to the plug through a micro USB port hidden under the fuse cover. The USB lead however can be connected to either a computer or to the mains supply using a USB to mains adapter.
Does the recorder make any sound or indication that it is anything other than a standard Double Wall Socket?
No, the device is completely discrete in operation and looks exactly like any standard unit.
Do the recordings have a time and date stamp?
There is no changeable time and date reference on the recordings.
Can the voice activation facility be turned off?
No, the device is designed as standard to have voice (sound) activation. It always will be set to this mode.
How is the device switched on and off?
There is a small pin-size hole in the bottom edge of the socket, which is only visible if viewing upwards from underneath. By using the supplied pin, the unit can be switched on and off.
If the battery runs out before the device is switched off, will the recorded files still remain stored?
Yes, the memory will save the recordings onto the internal flash memory and these audio files can only be deleted manually when the device is connected to a computer.
How do I retrieve the files from the internal memory?
The files can be retrieved by connecting the charging cable to a PC (maybe a Laptop or Tablet). The memory of the Mains Socket Recorder acts like a flash memory, so files are easy to offload.
