The Noise Nuisance Recorder is very quick and easy to set up, leading you through the process of calibration and starting the measurement in order to avoid disappointment after a few unmanned days of missed measurements.
The meter runs either as a standard sound level meter (useful for any other noise measurements you need to make) or in "Noise Nuisance Recorder" mode.
Arrive On Site
Take the Noise Recorder to the premises in question. The equipment is carried in a bag that is very similar to a laptop computer case. As you only leave the locked Peli case and take the bag with you, it is not apparent to neighbours that you have left anything behind.
Set the equipment up in a location that will give the most representative recordings of the background noise and the problem noise. A power outlet is needed throughout the measurement period, although it will run for at least 10 hours on the internal battery if the power is lost for some reason.
Back in the Office
After a suitable monitoring period, usually around one week, the sound level measurements and associated recordings can be downloaded to a computer for analysis and audio playback.
