A noise nuisance recorder for homeowners and tenants with neighbour noise issues.
Hire Kit Includes
We offer this rental and reporting service for the householder who is having problems with neighbour noise and needs to gather evidence to show the authorities that the problem is genuine. As most home owners are not experts at noise measurement, we supply the homeowner unit already configured, calibrated and ready to go. All you have to do is connect the microphone and plug in the power. After that, whenever you hear the nuisance noise you press the Record button on the outside of the box.
When we get the equipment back at the end of the hire period we download the measurements and produce reports (view sample reports), which we send back to you on a memory stick. The reports can be viewed using your web browser, so no special software is needed.
We send the equipment to your home address in a carrying case, usually by TNT Express next day service. At the end of the hire period you just re-pack the equipment in the same box and we send TNT to collect it from you. There is no extra charge for this, it is included in the price shown above.
If it is not convenient for you to be at home for the collection at the end of hire then we can usually arrange for it to be collected from somewhere else, like your place of work.
The measurement reports will be posted to you by Royal Mail within two working days of NoiseMeters receiving the equipment back.
Although primarily intended for recording neighbour noise, the Noise Nuisance Recorder is useful for other noise sources, especially those of a sporadic nature. However, as this is the Homeowner version, it does not come with software for carrying out your own detailed analysis.
For other applications please have a look at the Professional Noise Nuisance Recorder.
The Homeowner version of the Noise Nuisance Recorder is designed for use by people with little or no experience of using this type of equipment. We supply it configured and ready to go. You just need to plug the microphone in and apply power. The meter will start up and be ready to record audio within two minutes.
The sound level meter monitors the sound level continuously, gathering a statistical description of the background sound levels. When you hear the problem noise you press a button on the outside of the case to instruct the meter to record the audio for one minute.
At the end of the hire period you put it all back in the box and we arrange for it to be collected.
Once back at our offices we download all the noise measurement results and recordings from the meter, generate reports and put it all on a memory stick. We then post the memory stick to you. The reports can be viewed directly from the memory stick in your usual web browser. No special software is needed and nothing is installed on your computer.
