Neighbor Noise

In order to take action on noise from neighbors, it is often necessary to positively identify the noise source. While it is important to measure the sound levels with an accurate sound level meter, those measurements alone are no use unless you can clearly identify the cause of the noise.

The NNR-P-A1 has remote control unit. When the complainant hears the noise in question they press the button and the meter records the audio.

The meter stores the statistical noise parameters continuously, but only records the audio on request.

Kit Details

The Noise Nuisance Recorder consists of a Type 1 Sound Level Meter with detailed data logging and audio recording fitted inside a strong and lockable case. A microphone is connected to the outside of the case and mounted on a small tripod.

The unit runs on an external power supply with battery backup in case of power loss. A Calibrator is included so that meter function can be checked before starting measurement.

Noisy Neighbors

  • Loud music
  • Shouting and verbal abuse
  • Dogs barking
  • Banging on floors, walls and ceilings

Identification of Other Noise Sources

Although primarily intended for recording neighbor noise, the Noise Nuisance Recorder is useful for other noise sources, especially those of a sporadic nature.

In addition to starting audio recording with a button push, the meter can also be set to automatically record when a preset level is exceeded.
