The Song Meter Mini Bat offers a Bluetooth-enabled, compact and lightweight solution for your recordings, without compromising on quality and autonomy. This device has a recording quality that is comparable to the industry standard Song Meter SM4 BAT, as it is supplied with the latest generation built-in low noise microphone, reducing ambiguity around recorded vocalisations. An optional noise scrubber automatically deletes false triggers that do not contain bat vocalisations ensuring that your data is clean of anomalies.
In addition to excellent recording capability the Song Meter Mini Bat provides you with an opportunity to make audible recordings of birds, frogs and other animals when you are not recording bats.
The Song Meter Mini Bat features advanced triggering which means it only records when bats are present, preserving your battery and SD Card space. It can record up to 30 ten-hour nights with 4 AA batteries or continuously for up to 1,100 hours and for up to 125 ten-hour nights with the optional Lithium Lids. The option of power source allows you to configure your device for either short-term or long-term deployments, depending on your needs.
This technology-rich device saves you time with status and settings being easily accessed wirelessly through an app on your device, via Bluetooth, from 9 to 18m away.
