Recording 24/7

Postby txdadtx » Thu Mar 03, 2011 10:54 am

I want to hide a digital recorder in the house and let it record 24/7 (w/ Voice Activation) in case I ever need to use against false DV. I can't find any models that can also be plugged into an outlet and don't require battery changing or re-charging. I just dont want to have to have to attend to it every few days. Just stash it and forget it.

Ideally, a device like an IP Camera, but just a "IP Microphone" would be great, but there doesn't seem to be such a device. It would simply connect to your WiFi, record audio when there is audio heard and send the MP3 to email or FTP it elsewhere.

Has anyone found a good option for this?

Only use a recorder that is on your body, leaving one in a room recording 24/7 is a very bad idea.

You'll get hammered if you get caught for this.

Bad idea.

Recording anyone without their prior consent is dependent on the state you live in. I'm in Vt and it's ok, other states it's not. Do your research or this can backfire on you.

Best bet is to keep a recorder on you at all times. I got a Sony, battary lasts a very long time even when in use and saves approx 12 hours worth. Problem with this particular model is the buttons are very easily activated when kept in a pocket, missed out on a couple events.

I let my ex know that I have it with me at all times, keeps her in check, which is the real goal.

Leaving a recorder behind in a room and recording 24/7 is illegal in every state and will insure you get hammered in Family Court. Not to mention the potential criminal charges.

My lawyer said something similar. It's legal to record anything that you are a party to/present for, but leaving a recording there 24/7 is illegal.
