Evolving start/stop time



I want to record 1 minute/10 minute during 2 hours at sunrise and sunset (1 hour before and 1 hour after). The time is evolving every day during the season. Is there a way to upload the sun almanac for my location in the system and use it to program my recording time? If not would it be possible to work with developers to make it happen?



Hi Louis, It's definitely possible to calculate the time of sunset and sunrise on the device and adjust the start and stop times accordingly, and we can definitely help develop custom firmware for your application. If you email me (alex.rogers@cs.ox.ac.uk) we can discuss how to go about that. Alex

Great, thank you very much. I don't have the devices with me yet. Once I receive them I will connect with you to figure this out. Louis

  • Hi, I have purchased an AudioMoth to detect the ultrasonic sound emitted by bats. And I would like to know how can I detect i) count number of bats ii) bats' flying direction.   I am doing a project to contextualize bat data through different actuators of Arduino. Using LEDs, speakers, motors, etc to visualize bat data. For example, if frequency = 45kHz, LED will light up; if more bats, the motor will spin faster, etc. How can I do that? And can I transfer the data live, and wireless, using a raspberry pi and upload it to the cloud? Again, how can I achieve that?   Finally, is there any guide to manipulating the bat ultrasonic wav. file to human audible sound or visualize through spectrogram? Any tutorial for that? I am trying to use Adobe Audition.   Many Thanks!
  • Hi, I just wanted to check that the AudioMoth should stay with the switch in the USB/OFF position when using the configuration app? Even when you press "Configure AudioMoth" in the app? Then when ready to turn on in the field, change the switch to CUSTOM? Thanks.
  • Hello, I used to record birds (video+sound) as a hobby in my garden using a raspberry pi computer (+ a camera and a microphone attached to the Pi) and a motion detection software. I stumbled upon the audiomoth, ordered one and I wish to record birds for now. What set up should I use? Any advises welcome... Thank you.
