Recording on alternate days

1 comment

Hi, first of all congratulations to the development team, you've done a tremendous job!

I was wondering whether it would be possible for the devices to record on alternate days (or once every given number of days).

Is there any perspective for such feature to be included in the firmware? If not, would it be possible to customise the C code to do so?

Many thanks!

Hi Xavier,

Right now the firmware does not support this functionality, however I believe it would be relatively simple to customise the C code to do it. The code already keeps track of the current day, so it would be a case of using that to decided whether or not to record.

  • 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.
