i'm a student in environmental sciences and currently planning my master's thesis. The AudioMoth seems perfect for registering the times when crickets and grasshoppers start singing in different habitats. I'm very interested in using the AudioMoth for my project.
Will the AudioMoth device be available this june? And roughly at what price point will it be sold?
Thanks and regards!
Thanks for the update! I might still be able to use the AudioMoth later this season, so i will stay around and follow the further development updates. Keep up the good work.
Hi Felix, Thanks for reaching out to us. As I am sure you know, field work is a very busy process, so sorry for not sending the scheduled email out. Our team is still testing the devices in Belize. The tests have been positive so far; however, they have flagged up some things we want to improve before making AudioMoth purchasable. Because we have a lot of data to process before we can fully understand the scope of the changes, we cant give you exact dates yet and therefore its unlikely that we will meet your June deadline. I hope you understand that we are trying to make the technology as best we can. We are sorry about the delay. We will update you when the AudioMoth is ready to purchase. Andy
"Our team is trialling the new design in Belize over Easter. So we will send out an email to all our subscribers before we leave to keep you updated."
I didn't get an email via the subscription service pre- nor post-easter. Did everything go as planned with the trial in Belize? I can't wait for price and availability details. Summer is coming. :)
Great, we will keep you updated when we have prices and an order ready to go.
Great news, Andy! I don't know the exact amount of devices needed yet. A rough guess would be around 10 AudioMoths. But this depends on theire price and if i can get funding for my project. Also i'm not yet sure how many habitat types can be distinguished along the gradient.
I'm subscribed and will try to make up my mind on the required amount until easter.
Hi Felix, Cool application. AudioMoth is great at this sort of stuff, its WAV file recordings are named with the date and time. We are modifying the new device to use AA batteries to increase lifespan and improve the acoustic performance, we are hoping the new design will be ready pretty soon. Our team is trialling the new design in Belize over Easter. So we will send out an email to all our subscribers before we leave to keep you updated. Our aim is to get a group purchase ready around the Easter period. The price depends on how many people get involved in the group purchase. The method of buying we use works a bit like Kickstarter. The more people we have the cheaper the device gets. How many devices do you require for your research?
