Noise Nuisance Recorder - Noisy Neighbors

Neighbor Noise Recorder


The noise nuisance recorder is designed for monitoring and recording noise from neighbors. It is intended to be installed indoors, usually in the room where the noise is most problematic, and left running for a few days to give a good idea of the background noise levels and so that the complainant can record the actual audio as evidence.

However, as the Noise Nuisance Recorder includes a sound level meter (usually a Type 1 Data Logging, Integrating meter), it can be used for many other noise monitoring applications, as listed below.

Noisy Neighbors

The intended application for the Noise Nuisance Recorder is for monitoring excessive noise from neighbors.

Typical noise sources would include:

  • Music too loud
  • Barking dogs or other animals
  • Shouting and verbal abuse
  • Banging on floors, walls, ceilings

These devices are often used by enforcement officers, the police and housing associations to assess the severity of the problem before taking legal action. They are also used by home owners and tenants who need to prove to the authorities that they have a real noise problem.

Environmental and Community Noise

The Noise Nuisance Recorder with includes a hand held Sound Level Meter. This is a Type 1 or Type 2 data logging, integrating meter that includes the standard environmental noise measurements (L10, L90, Leq, etc.) and the ability to make automatic repeating noise measurements. This makes the meter ideal for most environmental noise surveys. Should you need Octave or 1/3 Octave Band Filters then these can bee added to the meter at the time of purchase or at a later date.

The NoiseTools software that is included connects to the meter and downloads all measurements.

Occupational - Noise at Work Assessments

The occupational noise regulations (OSHA, etc.) state that measurements should be made using at least a calibrated Type 2 Sound Level Meter and that you should have a Calibrator to check the meter's function. The meters that are included in the NNR kits exceed these requirements and includes all the measurements that you need to meet these regulations and guidelines.

The NoiseTools software includes occupational noise measurement reports.
