If you’re looking for a covert or overt recording mechanism, mini voice recorders are the way to go. Mini voice recorders often have a good range, clear crisp digital recording, and many other features. In this article will explore some of the potential uses for mini voice recorders and some of the features of the mini voice recorders that Security Camera King has to offer.
However, before going any further it’s important to read the warning that follows concerning audio recording that is performed without the consent of all individuals participating and their knowledge that they are being recorded.
WARNING: There are state laws concerning the recording of conversations without all those participating in the conversation being aware of the recording. Check with your own state laws to make sure you are complying with state, federal, and/or local laws if you are covertly recording conversations. Oddly enough, there doesn’t seem to be too many restrictions on video capture, but there are plenty that deal with audio recording.
For many states where a security camera with audio is used, a simple notice or sign posted in the area of the camera is sufficient enough. (For example, “These premises are protected by digital video cameras with audio. Both video and audio is being recorded.) Other states may have more elaborate requirements to be compliant.
Mini voice recorders, especially today’s mini digital voice recorders have so many features and options that they are really quite versatile in use.
