What are the benefits of an audio bug?
This discreet, subtle audio bug will never be noticed by an intruder or someone you wish to perform surveillance on. Thanks to utilising GSM technology, this audio bug can be used to monitor anywhere in the world. You can be across the globe and still dial in and listen.

How do I use the audio bug?
To use this audio bug, you will need two things. A SIM card, to place inside the bug itself, and access to the location that you want to monitor. All you have to do is insert the SIM card inside the bug, ensure it is charged, and place it where you want to listen. Then, when you want to listen in, simply dial the SIM card’s corresponding number and enjoy!

What are some other uses for this audio bug?
You can use this audio bug for remote monitoring, confirming whether someone is home and safe, or even as an additional form of child care, should you have to leave your child home with a babysitter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good Battery runs down fast. Sounds awful. Not worth paying for.

Hi do you have a choice to record or not to record ? and if you have a permanent power supply (5v usb ) can you listen for as long as you want ?

Asked by: fizz
You can only record when you phone the number on the sim inserted inside the device. So essentially you can choose when you listen. and if it has a permanent power supply then yes you can listen as long as you like.
