How to record Surroundings
#1. Send an SMS command
Send an SMS from your phone to the monitored device with the command to Record Surroundings.
The default SMS commands are available here: Default SMS commands
If you think that the default commands are difficult to remember then you can customize them: Custom SMS commands
By default, the surroundings will be registered for 10 minutes per SMS command (you can change this value from your Account > Remote settings > Record audio time) and the audio file will be stored on en encrypted database on the monitored phone. It will be uploaded to our server when an internet connection will be available. Furthermore the file will be deleted from the device after the recording will be successfully uploaded to our server.
#2. Restart the Internet (optionally)
If you want to upload the recordings faster then you can send another SMS command (after about 15 minutes) to restart the Internet
#3. Listen to the surroundings records
Log on your account after the audio files were successfully uploaded and access the Surroundings section of our website to check the records.
We recommend using VLC media player for opening the audio files. It can be downloaded and installed for free from the following address VLC media player
