QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk BCM a Question
With the Elekon BATSCANNER, could one use the headphone jack to go to a recording device? If so, could that output also be stereo?
Yes if stereo Y adapter is used, you can split the signal into two cables for 2 people to listen simultaneously, or send one line to a recording device. -JC

Does the elekon batscanner give me the species of bat I am listening to?
Hello Bruce- this detector gives you the strongest frequency of ultrasound it last monitored in the environment. From that, given context of the species assemblage in your local area combined with the habitat you are in, you can sometimes guesstimate the species. For example ~21-30 kHz in most Gulf states would probably be Mexican free tail bats. ~42 kHz in FL would be the Southeastern myotis; however, ~42 kHz in northern states might be any one of up to 6 different myotis species in one area, and so the best than can be done in those areas is to loosely group them as "40 kHz Myotis". There are currently only two devices that can give a visual representation of the bat calls and attempts to name species; we prefer SonoBatLIVE as it is more professional and accurate. It requires a Windows 10 laptop, tablet, or mini computer to run, and also an ultrasonic microphone. The least expensive microphone compatible is the Pettersson u384 or M500-384. Most microphones from Binary Acoustics works as well, with the least expensive being the MiniMic. As a bonus any of these mics can be used with an Android app called Batrecorder, although files recorded would need post processed using the SonoBat Viewer to obtain species suggestions. The SonoBat North America is a professional package that includes the Viewer, SonoBatLIVE, and the Data Wizard, as well as a number of legacy apps for special purposes.
Hi. I was wondering if this could be used inside of a home. We purchased a large, very old home, and know that occasionally a bat pops inside. We want to be able to safely shoo them along as we continue to renovate, but we don't know they are there until they surprise us - and are surprised by us in return. We have had a few construction staffers quit over the encounters. Looking to keep all creatures safe and happy! Might this work for us?
Bat "detectors" actually don't "detect" bats like a metal detector "detects" metal. These devices convert high-frequency bat calls into sounds we can hear and record. It won't help you find bats in a building but might help clue you in as to where they are flying outside a house. Bats generally will only be calling when they are flying.- JC
