This ready built telephone recording adaptor enables you to record telephone conversations to a standard cassette/digital message recorder with a 3.5mm microphone jack. It connects between the curly handset cord and the base unit of the telephone (RJ10/4P4C style plugs only).
The "PLAY - REC" switch on the side allows recording or playback of recordings to the telephone handset. To facilitate playback, the switch is placed in the play position and the recording lead is inserted into the earpiece socket of the recording/playback device.
The TRE156 is fitted with integral output lead terminated with a 3.5mm mono jack plug. It is NOT recommended for connection to computer sound cards (use TRE157 instead).
It allows you to manually record both sides of any telephone conversation (or automatically if a voice activated dictation machine is used).
NB Unit can be connected to an analogue or broadband phone line BUT will only work with handset or headset cords that are of the RJ10 (4P4C) type, and can be unplugged from the telephone base. If the phone does not have RJ10 connectors and connects directly to a BT wall socket, you should purchase the TRE145 instead.
Supplied assembled and ready to use. Meets RTTE directive EN60950 on safety of call recording equipment.
This product is compatible with all analogue telephone systems including analogue PABX extension sockets but it will NOT work with digital PABX systems, digital phone systems or phone systems outside the UK.
The sale of products that are designed primarily to record the private oral, wire, or electronic conversations of others without their knowledge or permission is not illegal. However, these items (for example, small, easily hidden transmitting devices such as telephone "bugs", "wiretap" devices, "miniature transmitters", and "surveillance microphones") are illegal if they are actually used to record the private oral, wire, or electronic conversations of others without their knowledge or permission.
