Sound Sentry XL Tricks and Tips

You can turn your Sound Sentry XL into anything from a Barking Dog Alarm to a buzzer alarm (use our free sound library here on the site!), leave messages for your family - it can even be a doorbell - just use a doorbell sound and stick it near your door with the included sticker.

Here are some helpful tricks and tips for recording sounds with your Sound Sentry XL!

  1. Make certain when you press the record button your finger/thumb is not covering the microphone area.
  2. For cleanest recording use the entire 7 seconds.
  3. To force a playback delay play your sound and then record silence until the 7 seconds is up, then release the record button. The Sound Sentry will play the sound and your recorded silence becomes a delay before the sound will play again.
  4. Note motion that is very close to the sensor (less than 6 inches) is not easily detected as it obscures the entire sensor area. Effective range is 6 inches to about 11 feet away.
  5. It is recommended you do not record into the Sound Sentry XL like a Walkie-Talkie. Best results occur when you record clearly from at least 6 inches away from the microphone.
