Microphone Activation Sensor To indicate the presence of an active recording system the Storm ATP Microphone Activation Sensor incorporates a highly visible and tactile microphone icon. The device also includes an infrared (IR) proximity sensor that can be used to activate a microphone for Speech Recording or Voice Commanded applications. Self Service Terminals equipped with voice recording, voice recognition or voice command are being increasingly deployed in public. However, this has raised concerns about privacy among members of the public and has prompted government agencies to review privacy regulations. It is important that members of the public in the immediate vicinity of those terminals are made aware that voice capture technology is available at that location and may be active or in use. It may also be required that microphones situated in public spaces are, by default, maintained in a muted (or closed)condition until required for use. The device enumerates as a USB Human Interface The status of any microphone must be immediately obvious Device (no special drivers required). to anyone within recording range. These features are The device automatically calibrates for background essential to maintain personal privacy and meet mandated IR levels on power up.
