BURAN 1200 is a 3 in 1 device: GSM Bug, GPS Locator, and HQ Voice Recorder with long battery life of up to 155 h in recording mode and up to 4000 h in sleep mode (6 months).

The BURAN Series, including the Buran 1200, have a black box design and two strong neodymium magnets that are attached to the robust plastic carbon casing of the device. This allows you to attach it in a second to metal surfaces. 

The 3D MEMS microphone is made for use in GSM communication and makes clear - low noise - audio possible. In addition, the Automatic Level Control (ALC) controls the output power to the speaker, prevents loudspeaker overload, and optimizes the dynamic range. 

The recording time is impressive with up to 400 h in GSM standby mode, 150 h in continuous mode, and up to 6 months in sleep mode! This is made possible by an integrated 1200 Mah Li-ion battery, and an 8 GB integrated memory. 

The Voice activation level can be adjusted with the provided PC software. The provided USB cable is essential for the functioning of the device as it acts as a security precaution. You can not retrieve any files from the recorder without the cable in the accessories of the device. It also differs from other similar products, as the device can only be called by the administration number, and not anyone can just call the device and listen in or locate it. 

The Buran 1200 offers GPS and LBS locating via GPS satellites, and by using LBS base stations. It can tell you if the vehicle is moving or in a garage. 
The Alarm functions can let you know if the Buran has detected sound in the room, or if it has been moved. 

This model has an external microphone, however, it can be equipped with an integrated microphone as well.

Buran 1200 Feature Focus:

GPS and LBS locating

The Buran 1200 can be located via GPS satellites and by using LBS base stations. Because it has visibility to GPS satellites you can get the location of the device, even if it is in the car, for example, in a garage, or in a GPS-inaccessible location. You will also get an approximate LBS location through the GSM base stations.   

To make sure that you have the best possible reception of the GPS satellites, you have to turn the bottom of the device - where the GPS antenna is located - up. You can also try and leave that area free from metal parts that can cause lower reception. The Buran 1200 will return an SMS with a link to Google Maps with the exact GPS or approximate LBS location. 
You will also receive the battery status info this way.

Deep Sleep Mode - up to 6 months

This mode allows you to set a predefined recording schedule. When the device is not needed it will shut itself down and preserve battery power. This way it can last up to 6 months, depending on the surveilled area of course.
