the noise app

The Noise App is a quick and easy way to record noise which is causing an annoyance or nuisance.

How it works

Download the app on your smartphone and start recording the noise that is causing the problem straight away.

Instantly record noise nuisance on your smartphone to create an accurate record of the problem and how it affects you.

Once you’ve recorded your evidence, you can send it directly to emh to investigate for free. You can also keep a personal Noise Diary in the app, which will help you review your recordings.

The recordings are uploaded directly onto a secure site that Karbon officers access and they can make a quick judgement of the noise and what action is necessary. You can make as many recordings as you need and each recording lasts for up to 30 seconds.

Note: You will need a smartphone to use this app and broadband is recommended so it doesn’t use your mobile data allowance.

  • the App Store for iPhone users.
    Search for 'The Noise App' and tap Get or Install to download the app for FREE.
  • or the Play Store for Android users.
    For Android devices search 'The Noise App RHE' and choose Install after selecting the app.
