Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
Hello, My name is ***** ***** i would love to help you with this issue.
May I ask, What leads you to believe that this neighbor is using a sonic device?
There are a few methods you could use to verify..you will need a microphone.
You could attempt to put up some sort of electromagnetic / acoustic shielding near the source of the sonic intrusion.
I have seen these devices, they can run on batteries. I would file a complaint with the police and animal control under the pretense that its assault. She is using a K9 training tool on a house pet in a cruel way. If this is true, they will have grounds to investigate.
However I am an electrician, and would love to help you in this matter. Considering these ultra high frequency sounds made my these devices are extremely interesting. They can be harmful to pets, and in rare cases people. I think sometimes a pets discomfort is felt by everyone who cares for it, especially the little ones.
I think your best best for a resolution here is to talk with animal control in conjunction with the authorities about your concerns with the premeditated and aggravated menacing of your pet. I hope this is helpful. If you have any further questions i am here to ask : )
I would also see a doctor to address these concerns, if you are truly feeling ill you should.
You had mentioned running "tests" to determine the sound was having a tangible effect on your family. What did these tests consist of?
Unfortunately, The ultra sonic waves generated by these devices have been tested and deemed safe to humans. There really is no recourse here, even if you proved that your neighbor was doing this you would still have to prove that it is harmful to you.
I would contact animal control, explain the problem. You can buy audio sampling software and use a good microphone to try to detect the sound.
You will want an "acoustic oscilloscope" capable of analyzing up 45 kHz
You are also going to want to seismically isolate the microphone and have nothing running in the house that makes noise. That means you will have to leave while recording if possible. If not you need to be quiet. You then can examine the data and verify the frequency and duration of the sound. You can then repeat this test in different locations to triangulate and find the source of the sound. If if points to the neighbor you may have your proof.
Additionally, I would try to reconcile with your neighbor. Be nice to them, they wont want to do harm if they like you :)
Finally, I hope this information was helpful. I am at the end of our Q+A time I am afraid. Please take a moment to rate me, this is how my company knows that i did my best to help :) If you would like to ask more questions I would be delighted to offer additional service.
Last thought, You can prove that it is harming your pet, these deices are designed to use on pets. If you can find prof of it, then animal control would be your best best for action.
Have a great day ;)
