    Anabat Scout Active Bat Detector
    Contact on this product


    The Anabat Scout is an affordable, full spectrum bat detector designed specifically for active bat monitoring.

    Titley Scientific have developed a bat detector tailored to your active survey needs. The Anabat Scout is an easy-to-use unit that can play heterodyne, auto-heterodyne and frequency division audio through earphones or the built-in speaker. But it's not limited to live listening, you can record full spectrum and zero crossing files to an SD card, with every file geo-tagged. You can even record voice notes to the SD Card.

    The Scout's features don't end with acoustics, it also has an in/out bat counter which time stamps and geotags every count. It is robust and ergonomically designed, and comes with a protective carry pouch with belt loop and lanyard. For those on the go, use the Scout in transect mode with the built-in GPS so you can save your track. When you get back to the office, you can analyse and view your files on a map with your track using the free Anabat Insight software.

    Titley Scientific knows you like to work in the dark, the small black OLED display isn't distracting, only giving you the crucial information, and can be operated in bright or dim modes. The glow-in-the-dark buttons means that you can find and operate your detector even on the darkest night without your headtorch!

    Feels very intuitive
    It is lightweight and comfortable to hold and the menu is easy to navigate and feels very intuitive, further aided by brief explanatory text to explain the options.
    A feature I found particularly satisfying is the auto tune heterodyne mode which means that the detector automatically tunes in to the peak frequency of any bat calls picked up by the detector. Whichever mode you are in the peak frequency is automatically displayed on the screen, enabling you to instantly identify species such as pipistrelles that can be readily identified by the sound and the peak frequency of their calls.
    Another nice feature is the two “Bat Counter” buttons (IN and OUT), enabling you to keep a tally of bats entering and exiting a roost during roost counts. Every in and out button press is written to a .csv spreadsheet, along with the date, time and location of each button press.
    An unexpected additional feature (tucked away in the “Other” menu) is the classic and very retro computer game “Snake”, no doubt provided to keep you entertained during downtime such as waiting for rain to clear. Just try not to get too addicted and use up valuable battery life! Review by P Briggs / (Posted on 9/24/2020)
    Lightweight and handy
    Lightweight and handy, the Anabat Scout is an integrated detector which is both configurable for "active" use to monitor roosts using the count buttons (out & in); or more autonomous for "passive" use over several hours or an entire night. For the active, the heterodyne sound is clear and the peak frequency display is useful. SD card recordings can be listened to later on x10 time expansion using the computer. The GPS coordinates associated with each recording and the possibility of recording a voice note are a real bonus. Review by G Marchais / (Posted on 7/20/2020)
    Great machine, easy to use, recommend Titley Scientific staff for their professional advice and asssistance.
    The Anabat Scout Active Bat Detector was easy to set up and use. It was really interesting to get immediate feedback from the instrument as you walked about. Great way to demonstrate to a group. Titley Scientific were fantastic to deal with, answered questions about the product and were able to accommodate our request, even through the COVID 19 pandemic!
