3 New SM4/SM4BAT Features Available Now

Here at Wildlife Acoustics, we're always listening. Our Song Meter SM4 and SM4BAT represent hardware and software improvements from over a decade of customer feedback.

While we have gotten very positive responses from the field, we still had a few feature requests that we knew we could add to make them even better.

The best part is that they are free and can be added with a simple firmware update! 

"Should I Update My Firmware?"

"Should I Update My Firmware?"

What is firmware?

Firmware is software that is embedded inside of hardware. In this case, the hardware is a bioacoustics recorder.

What does a firmware update do?

Firmware updates often improve the function of the hardware in some way, such as making it compatible with other devices, debugging it, or adding new features.

Why should I update my firmware?

Updating firmware helps users avoid running into bugs that we have already identified and fixed or adds functionality.
