Using the Echo Meter Touch 2 plug-in modules, available from, Amazon,  or through distributors worldwide, this app allows you to listen to, record, and automatically identify bats by their ultrasonic echolocation calls. The modules and this companion app reveal the silent and often times invisible world of bats, providing outdoor enthusiasts, citizen scientists, and researchers an affordable and informative way to interact with these important creatures. 

There are two models available: Echo Meter Touch 2 (EMT2) costs $179 and is intended for nature enthusiasts and batting hobbyists and Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro costs $349 and is designed for bat professionals and features a higher quality microphone, adjustable gain, and higher sample rate.

The Echo Meter Touch Ultrasonic Modules sense ultrasonic signals, digitize the signal, and transmit the ultrasonic data to your the app on your Android device. The EMT2 offers exclusive features and unprecedented ease-of-use for a handheld bat detector. 

EMT2 translates bat echolocations into frequencies that are audible to humans using two technologies. Wildlife Acoustics’ patented Real Time Expansion (RTE) allows you to listen to bats in real time with unparalleled fidelity. RTE maintains the timing and tonality of the original echolocations. Heterodyne (HET) listening via manual and automatic tuning is also available, for those accustomed to that way of hearing bats. 

A real-time spectrogram shows the frequencies and timing of the echolocations. Scroll back in time and zoom in on previous "bat passes."  

The Auto ID feature analyzes the echolocation calls and suggests the two most likely bat species matches in real time. This is the same technology used in our professional Kaleidoscope Pro Bat Auto Identification software. Currently, the app can identify 26 species in North America, 25 in Europe and 57 in the neotropics. For more information on Kaleidoscope and a full list of species, visit our website.

Activate triggered recording mode to automatically save bat passes to full spectrum .wav files for analysis on a computer or to view on your Android device. Or use manual record mode to control start and stop of recording. View the recording spectrogram and add voice or text notes. Listen to the recording using RTE, HET, or traditional Time Expansion Playback (playback at fractional speed to make the ultrasound audible).

View in satellite or road map view. View identified species codes directly on the map. Go to the recording's spectrogram from the map view. Transfer to your computer to view in Google Earth. Your Android device must have GPS capability or you must use a Bluetooth GPS receiver for this functionality.
*Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.*

The EMT2 can transfer the .wav recordings to your computer over a Wi-Fi network or cabled through iTunes. Using Wi-Fi, the app bundles the recordings in a .zip folder and allows download by entering a URL in any web browser.

And import and open files that have been shared with you.

***Because bats vary their echolocation calls in response to a wide variety of needs, no automated identification can achieve 100% accuracy in species identification. Auto-ID, though largely accurate, should not be relied on as a basis for scientific research. Auto-ID is intended for use in analyzing recordings of single bats in free flight in low clutter environments. Auto-ID will not work well on recordings of roost emergence, multiple or captive bats, bats in high clutter environments, or bat social calls. Auto-ID does not include every possible bat for each of the covered regions. 

App ChangeLog

  • Big news! EMT 2 and EMT 2 Pro bat detectors with USB-C or Micro USB connectors are now compatible with iPhones and iPads with USB-C ports. If you own an EMT 2 with USB-C or Micro USB, simply upgrade the firmware using the EMT app on an Android device. You can then use the EMT 2 with your iOS device (EMT 2 with Micro USB will need an adapter). Wildlife Acoustics will soon begin shipping EMT 2 bat detectors with USB-C with the new firmware already installed and ready to use on Android or iOS.

    Edited. Sent the Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro back, as it kept crashing on my Samsung Galaxy note 10+, despite it being compatible. Wildlife Acoustics didn't have the time to look into why, as they are, apparently, working on a new update for the app. Purchased a professional bat detector from Elekon

    Great when it works, but the app freezes frequently. It's frustrating that it'll stop dead, and then required closing down and restarting, at least twice on a survey, especially if you need to review recordings.

    Very simple to use good recording functionality. Auto detection seems a little random but good for giving you an idea what's out there

    Brilliant. Would like to be able to plot data by time so that comparisons could be made for different days and patterns may emerge.

    Considering how much you spend on the meter, the app is a let down. Constant crashes.

    Fantastic. Hours of pleasure hunting out our local bat population. Auto id seems to work great. Easy to send files to laptop also.

    I run the Eco Meter Touch 2 Pro On a Nokia 7.2, absolutely loving it no problems so far all seems fine even using the higher sample rate

    Easy to use, probably not used all its features yet. Sound os good- soon learn to recognize them without looking at the screen

    So far very good. Plugged it in and it worked immediately, auto identification is very useful.
