Guide to SmartComms Kit's Advanced Settings

Advanced settings allow you to access and control each feature according to your environment and preferences. For example, you'll be able to set how long it takes for your microphone to be automatically muted after you've stopped talking, or the level of background noise reduction you want on your outgoing audio (what others hear).

VoiceDetect

Auto Mic Mute / Unmute by Voice Detection

1. VoiceDetect Feature:
Turn VoiceDetect on / off by clicking on this switch. VoiceDetect requires your default microphone button to be unmuted in order for it to work. When unmuted, it will assume control over your microphone's outgoing audio to automatically unmute when you speak, and mute when you stop.
2. Set your speaking volume required to activate the VoiceDetect feature. When set to 'Soft', VoiceDetect gets triggered easily, even when you're speaking softly. When set to 'Loud', you're required to speak louder in order to activate VoiceDetect's auto unmute.
3. Set the noise level that best describes your current environment noise when using this feature.
4. Select the type of microphone you're using. This allows for better accuracy in voice detection and pickup when you speak.
5. Set the amount of time it takes for your microphone to be automatically muted after you have stopped speaking.
6. Check this box if your voice and background noise level vary. This mode will automatically adjust according to the changes in your voice and background noise as it happens.

NoiseClean-out (Outgoing Noise)

Two-way Noise Cancellation — Your Background Noise to Others

When you're done with your online meeting, turn off the NoiseClean features and continue with normal media playback on your device for the best audio experience.

7. NoiseClean-out Feature:
Turn this on to eliminate unwanted background noise from your environment during outgoing calls (what others will hear from you). When activated, NoiseClean-out reduces static noises generated by your environment, so that others can hear you better without the static disruption.
8. Set the level of noise that you wish to eliminate based on your current environment. For example, if someone is using a hair dryer directly behind you, we recommend setting this to 'High'. If the noise source is from a distance and isn't loud, we recommend setting this to 'Low'.
9. Check this box if your background noise level varies. This mode will automatically adjust itself according to the changes in your background noise level as it happens.

NoiseClean-in (Incoming Noise)

Two-way Noise Cancellation — Background Noise from Others

10. NoiseClean-in Feature:
Turn this on to eliminate unwanted background noise coming from your co-worker's end during incoming calls. When activated, NoiseClean-in cleans up your co-worker's voice and separates it from any background noise by filtering and allowing only their voice through into your headphones.
11. Set the level of noise that you wish to eliminate based on the current background noises that you hear from the call. For example, if the background noise in the call is loud, we recommend setting this to 'High'. Likewise, if the background noise sounds soft and from a distance, we recommend setting this to 'Low'.
12. Check this box if the incoming background noise level varies. This mode will automatically adjust itself according to the incoming background noise level from the call as it happens.

How can SmartComms Kit help?

Automatic Mic Mute and Unmute with VoiceDetect

The VoiceDetect feature controls your microphone’s mute status when turned on. Once activated, the in-built technology then listens in the background and will automatically unmute the microphone once your voice is heard. As quick as VoiceDetect picks up your voice, the feature will also immediately mute your microphone once you stop speaking. Not only does the feature save you time, but it also minimizes the need to fiddle with microphone settings in the middle of a call.

Cancel Background Noises with NoiseClean-out

A two-part feature of SmartComms Kit’s Two-way Noise Cancellation communication feature, NoiseClean-out and NoiseClean-in offer the solution of suppressing not only background noises from your end of the call, but your callers’ as well. By intelligently analyzing the sounds and noises picked up from both callers’ microphones, the NoiseClean features are able to filter the noise frequencies from both ends and remove what’s not needed to ensure clean and clear conversations throughout the call.

Don't just take our word for it. Hear it for yourself!
