I have a new upstairs neighbor that just moved in and they don't seem to know how to walk properly and instead of on know how to stomp around and dropping heavy objects randomly. All previous neighbors never heard a sound.
If it was only during the day, I probably would be more ok with it but when it is happening at 12:30am, 3am, 5am, 6am and it wakes me up with almost giving me a heart attack.
I made already complaints to strata about it and so have other neighbors but I don't have faith that multiple people complaining will be enough evidence for strata to do something. Especially now the owner is calming we are the ones who are harassing their tenants.
I want to get some noise recording or some decibel readings but now sure what tool or tools I need to buy.
I tried to record the sound with my webcam, cellphone and tried decibel meter phone app but either they don't pick it up or it missing alot of the depth so anyone listening to it would not even realize it is stomping and items dropping.
I also do live on a busy street so that does make it a bit harder to record things as the cars and buses get picked up so I would need to a way to try to isolate that stuff out if possible.
I see this on amazon but still not sure if it will be able to do the job: https://www.amazon.ca/Decibel-Mengshen- ... NrPXRydWU=
I also don't want to spend a fortune on tools
