The Yacker Tracker appears to be a traffic signal, but actually signals too much noise. Select the appropriate sound level for any given situation and let the Yacker Tracker be an audio-visual reminder when the noise level gets too high.
Perfect for monitoring noise levels in the classroom, childcare, or home. The Green light stays lit until noise in the room goes above a set level (determined by user), the green light is then replaced with a flashing yellow light as a warning. When the sound level reaches 15 dB above the set level, the red light and siren are activated. It can stand on its own or be mounted to the wall and plugs into any standard 120v electrical outlet.

Yacker Tracker can be used a wide variety of ways, limited only by imagination.
- In cafeterias to curtail lunch time noise
- In individual classrooms as a student self-monitoring noise level device (Nursery schools all the way through high school classrooms)
- In school and public libraries
- Substitute teachers bring them with them to classrooms as a novel way to keep the students paying attention – giving rewards for the amount of time the class can keep the green light lit
- Theater teachers have used it in the back of their auditoriums encouraging students to set off the red light to show strong projection of their voices
- Teachers have used it as a debate facilitator, manually setting off the different colored lights to monitor length of responses
