This week’s Two-Way Radio Tip will explain what a Two-Way Radio Surveillance Kit is and which industries could benefit from their unique designs.


While many people think Two-Way Radio Surveillance Kits are only used by law enforcement or security related industries, Discount Two-Way Radio has been providing this important accessory to thousands of professionals working outside the security sector. The real benefit of surveillance kits is they allow conversations to be broadcast in confidentiality through a high-quality earpiece and small mic. This keeps all conversations imperceptible from outside listeners. In addition, because the earpieces are designed for high-quality audio, these systems also work well for loud working environments like factories, mining operations, or drilling rigs.


What Is A Two-Way Radio Surveillance Kit?

At the very heart of two-way radio surveillance kits is the ability to transmit and receive discreetly by connecting an earpiece and microphone to your two-way radio. One example of a superior surveillance kit includes the RCA SK21NWE-X03S , one of the most durable kits on the market, and is perfect for heavy-duty uses like warehouse communications, and night-club security details. Like the RCA model, all two-way radio surveillance systems need three important components to successfully accomplish quiet two-way conversation. These include:

  • The Earpiece
  • Push-to-talk mic
  • Cabling and Plugs

The earpiece can come in many different shapes and sizes, but it is always connected to the radio in order to clearly hear transmitted conversations even when surrounded by noisy environments like factory machines, drilling equipment, or screaming students.

Another incredibly important part of any two-way surveillance kit is the push-to-talk (PTT) mic. RCA surveillance kits have three options for this send-and-receive technology:

  • One Wire Surveillance Kit: This kit uses a single combined microphone and PTT button that clips to our collar and an earpiece that extends from the PTT button.
  • Two Wire Surveillance Kit: This kit includes a combined mic and PTT button that is clipped to your lapel or wrist cuff.
  • Three Wire Surveillance Kit: This kit uses one wire for the earpiece and a second wire for a microphone, and a third wire for a PTT button that attaches to your cuff.


All RCA surveillance kits use heavy-duty cables and coiled tubes for enhanced durability, comfortability, and reliability. In addition, all RCA professional grade surveillance kits are heavy-duty enough to be IP56 rated, able to withstand water from heavy seas or jet propelled water.
