This happens if we use sensor devices which capture the physical sound source. A simple sound sensor is microphone. This sensor can record any source via microphone.

We use a microphone module which is connected to your IoT board, for instance, Arduino and Raspberry Pi. One of them is Electret Microphone Breakout, https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12758.
