[nSLUG] Inexpensive decibel meter for a project?

Good afternoon,

I thought I may had the solution to this, but now it's time for me to ask

I volunteered for a project at work in one of the nursing units, to measure
noise pollution, and maybe even light pollution, over a given night
(exported into say, a CSV/XML spreadsheet), at a patients bedside.  I
figured a Raspberry Pi would be up to the job for that, but apparently not:


The budget is in the $100 range, mostly because we don't want a device
people could just walk off with (which is why a phone app isn't looking
like a good option right now).

Does anyone have any suggestions on what would work, bonus points being
open source?  Much appreciated.

Joel Maxuel
