Frequently used equipment


Flashlights are used on each and every investigation.  Not only do they provide light to see in dark areas, but they also provide a means of communication.  Spirits can interact by turning the flashlight on to answer questions.


Digital cameras are used continually on investigations to try and capture video evidence of the paranormal.  Large capacity storage cards allow us to take hundreds of shots.   


EMF meters are used to detect changes in electromagnetic fields, which may indicate the presence of a spirit.  The K2 meter on the left has five different lights that change in relation to the strength of the field.  Like the flashlight, the K2 may also be used to communicate by having the spirits turn the lights on to answer questions.  The Mel Meter on the right gives a digital readout of the exact strength of the electromagnetic field.  This model also has a digital thermometer to detect fluxuations in temperature, which also may be a sign of a spirit.


Digital voice recorders are used throughout an investigation to try and capture EVPs or disembodied voices.  Recorders can be very basic models like the Olympus model on the left or a more professional version like the TASCAM model on the right.  We use both kinds on investigations.


The Ghost Touch and REM Pod devices both work in a similar fashion.  Both will produce their own electromagnetic field that, when disturbed, will provide both an audible and visual alert.

Future equipment



Thermal imaging devices allow us to see images in different colors according to the amount of heat they give off.  High resolution thermal imaging devices like the FLIR model on the right can cost well over $1000.  Lower resolution, lower cost devices are currently being developed.  The IR-Blue device shown on the left attaches to an iPhone and costs less than $200.  We hope to be able to add a thermal imager to our arsenal in the near future.


Other equipment we use


A Camcorder also permits us to document video evidence.  This particular model is a Sony HandyCam with nightshot.  This feature will allow recording in complete darkness by using infrared technology.   


Various laser devices are also employed to try and detect the presence of a spirit.  All function basically the same way.  A laser beam is projected onto a fixed surface like a wall or door.  Anything that moves through the area will disrupt the beam.  The device on the left is a laser level used in construction.  It projects a straight laser line for over 100' and can be used down long hallways.  The device in the middle is a laser grid that projects an image much like graph paper.  Although the distance is shorter, it can provide shape and height estimates of an object.  The last device on the right projects a wide area of green dots.  The range of this device is between the other two, but the benefit is the large area that can be covered.


The Trail Cam is yet another device that has been repurposed for paranormal investigations.  Typically used for scouting game, this camera has a fast acting motion sensor, infrared LEDs and a large capacity storage card.  This camera, once activated by the motion sensor, can take both still pictures and video footage of possible spirit activity in complete darkness.


The DVR system allows us to monitor and capture footage from seveal remote infrared cameras.  Recordings are captured to a hard drive in the DVR.  Cameras can be monitored both locally and remotely.  The system is also flexible enough to continually record or to sit ready until motion is detected.  Recordings from all cameras are time synchronized.


The iPad is probably one of the most versatile tools to be used in investigations.  The various sensors in the device allow for many different applications.  Some of these include:  a voice recorder, an EMF meter, a GeoScope (measure vibrations), Ghost Radar, and a digital camera.  The iPad can also be used to remotely monitor the cameras connected to the DVR system.
