Paranormal Investigation Equipment
I have listed a few pieces of equipment we use when on a Paranormal hunt.
Night Vision Equipment
No night vision equipment can function in total darkness. It amplifies dim light and makes everything brighter and clearer. When you look through one of these scopes everything is bright green but clear and distinguishable.
Infra Red Lights/Flash lights
As mentioned above, these emit an infra-red beam of light that is invisible to the naked eye but lights up the background for any night vision ghost hunting equipment you may be using.
A camera (or two) is a must. Most people now use digital cameras. These are particularly good at capturing orbs.
Sound Recording Equipment
We carry small digital voice recorder. The idea behind this is that the ghost hunter can ask questions of any entities that are present in the room to initiate an EVP response. (EVP = Electronic Voice Phenomenon)
These responses are usually undetected by the human ear but appear on these recordings when played back.
Do ghosts only come out at night ?
To communicate between investigators
These come in pairs. We position them so that they shine an invisible infra-red beam across a room or doorway. When this beam is broken then an alarm is activated.
An EMF meter is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic fields. A high EMF reading can impact on the senses and cause all kinds of things such as spooky feelings and even hallucinations - so it is great for "debunking" supposed spooky areas. On the other hand when a spirit is near it can cause a spike in an EMF meter reading.
Infrared Thermometer (Lazer Thermometer)
This is a handy piece of equipment. It projects a lazer beam and can measure the temperature of a room simply by pointing it in different areas. Great for detecting cold spots which are created when spirits are trying to materialise.
Thermal Imaging Equipment
These are good for seeing anomalous cold or hot spots invisible to the naked eye.
Talcum Powder/ Flour etc
Good for sprinkling around an area to detect any footprints or marks (ghostly or real)
It really is no use fumbling around in the dark without the stand-by of a good torch. Added to this it is dangerous. You can trip over, or fall down all sorts of hazards. An essential piece of ghost hunting equipment.
We ALWAYS CARRY SPARES. paranormal entities (or ghosts to me and you) can actually drain the power from your batteries.
A watch to log when things happen.
First Aid Kit
Yes, we will be investigating in semi or total darkness. Best to be safe.
An Open Mind
The most important thing of all we take with us on an investigation.
These are used to trigger a response from a paranormal entity, these can range from a wooden cross to a Kids toy
This is just some of our equipment used.The bigger the location the more equipment used.
