Paranormal research is still a new science. The is no such thing as a “ghost detector” and no one yet knows for sure what causes paranormal phenomena. Many theories exists, and most assume that if humans can experience a paranormal sight, sound, chill, or other sensation, then there should be some type of detectable physical/environmental change. The tools in this kit represent some of the most popular items for extending our human senses, allowing users to sense and scientifically quantify changes that cannot be explained under “normal” circumstances. Naturally, these tools will also detect changes that can be explained by “normal” activity such as electrical wiring, wind movement, etc. It is up to you, the paranormal researcher, to use your powers of reasoning to sort out which activity is paranormal because it cannot be explained by ordinary means. For this reason, it is important to work with these tools under “normal” circumstances first… to determine what ordinary causes are likely to be found for changes that can be detected by these tools, and to become familiar with what they can and cannot do. And remember, in paranormal research, there are no guarantees that you will “find a ghost” or have a paranormal experience.
Trifield EMF Meter
An EMF meter will detect/measure AC magnetic fields. AC magnetic fields are normally caused by the flow of AC electricity and will be found in the vicinity of ALL appliances and wiring in which electricity is flowing... so you must get used to finding magnetic fields that occur for “normal” reasons, and distinguish these from magnetic hot spots that are unexplainable. Although magnetic fields have an orientation, this EMF meter is 3-axis, meaning that is “looks” in all directions, so there is no need to worry about the orientation of the meter. The Trifield EMF meter in this kit has two ranges. Magnetic 0-100 mG is the standard range. The meter can also operate on the more sensitive 0-3 mG range and will detect even the smallest background levels. These are the two most popular settings for paranormal work. The meter also has electric field and radiowave capability. It comes with the battery already installed so it is ready to use.
Paranormal researchers theorize that energy is required to generate a paranormal phenomenon and perhaps this energy comes from the temperature of the air or other objects in the vicinity of the occurrence. There is a big difference between “feeling a chill” and finding a spot which has no good reason for actually being colder than its surroundings. The IR thermometer in this kit is super-fast, allowing quick measurements of the temperature of nearby objects.
The thermometer is great for checking the temperature of air. Compare temperature readings in many locations and look for places that have an unusual temperature and be sure to record your findings (be sure to specify ˚F or ˚C). See if these unusual temperature findings correlate with other nearby changes which might be considered paranormal.
Passive Infrared Motion Sensor
Some researchers believe that paranormal forces can move physical objects. The motion sensor in this kit will detect if an object whose temperature is significantly different from the background moves across its field of view, and alert you by sounding an alarm. Be sure to set up the motion sensor so that its field of view is not obstructed and so that you and other people will not accidentally trip the sensor. A motion detector can be your eyes and ears to movement in a completely dark or remote location. In fact, you can uses several units to monitor multiple rooms.
EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) are human-like sounds that are recorded by electronic devices, which may or may not be audible to humans, and for which an ordinary explanation cannot be found. Paranormal researchers have theorized that EVP might be caused by magnetic phenomena, which bypasses our normal hearing mechanism and directly impacts the recording device. The EVP Listener converts AC magnetic fields into the corresponding sound of same frequency and intensity, so that the user can hear magnetic phenomena in real time. The EVP Listener can be used with or without headphones, and the output can be attached to a recording device or spectrum analyzer if desired. You can “hear” ordinary sources of magnetic fields with the EVP Listener. It is important to become familiar with the sound of ordinary AC magnetic field sources such as wiring, fluorescent lights, dimmer switches, motors, etc. These must be ruled out in any paranormal siting. Listen for distinct or faint words, moans, screams or other non-mechanical sounds.
