The Trusty Torch

Before you buy any specialist equipment, you could easily argue the first bit of kit you should invest in is a torch! It is an absolute necessity. There are two primary reasons that having a quality flashlight is absolutely crucial for your ghost hunts.

Lighting – The first one is simple, you need a quality, versatile, light to be able to guide you and help keep you safe as you’re on your adventures. Seeing where you are going, as well as giving you reassurance, flashlights provide both. If you’ve ever been out in a graveyard or to a house you heard was haunted, I promise you, if you didn’t have a flashlight, you wish you did.

Communicating with spirits – I won’t go too in depth into this here, but for a long time, paranormal investigators and ghost hunters have used flashlights to communicate. There is a specific process to it, and although the practice is contested by some, many people have had incredible experienc

Digital Audio / Voice Recorder

An essential piece of kit in any paranormal investigators armoury is a digital voice recorder. Electronic Voice Phenomena or EVP are voice and sound recordings captured through the use of a digital voice recorders. The recordings are usually short phrases, soft whispers or unexplainable noises. When all other ambient and logical background noises can be discounted what’s left can often be interpreted as messages from the spirit world.

K2 EMF Meter

A K2 meter is a popular, easy-to-use tool to detect spikes in electromagnetic energy. These spikes indicated by the multi-colours lights at the top of the meter may signify activity or communication from spirits from the other side.

Rem Pod

The REM Pod is similar to the K2 Meter insomuch as it is looking for fluctuations in the electromagnetic field, however this piece of equipment goes one step further in that it uses a mini telescopic antenna to radiate its own independent magnetic field around the instrument. This EM field can be easily influenced by materials and objects that conduct electricity. The Rem Pod often has a built-in thermometer for measuring temperature fluctuations too.

Spirit Box / Portal

The Spirit Box is a great compact tool for attempting communication with paranormal entities. It uses radio frequency sweeps to generate white noise which theories suggest give some entities the energy they need to be heard. When this occurs, you will sometimes hear voices or sounds coming through the static in an attempt to communicate.

Night Vision & Full Spectrum Cameras

With the aid of night vision and full spectrum camera equipment you can detect visual anomalies or potential paranormal activity with high quality video. While night vision allows you to record unseen infrared light giving you the ability to record in total darkness, full spectrum is specifically designed for ghost hunting to see far beyond our normal sight into areas of the spectrum where theories suggest ghosts reside.

Kinect SLS Camera

The Kinect SLS Camera has an infrared light projector with a monochrome CMOS sensor that shows everything as dots arranged in 3D formation. These infrared dots allow the camera to show depth and detail. The software “sees” people by recognizing joints and movements. The IR will detect paranormal entities that the program recognizes as a human shape based on the body parts and joints. Video can be recorded directly to the camera.

Laser Pen

A high powered laser emits a grid of green dots useful for detecting shadows or general visual disturbances during an investigation. Set it in front of a running camera to catch potential evidence. You can adjust the size and shape of the stars by turning the adjustable lens. Detach the lens and it will function as a high powered laser pointer.

Thermometers

Thermometers can be a great way to detect temperature changes which may signify a paranormal presence. Taking temperature readings can also be a great way to find sources for ‘cold spots’ to debunk or find logical reasons for claims of activity.

Motion Sensor Alarm

This motion sensor will detect any movement and alert you with a light (for visual alerts and video documentation) and your choice of pleasant voice, chime, music or alarm. Just place it down in any room where claims of movement are detected and be alerted when it happens. This is also helpful in detecting objects moving or if a human enters the property. This device does not require any wires as it runs on batteries with an option to plug it in for unlimited use.

Finally.. Balls! (More Precisely) Cat Balls

With the massive (and often expensive) array of paranormal tools on the market, it’s not always the most expensive tools that work the best. These little flashing plastic balls that cost just a few pounds are designed to entertain cats and dogs, simply place them on the floor and as your pet interacts with them the ball will light up and flash.

Paranormal investigators have realised that the balls aren’t just limited to interaction from pets, but also the spirit world. During ghost hunts, these toys are scattered around the room, as you would any other trigger object, then whilst calling out to spirits we encourage them to touch, roll, move or throw the ball. If there is even the slightest movement the ball will flash.
