EMF Detectors, KII Meters and Mel Meter We use several different tools in conducting a paranormal investigation.Besides using our five senses, we use Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) Detectors.These detect fluctuations in EMF levels.The theory is that as an entity manifests, noticeable spikes in the EMF level occur.
The KII Meter is nothing more than an EMF Detector using lights to indicate the EMF level.The investigator can use this device for communicating with an entity.The entity is instructed to move closer to the meter, or pass a hand over it which will increase the EMF level causing the lights to go on and off.“Yes” and “No” questions are easily conducted via the KII meter.
The Mel Meter combines several investigating tools into one device. It functions as an EMF meter, ambient temperature guage, Rem pod and shadow detector.
Our REM pod device allows for more EMF engery detection and the team can use it also as a mode of communication with an entity.
Motion Detectors round out HPI's deployment covereage to help capture activity.
Digital Cameras Digital Cameras also are important to investigations.You might catch an entity manifesting, and support that with EMF levels.We do not use the camera to catch “orb” images.In most instances, “orbs” are dust particles or insects.However, the digital camera is very helpful in uncovering anomalies not detectable with the naked eye.
Digital Voice Recorders Sometimes, it is what we didn’t hear that makes for good evidence.During an Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) Session, the investigator asks some questions while running a digital voice recorder in hopes of getting a response that is not usually loud enough for human ears to detect.When the investigator plays back the recorder, there might be a response that was not audible to the investigator at the time of the recording.
HPI also uses the Zoom H4n recorder which allows the team to record sound in 360 degrees and in four channels.
Digital Thermometers Digital Thermometers help detect changes in surface temperatures.Similar to EMF theory, it is thought as an entity manifests, it will draw energy and cause cold fluctuations in the room.
CCTV's Closed Circuit TV’s with IR Cams & DVR round out our paranormal investigating equipment.The infrared (IR) cams allow us to station a cam in a key location and record possible activity while the lights are out.The cams feed into a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) where we can record each of our 4 cams separately and monitor the cams using quad mode on our monitor.
We recently added a 16 Channel DVR System and can run with both the 4 and 16 Channel DVR Systems concurrently if needed.
We use a 47" Visio HD monitor for the 16 Channel setup, and a standard 19" flat screen monitor for the 4 Channel system.
Mini DV Cams We also utilize mini dv cams on night setting along with infrared (IR) Illuminators. This allows the team to get better documentation of areas not covered by the stationary IR cams. It is also easier to document activity as it occurs during the team's investigation, meaning we can record the KII/EMF Detectors activating or show the number on the Infrared Thermometer changing. The mic feature also can help in validating sounds that are audible enough for the team to hear. All in all, it serves as a good documentation tool that provides validation for personal experiences.
Our Full Spectrum camcorder allows us to run video in the full light spectrum, enhanced by using the Full Spectrum Illuminator.
Spirit Box The Spirit Boxis nothing more than an AM/FM radio configured so that the tuner constantly switches frequencies establishing a wall of white noise. The theory is that an entity is then able to speak through the white noise; essentially giving you a real time EVP ability.
3D Laser Grid This device projects a series of lines, horizontal and vertical, on a surface so that if an entity passes between the surface and the 3D laser, it will block out the grid lines. By measuring the projected grid lines, you can develop a scale to determine the size of the entity and the rate of speed in which it moved.
Putting all these investigative tools together, we can collect evidence which will either debunk the reported activity, or support any personal experiences gained through the investigation, and corroborate the purported paranormal activity.
Additionally, we have the standard green dot laser grid.
