Ghost Hunting is the study of phenomena in places/buildings and the attempt to record them with modern means and collect data on them. The role of the paranormal researcher is to know the history of the space, to be objective, to respect the space and anything that can reside there. The purpose is to detect and identify something as inexplicable and not to interpret it.Equipment
Sure, most smartphones have built-in, high-quality cameras. However, that there is no real night vision or infrared capability on your phone. That being said, it could be wise to invest in a camera that has infrared capability. That way, you can take photos and shoot videos in dark places without needing a flash or a light. Using an infrared-enabled camera allows you to record in darkness without requiring a light source. Another reason is that if you are using a light source it will be much harder to see some of the illuminated types of phenomenon. For example, you can?t see a flashlight beam in a room with the lights on.
2) EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena)3) EMF (Electromagnetic Field)
Electronic Voice Effects (EVPs) are sounds that are detected in electronic recordings that have either been accidentally recorded, or have been intentionally requested and recorded. Ghost Hunting enthusiasts believe that EVP is a form of paranormal phenomenon that is often encountered in static noise recordings. The paranormal claims about the origin of EVP include the thoughts of people imprinted on an electronic medium through psycho-communication and communication with entities such as spirits, physical energies, beings of other dimensions. In contrast, scientists see EVP as a form of "acoustic joke" (interpretation of random sounds as voices) and as a pseudoscience. are conducted by amateur researchers lacking training and resources to conduct scientific research and who are motivated by subjective perceptions. Researchers describe hearing the words in EVP as learning a new language, and portable digital voice recorders are the equipment chosen by the researchers.
Theoretically, EMF meters detect fields emitted by the movement of electrically charged objects. The theory of the electromagnetic field lies in the combination of an electric field generated by a charged object and the magnetic field created when the charged object moves. In everyday life, EMFs are used to diagnose electrical wiring problems and power lines and to read measurements on working devices. In Ghost Hunting, ghost hunters use counters to search for "peaks" in the signal, with peaks indicating a change in electricity and therefore the existence of an entity. The correlation between EMF meters and ghosts is often done, but there is no evidence linking these two.Secondary equipment1) Kinect
In our research we could optionally use Microsoft's Kinect (physically connected to a laptop) to detect motion. Its upgraded version is more accurate, with three times the fidelity of its predecessor and can be monitored without visible light using an active IR sensor. It has a 60% wider field of view and can start detecting within 1 meter of the sensor compared to the 3 meters the original Kinect has, and is capable of detecting up to 6 skeletal structures at a time.2) Digital thermometer
A digital thermometer will be quite useful in finding and recording the temperature fluctuations that are commonly reported at haunted locations. If you plan to acquire a digital thermometer, make sure it isn't just a surface thermometer. Be sure to buy one that also measures ambient temperature.3) Thermal camera
At one time, a thermal camera was the most coveted piece of paranormal investigation equipment. That's mostly because of its price, but also the quality of evidence it can capture. If you capture the thermal image of a human shape or some sort of globule, and you are certain it isn't a thermal reflection or your own thermal radiance, that's a pretty fantastic piece of evidence. With the advent of phone attachments and cheaper pricing on camera units, thermal cameras have become a more accessible piece of equipment than it once was.4) MOTION AND VIBRATION DETECTORS
Any serious paranormal investigator will use motion sensors or vibration detectors to pick up movement in empty rooms. A basic portable home security system, with a couple of sensors and a receiver, is an inexpensive option. Just place the sensor on a table or shelf in an unoccupied room and carry the receiver with you. The receiver will emit an alarm or chime when motion is detected in the empty location, and you can then send in the unluckiest member of your ghost-hunting crew to check it out.5) GHOST BOX
A ghost box is a catch-all term for a device used to verbally communicate with spirits. Many of these gadgets continually scan radio frequencies, creating a din of white noise. "The idea is the spirit can use that white noise to communicate in some way, either verbally or through EVP sessions," Ober says. Users can simply listen for disembodied voices, or yell questions into the void and hope for an answer from beyond.
