What is the Alice Box? Tips and Tricks

What Is the Alice Box?

Alice Box devices use Instrumental Trans Communication (ITC) to record the voices of spirits that appear in audiovisual form. A German physicist named Professor Ernst Senkowski coined the term Instrumental Trans Communication. This refers to the practice of communicating with spirits through electronic devices. It allows a spirit to influence the Alice device to communicate with the living.

Alice Boxes come in three different models, each with a similar purpose.

1. The Alice Box Lite ITC

The Alice Box Lite ITC is a device used in paranormal investigations. It is a handheld, stand-alone device that generates words to help with effective communication with the spirit world. The word generator contains over 2000 words.

It is available in four languages: German, Hungarian, Italian, and the default language English. This device is not equipped with an OLED display monitor and is meant to be the lighter version of the DNA Psychokinetic.

2. The Alice DNA Psychokinetic ITC Box

Like the Alice Box Lite ITC, this word generator model comes in four languages with up to 5000 words preloaded. The key difference is that the Alice DNA Psychokinetic ITC Box has a display OLED screen. It displays two-worded lines: the present word captured and the last word or phrase.

The device works with Windows software, using a unique algorithm and routine to record the words a spirit communicates. Every paranormal investigator should include the DNA Psychokinetic box in their ghost-hunting equipment arsenal. It is one of the most popular devices among the paranormal community.

3. Alice Box ITC Device Retro

This device works like the DNA Psychokinetic box and has a two-line display OLED display screen. The difference is that it comes in a Retro shell and is slightly larger. The Retro Box dimensions are 20 cm in height, a width measuring 15 cm and a depth of 10 cm. While it is the larger device of all three models, the bulk of the design is perfectly comfortable as a handheld device.


The Alice Box Lite, DNA Psychokinetic, and Retro Alice Box have some variation between designs.

All three Alice models have three large LED lights on the front of the device. The Alice Box Lite’s on and off switch is located on the right-hand side of the device. The Retro’s switch is found at the back, and the DNA Psychokinetic’s switch is on the left side of the device.

Each LED light has a specific function to help ghost hunters understand when communications are happening. As the paranormal investigator asks questions, the red LED light will illuminate while seeking or scanning. The orange LED light will light up and then beep before the green light flashes when the message is read out loud or appears on the OLED screen.

Four AA Alkaline cell batteries power the device, lasting approximately six to eight hours of continued use. Depending on the brand of AA Alkaline batteries you use, your Alice device can continue to run for much longer. You’ll catch audio evidence with either device, no matter which model you choose.

What Is the Alice Box Mobile and Windows App?

The Alice Box app is available to download on Android, iOS, and Windows devices. Instead of using an Alice device, this allows you to use a mobile device or tablet. The software uses natural language programming and artificial intelligence to capture communication from spirit entities.

The mobile app and Windows software work differently from the Alice hardware devices. Instead of physical LED lights, the lights are displayed on the screen. A beep will sound before displaying the words or phrases on the screen. When using software or a mobile app, you need to rely on reading the text on the screen instead of listening to it like you would with hardware devices. So, paying attention to the screen is important to see what’s being said from the other side.

How Do You Use an Alice Box?

The Alice Box is perhaps one of the easiest and most effective devices to use. As the paranormal investigator asks questions, the box scans the haunted location. The device’s red light beams while it searches for a response. An orange light indicates a reply is being prepared, and a green light will display the message using built-in words from the device’s dictionary.

The device is simple and uncomplicated while also producing exceptional results.

How to Install the Alice App Using a Software Licence Key

The software program ALICE was custom-designed to run on the Windows platform. To use the app, you must download it from the App Store or Google Play. There is a fee associated with downloading the app.

Click the start switch on the screen once the app is downloaded and opened. You will notice the lights flashing on your screen, which is when you should start asking questions to get a response.

When the app’s program and code are influenced, the flashing lights stop, and after a short pause, a word or phrase is displayed on the output line for you to read.

The app has a session-logging feature that allows you to record your paranormal session. The built-in dictionary includes words and phrases, and as the app creators and paranormal investigators mention, it is not uncommon for the app to provide you with names.


What’s the difference between an ITC and an EVP device?

Instrumental Trans Communication (ITC) and Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) fall under the physical mediumship category, since they both involve the spirit’s influence on objects and electronic equipment.

What is the difference between a spirit box and an Alice Box?

Unlike an Alice Box, which uses Instrumental Trans Communication, a spirit box or ghost box uses radio frequencies to capture communication from spirits. This is also known as Radio Voice Phenomenon (RVP) in the paranormal field. Spirit boxes typically operate on either the AM frequency between 535 and 1064 kHz or the FM frequency between 88 and 108 MHz.

How does a digital EVP recorder capture disembodied voices?

A digital EVP recorder captures sounds from the environment through a built-in or external microphone. Most paranormal investigators use headphones to detect disembodied voices that are difficult to hear with the naked ear.
