What Is Ghost Hunting Equipment?

Ghost hunting equipment refers to a set of devices used by paranormal investigators. Ghost hunters use these tools to detect and document potential paranormal activity. And the goal is to prove or disprove the existence of ghosts and spirits. The existence of ghosts is a matter of belief and debate. But those who engage in ghost hunting use these tools to investigate. And they gather evidence in locations that are believed to be haunted.

Don’t worry, we have put a little more information together for this blog than a quick list, we want to explain to you why each piece of ghost hunting equipment is needed and how it can help you with your investigations. Read on to find out all you need to know about the most important pieces of ghost hunting equipment.

Some common types of ghost hunting equipment include:

Digital Voice Recorder

Any seasoned ghost hunter will understand the importance of having a digital voice recorder on hand at any investigation. There is nothing worse than not having a recording device, and you hear something as clear as day. But if you have an electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) recorder, you can listen to the sounds you heard time and time again. Your voice recorder will be perfect for documenting voices from the spirits or entities that are trying to communicate with you.

Our team here at spirit shack believe that a voice recorder is quite possibly one of the most important pieces of equipment you can take on an investigation. Why would you not want to capture any voices or sounds you can? If a voice recorder sounds like a piece of equipment you would like, you can check out our selection right here. From our 8 GB digital EVP recorder through to our EVP wristwatch recorder, we have everything you could need when it comes to recorders.

Camera & Video Camera

If you are out on an investigation, and you come across a high presence of spirits, wouldn’t it be remarkable if you could capture it on camera? What if we told you, you can! You can use a portable SLS camera, this is perfect for capturing the spirits you meet along your investigations. Having a digital camera that works using infrared helps highlight any spirits you meet, helping you see where they are in the room and also giving you the chance to record the interactions. Please ensure if you are using a digital camera that you ask the spirit’s permission.

Take a look through the selection of cameras we have available here at Spirit Shack, our stock includes products ranging from portable SLS cameras for ghost hunting through to an SLS camera pro with tablet, rechargeable batteries and wide-angle lens. The best range for every ghost hunter looking for equipment.

Electromagnetic Field Reader

An EMF reader should be part of any ghost hunter’s equipment or anyone who enjoys searching for paranormal activities. An EMF meter measures any obvious changes in electromagnetic fields, it is believed that ghosts create the magnetic field changes when they arrive into a room or a specific space. This allows you to use the meter to communicate with the spirit and use it as a tool to get answers to questions.

Using EMF meters is a great way to explain drops in the temperature and items moving, all things which are associated with paranormal activity. It is a must-have piece of kit that you can pair with other pieces of ghost hunting equipment to retrieve some high-quality data.

Motion Triggered Equipment

More often than not people associate motion triggered equipment as being a camera of some description, but here at SpiritShack we have a range of motion triggered equipment available to make your experience of searching for the paranormal a little more exciting. Using motion triggered equipment allows you to monitor a space without being there.

We have found here at Spirit Shack that the most popular motion triggered piece of equipment used is a product called ghost hunting cat bells, these are traditionally made for pet toys and have been repurposed for communicating with the spirits. This equipment is perfect for spreading multiple options around the floor and asking the spirits to touch specific ones or communicate through answers, intelligent spirits will be more than capable of this.

Ghost Hunting Box

One of most important pieces of ghost hunting equipment you can purchase on the market today, perfect for every single ghost hunter, whether you are experienced or brand new to ghost hunting, this should 100% be in your equipment box, a ghost box. The term ghost box is used to describe a device that can directly communicate with spirits, one of the most comprehensive ways to try and talk to ghosts and spirits.

Spirits use radio frequency as a way to communicate, integrating their voice with white noise so that their sound can be travelled to the explorer and translated, so you can hear them, almost breaking down the barrier between the living and the dead. When you use the ghost box, you can distinguish between the voices of the spirits and simple white noise, it is one of the best ways you can try and communicate.

There are multiple different models and makes on the market today, here at Spirit Shack our favourite machine is the P-SB22 Spirit Box with Dual Sweep, a sophisticated piece of equipment that will help you communicate with the spirits. As one of the more expensive options on the market, you can also look at machines such as the DeadBox, or manual tune spirit box FM/AM, these are accessible for ghost hunters just starting out.
