Using thermometers for ghost hunting is a common practice among paranormal investigators. The idea behind it is that spirits manifest themselves as cold spots or areas of temperature variation. Thermometers can detect these changes in temperature, allowing investigators to potentially identify paranormal activity.

However, it's important to approach ghost hunting with a critical mindset. While thermometers can detect fluctuations in temperature, there could be various explanations for these changes other than the presence of spirits. Natural environmental factors, drafts, and even psychological influences can all affect perceived temperature changes.

When using thermometers for ghost hunting, it's essential to establish a baseline temperature in the environment and to rule out any mundane explanations for temperature variations. Additionally, combining temperature readings with other types of evidence, such as audio recordings or electromagnetic field (EMF) measurements, can provide a more comprehensive understanding of the situation.

Ultimately, while thermometers can be a useful tool in paranormal investigations, it's crucial to approach ghost hunting with skepticism and to consider alternative explanations for any observed phenomena.

Ghost hunting with the right thermometer, depending on the situation, involves using the correct device to detect temperature changes that are believed to be associated with paranormal activity. Your selection should depend upon your surroundings and the environmental conditions you are in. There are two main types of thermometers used in investigating the paranormal: infrared and Ambient.

  • Ambient Thermometers: The primary function of an ambient thermometer is to measure the temperature of whatever the probe or thermistor comes into contact with, including the air around it and around you. These models present the data digitally.

  • Infrared Thermometers: These thermometers work differently whereas the IR wave is emitted from a hand-held device in conjunction with a laser pointer which aids in knowing the direction in which the thermometer is pointed. Their precision depends upon its distance from the said object, so measuring an item up close can get a completely different reading then measuring an object from a long distance due to the thermometer is also collecting the temperature reading of the air between the object and itself.


Here's a step-by-step guide to help you get started:

  • Choose Your Equipment:

    • Get a reliable thermometer. Look for one with a wide temperature range and good accuracy.

    • Consider using additional equipment like EMF detectors, EVP recorders, and cameras for a comprehensive investigation.

  • Select Your Location:

    • Choose a location with reported paranormal activity or historical significance.

    • Ensure you have permission to investigate the area, especially if it's private property.

  • Set Up Your Equipment:

    • Turn on your thermometer and allow it to calibrate to the ambient temperature.

    • If possible, mount the thermometer on a tripod or stable surface for consistent readings.

  • Establish Baseline Readings:

    • Take initial temperature readings of the area and note them down. This establishes a baseline for comparison during the investigation.

  • Start the Investigation:

    • Move through the location slowly, focusing on areas of reported activity or areas that feel unusual.

    • Use the thermometer to take readings at different spots, especially areas where there are temperature fluctuations.

  • Look for Anomalies:

    • Pay attention to any sudden changes in temperature that cannot be explained by natural factors like drafts or heating systems.

    • Document these anomalies with the time, location, and temperature readings.

  • Correlate Data:

    • Use other equipment like EMF detectors or EVP recorders simultaneously. Look for correlations between temperature changes and other paranormal phenomena.

  • Review and Analyze:

    • After the investigation, review all data collected, including temperature readings and other sensor data.

    • Analyze the data for patterns or anomalies that may indicate paranormal activity.

  • Stay Objective:

    • Remain open-minded and consider alternative explanations for any observed phenomena. Not all temperature fluctuations may be paranormal in nature.

  • Document Findings:

    • Create a detailed report of your investigation, including all data collected, observations, and any potential paranormal experiences.


Remember, ghost hunting requires patience, attention to detail, and a critical mindset.

Various Thermometers Used In Paranormal Investigating

Omni Pod 3 in 1 Ghost Hunting Equipment with Proximity Sensor, Temperature, and Barometric 

  • 3 in 1 tool sensing proximity, temperature and barometric sensors

  • Keep track remotely with wifi data logger

  • Light and sound alerts when variable fluctuations

  • Monitor with a mobile app

  • 3 different paranormal tools in one

Omni Pod 3 in 1 Ghost Hunting Equipment with Temperature, Barometric and Wifi Data Logger.

Once the Omnipod is calibrated, place it in a location where you suspect there might be paranormal activity. Track the analysis variables from your cellphone and set alarm thresholds so that the Omnipod notifies you when any of the thresholds have been surpassed. When this occurs, the application will alert you through sound alerts and you will be able to observe the analysis on a graph that can be saved as a report for future analysis.

  • Research report features allo​w users to view activity and temperature variations at a given time, graph them, and save the report for future analysis.

  • Light and sound alert features will alert users when an entity is around the Omni Pod and notifies them of any variable fluctuations with the configured thresholds. 

  • Customized sound alerts using the proprietary app feature enables users to adjust the alerts as they desire.

  • Free monitoring app IOS and Android compatible feature allows users to fully customize their experience.

  • Fully adjustable sensibility feature provides complete analog sensibility parameters.

Electromagnetic fields, known as EMFs, are produced by various electrical devices. These fields can be found in appliances, cell phones, electrical wiring, and even the human body. The K-II EMF Meter is designed to measure these fields, enabling users to pinpoint devices with high emissions and make educated choices about reducing exposure. Fluctuations in EMFs have been linked to areas where mysterious events, such as supposed hauntings, have been documented. The K-II is powered by a single 9V battery and displays EMF readings across five milliGauss ranges.

The K2 EMF meter is a versatile tool that can detect electromagnetic fields (EMF) within a frequency range of 50-20,000 Hz with an accuracy of 5% at 50-60 Hz. This device is ideal for both Paranormal Research and for identifying potentially harmful high EMF levels in your home or workplace. Its compact size allows for easy portability, ensuring that you are always prepared to take readings. The meter comes equipped with a high-quality 9V battery that offers long-lasting power. Operating the device is simple - just click to turn it on and click again to turn it off. While the UV reactive label is a new and interesting feature, it is not essential for viewing the detected EMF levels. Additionally, the colored LED lights provide clear readings that are easily visible in both daylight and darkness.


TriField EMF Meter TF2 Detects Radio, Magnetic & Electric Fields for 5G, Cell Towers and Bluetooth

TriField EMF Meter

The TriField EMF Meter Model TF2 serves as an AC gaussmeter, AC electric field meter, and radio power density meter all in one device. It is equipped with all the necessary features for precise and efficient measurements of electromagnetic fields (EMF). In addition to the standard AC measurement modes, a unique frequency weighted mode is available to accurately scale the magnetic and electric measurements, providing a comprehensive view of the currents generated by each type of field within the human body. 

Magnetic (“MAG”) Fields: Turn the knob to Standard MAG or Weighted MAG. In a typical home or office with low EMF, living areas will read 3.0 milligauss or less on Standard MAG and 5.0 milligauss or less on weighted.

Electric (“ELEC”) fields: In an electromagnetically quiet home or office, both Standard and Weighted will read less than 50 V/m, but the reading may be higher when the meter is pointed toward fluorescent lights, a wall outlet or switch plate, or an improperly-grounded appliance.

Radio/Microwave ("RF") Fields: This meter reads RF and microwaves in the frequency range 20 MHz to 6 GHz. This includes most new 5G installations, but not experimental millimeter wave 5G.
