Wireless Data Loggers Used As Ghost Hunting Equipment
By: CAS DataLoggers
CAS DataLoggers had a unique customer—a group of paranormal investigators going ghost hunting! The organization planned to use ghost hunting equipment with extensive temperature monitoring to pinpoint the sudden chills which guests reported in certain rooms on their list of possibly haunted sites, including historically significant areas such as bedrooms, basements, and attics.
Keeping their modest budget in mind, the team began searching for a wireless temperature monitoring solution that would allow personnel to view readings in real-time to respond whenever the temperature suddenly dropped in certain regions.
The paranormal investigators installed a T&D RTR-500 Wireless Data Logger Base Station and 5 RTR-501 Wireless Temperature Data Loggers throughout their first house under monitoring and also used a T&D RTR-500DC Wireless Data Logger Handheld Data Collector to check the remote units' real-time readings.
The organization chose the optional wall mounts which let them place the units anywhere to identify possible temperature causes such as pipes, cracks, etc. Utilizing a low-energy consumption design, each data logger operated on a lithium battery with a life of about 10 months and which could be upgraded to last about 4 years of operation.
The team registered the RTR-500 as a base unit and began downloading temperature data and current readings from the remote units stationed around the house. Whenever their preset upper or lower limits were exceeded, a warning report email was immediately sent out to all four of the members' email addresses. Frequent temperature drops were soon associated with certain areas, which were recorded and stored for future investigation.
Using the handheld data collector, the team viewed all the remote units' real-time data from 500 ft. away unobstructed–
The team's ghost hunting project gained an effective ghost hunting equipment solution by installing the T&D wireless temperature monitoring system. Using the handheld data collector, the team was able to instantly check the temperatures anywhere in the house instead of having to walk upstairs every time a reading changed. Together these wireless devices formed a wide-ranging and cost-effective solution for this unique temperature monitoring job.
