There is a large amount of equipment used by DUST Members in an investigation. We will go through most of them below:



Main System:

16 Channel DVR (CCTV) System

Able to record up to 16 DVR Infrared / Colour Cameras simultaneously.

These cameras are setup in all the “hotspots”, and other points of interest, around the investigation site, and monitored at the base station.



Digital Voice Recorder

Digital voice recorder that is set near equipment during investigations.

Currently we use one digital voice recorder next to each DVR camera that we use in an investigation.

These voice recorders record in wav format, so there is no compression, eliminating the chance of audio corruption due to compression.





Carried and Used By DUST Members:

Full Spectrum Video Camera

Digital video camera that has been modified to capture video in the full spectrum light range.



Full Spectrum Still Camera

Digital still camera that has been modified to capture pictures in the full spectrum light range.



Full Spectrum Flood Light

Flood light to illuminate the area for the Full Spectrum Still and Video Cameras.

Currently, we use one full spectrum light for each device.



Kodak Easyshare Sport Still Camera

Standard 12MP digital still camera that takes standard digital photographs.

This camera is waterproof to about 3m, also dustproof.



Sony Digital Video Camera

Digital video camera with “nightshot” mode that records in infrared.



Infrared Light

Infrared light to illuminate the area for infrared video, still and DVR Cameras.

Currently, we use one IR light for each device.



Digital Voice Recorder

Digital voice recorder that is carried by DUST Members during investigations.

These are used for EVP sessions, generally recording during the whole investigation, which can help capture EVP’s that were not heard by the naked ear.

These voice recorders record in wav format, so there is no compression, eliminating the chance of audio corruption due to compression.



Mel Meter

The Mel Meter measures both Electromagnetic Fields (EMF), and also ambient temperature.

EMF meters can be used to see if an area has high EMF, (which can cause paranoia, nausea, general feeling of uneasiness that can be mistaken for paranormal activity).

EMF meters can also be used to detect EMF fluctuations in areas that shouldn’t fluctuate.

The ambient temperature within the Mel Meter can help detect slight changes in temperature within the area being investigated.



EMF Meter

Electromagnetic Field meter, used by DUST Members to measure electromagnetic readings during an investigation.

EMF meters can be used to see if an area has high EMF, (which can cause paranoia, nausea, general feeling of uneasiness that can be mistaken for paranormal activity).

EMF meters can also be used to detect EMF fluctuations in areas that shouldn’t fluctuate.



KII Meter

A KII meter also detects EMF, therefore the description for the EMF meter above is the same for the KII meter, only the KII meters have different colour LED’s that illuminate to illustrate the level of the EMF field being detected.



Standard Digital Thermometer

Digital thermometers are used to get temperature readings, and to detect changes in temperature.

The standard digital thermometer is a “point and shoot” type thermometer, and only gives a reading of what it is aimed at.



Digital Thermometer With Ambient Temperature

Digital thermometers are used to get temperature readings, and to detect changes in temperature.

The digital thermometer with ambient temperature meter not only gives a reading of what it is aimed at, but also gives a reading of the ambient temperature of the area it is being used in at the same time.

This is good for detecting and effectively “chasing” the fluctuations in temperature, which could be a spirit trying to manifest itself (of course it could also not be a spirit, and is never used as evidence presented to anyone, unless alot of other activity surrounds it).





Props / Other Detection Equipment:

Laser Grid Pen

The laser grid pen is a green laser that projects a large amount of “dots”.

These dots are visible against surfaces such as walls, floors, ceilings, doors, etc.

The laser grid pen is generally used where a video or DVR camera is pointed, this way any “dots” that black out can be detected, so unknown movement can be seen and documented.



Geophone

The geophone is a device used by DUST Members to detect any vibrations within a radius of the geophone.

Geophones are generally used in areas where “footsteps” are reported to be heard to try and detect vibrations from these “footsteps”.

Of course, they can be used where “footsteps” aren’t heard too.

When vibrations are detected by the geophone, the geophone emits a very loud audible alarm to alert the DUST Members to the vibrations near the geophone.

When vibrations are detected by the geophone, this geophone gives a visual notification via the LED lights.



Yes / No Trigger Prop

The Yes / No trigger prop is an exciting piece of equipment.

As you can see, it has Yes and No (also Y and N) on it, and the Yes is Green and the No is Red.

This device can be used to try and get interaction from an entity in the hopes of asking questions and getting yes / no answers from the entity.

This unit can be triggered either by physically pressing the desired response button, or each button also has an EMF detector built in, so the entity can just “go near” the desired button and it will illuminate.



Trigger Object Monitor - (TOM)

This device works by clipping the wire onto a metal trigger object.

When a static or EM field moves near the item, the TOM will alarm and light up the LEDs.

The TOM is generally used in locations where something in particular is being moved constantly, or to place a trigger object on it, that might be of interest to an entity.

TOM's can also be used as a communication device by getting the spirit to interact when asking questions. For example, a yes answer would be for the entity to trigger the alarm, a no answer would be to not trigger the alarm.



Electro Magnetic Speaker (EMS)

Essentially, an EMS is a speaker that plays sound as a magnetic field, rather than playing it audibly.

The reason behind this is that we find a lot of paranormal activity appears to react more with the introduction of EMF into the area.

This device will enable you to play music (eg: Trigger music, white noise, trigger sounds, etc), through an EMF.

You will be able to play various songs and sounds, without polluting EVP sessions, audio or video evidence.



Temp Alarm Pod

The Temp Alarm Pod is a device used to detect changes in temperature in an area.

The Temp Alarm Pod detects both raises and drops in temperature, and alerts showing a different colour light for each.



EM-Stat Pod

The EM-Stat Pod detects electromagnetic and static fields that pass by, as far away as a meter from the antenna.

The EM-Stat Pod gives off both an audible and a visual alarm when this happens.



IR Shadow Detector

The IR Shadow Detector is a shadow / movement detector.

The IR Shadow Detector can be setup to use either an Infra Red Light, or a Laser Pointer as the trigger device.
