Attention Ghost Catchers

Verizon Halloween Tech Series: Use wireless technology to track paranormal activity.

By on October 9, 2014

The mantra of the famed Ghostbusters in the movie of the same name was, “I ain’t afraid of no ghost!” When there’s something strange or paranormal in your neighborhood this Halloween, how will you detect it? You could call a local self-proclaimed ghost buster, or you could make sure you have the right technology for the job.

“When you rely on technology as your channel of communication with the spirit world, it’s very important that it be the most reliable there is,” said Rhonda Burton, co-founder of Arkansas Ghost Catchers.

Two apps that can be used for entertainment purposes are Ghost Radar and SV-1 SpiritVox Ghost Box EVP. The Ghost Radar app, for example, is designed to detect paranormal energy and activity around you. It has a storage base of more than 2,000 words that spirits can use as a channel of communication. If there’s a fluctuation in activity on the radar, there just may be a spirit out there trying to communicate with you. The SV-1 SpiritVox Ghost Box EVP app is another app to use while attempting to communicate with those on the other side. You can use it to get an audio recording of your adventure. Be sure to listen carefully, because you never know who may be trying to say “hi.”

To further document your paranormal adventure, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features a 16-megapixel camera and powerful optical image stabilization to bring sharply into focus that thing that may be lurking in the dark corner. You’ll want clear proof of what your eyes just saw.

When you head out on your next ghost-hunting adventure, be sure to use the best technology for the task. How else will you prove to your friends what you saw or heard?
