FACT: A proximity sensor is a sensor that is able to detect the presence of nearby objects without physical contact, that are able to generate an electric current by interrupting the electro magnetic field generated by the sensor.
H.T.O. stands for Haunted Trigger Object. A trigger object is an object that a person who has passed away is still attracted to. Read up on the Time to Relative Object Theory and the Stone Tape Theory for more information.
THEORY: Theory #1:When a spirit/ghost manifests, it may give off an electromagnetic field, which may cause an interruption in the proximity sensor causing it to go off.
Theory #2: When a spirit/ghost manifests, it may give off a static electric charge, which may cause an interruption in the proximity sensor causing it to go off.
Theory # 3: When a spirit/ghost manifests it may move an object that is stationary to either get your attention or the object the ghost/spirit is moving had some kind of significant value when they were alive.
HOW TO USE: The first thing you want to do is plug the sensor into the device and then use the alligator clip to connect an object to the device. The object must be metal and not exceed 24 inches wide or long. Note: This device will not work on large objects. Press the red button on the top to turn on the device. If you want the device to sound then turn on the red button on the back of the device. Then set the correct sensitivity setting level. LIPI uses the following settings:
RANGE: The range form the meter to the active field for Non Contact is with in 1 inch of the trigger object. When using a trigger object the object cannot exceed 24 inches long or wide.
READINGS: If the meter does not pick up any activity, note that there was no paranormal activity through the H.T.O. Proximity Sensor in the field report. If the meter lights up then that means that there is some type of unusual activity, and should be noted in the field report. NOTE: When logging your readings in the field report, make sure to list what trigger object was used.
