The TIR Crosshair

Written by: Amber Atteberry


One of our favorite, but little known or used, pieces of ghost hunting equipment is the TIR Crosshair. A favorite of the Para4ce Team, the Crosshair not only alerts you of temperature changes, but the direction of where these temperature changes are, or, how fast the cold or warm spot is moving, which could indicate the presence and movement of a spirit.

How does the TIR work?

The Crosshair features an X and Y axis on its face- hence the name Crosshair. A total of 12 LED lights grace the face, 6 on each axis. Each LED light can display either red or blue. Each light change shows a 7.5-degree difference in thermal temperature with a detection range of 10 feet depending on the conditions of the environment. When cool air passes, the lights will turn blue, and when warm air passes, the lights will turn red. When cooler air is followed by warmer air, the lights will turn blue then red. When the temperature is ambient and there are no changes, the lights stay off.

How to use the tir on investigations

What this does for you is boost your investigation to an entirely new level by not just recording and observing these changes, but tracking them in real time. Spirits are thought to manifest by drawing energy from their surroundings, thus creating the cold spots that haunted locations often report. Most temperature taking equipment simply records and displays the current ambient temperature. The TIR takes temperature to another level, by visualizing the changes for the investigator. The investigator can see the temperature changes immediately. The direction of changes is also seen, allowing the investigator to be able to direct their attention to the area a spirit may be.

This unique, sophisticated, yet little known piece of equipment has been one of the more vital pieces of equipment on our Para4ce Investigations. By being able to instantly see temp changes and the direction of these changes, our investigators are able to focus their attention and energy in the right direction.
