Infrared thermometers (IR) infer temperature using a portion of the thermal radiation emitted by the object of measurement. They are sometimes called laser thermometers if a laser is used to help aim the thermometer, or non-contact thermometers to describe the device’s ability to measure temperature from a distance.

Pro’s:

Can read temperature from a distance, Back lit display for easy reading, Laser sights for accuracy of what is giving off temp,

Con’s:

Can read temperature from a distance although accuracy is sacrificed.

USB Date Loggers

Data loggers connect to a computer to download the temperature data collected during an investigation and can be used to make graphs or compare readings from other loggers used, to detect cold spots and temperature deviations throughout the night.

Pro’s:

Easy to track data on temps in a location over a period of time, probe type has more accurate readings.

Con’s:

You have to download the data before you know what is found – no instant gratification, No range as its a probe type.

In addition to detecting AC/DC EMF & Temperature changes in the environment, it also uses a mini telescopic antenna to radiate its own independent magnetic Field around the instrument. This EM field can be easily influenced by materials and objects that conduct electricity with 4 lights that show source proximity, strength and EM field distortion.

Pro’s:

All in one for Temperature and EMF reader, Back lit display, better for detecting cold spots as it uses a probe, can record hi/lo temperature readings.

Con’s:

No ranged readings, as probe is centralized.
