Each SIGHS investigation is specially designed to cater to the needs of each individual case. It is extremely important to us that the each client is left feeling fulfilled and have a better understanding of what is going on.
One of the major problems with so called "ghost hunting groups" these days is that the majority of them are comprised of little kids and immature thrill seekers. Most of these individuals are fueled by the recent popularity of the paranormal field that has spawned from popular television shows. The members of SIGHS are not like this, our members have a combined level of nearly 30 years of experience in the field and range from ages 24 to 51.
We at SIGHS take great pride in maintaining a professional attitude in everything that we do. From the moment of first contact with a potential client, right down to the completion of an investigation, we strive to be the absolute best that we can be.
We are aware that there are groups out there that will accept money in exchange for a paranormal investigation,have vowed that we will never charge for the services that we offer. We love what we do and we are here to help our clients in any way possible, not to rob them of their hard earned money. It is true that it takes a great deal of expense to perform our investigations but it's a price that we will gladly pay in order to do out part to bring peace of mind to our clients .
We understand that there are people that might be embarased or scared to contact a paranormal research group such as SIGHS. The main reason for this seems to be that people are afraid of what their friends and family will think about the situation, that is why we always keep our client's right to privacy in mind. Before SIGHS will even perform an investigation we make sure all of the proper paperwork is filled out, that includes a section within which the client can choose the level of privacy their particular case will recieve.
Once we are allowed permission to investigate a residence or business we will begin doing research on the locations history. We will be looking for past events on the property that could effect the case, such as previous deaths on the property. After we get our research we will hen perform an interview with the home owner or business manager, the purpose of thie interview is to find out the claims of paranormal activity. We will also ask questions that we may feel is appropriate for each individual case.
Once we have gotten all of the information that we need we will agree ith the owner/manager on a good date/time to perform our investigation. Usually an investigation will begin around 10:00PM and last about 5 hours, but specific times can be arranged if that's not convenient for all parties involved.
Although the typical investigation will not begin untin 10:00PM, SIGHS investigators will need to arrive early to plan the investigation and set up our equipment. We will aldo do a walk around the property with electro magnetic and temperature sensing equipment, the reason for this is to establish a base reading so that we can effectively log any strange readings that we may get throughout the night.
once the actual investigation is under way we will go in teams (usually of 2 or 3) and investigate different parts of the location. We will use video and audio monitoring equipment as well as take pictures with digital cameras. Once we feel that we have covered all of the bases we will wrap up the investigation, we will then take 3 or 4 days to review all of the potential evidence that we collected. AFter the review we will contact the client to establish a good time to meet and review any evidence that we found with the home owner
