GS2 Laser Grid Sensor Array
Map a room and measure changes with laser precision.
The next evolution of our first major product, the GS1 Laser Grid, is now here and it's packed with features. The GS2 now combines our original laser grid projection system with an array of multiple precision sensors to shed light on more information about an entity than ever before. Plus, it's all built and designed right here at GhostStop by veteran investigators with a passion for thorough, quality detection that's easy to use - even in the dark.
- Visual laser grid projects a red pattern to identify visual disturbances
- Multiple sensors detect and alert to environment change within the laser-mapped area
- Senses motion, distance, direction and temperature fluctuations
- Conducts baseline readings
- Multiple displays indicate readings with sound alerts
- Event counter indicates number of occurrances with characteristics
- Visually determine dimensions, shape, speed for aid in 3D modeling
- Tripod mount on bottom of unit for easy directional placement (tripod not included)
- Rechargeable battery with USB charger
Imagine being able to map out everything you wanted to know about the physical aspects of a ghost or any anomaly that passes in front of you. Well now you can! This laser grid system can tell us direction, distance, temperature, shape, size and even helps us make a 3D model of the entity. Utilizing our original laser grid projector now combined with an array of over 65 sensor points, this mapping system gives us more information than ever before.

Laser Grid Projection Mapping
We've created a new laser grid projector just for the GS2 with greater sharpness and power. This laser blankets the surface area of a room with a projected visible pattern making it easy to visually identify anomalies entering the space. The sensors look at the area within the grid and log many detected characteristics of each 'Pixel' within the space. Like most GhostStop-brand products, we used red light whenever possible purposely for optimal night vision preservation in the environment.
Anything that passes in front of the laser with significant enough mass will cause a visual disturbance in the pattern and trigger visual displays on the device. With enough mass, the anomaly will reflect back a different pattern, bowing the lines along the surface. All of this information combined with the collected sensor data will be an aid to someone with 3D modeling experience to draw a model of the entity or object.
4 Lighted Displays & Sound Alerts
The GS2 features four helpful displays for quickly and easily visualizing what's going on in the space. For aid in alerting us when we're not within visual range, a sound alert triggers to indicate movement and alert us to a presence.
Defines direction of motion and temperature deviation using red and blue indicators for hot and cold.
Defines temperature changes in 64 points of the laser grid to define a shape and size based on red and blue indicators for hot a cold.
Displays distance of an object in the center of the grid which changes color and size to easily identify how close it is. Distance changes are also coupled with a sound alert that changes to indicate range.
Displays more detail including arrows for direction of movement, baseline readings, current readings and event count with related distance and temperature. This monitor can be turned on/off as you prefer. Turn it on using the slider switch next to it for detailed monitoring or turn it off for faster performance of the other displays.
Motion, Distance and Direction
Our combination of thermal and distance sensors provide far more precise manner of detecting motion than your typical motion sensor. While most motion sensors simply alert to a presence of motion, the GS2 senses changes in the entire mapped area for determining where the motion occurs, what distance it is and what direction it is moving.
Temperature and Shape Mapping
Now we can detect temperature changes within the mapped area and tell what direction it is moving. Utilizing a 64-point thermal sensor the GS2 detects hot and cold spots which it displays in multiple ways to provide location, temperature deviation (hotter or colder) then compares this all with baseline readings to alert us to change. Because our sensor array is looking at the entire surface area we're also able to display the size and shape of the anomaly on the center LED display. This shape is presented on the Shape Display in red or blue to indicate if it's hotter or colder than baseline.
Gathering baselines are important to proper investigation documentation. The first function upon turning on the GS2 is an initial period for baseline readings. It scans and collects sample readings from each Pixel within the laser grid including surface temperature and distance. Characteristics from this initial baseline scan is immediately stored in memory for comparison later which is where all of the calculations for future changes is gathered. A summary of the baseline readings is displayed on the detail screen.
Event Counter and Detail
Wouldn't you like to know how many times a presence entered the room while you're gone? The GS2 provides this and more. This 'Event Counter' determines and displays a total count of occurrences since it was turned on. This is especially helpful for noting if something happened in a room while you were not there. Simply take note of the number before leaving. If that number is higher when you return, something entered the space while you were away. The Event display also details the last Event with distance and temperature deviation, "Hot" or "Cold".
How to use the GS2Just place the laser grid in an area projecting onto a solid surface. You can set the size of the grid based on the distance to the wall or surface. For best results, set it next to a video camera for documentation. Once you turn it on, it will allow you time to step away out of the projected area. Ensure the device is solid and no moving objects are within the field of view. Once this period is over it will conduct a quick baseline scan of the area for later use. It will then begin alerting to changes in the environment using the 4 displays and sound alerts. To reset the baseline simply turn the device off and back on again. You can choose to use the Detail Monitor or not at any time based on your preferences using the slide switch next to it.
While scanning, watch for any changes on the displays or sound alerts. If in use, the Detail Monitor will provide immediate detailed readings.
This unit includes an on/off toggle switch for power and another for independent use of the monitor. The unit is rechargeable via a standard USB cable and has a metal tripod mount on the bottom for setting on any standard tripod. When storing, make sure to attach the included sensor protection cap. This snaps on and off easily to protect the precision sensors when not in use.

*NOTE: Parts of the GS2 are 3D printed right here at GhostStop. Each one is made with great care by hand. As such, each one may have unique elements in the texture that could appear to be small defects. These unique elements do not affect the function of the product. Though we do our best to keep them as uniform as possible, each one will be unique in some small way since they are each printed and hand-built for quality. Thanks for your understanding in that.
