Tracer Light Wire

Visualize motion like never before.

The new Tracer Light Wire is just what you need to enhance your investigations in a cool new way. This innovative device literally brings motion visualization to light - by allowing you to lay down a wire of LED rope lights and watch as it illuminates a path in front of it based on motion and distance. This is especially useful in hallways or other places where something appears to be walking along a path. It’s perfect for getting visual confirmation of paranormal activity in any space. 

  • Multiple ultrasonic motion and distance sensors
  • Detachable light wire for marking movement
  • Easy to see and simple setup
  • Choose 1 or 2 wires to suit the needs of the case
  • Rechargeable, long-life battery

Whether you’re a professional investigator or someone passionate about exploring the supernatural, the Tracer light wire is a must-have tool that will help you with all your investigations!

Trace motion along a path.

tracer light wire front viewTracer is designed to help you visualize motion in real-time and gain insights wherever activity has happened. Literally, tracing a ghost's path. Lay the wire out straight and let our two ultrasonic motion sensors scan the path, noting distance and lighting up when it detects active motion. The LED wire will light up in white to indicate movement and subtly switch over to red for a short period after, allowing you to clearly see where the activity is coming from if you didn't catch it right away. So you don't have to stare at the device all night, this gives you time to look over and note the path it took.

Easy to see. Simple to setup.

It's easy to put into action – just one push of a button gets you started. Setting up is simple – just place the device down on the ground and layout the LED wire in a straight line from the sensors. Use one or two as you see fit. Sit back and watch for activity as the rope illuminates. This amazing tool is ideal for hallways or anywhere something might be walking a path, giving you an unmistakable piece of evidence of supernatural activity. With the Tracer scanner, paranormal investigations have never been easier or more informative. And, let's be honest... just plain cool.

The alerting lights are bright and easy to spot. We use bright white light for active motion to get your attention, even if you only see it at the corner of your eye. Once the object is gone, it switches to red for a short time to mark where activity took place giving you time to note when and where it happened. The core unit is lit on the top so you always know where it is and the ends of each LED strip are lit blue so you can always have your eye on where the wire leads even in total darkness (and where to avoid stepping).

Light your investigation with precision.

Utilizing multiple high resolution ultrasonic sensors, this advanced device detects any activity or objects that may be directly in the path of the sensors. A simple wave of your hand or a walk along its line will trigger the lights, indicating something is present in sight.

Tracer's talent lies in seeking out true obstructions, not stray signals in the air. Since it is not influenced by EMF electromagnetic fields or radio interference from walkie talkies, you can trust Tracer Light Wire to light up only when there’s truly something within the designated path. Don't let uncertainty keep you from uncovering the truth – trust the precision of Tracer!

As the name indicates, ultrasonic sensors measure the presence of objects in sight and measure its distance using ultrasonic waves. Each sensor head emits an ultrasonic wave in a tight cone and 'listens' for the receiving wave reflected back from the target, if any. Based on the time it takes to receive the wave bouncing back, it's able to measure distance. As such, if the sensors indicate a presence you can be sure it was something along the path.

Choose your own path. Get creative.

With many uses, we're looking forward to see how creative you get with this. Though the primary use is for both light wires to be placed straight out from the sensor for direct correlation with the sensor, you can get creative. For instance, you could wrap the rope around a trigger object and ask for an entity to "light it up" by coming near the device. Maybe try using it as a Yes/No answer device by asking an entity to move to one side for Yes and the other for No. Use one wire with the device on a chair and see if something walks up to sit down. We're excited to see what you come up with!

The core of Tracer is a device with line-of-sight sensors on both sides. Each side has an attachment for one LED wire. Use just one or both to suit the needs of the case. Each wire is easily detachable for storage. Just unplug it, roll it up and pack it away for your next ghost hunt.

Quick Start Guide

Plug in one or two LED wires using the connector side of each wire to the appropriate harness on either side of the base on the core unit.

Place the unit on the ground in an area you wish to capture motion. For best use, place each wire in a straight light direction out from the core unit. Since each sensor detects in a straight line, this is the best way to visualize activity in a direct line correlating with the sensor. However, you can get creative with it if you like by wrapping the LED wire around something. Just know that the sensors are detecting in a straight line.

Turn the device on by pushing the red button located on the base of the core unit. You will see the LED wire light up and run through a animation while it's booting up. Give it a few seconds to complete this sequence. Once the lights go out leaving one blue light at the end of each wire, it is ready to go.

Display & Lights

In a normal state, while Tracer is looking for motion you will only see one small blue light at the end of each light wire.

Live readings are represented along the LED wire white as it happens. The white is helpful in catching your attention in a dark room. Move your hand or walk along the path to see how it works.

As soon as the object moves from the path, the 'zone' that saw something will turn red to mark this spot for a few seconds. This is helpful in case you were not staring at the meter at the time of the occurance.

Proper Placement for Best Results

As illustrated in the drawing above, each sensor seeks out interruptions in a 'cone of influence.' As such, the surface it sits on should be flat and non reflective. Make sure the base unit sits upright.

Hard surfaces like polished wood or tile could reflect sound easier than rug of concrete. If you are seeing the light wire illuminate constantly in the same area, raise the base unit up off the ground a few inches. Maybe put a book under the unit to get it up off the ground slightly. This will help reduce or illuminate issues from reflection on the ground.

This also goes for objects along the path or at the end of the light wire. Ensure there are no objects along the way, especially those with reflective surfaces like mirrors and glass.

Replacement Light Wire

We have replacement light wires for Tracer if you need a replacement or an additional light wire for backup.

Directions for Charging

  • Using the USB cable provided, plug it into any standard USB power source. For plugging into a standard wall AC outlet you will need a common AC/USB adapter (not included).
    • Red light on the bottom = Charging
    • Blue light on the bottom = Fully Charged
  • A fully-charged battery will last around 2.5 hours under normal conditions.
    • NOTE: Power consuption is highly dependant on how often the sensor and lights are triggered. If it is triggering constantly, the battery life will be less.
  • Charging takes about 1 hour.
  • For UNLIMITED USE, this device can be used while it's charging via wall outlet or USB battery pack. A USB battery pack is handy so you can use the device and continue charging all while being completely mobile.


Make sure to take care of the sensor area. These sensors are highly sensitive and should be protected from debris, damage, moisture and extreme temperatures. We advise to protect the unit in a foam case especially due to the sensors when traveling.

    This item arrived to the UK within the time frame. It has had some use with by myself and TV ‘s Ryan O’Neill (spooked/haunted scotland) with some good results. Looking forward to seeing this in action over coming events and possibly future shows ?? many thanks Ghoststop, i will be ordering again.

    Love the Tracer Light Wire

    Posted by Tracy on Apr 23rd 2023

    I used this for the first time last weekend and it worked great. One strip of lighting was great but I should've gotten 2. It's light weight and so easy to set up. I am so glad I did get it and would definitely recommend it to anyone!!

    TRACER Test

    Posted by Jeremy Wilson on Mar 28th 2023

    I bought GhostStops "Tracer" the day it was released. It arrived very fast and I have been relentlessly testing it since Saturday March 25th. Overall, I am happy with it. The only issue I have had is the internal battery only last a little over one hour. I did connect it to a GhostStop external battery and it then lasted a very long time. The Tracer is overall a very well made and solid investigative device. I definately recommend adding it to you your equipment inventory.
