How to Use The Thermometer

The Thermometer is used to detect Freezing Temperatures within the six-metre radius that the player using it is facing. Temperatures on the Thermometer are displayed in Celsius once it's turned on unless changed to Fahrenheit.

The Thermometer is a vital piece of equipment to take with you on all contracts, as it can be used to determine the presence of multiple ghost types. If the temperature shown on the device is 10C or below, this typically indicates that there is a ghostly presence nearby, likely just in the next room! However, if the maps Fuse Box is turned off, the temperature of the house, prison, or school you're exploring will slowly drop to 5C.

To actually confirm that the Thermometer is providing evidence of a ghost, you will need Freezing Temperatures that are below 0C to be able to put this into your Journal and narrow down your search. Freezing Temperatures are additionally confirmed by the air that you and other players will breathe. Just like if it was freezing in real life, you will begin to breathe clouds of cold air that will be visible on the screen.
