A Low Cost EMF Detector – Crowdfunded

I started ElectricSense because I wanted to do something I believed in.

Over the years I've come to realize that there are other people in this ‘EMF-health arena' doing what they believe in.

Nick Clough EMF ProtectionNick Clough is one of them.

He runs a company called Sensory Perspective Ltd. He's American, but lives in the UK.

Strangely enough it was his 5 year old son that set Nick off on the EMF trail.

Let me explain.

28 years ago Nick's job was designing and manufacturing Geiger counters – what's used to detect and measure alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays. He learned a lot about nuclear radiation, but later he began to see reports and studies about the health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

Like nuclear radiation, EMFs are invisible – without meters, (most) people can't detect it.

Serious Health Risks

On reading the studies he realized that all the wonderful and practical wireless technologies everybody had started using, posed very serious health risks.

He remembered a story that one of his Geiger counter customers had once told him. His customer told him how once he'd taken his Geiger counter home. He wandered around from room to room and was horrified when suddenly he heard it clicking wildly as he neared his bed. It turned out he'd stored a box of old aircraft instruments under there and that the dials were covered in highly radioactive Radium paint. His customer had been unwittingly exposing himself to harmful alpha, beta, and gamma radiation.

Nick couldn't help but think a similar scenario could be taking place in his own home.

So he borrowed a £2000 EMF Frequency Analyzer and checked out his 5 year-old son's bedroom. He was shocked to discover a mobile phone mast (cell tower) 60 meters from his window!

The mobile phone mast had always been there but it wasn't until he saw the readings on the EMF meter that the penny dropped.

Every minute his son spent in his bedroom he was exposed to pulsing microwave frequency radiation at levels higher than those now allowed in Italy, Switzerland, India, Russia, and China!

He immediately went out and bought some military grade shielding material and lined his curtains and walls with it. Another sweep with the EMF meter reassured him his son was safe.

But that wasn't the only EMF problem he found. The EMF meter also revealed that the cordless DECT phone next to his own bed was emitting a strong signal 24/7 and through several walls, even when the handset was missing.

It was emitting just as much radiation as the mobile phone mast 60m away.

Nick was shocked. But this made him realize that probably EVERY home and office must have similar issues.

There's a reason I'm telling you all this.

The Moral Of The Story

I got wise about EMFs back in 2002. Suddenly using a cell phone became very painful.

I cursed my sensitivity at the time, now I'm grateful for it. That's right I am GRATEFUL for it.

It opened my eyes to the EMF world we live in.

Most people haven't an inkling of the EMFs in their life. Why should they? The link between EMFs and disease is played down by our governments and there's much money to be made in the roll out of these technologies.

Even I, when I was at my most electrically sensitive, didn't fully appreciate the EMFs in my life until I had a meter that could help me pinpoint them and measure them.

Nick believes that detection of, and protection from, EMFs, should be as easily accessible as the devices that emit it. He also believes that through his company Sensory Perspective he has the knowledge and products to make that a reality.

New Low Cost EMF Detector

Sherlock New EMF DetectorHe's got a world class management team and a major new product in the pipeline, a low cost EMF detector (The Sherlock), brainchild of Chris Deering, ex CEO of Sony Europe.

What's outstanding about this new EMF detector, the Sherlock, is it's high sensitivity for a such a low price – it's due to sell at around £30 (sterling). Nothing currently on sale at this price offers anything like the sensitivity of the Sherlock.

It's also very easy to use. EMF exposure levels are indicated by colored LEDs. It's small size means you can carry it round in your pocket all the time.

This new product could revolutionize personal EMF protection.

On 1 September 2014 Sensory Perspective was the first EMF protection company to go to the public, through crowdfunding, to raise money to produce and commercialize this new EMF detector.

How Does Crowdfunding Work?

It allows ordinary people with limited financial means to support and promote a project they believe in.

For as little as £10 (about $16) you can:

– invest in a project you believe in

– buy a share of the company

– invest in an ethical business

(People from every country in the world can invest at Crowdcube except visitors from USA, Canada, or Japan.)

Nick explains in this video what he's trying to achieve:

Nick's project is important because a low cost EMF detector will bring us a step closer to making EMF protection affordable and accessible to everyone.

****UPDATE: Unfortunately the funding target for this EMF meter was not met. My recommendation for a good general purpose EMF meter is https://www.electricsense.com/10786/cornet-ed88t-emf-meter/

    This is a fantastic initiative. Unfortunately you have to live in the UK to invest.

  • Tricia said,

    So if people in the US are interested and want to invest in this, but can’t through crowdcube, what can we do?

  • Jon Draw said,

    It would be good to have these with Audio output so that as people walk through public places with high emfs, which is common, they would sound like ticking time-bombs! That may help awaken people to the sea of radiation in which they are living in, but unaware. It would surely arouse peoples’ curiosity to inquire what the sound is, and then open the conversation to educate others in that manner.
    From the numbers you mentioned above, 30 Pounds (Brit) would be about $48 US FRNs (debt dollars)… which sounds like an oxy-moron! What do the rest of you think of this idea? They should have rechargeable batteries to accommodate the audio output… perhaps even an emergency flashlight tossed in as a public service!! …Reminds me of a song…”Wake the Town and tell the People”, dah de dah,… dah dah de daaaaaaa……..

    I support it and I would buy it here in the U.S. if I could. I would also help to promote it and sell it here in New York. This is great news and a terrific product as we who suffer need to be proactive every step and turn we take. Recently in my mom’s new home, I become so off balance and felt terrible, she also said she didn’t feel right, dizzy and so forth. I couldn’t stay long enough to discover and point out all the trouble, but I certainly would buy her one of these tools to measure her home and get her to a safer point of comfort in her own home. Thanks and keep us apprised of how and where to buy and support the initiative. I also want to gather forces for a conference of all who suffer from this dreadful by manageable disorder.

  • Nancy Callewaert said,

    What will (The Sherlock) EMF Detector cost in U.S. dollars ? Is it basically the same as the Accousticom 2?
    If not, what would be the difference between the two ?

  • Nick Clough said,

    This is Nick from Sensory Perspective in London. Thank you Lloyd, and thank you all for these great comments. We are in this together, and I’m glad that our crowdfunding campaign has the added benefit of publicity – making more people aware of the EMR problem. Yes, it is a REAL pity that Crowdcube here can not yet accept investments from USA, Canada, or Japan, but our friends in those countries can at least spread the word. Please note: the rest of the world CAN invest in Sensory Perspective, and it’s a pretty straight-forward procedure (not too daunting, as the British would say).
    We fight on!

  • Lloyd Burrell said,

    Nick – thanks for clarifying on the investor question.
    Nancy – my understanding is that the Sherlock has the same sensitivity as the Acousticom 2, without the audio function. But I’ve not actually seen the meter…..perhaps Nick can confirm, also it would be useful to know it’s frequency range.

  • Nick Clough said,

    Nancy and Lloyd – Sherlock has 8 LED lights, displaying levels from 0.02 V/m to 5.0 V/m (1uW/m2 to 66000uW/m2). As there is no “safe” level, there will be no green lights, rather yellow, orange and red. The Frequency range is 200MHz to 8000 MHz (0.2GHz to 8GHz). No audio. It is a discreet, compact, personal quick-check detector.

  • Nancy said,

    Thank-you both for the description of the new Sherlock.
    Much appreciated, Nancy

  • Lynda said,

    Hi Guys….

    First, let me say that I thank you and applaud your commitment to making the world a safer place to live, in spite of all the roadblocks and technology working against us.
    I am in the process of researching similar meters but obviously would like to purchase the best one available…which by all accounts would be the “Sherlock.”
    I understand the importance of educating the public to EMF’s and spreading the word of their very real danger…what I don’t get is the push to advertise the “Sherlock” if we can’t get it.
    Is this a Canadian government refusal to co-operate in allowing it into the country or some other factor? Are we ever going to be able to contribute to the crowfund campaign and/or be able to purchase your products?
