The P.K.E. Meter was a ghost detection tool invented by Abby Yates and Jillian Holtzmann as seen in the 2016 movie.


Primary CanonEdit

Developed by Abby and Jillian, the P.K.E. Meter was used during the first encounter with Gertrude Aldridge and the Electrocuted Ghost. The device indicates a ghost is near by, by spinning its pink glowing antennae. The device was also present on the Stonebrook Theatre case and when the Ghostbusters first interacted with Rowan when he was alive. The device was forgotten in The Mercado Hotel's basement. It is believed that there was only one made and in use by Abby.
