Is there some sort of ncv, parabolic gaussmeter, flir, or other device to aim at electrical boxes in far away and hard to physically access areas to see if electric is on?? Dont need exact voltage just if on or off. Would have cone in handy today.

Stand barefoot on a concrete pad. Soak feet with salt water. Take a copper wire long enough to reach box. Move wire around as much as possible to try to make contact with energized parts.

Hows that gonna work if conductors are inside? Im thinking more of a parabolic adjustable non contact tester?

Yes, we are testing it now.

How did you find out about it? Your in big trouble from the NSA if you've been tapping phones and reading ET threads.

btw: this secret sensor we are testing only costed about $1,000,000 each. HF will soon carry it for under a buck.
