Earth quakes are technically Referred to as SEISMIC activity , so to record That activity , you need a Seismograph . If you wish you can call them Detectors Earth Quake , but only if you really wanted to!

A seismometer is the part of instrument which actually senses the earthquake and the movement detected by the seismometer is measured and recorded using a seismograph. A seismogram is the record, which is used to calculate the amplitude of the wave motion and the difference in travel time between the P and S waves which gives the distance to the source.

seis - shake
meter - measure

A seismograph plots the results of seismometer measurements.
