How does the intelligent moisture meter work?


The sensor measures wood moisture content, temperature and humidity. It is installed in no time with 2 screws and can last for 10 years without a power supply. It transmits data wirelessly with LoRaWAN.

The collected data is summarised together with local weather on our open platform where you can download reports and see detailed sensor information.

Get an overview of your building health in no time!

You can set own customised alarms or use Woodsense predefined intelligent alarms to ensure you get notified when critical moisture conditions occur.

No need to waste time looking at graphs, Woodsense will alert you!

Easy installation in few steps

Install sensor

Install with 2 isolated screws. Screw length can be customised.


Register in less than 1 minute with our 3 step process on your phone.

Plug gateway

The gateway comes with a sim card, so just plug it in a socket.

Get Insights!

See data come alive in the dashboard and start receiving alarms.

Compare with local weather data

Compare your sensor measurements with weather data from local weather stations. Here you see an example of the measured humidity and temperature from a sensor compared with the local outside temperature.

Comparing sensor measurements with local weather data often provides valuable insights and explanations to why measurement patterns change and what caused it.

Get future projections

Use future projections to get an idea of how the measurements will develop in the near-future.

Projections can be used to

  • estimate when the wood reaches dry values
  • estimate when the humidity of the air is dry enough
  • know if the coming days are suitable for closing the construction

Compare multiple sensors

Compare measurements across multiple sensors to easily pinpoint sensors acting different from the rest.

This is a great way to quickly determine if something is wrong at any of the sensor locations, or simply make sure everything looks fine.

Comparison can be done for all measured parameters.

Access the raw data

You have access to all of your data. This includes raw values like temperature, humidity, moisture, electrical resistance, signal strength parameters and gateway details.

Access your raw measurements data on the Woodsense platform.

Raw measurements available in the platform.

Export to CSV or Excel

Download your raw data to a .csv or Excel file and import it to your preferred data manipulation tool. The exported data includes both the sensor measurements (including raw electrical resistance) and the local weather data.

Export your raw data to csv or Excel files on the Woodsense platform.

Example of exported raw measurements imported to a Google Sheet (Excel).

Access through OpenAPI

All of your measurements and sensor information can be extracted using our open REST API. Our API is defined using the OpenAPI specification and can be found at

What is the difference between a wood moisture meter and a sensor?

Expand arrow button

A wood moisture meter is a manual tool used for performing few wood moisture measurements by hand at one point in time, whereas a sensor is a device that performs automatic wood moisture measurements continuously and saves them in the cloud making all measurements available for the given period of time.

What is the difference between a capacitive measurement and resistance measurement?

Expand arrow button

A capacitive measurement measures the wood moisture indirectly by using a magnetic field between two plates, whereas a wood moisture measured using a resistance measurement converts the electrical resistance between two electrodes in the wood into a wood moisture. One of the advantages of the resistance measurement is that you can determine the wood moisture at a certain depth of the wood, by using insulated screws as electrodes.

What is the difference between a moisture logger and a sensor?

Expand arrow button

A moisture logger saves each moisture measurement locally on the logger often using an SD card or similar which later can be retrieved manually and transferred to a computer for analysis etc. The sensor will transfer the measurement to the cloud immediately making each measurement available in real-time and removes any storage limitations e.g. an SD card could have.

Can I get a better insurance using sensors?

Expand arrow button

Many insurance companies and brokers are listing using sensors like ours as an "extraordinary effort" which will put the project in a lower risk class leading to cheaper insurances.

Can the data be integrated into other systems?

Expand arrow button

Yes we have an Open API that can be found at

The reports from Woodsense have a great overview to show the building owner to ensure that the construction dries out as planned and that we react when critical conditions happen.
