Unique system developed by experts from the University
Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings allowing humidity
and moisture monitoring directly in the structure
Moisture Guard prevents against prolonged
exposure of building structure
to increased moisture.
System is designed to:
Monitor wooden buildings and alert in case of moisture and humidity increase
Early warning in case of leakage or plumbing system failure
Detect water vapors condensation in inaccessible areas
Detect risk of mold creation and wood decay
Detects moisture caused by:
Heating system leakage
Water or waste pipe failure
Hidden water vapors condensation
Leakage into the building structure
Monitors moisture and humidity inside wooden structures
The system is especially designed for use in wooden buildings.
The control unit generates visual and/or acoustic alarms in case of increased moisture or critical humidity.
Moisture Guard allows long-term data storage and visualization via a web browser.
Reveals even small hidden leakages.
Approximately estimates a location of the leakage within the building.
Moisture Guard sensor
Measures relative air humidity in isolation materials or in cavities range 0–100 %RH, accuracy ±2 %RH
Measures temperature, accuracy ±0.3 °C
Measures water content directly in construction material
Wood: range 7–30 %, accuracy ±2 %
Ability to measure other materials (OSB, MDF, plasterboards, etc.)
Calibration of each sensor for particular measured material
Uses digital noise-resistant communication bus
Allows bus branching and chaining of sensors
Easy installation using two wood screws
Moisture Guard control unit
Uses a unique evaluation algorithm for increased moisture detection
Contains LCD display or signaling LED for warning/alarm
Indicates increased moisture or a serious problem
Includes USB, micro SD card or LAN for storing and presenting long-term data
Has an universal signaling relay for connecting to the other systems (e.g. home security system)
Contains digital communication bus for connecting the sensors
Online or offline monitoring
Overview of sensors
Both sensors are fully compatible with all control units.
Both sensors can be used on a single communication bus simultaneously.
Sensors support addressing.
