The Moasure App requires the following permissions:
In order to use your Moasure One, we request that you register first. To do this, simply select ‘measure using Moasure ONE’. You will then be prompted by the app to fill in your information.
We ask you to register your Moasure device to your account for a number of reasons:
Rest assured, we will NOT share your details with anyone else.
To get to the ‘Pairing’ section of the app, you must already have registered your device.
When pairing your Moasure ONE with the app, you will need to ensure that you have your Bluetooth enabled on your smartphone.
On the pairing page, you should see your Moasure ONE device pop up in the list of available devices. If this is not the case, please ensure that your Moasure ONE is awake. To do this, please double tap the Moasure logo on the front to wake it. Please note, if this is the first time you are using the Moasure ONE or if the battery has gone, you will need to attach it to a power source using the USB cable provided.
Once your device shows, simply select it from the list and continue to the next step.
If you are wanting to share your account so that a friend/colleague can register to use it, please follow the below steps:
The person who first registered the module must start the Moasure-app on their phone.
Then go to Settings -> Measure using -> Moasure-device
Please select the device and tap the info (i) button. The password is displayed in a text box on the next screen. If the box is empty, a new password can be generated by tapping the circular-arrow button.
The other user will be asked to enter the password when they try to pair the module on their phone/account.
To wake Moasure ONE, simply double tap on the Moasure logo and you will see the LED flash blue to signify the Moasure ONE is awake.

As Moasure ONE is the first motion measuring device of its kind, we have been sure to create numerous tutorial videos to help you get the best possible measuring results.
Our tutorials are set up in a way that you must work through them before you can measure. The tutorials have a few parts:
Please note: You cannot skip the videos – you simply have to watch them. The whole tutorial takes less than 2 minutes for the majority of Moasure users.
Once you complete two measurements successfully, the tutorial is automatically disabled for that measurement mode.
Our research shows us that watching the tutorial videos is the fastest way to getting good measurements. We encourage all users to watch the tutorial videos as they learn how to measure using Moasure ONE, as we want to make sure you have success with Moasure from the start.
Understanding the correct orientation of your Moasure One is incredibly important to ensure reliable measurement results.
You will notice that there is an LED in the only 'sharp' corner, on the top surface of the module. This corner on the back surface of the device is the reference point for your measurements*
Moasure measures its own movement as you move it from one point to another. Ensure you always try to place the bottom surface flat on the object, or wall, at the start and at the end of the measurement.
Make sure you hold the device still until the app tells you otherwise. Remember to align the sharp corner with the edge of the object your measuring, so when measuring an object, place the reference point at each end of the object. The “Object Point to Point’ tutorial shows how this works here >>
Be sure to not tilt, or rotate your Moasure ONE unnecessarily, as you move it as this can cause errors with your measurements. It’s also crucial to not bang it against the object you're measuring. Moasure ONE is tough, but measurement accuracy needs a soft touch.
*Note that ‘Object Edge to Edge mode’ uses the edge of the device as a reference rather than the reference point – see the tutorial for this mode here >>
Unlike most measuring tools, the measurement error grows with time, not with distance. This is very important to be aware of when measuring with Moasure.
When measuring with Moasure, it is key to move quickly as you measure, but also smoothly. For maximum accuracy, we recommend keeping your measurements to less than 4 seconds. To help you, there's a timer bar displayed when you're measuring, and the audible feedback helps you too. Keep the timer bar in the green or yellow zones.
For larger measurements, pause the measurement every 3-4 seconds, by placing your device very still against a solid object for a second, then continue the measurement. Pausing like this will maintain the same level of accuracy over very large measurements.
You can view a selection of pausing examples here >>
Time: your measurement movement is taking too long. Each movement MUST be completed in 3-4 seconds. The longer this takes, the faster the error grows. For larger measurements, pause the measurement every 3-4 seconds, by placing your device very still against a solid object for a second, then continue the measurement.
Rotation: during the movement, you are rotating your device just a little bit too much. Try to keep your Moasure ONE in the same orientation throughout the movement – except of course for the rotation needed for the measuring mode.
Unexpected movement: Moasure has detected unexpected movement. This could be that you have tilted your device in a way Moasure does not want you to. It could also mean that you are ending your measurement with a hard bang. Moasure ONE is tough, but measurement accuracy needs a soft touch. Please watch the tutorial videos carefully and move your device as shown.

Quick Start Guide
Moasure ONE captures individual measurements from within the Moasure app. These measurements can be saved (on your smartphone) and shared (via email).
Moasure 3D gives you further functionality as it allows you to capture the shape and dimensions of an object or space as a set of 3D coordinates and builds them as a .DXF or .CSV file, for subsequent import into a CAD program

To save a measurement, you simply need to click the save icon (image below) which is located next to the measurement within the measuring mode.
To then access these saved measurements, you simply need to click back into the save icon (image below).
DO move Moasure smoothly and quickly - the quicker the better, within reason.
DO place the device flat with its bottom on the object.
DO keep each measurement step to less than 3-4 seconds keep the timer bar in the green or yellow zones.
DO place it softly against the object you're measuring.
DO watch the tutorial videos - they will help so please be patient with them. You can view them here >>
DO read the measurement tips that pop-up. Moasure checks how you're moving your device and will tell you how you can increase the accuracy of your measurements.
DO study the animations - they'll provide further guidance on the correct motion and orientation.
DON'T tilt it, or rotate it unnecessarily, as you move it.
DON'T bang it against the object you're measuring. Moasure ONE is tough, but measurement accuracy needs a soft touch.
DON'T let the timer bar reach the red section before 'pausing' your measurement.
Moasure measures its own movement as you move it from one point to another.
As you touch down from one point to another, Moasure plots each position and calculates all the relevant measurements at the same time. So, if you take a straight-line measurement from one wall to another, Moasure will calculate the A to B measurement, but it will also be able to calculate the difference in height, level or angle between the two points.

Moasure ONE's accuracy depends on which measuring mode you are using and the duration of the measurement.
When measuring length, accuracy is typically better than 0.5%*.
When measuring angles and slopes, accuracy is typically better than 0.5 degree*.
*for measurements where each step is up to 4 seconds in duration.
The Moasure one has taken the task out of the task so to speak..where we had to measure each shape of the project and then calculate the are and volume we now do that in one east step..no need to pull our hair out anymore racking our brain to make certain we have captured every nook and cranny..the Moasure One has already started to pay for itself as no more over ordering of material saving us $ on the project and most of our sites are limited for storage room so it minimises the space we need to store materials..we highly recommend purchasing the Moasure One and extension handle as this makes the product user friendly and reduces the need to bend all the time..
This device is a game changer! In the field, potential clients are very impressed when they see you collecting measurements with Moasure. The file saving structure with the mobile app is a huge plus!
When you show up to the clients house with the Moasure device and use Moasure technology to take ur measurements for your quote, u give the customer another reason to be confident in choosing you for that job, you look professional.
We are very happy with the equipment. Very simple to setup and use, we were up in running in less than 30 minutes which 20 minutes was the video. Would highly recommend!
We bought 3 for our sales team
Since my purchase, my lawn measurements have been much faster and easier with the Moasure One. I see alot of negative remarks about the device, but I can sum those up to inexperienced users. With a little trial and error to get used to the device, I found the accuracy to be spot on. I measured many square shapes with a measuring wheel and the Moasure One to compare accuracy. Knowing the accuracy was there, it has helped me with many odd shaped, almost impossible to measure lawns. Potential customers always comment on the device, and in many cases, I land the jobs due to their level of comfort with the process the Moasure One uses to calculate the square footage of their property. I highly recommend the Moasure One to anyone who needs to measure properties for any reason.
In just a few short months of having the Moasure it has saved us countless dollars in unnecessary concrete yardage! Being more precise with our measurements has cut down the amount of concrete that just gets thrown away by almost two yards per pour. It's worth every penny!
Using the Moasure device has really simplified tracking quantities for our construction projects. We really love that you are able to save quantities and organize them into separate folders. There are so many other features we have yet to discover but we are overall happy with our purchase! Thank you
This device is excellent for accurate measuring of just about anything. When proper care is taken, you can measure rooms, wall, decks, garden beds, even a kidney-shaped pool with amazing accuracy. 2 thumbs up for Moasure.
Working for commercial landscape company we work in large volumes and plans are always changing on the fly - The moasure takes all the guess work out and helps to eliminate the need to get rid of excess materials or turf at the end of a job. It paid for itself in the 1st use!
This product has solved many issues when measuring in industrial environments. It gets the curves even when the curve is uneven. Wish we had this year's ago
At first I was a little apprehensive about the pricing, but once I began to use it, it was like a kid with a new puppy….not giving it back!! It’s saved me numerous hours and has helped me get more accurate measurements. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
While the product and measuring stick was frustrating to learn, especially measuring in lawn areas, once I got the hang of it it was very accurate. I use it for developing landscape water budgets, and it’s much more accurate than google earth for odd areas
The Moasure is so cool. Its sleek design and simple approach makes it a joy to use and boy does it work great. One thing I really love is I can email my layout or print it for reference or for clients. The company responds to questions and seems to be more than willing to listen and update the product as needed. Outstanding design, Outstanding product.
We have been a user of Moasure with Arcsite integration for editing and to scale drawings of our clients concrete decking and pools. This tool has been very effective at saving us time and money with materials being more accurately ordered because of material waist reduction/ over ordering . Also, we typically give our estimates on site which impresses our clients. I personally have had multiple jobs authorize the estimate on site because of the Moasure measurement tool. It shows a higher level of professionalism and that we know what we are doing. Thanks Moasure.
