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.

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.
Moasure One is easy to use, very accurate, and perfect for multiple applications. I would recommend this product to anyone!
Moasure has sped up our estimating process by delivering accurate estimates, a file to show the proposed area(s) and takeoffs for our project. I attach these with each estimate and I have had nothing but compliments and success with having this tool. Extremely happy with our decision for the first month of use!
I had our surveyor measure the same very odd shape of a driveway. We were within 2-3% of each other. I am very impressed.
The Moasure one has accelerated the process of obtaining measurements for my business. I am able to transfer the illustration to my personal computer to work on it more. It is easy to learn and the in app tutorials helps improve your calculations. I am very pleased with this product.
When I bring out my Moasure stick and start the measuring process, without exception, my clients, as well as a GC that might be there, are so impressed and intrigued. I'm finding that I have to take a few extra minutes to explain what all my Moasure can do, but my professional presentation is off the charts. So, you mix that along with the accuracy of the collected data, my plans contain dead on accuracy as well, I can add so much more that I couldn't collect before....Thanks Moasure! The confidence that I have in delivering plans that are accurate, so the guys in the field can trust the information that I provide and leaves less guessing on their part. This is a product that enhances my bag of tools that make me look really good... :)
I am really impressed by the capabilities of this little device, working as a civil engineer in heavy construction it has turned to be a realible tool to measure areas, volumes and changes in elevation, i totally recommend this device!
We were not 100% of the performance of the tool but this is insanely accurate and efficient. We reccomand this one to everyone.
It's super handy, really accurate! It's has made me look even more professional. And faster. Clients really like getting a copy of the measurements, what is really easy to give with a couple of clicks. Get this product if you want to go next level :D
All the people who have known the equipment have been delighted and are very interested in acquiring the equipment.
To make learning easier, a series of videos on YouTube with the different applications would be important.
We love this product so much. It saves so much time, this is our second one for our team!
This thing ahas taken our blacktop of business to the next level and has left our competitors in the dust. Also has cut out sales team by one employee.
Great product for fast and precise measurements. It is really helping me in my construction projects.
As a Contractor the Dose Asphalt, Concrete and Brick Paving Driveways , patios and Sidewalk and Parking Lot work this is my new go to tool for the estimating Take off
As anything takes time to learn how to use but it is really simpler than you think at first.
The abilities to take existing grades as you Measure get you the information you need to help with drainage issues so you can quickly come up with a plan with out Pulling out a laser level just to price out a Project
It the Measuring - Elevation take off tool I been always Looking for just did not know it until I got one
This has been one of the most reliable tool I ever had in my 22 years on the field, Thank you Moasure for this great helpful tool!
If you’re anything like our small business, Changing even the smallest procedures can be like moving a mountain. Everything from using a new kind of paper in the printer, all the way to purchasing a different make of tractor seem to involve pushback from at least a few people in the room. People are comfortable in their routine, even if there are proven ways to save time and effort. The reason I’m spending so much time on this portion of my “review” of Moasure, is because that was the hardest part. Even as the person making the decision to purchase the system, my stomach sank when I thought about having to “sell” my crews on the device. I KNEW that it would make their jobs 10 times easier, they just needed to see it in action. I figured I had nothing to lose with the money back guarantee, so I ordered the system. It sat in my office for several days before I even opened it. I’m telling you, I was afraid to open “Pandora’s Box”. I knew that as soon as I did, the moaning would start from people having to learn a “new” system. So, I let it sit for a few more days.. The next time my construction supervisor came into the office, I showed him the device attached to the “stick”. He was instantly skeptical, but he was curious enough to try it out. Together we downloaded the app onto my phone, and went outside to play around with it. I could tell when we started messing around with it, his skepticism was waning. He was eager to try different areas and elevation samples and then compare them with the traditional line levels, string, etc. that we had always used. Not only was he impressed with the accuracy, he was having fun! I was relieved since I knew that if HE was convinced, the rest would be easy. The system has been a game changer for us. I could have spent my review talking about the various features and how it works, but all of that information is readily available. For me, the hard part was always going to be getting buy-in from the guys who were actually going to use the system. And that turned out to be not hard at all. I can’t recommend Moasure enough.
