Will it check for moisture in drywall that might cause mold. How about carpeting?

Asked by: Bunny
Drywall does have a high water content normally, it will tell you if your moisture level is above what is correct. It should read carpet and pad also...

RYOBI PHONE WORKS Moisture Meter is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 155.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a plug and play Don't make my mistake thinking you can pick this up on the way to the job and be ready to go. I am not electronic savvy and don't think I should have to be to use this type of tool but by the time I got that ridiculous packaging open, downloaded the app, registered (necessary), figured out why my phone wouldn't find the hardware, figured out what phone settings I needed to change and how to change them, then learned how to use the tool, all this while managing calls and whatnot, I was well into the next day and no longer needed the meter. Not only is this an electronic gadget subject to programing and a properly working phone and operator it is a two handed tool, well maybe three depending on the situation, and when not in use there is a freaking long phone cable that will get tangled with whatever else is in the storage bag. If you have time to mess around and electronics are second nature this may be a fine tool but if you want to get it done and move on, not so much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't waste your money! I purchased the Stud sensor, Moisture Meter, and laser range finder, of Ryobi phone worksbelieving that it was going to improve my efficiency and quality of objective quality evidence for my home inspection company. Unfortunately, I have found that the quality and accuracy of all of the centers are no better than the cheapest off-the-shelf products.additionally, there are almost no instructions that come with the products, or that can be found at the manufacturers website. I called customer support with technical questions regarding ranges and other data, but nobody could answer my questions or had any more detailed instructions available. The tech support representative told me that they would call me back when A more knowledgeable representative was available, but I never received a call back. I am an expert with complicated instrumentation required for the construction industry, so I know what I'm talking about, and I recommend saving your money for a professional grade product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why do they need ny personal data?!?! Well when trying to install the app be sure to notice you HAVE to set up an account with your contact info. Then the app needs permission for access to basically all your personal info on your phone from location, camera, etc. All I want to do is measure moisture in firewood and I have ZERO interest in sharing with Ryobi where I do that, when I do that or even any pictures of Kate Upton I may have on my phone :) ! This better not be where all this type of tech is going..........returning this product and I hope good ole Home Depot can put some pressure on Ryobi to give us stand alone products without wanting all our data ....unless of course this data is being shared with Home Depot for peddling this garbage! And seeing that Home Depot does not carry the basic moisture measurer (you remember them? Don't need am App to use!) in store anymore guess I'll go online and buy it elsewhere. Oh well....is this going to happen to my next Frig purchase???

I purchased this a couple months ago to test firewood to ensure it was properly seasoned before burning in our fireplace. Home Depot was the only store that carried a moisture meter in their on-hand inventory, so I purchased this. Unfortunately this product never worked on my phone. I tried multiple different options and it still wouldn't work. It kept show me the "red" battery indicating no battery present. I contacted Ryobi's customer service and they told me it won't operate on my phone (and I have both Android and a iPhone). After customer service sent me the email back, I asked what to do with the meter since I was out of $30. I never once heard a response back. In addition, Home Depot didn't take the meter back either, even it was defective. I was highly disappointed at both Ryobi and Home Depot for how this was handled. And I'll be the first to say that I have a ton of Ryobi products, and have recommended them numerous times to folks. This was a terrible purchase, and bad experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept, but doesn't work with all phones Since I do a lot of woodwork where it's important to make sure your wood is dry and acclimatized, I thought it was time to finally get myself a moisture meter, rather than just storing wood on-site for several weeks and hoping that was sufficient. I was optimistic about the new Phone Works tools and got this moisture meter as a test to see whether it was worth getting the more expensive (and more useful) parts of the set. Unfortunately, I could not get my Android C811 to recognize the moisture meter at all. After a lot of time spent trying to get it to work and searching online for solutions, I concluded that many reviewers were probably right: this platform works with i-phones and one or two android models. My phone, the C811, is cold-weather tolerant, waterproof, and ruggedized - which is exactly the type of phone that people doing construction work tend to have - so I hope Ryobi expands the compatibility to other phones. For now I'm keeping this to see if they can update the app rather than require getting a whole new tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a valuable tool to link with your smartphone!! Ryobi has nailed it with the "phone works" product line, starting with the moisture meter. I am a general contractor, and we install wood flooring all the time. I've used a variety of moisture meters in the past, but none of them compare to the unique features this meter offers. The two things that I like best are: 1) super easy start up, just download the app, and register the meters serial number 2) the fact that you can take a picture of the surface you are getting a reading on. This is extremely helpful for me in my work. It allows me to have proof that the hardwoods and the subfloor were within 3-4% of each other at the time of installation. This was the selling factor for me. A few of the other "phone works" tools that are really valuable are laser distance measurer, and infrared thermometer. I have all three and the carrying case to house them all. High quality tools for a low price that allow me to stay current with the ever-changing housing market.
