Concrete temperature and maturity monitoring has never been easier thanks to the fully wireless SmartRock sensor that can be embedded in concrete.
With free mobile app for iOS and Android platforms, almost all the users can connect to SmartRock on their phones!
In just 3 steps, SmartRock can be setup on any construction job site
1) Tag Sensor 2) Install 3) Pour Concrete
What is SmartRock?
Wireless Temperature Monitoring Sensor
SmartRock is a rugged and waterproof wireless sensor/logger for monitoring the temperature of concrete.
SmartRock™ can be installed in the formwork on the steel reinforcement. Right after pouring, SmartRock will monitor the temperature of concrete. Temperature measurements are recorded continuously. The results can be downloaded anytime using the SmartRock mobile app.
The continuous monitoring of concrete temperature can be used as a QC/QA method as well as maturity-based strength prediction. The field monitoring of real-time concrete strength can also help with optimizing the formwork removal time, application of load on the structure, and adjusting the curing temperature of concrete onsite.

An educational video on the concept, measurement, and application of concrete maturity method. Transcript Hello, My name is Sarah of Giatec Scientific and Today, I am going to discuss the “Maturity Method” for predicting the early age strength of concrete. So what is it about the “Maturity Method” that interests engineers, researchers, and the construction Read more about VIDEO: What is concrete maturity?[…]
Maturity Method: A Fast Approach for Estimating the Compressive Strength of Concrete in the Field A Global Challenge Early, rapid and accurate in-situ estimation of the compressive strength of concrete is one of the major challenges for the concrete industry. A practical solution for such challenges can prevent multi-million dollars of extra annual investment for Read more about Concrete Maturity | Concept and Measurement[…]
Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world as its ingredients, e.g. aggregate, water and cement, are readily available everywhere. The properties of hardened concrete are governed by various factors such as the mixture design and curing conditions. Concrete is often ordered for a project based on the required strength. This is Read more about Smart Sensors Save Project QC/QA Costs[…]
Concrete temperature monitoring is a basic measurement conducted in most projects in order to ensure proper curing of the concrete after placement. In some cases, the temperature history along with a calibration curve is used to calculate the real-time concrete strength based on the maturity concept. Wired temperature sensors and maturity meters have been used Read more about Wired vs. Wireless Temperature Sensors[…]
The SmartRock™ sensors were used to monitor the strength development in concrete in order to optimize the schedule of form-work stripping. The wireless sensor provided real-time information of hardening of concrete and helped the client avoid lengthy delays in obtaining the laboratory break test results.
Giatec SmartRock™ was installed in the Confederation Line project. The sensor was successfully utilized for temperature monitoring of mass concrete footings in the train stations. Three SmartRocks were installed at different depths to measure the temperature gradients between top, middle and bottom of the footings.
Giatec SmartRock™ was used in this high-rise concrete structure to monitor the strength development required for formwork stripping decisions. “It is very easy to work with the SmartRock™ sensor. It is simple to install. The mobile app makes it convenient to see the live strength value” Eric Gauthier, Site Supervisor, Bellai Construction.
