Compost Temperature Sensor

Senstick Probe KOU10

See pricing!
No more manual temperature checking

Automatic readings

The rate at which composting occurs depends on physical as well as chemical factors. The temperature of a compost pile is primarily a product of the metabolic heat being generated in the pile from microbial activity. Compost has to be monitored throughout the whole process, requiring the employment of specialized personnel. Temperatures above 65 °C, will burn valuable carbons and turn them into ‘invaluable ashes’.


Who is it for? Waste Management Site Managers, Compost Managers, Grain, and Soil/Mulch Managers.

  • Replaces manned personnel.
  • Monitors grain storage temperature.
  • Compost, grain and mulch temperature measurements.

Made in EU

Quality is the first focus of Senzemo. The sensors, aside from standing out by their design, are sourced and assembled in European Union, and produced using quality materials, which makes them much more reliable and precise.

They are built to last for a long time and if you don’t take into account the batteries, the sensors could last for decades. On Lorawan they can work up to 50km away from the gateway and offer easy assembling so that everyone, integrators, or end clients can have a quality experience with them.

  • Reliable.
  • Built to last.
  • For a long time.

Sensor in action

Compost has to be monitored throughout the whole process. The rate at which composting occurs depends on physical and chemical factors. Temperatures above 65 °C burn carbons and turn into ‘invaluable ashes’. Producing high-quality compost requires the employment of specialized personnel. While temperature readings seem simple, it takes a lot of time for a worker to constanty stuff the temperature probes into compost piles.

The composting procedure is divided into two main phases, the decomposition and maturation phases. During these two subphases, the material’s moisture must be kept between 50% and 60%. Moisture decrease below 50% slows down or even stops the degradation process since, in order for the nutrients to be consumed by micro-organisms, they must be in the solution. Moisture increase above 60% renders the process anaerobic and results in contamination of the procedure. The overall duration of the 1st phase varies, from 15 to 30 days.

How can I get the sensors?

Send us an inquiry 🙂

We ship our sensors all across the globe, so wherever you are, we’ll make sure it’s on your doorstep in no time.

Can they work outside?

Of course, our sensors are built for harsh environments with a rugged casing.

Are the sensors pre-configured?

Whatever is your preference: Factory pre-configured or individually using NFC.

Do the sensors come with the platform?

All the data is available on our Middleware platform. If you need something different, tell us.

How do I integrate Senzemo sensors to my platform?

Sensors can be configured with Senzemo App or easily integrated using Senzemo API.

Is there support in case of failure?

You can always count on us. We promise 24/7 support with a 3-hour response time.

Do your devices only work with LoRaWAN?

Currently yes, all our devices are set up to work on LoRaWAN.
