HUM-ID as an employer
Although founded 9 years ago, HUM-ID GmbH from Berlin still sees itself as a startup in terms of its structures. As an innovator in an industry that is not always forward-looking, agile processes and an employee-friendly environment are important success factors for us. Our personnel structure also reflects this: we combine the expertise of highly qualified employees, who contribute their many years of experience primarily in hardware development and application diagnostics, with the dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit of younger employees. The two central positions at our Berlin headquarters are held by women. In addition, young talent is a matter close to our hearts. Since our founding, female and male student trainees have been an important pillar in our day-to-day business.As an innovator in a not always forward-thinking industry, agile processes and a employee-friendly environment are important success factors for us.

HUM-ID as producer
The HUM-ID sensors are designed and manufactured in Germany. The necessary production steps are carried out exclusively by German specialist companies. In addition, we have been working successfully with the Stephanus Foundation in Neuruppin on production since 2016. The recognized workshop for disabled people in the Berlin area takes over a responsible part within the production chain. Quality assurance, programming and packaging are carried out at our headquarters in Berlin.Designed and manufactured in Germany.The necessary production steps are exclusively carried out by specialized German companies.

HUM-ID and sustainability
The passive system works without cables or batteries and is therefore particularly resource-saving both during installation (because no additional materials are wasted) and during operation, because no power supply is required. However, the most important environmental aspect of our system is already evident in our general product promise: Thanks to HUM-ID, damage can be detected at an early stage and unnecessary remedial measures can be prevented. Regular, sensor-based monitoring of moisture in roofs, walls and floors can thus minimize one of the biggest environmental problems facing the construction industry. Toxic gases can be produced during the disposal of insulation material and building materials, which is why its disposal additionally causes high costs. Restricting disposal to sections that actually require remediation reduces costs and thus improves the environmental balance. We work in a resource-efficient manner , both during installation (by avoiding the waste of additional materials) and during operation (by not requiring power supply). However, the most significant environmental aspect of our system is already evident in our overall product promise: thanks to HUM-ID, damages can be detected early on and unnecessary renovation measures can be prevented. By regularly and sensor-supported monitoring moisture in roofs, walls, and floors, one of the biggest environmental issues in the construction industry can be minimized. The disposal of insulation materials and building substances can generate toxic gases, which leads to additional high costs. Restricting the renovation to actually necessary sections reduces costs and improves the environmental impact.
New year, new app: In its fourth version, the free app for all iOS and Android devices has been thoroughly revised and supplemented with essential new features.

HUM-ID GmbH is expanding its product portfolio - and the areas of application for its award-winning wetness detection. In February, the KD1 wetness sensor will be presented to the general public at Dach+Holz in Stuttgart. Based on the proven functional principle of the WD1 flat roof sensors, the new sensor can be applied primarily in the floor area. In addition to underfloor heating systems, wet rooms, kitchen waterproofing or basement areas can also be a potential source of wetness damage. You can find an overview of this here. auf der Dach+Holz in Stuttgart der Nässesensor KD1 der breiten Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt. Aufbauend auf das bewährte Funktionsprinzip der Flachdach-Sensoren WD1, kann der neue Sensor vor allem im Bodenbereich angewandt werden. Neben Fußbodenheizungen können auch Nasszellen, Küchenabdichtungen oder Kellerbereiche eine mögliche Gefahrenquelle für Nässeschäden darstellen. Eine Übersicht dazu finden Sie hier.

The early years
Architect and inventor Gerd Müller (64) has worked for more than 25 years as an engineer and expert for a large international consulting firm in the construction and real estate industry. Problems with flat roofs have been with him ever since the building form became increasingly popular in industrial and residential construction. As early as the late 1990s, he therefore experimented with the possibilities of sensor technology to make moisture in the roof visible.
It was not until the triumphant advance of RFID technology at the end of the 00s that the breakthrough came. The wireless transmission of sensor information made his vision of a transparent roof tangible and, above all, feasible. In the months that followed in the lab and in the field, the task was to find the perfect chip with the perfect features. The fine-tuning was completed in the winter of 2011 after a number of test series.
