Printed humidity and temperature sensors enable cost efficient way to perform environmental parameter monitoring in various application scenarios. For example in buildings, excess moisture, wrong temperature or bad ventilation may cause constructional hazards or more importantly decrease to the quality of the indoor air leading to health related issues. Printed electronics offers a possibility and a tremendous advantage over traditional sensor technologies by enabling the fast and mass product way to fabricate cheap and thin sensors. These affordable sensors can be embedded into the building structures for monitoring purposes for their entire life cycle. Moreover by the utilization of remote reading techniques sensors and their responses can be monitored for example through wall or floor structures, which enables non-invasive way to perform environmental parameter logging in locations where direct contact is not possible or otherwise feasible.
