A water metering company contacted us looking for a system to measure the water consumption of domestic dwellings.
They were looking for a completely “hands-off” system, which would enable their customer service team to bill customers directly, without a requirement to manually collect meter readings from site.
The pilot project was a series of tall residential city blocks featuring approximately 900 apartments.
Working closely with Sensus UK, we were able to select a range of SensusRF water meters which would be suitable for the premises, and develop a proposed layout of meters, repeaters and SensusRF gateways which would result in effective remote reading capability.
Our in-house software team were able to host an SFTP server to collect meter readings from the SensusRF gateway on our client’s behalf over the 4G/LTE network. Using a bespoke software package, these readings were combined into a time-series database to allow clear trending and analysis of individual properties on a web-based platform.
Using this project as a case study, we are working with our client to develop a strategy to roll out the solution to further sites.
We will consult regularly with their Customer Service Team to enhance our software offering.
It is important to us that not only is the data available to access, but that it is also available in a format which is useful for the day-to-day running of your business.
