identify issues in operation processes, detect water leakages, acquire battery status information from water meters, detect illegal connection or unauthorized consumption
Automated meter reading provides continuous data flow from a smart water meter to backend systems. Data reading is performed through Public or Private LoRaWAN networks and Telecommunication networks (NB-IoT).
The fixed meter reading using LoRaWAN or NB-IoT networks allows the remote meter management, bringing the following advantages:
The LoRaWAN and NB-IoT networks are meant to support endless use cases ranging from smart metering, smart water management, water efficiency, and water balances.
With Drive-by technology your maintenance team can easily collect smart meter data remotely, using a vehicle installed meter reading device.
The technology can read and collect data in suburban areas and densely populated cities.
Meter reading can be carried out in two ways:
More than one type of water meters can be read simultaneously on the reading route.
Drive-by solutions also support the efficient and reliable acquisition of data from the meters mounted in underground pits or inaccessible for manual reading
To capture the data from water meters that are inaccessible to vehicles, we use the Walk-by remote meter reading system.
Handheld portable receivers help to collect the meter data, eliminating the need for manual readings and physical inspection of water meters, improving operation efficiency, cutting time the maintenance team spends in the field and making processes cost-effective.
