Smarter Smart Metering? Meet Eaudometer®
Retrofit, consumer-engaging, behaviour-changing, smarter smart metering for the Water Utility industry
Smart Metering is all about data: specifically data frequency and data granularity.
But deploying a Smart Metering solution is hard:
State of the Art Smart Metering is incredibly expensive to implement
You need to change all your old meters for new, expensive Smart Meters
Build a LoRaWAN/ Sigfox network – huge investment, variable reliability
GPRS/4G/5G is expensive to run, won’t work underground
Then you start to hit real-world people problems:
You were so busy working out how to get data more often, you forgot to engage the customer.
So are you surprised your customers are uninterested in Smart Metering? Or even hostile?
Regulators tell you to reduce consumption, which you can’t do without consumer engagement.
No wonder Smart Metering has been so controversial
Your current meters still work perfectly well. After all they were well engineered with a long lifespan.
How does all this rip-out-and-replace fit in with your Environmental and Circular Economy Policies?
