Wireless Water Metering

Ideal solution for retrofits and new builds. 

Encoded water submeters with wireless communications

QMC offers two solutions for hot and cold water integrated metering systems. Geared toward either commercial and residential versus multi-residential, these systems work by measuring individual tenant usage and wirelessly transmiting the meter serial number and exact meter register to 1 litre resolution. 

MeterConnex™ enables accurate billing, leak detection and meter status.

How it works

The smart meter data is pushed to the MeterConnex™ platform on a daily basis. A property manager can then use this data to make cost allocation reports, including a charger per kWh, meter fee (if applicable) and PST/GST if required. 

These reports can be generated for individual tenants, or for the entire property, and downloaded in Excel, .CSV or .PDF format.
