Why Use a Wireless Water Meter System?

A wireless water meter system helps you in a variety of ways:

  • Lower operating expenses
  • Faster asset management
  • Faster data acquisition
  • Improve customer engagement and transparency
Lower Operating Expenses

A wireless water meter system can be cheaper and faster to install than traditional wired solutions. A standard wireless water meter system’s commissioning time can be 95% faster and 100% accurate compared to a typical pulse-based meter system.

Faster Asset Management

Learn where the problems occur in your system faster. A wireless water meter system can identify leaks and faults as they occur, alerting you real-time via email, text, or other form of notification.

Faster Data Acquisition

Paired with a robust data analytics platform, like MeterConnex, a wireless water meter system can quickly sort and analyze your metering data. This will allow you to make informed choices to reduce consumption patterns.

Improve Customer Engagement and Transparency

Give customers the ability to take steps towards conservation. By being transparent about why they have to pay a certain amount, customers can make habit changes to realize lower utility costs.
