VEOLIA SMART – a pilot project to perform meter reading of water consumption online
Online remote readings of water meters for double-checking – the customer and the supplier see the water meter status online! Do you know another such system?
Remote meter readings do not only save consumption of consumers but also allow suppliers to detect leakages or unannounced consumptions at locations that are normally checked only once a year. Water meters are equipped with radio modules that perform the water meter readings and transmit the read data online unchanged over the Internet directly to the server, where they can be used by both consumers and suppliers.
The online system enables customers to easily control their water consumption. Through the Internet access (www.merenispotreby.pvk.cz), the customer is continually provided with information on historical and current water consumption. Water consumption is presented in both flow and volume units as well as in costs in CZK.
Remote meter readings provide comfortable solution to hidden water losses (leaks) within the internal water supply network and to cost allocation to individual consumers.
