Smart utilities to keep your business
safe and fully operational.

Control consumption and reduce wastage with smart utility management

The utility sector is facing numerous challenges:

  • Save time, money and resources Pressure from authorities to improve sustainability
  • Fast asset recovery An increase in consumer demand
  • Optimise asset lifecycles Increasingly densified distribution networks in urban areas
  • Maximise productivity The need to conserve precious resources
  • Minimise waste The wasted expense of non-revenue water
  • Minimise waste Decarbonating and securing gas leaks
  • Minimise waste Labour intensive processes
  • Minimise waste The need to become Digitally Transformed™

To become safer, more efficient, and environmentally friendly, utilities providers need to take the lead in deploying smart technologies that also enhance the experience of their customers.

How does it
work?

“Smart” meters can’t achieve their potential value without being reliably, robustly and cost-effectively connected. Utilities need cost-effective, robust, secure, easy-to-install wireless technology to support their digital transformation, and service the needs of their partners and customers in the long term.

Smarter Technologies' Orion, The Real-Time Data Network™, combines low-power radio with the Internet of Things to provide real-time utilities data. Orion is a low power, long-range digital data network that consists of a system of gateways and tags connected to your utilities assets. The system listens and monitors, allowing you to access real-time information on your utilities consumption and portfolio.

How Orion makes your utilities systems smarter

  • Save time, money and resources Migrate from manual meter reading to advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) for smart metering analytics
  • Fast asset recovery Add IoT sensors for water leak detection and water flow monitoring
  • Optimise asset lifecycles Use IoT sensors for gas leak detection and remote monitoring of gas pressure
  • Maximise productivity Use connected smart meters to support new energy monitoring systems
  • Minimise waste Utilities of all types can work jointly with smart city initiatives
Background

Real-time monitoring, affordable technology, and robust security come together in Orion.

Smart utilities reporting and monitoring

The first step in achieving a greater understanding of your utilities portfolio is extracting accurate, real-time consumption data. Without knowing the economic implications and impact that utility management has within your company, you're likely to miss the opportunity to monitor and ultimately reduce consumption expenses. Increasing the visibility of utility consumption will provide a clear understanding of where expenditure on resources is allocated, allowing you to accurately identify opportunities to save.

Smart Meters

Our Orion-based automatic meter readers are suitable for retrofitting to existing meters to provide better utilities management on site. Reduce energy costs with wireless, battery-powered smart meters with automated peak usage warnings and peak power output management.

Sub Metering Solutions

Our submetering systems provide real-time information consumption data on any given machine or site, allowing you to gain precise utilities usage information on an individual basis.


Power supply management

With our real-time power management notifications, you can be alerted in the case of power outage or power surges. Orion tags both send and receive commands in real time, which enables the tags to start and stop electronic devices if and when required. This process can also be fully automated if required.

Electricity Load Balancing

Commercial buildings can save on energy consumption and costs by automatically streamlining energy usage using our load-balancing hardware adapter.

Peak Power Output

Our peak power systems regulate the machinery startup process and manage your company's peak power usage in real time, allowing you to gain complete control and visibility of your electricity and high usage machines.
