Control consumption and reduce wastage with smart utility management
The utility sector is facing numerous challenges:
- Pressure from authorities to improve sustainability
- An increase in consumer demand
- Increasingly densified distribution networks in urban areas
- The need to conserve precious resources
- The wasted expense of non-revenue water
- Decarbonating and securing gas leaks
- Labour intensive processes
- 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.
Our state-of-the-art smart utility metering solutions are:
Get smart about energy consumption
By implementing a smart utilities system comprised of sensors, gateways and a private data network, utility and metering companies can collect and analyse data remotely to streamline operations.
- Monitor and manage energy usage
- Reduce costs and identify energy wastage
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Use personnel more efficiently
- Enable cost and operational efficiency for the utility and the smart city
- Use smart technology as a competitive differentiator
“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
- Migrate from manual meter reading to advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) for smart metering analytics
- Add IoT sensors for water leak detection and water flow monitoring
- Use IoT sensors for gas leak detection and remote monitoring of gas pressure
- Use connected smart meters to support new energy monitoring systems
- Utilities of all types can work jointly with smart city initiatives
Utility metering solutions
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.
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.
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.
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.
Commercial buildings can save on energy consumption and costs by automatically streamlining energy usage using our load-balancing hardware adapter.
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.
