Hardware And Software Together. Choose the hardware and
software solutions that fit your particular property and obtain
the exact level of service and support you need at the most competitive
price in the industry.
How It Works. In a typical installation, a transmitting
device attached to the utility meter sends the measurement of usage
electronically to a data collection device that forwards the information
to the billing company. No need for a person to look at the meter.
This can occur once a month, once a day or at any interval, all
without involving human labor or access to the property.
Do Not Replace Existing Meters. In many cases, older water
meters need not be replaced. The BluTower register head with integrated
transponder can be retrofitted to existing meters giving them the
newest metering technology capable of electronic communication.

Inexpensive Data Collection. Until recently, collecting
and transmitting meter data electronically required expensive equipment.

Why You Want It: Upgrading to an automated submetering system
provides many benefits and savings not available when meters are
- Reliablity. The submetering process becomes more reliable.

and you will be paid on time.

services such as daily usage reports, leaks detection and other

to be billed using the same method used by the utility provider
including time-of-day or demand billing.
- Enhanced Security. Properties are more secure when there
is no need to provide access to meter readers.
