Automatic Meter Reading
Walk-by or drive-by remote reading used to gain meter reads without having to access the meter. By being able to remotely read the meter, a meter reader is able to reach hard locations from his truck as he drives past the meter. This saves time and manpower. Because it is an electronic solution, leak and tamper detection are possible. Overall the time and manpower savings mean better kept water systems and less water loss for the utility.
