What is Smart Metering?
Telemetry is the in situ collection of measurements or other data at remote points and their automatic transmission to receiving equipment (telecommunication) for monitoring. The word is derived from the Greek roots tele, “remote”, and metron, “measure”.
Key features and benefits include:
- Wireless, ultra-low, power consumption set up in minutes
- Real time measurements anywhere in the world with a cellular signal
- Accessible on your phone, tablet or computer
- Receive critical alerts via text message or email
- Gain valuable insights such as current levels, past usage history, and future trend projections.
- Avoid run outs and much more!

Telemetry is important in water management, including water quality and stream gauging functions. Major applications include AMR (automatic meter reading), groundwater monitoring, leak detection in distribution pipelines and equipment surveillance. Having data available in almost real time allows quick reactions to events in the field. Telemetry control allows engineers to intervene with assets such as pumps and by remotely switching pumps on or off depending on the circumstances. Watershed telemetry is an excellent strategy of how to implement a water management system.
Smart Gas Metering
With smart gas meters, gas companies can remotely monitor customers’ consumption to manage their operations and demand efficiently, and invoice customers accurately. Gas can be switched on and off with smart meters equipped with a remotely controlled valve. Smart gas meters rely on low-voltage battery power to extend operational life and avoid ignition hazards. Gas flow is measured with ultrasonic or electromagnetic technologies. Low-power, long-range wireless connectivity is key for efficient remote operation.
