Water Submeters & Reading Systems for Apartment, Condo, and Mobile Home Communities
We supply water meters and AMR and AMI equipment for metering and reading your Apartment, Condo, Homeowner Association, or Manufactured Housing Community or Mobile Home Park. It is proven that people use less water when metered and they have to account and pay for what they use. If you are building in the cost of water to your lessees, renters, or homeowners, you may become noncompetitive with rental costs. Submetering can encourage conservation and help find leaks that cost you money. The following types of properties will benefit from submetering
- Apartment communities and properties
- Condominiums and Associations
- Mobile Home Parks
- Manufactured Housing Communities
- Homeowners Associations
- Campgrounds and Marinas
- Malls, Commercial Strip Centers, and Multi-tenant office buildings
What we offer:
Kamstrup Ultrasonic Water Meters - The Kamstrup meter is perfect for submetering. It is highly accurate, long life, has data logging capability, is highly tamper resistant, Easy to install in any orientation, light weight, compact, and has no lead content.
Kamstrup Radio AMR - Kamstrup offers two AMR meter reading systems. The Kamstrup READy cloud based reading system for Android smart phones and tablets, or the inexpensive and easy to use USB Reader. Both reading systems work with all Kamstrup RF meters, and upgrade from the USB to the Cloud based system is simple and seamless.
Kamstrup USB Reader - The USB reader is a small USB stick device. It contains software, memory, and an radio receiver. One or more meter routes are loaded on the stick and you simply walk by or drive by the meters to read them. The readings can be downloaded to the included PC software for export to a spreadsheet, external accounting software, or utility billing software. The Reader can hold up to 4000 meters and includes free software licensing for up to 800 meters. Increments between 800 and 4000 just require a small one time software license fee. There are no ongoing software or support fees required.
Kamstrup READy - Ready is a smart phone or tablet based reading system. A route is loaded into the Android app, and meter locations are overlaid on a Google map. As you drive, the small RF reader reads the meters, transfers the reads via Bluetooth to the smart phone. As read, the dots disappear until all meters are read. Any meters with info codes like leaks, tampers, or burst are shown as alerts. The meter reads are either immediately or in batch sent to the Kamstrup READy Secure Cloud Suite server and are ready for billing. With a live mobile internet connection, the office has access to readings within seconds of being collected.
