Based on previous projects, we continue to develop an intelligent system of remote reading of water meters in cooperation with Severomoravské vodovody a kanalizace Ostrava (SmVaK Ostrava). The goal is to find a reliable and cost-effective solution for both the water supplier and the end customer.
Currently, we have launched pilot projects using the latest transmission technology, the so-called NB IoT (NarrowBand Internet of Things). It is a special narrowband network designed exclusively for data transmission. It features efficient data transfer with minimal battery consumption in the device, significantly reducing the cost of the entire transfer. The advantage is also the availability of the signal in the Czech Republic and its reach even in hard-to-reach places. All terminal devices can be remotely controlled and configured.
The projects are focused on:
In case of non-standard condition at the supply point, information about non-standard consumption is sent on-line, such as:
We cooperate with renowned foreign manufacturers of compact water meters as well as with Czech technology suppliers.
Since 2020 is the premise of using this intelligent water meter reading system for selected customers and other commercial applications.
