Our remote water meter reading solution

What is the remote reading of water meters?

Drinking water networks are essential for a territory and its population. They are used to supply each subscriber with water and therefore represent major economic and societal stakes. These networks, generally designed many years ago, do not allow to have precise and immediate information on their state and it is thus difficult to identify leaks, to follow the quality of the network or to calculate efficiently its output.

The remote reading of water meters allows to know continuously the situation of the water network. Equipping your water meters with IoT sensors allows you to better control the yield, to precisely follow the consumption of your subscribers, to identify possible problems and to limit the waste linked to leaks.

Detecting anomalies with communicating water meters

With more than 20 years of experience in the field of remote water meter reading, Birdz offers solutions at the cutting edge of water operators’ needs. Our IoT sensors are compatible with all major meter brands and offer a wide choice of radio connectivity. Our solution is designed to offer the best digital water metering experience by adapting to the specificities of a territory.
It allows you, for example, to receive alarms when a meter presents an abnormal situation: presumed leak, risk of freezing, return of water, absence of consumption. The operational teams are then warned and can intervene quickly.


How does our remote water meter reading solution work?  

Birdz designs communicating water meter sensors that are compatible with several radio technologies to fit customer needs, including LoRaWan & Homerider. Meter data is collected and aggregated by our IoT platform. Relevant business indicators are calculated and transmitted to the operating teams or to the end customers in ready-to-use ergonomic applications. These data are also exported in the form of flows adapted to the IT architecture of our customers (API; FTP; data warehouse).
