Mobile and on-site data analysis software suite provides greater visibility to smart water utilities

Apr 08 2021

The Beacon® technology of wireless data reading and data analysis in real time enables mobile and on-site reading of water consumption data by smartphone, tablet or notebook. The Beacon® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) of Badger Meter brings a new level of utility-optimizing information to light.

Beacon® AMA analytical software, combined with the proven Orion® AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) technology, not only provides an intuitive software for metering analytics but also a greater visibility and control over utility management.

The Orion® cellular endpoint is an innovative, two-way water endpoint that utilises existing cellular infrastructure to efficiently and securely deliver meter reading data to the utility via the reliable cellular network. In combination with a Badger Meter high resolution encoder, the ORION® cellular endpoint is compatible with all current Badger Meter E-Series® ultrasonic flow meters. The ultrasonic water meters can measure the exact volume of water used. The meters have no moving parts which ensures accuracy during the whole lifetime of the meters. Thanks to an internal battery, the meters can operate for 20 years.

With tools beyond meter reading and network management, Beacon® AMA software does not only offer targeted Advanced Metering Analytics, but also easy-to-use data tools for the utility, including a consumer engagement website and smartphone/tablet applications (apps), that provide water intelligence for utilities and their customers on a secure hosted solution.

The benefits of Beacon® AMA include faster leak detection, revenue management, water conservation clarity, and easier data collection for compliance reporting – but also customizable dashboards, the ability to set unique alert conditions, consumer engagement tools (website and smart phone/tablet app), automatic software upgrades, and integration into existing utility systems.

With the Beacon® AMA software suite, utility customers have the opportunity to access and view their water data to manage their own usage patterns and consumption rates. EyeOnWater® Online is a consumer engagement website that gives utility customers access to easy-to-understand consumption graphs of their water usage profiles.

In addition, the EyeOnWater® app allows the customers to view the data of EyeOnWater® Online on their smartphone or tablet. In this way alerts, notifications and water usage are conveniently and readily available anytime on mobile devices.
