Stop wasting money on manual onsite meter reading and data processing. Thanks to Vox’s smart metering solution, you can now monitor and optimise your infrastructure in real-time so you can detect leaks, automate billing, and remotely activate and deactivate services.
- Smart metering allows you to keep track of how much energy you’re using and collect data to report on usage – at your home and business
- Measure usage of certain utilities and other consumable resources like water, electricity and gas
- Record a variety of data points on consumption, including when a resource is being used, how much is being used and where it’s being directed.
Vox Smart Metering does away with manual on-site meter reading requirements and proactively identifies operational anomalies that may become expensive repair or replacement incidents unless addressed in time – i.e. geyser malfunctions. The collection of key data such as usage, peak utilisation outages and service delivery quality provides invaluable insight into tenant requirements.
Vox Smart Metering has alert delivery mechanisms and customisation for specific feature requirements and is compatible with a multitude of device types for water, electricity and gas and makes use of a unified web interface to allow for real time system management and reporting.
Don’t spend more time and money for manual onsite meter reading and data processing. Once switched on, meters can transmit data immediately without any pairing or configuration for years without a new battery. It’s now possible to monitor and optimize your infrastructure in real time so you can detect leaks, automate billing, and remotely activate and deactivate services.
