Examining the Cost-Effectiveness and Scalability of IoT-based AMR Systems for Water Management
Traditional Automatic Water Meter Reading (AMR) and other smart water metering technologies are infamously cost-intensive to run, meaning many water utility companies struggle to demonstrate a clear business case for using them in their operations.
This paper outlines an innovative automatic meter reading and smart metering solution, leveraging new internet of things (IoT) communications infrastructure such as Sigfox, LoRa WAN and NB-IoT to create system-wide benefits within water networks and its management at a previously unattainable price point.
Instead of monitoring every single water meter, the new solution only a statistically significant number of meters within the water supply network. This reduces costs dramatically, while still capturing over 80% of the benefits of full observation.
