Benefits of AMR (Automatic Meter Reading)

The use of Advanced Metering systems involved AMR can provide benefits for Utilities, Retail providers, Landlords and Customers. The most noteworthy advantages for using these systems are increased efficiencies, outage detection, tamper notification and reduced labour cost as a result of automating reads compared to recording data via manual methods. The Elvaco range of devices can fit almost any application with options involving Wired and Wireless Solutions. Additionally, with the meter data being readily available, more flexible billing cycles would be available to clients instead of following a monthly or quarterly cycle of manually recording Meter readings. Utility installations are already seeing AMR systems implemented across the UK and Secondary systems are following suit.
