Take full advantage of the powerful features of Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN)
To build a smart water meter management solution, you first need to determine what data to collect. This will behave as the sensor you want to integrate. You may wish to integrate other sensors to allow you to monitor other parameters.And you also may wish to use data from these sensors to control the system. For example, you can use a valve actuator to cut off the water supply in an emergency.
The next problem is connectivity. Connecting the sensor to the Internet will allow you to remotely monitor and control the entire instrument, sensor and actuator system. There are multiple connectivity options in the Internet of Things. Nevertheless, Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) is the best choice for monitoring a single sensor in a large system that is optimized for cost and battery life.
Finally, you will need a well-designed mobile or web application that enables people to interact with the system in an intuitive and useful way. Whether you want to automatically bill or allow residents to check water usage via their mobile phones, the interface can provide powerful insights.
