Why are more and more water companies choosing to use smart water meters?
In recent years, with the continuous development of technology, the development of smart water meters has attracted more and more attention, and the installation of smart water meters in many regions is progressing steadily. Why are more and more water companies choosing to eliminate the currently widely used mechanical water meters and choose the rapidly developing smart water meters?
With the introduction of Internet of Things technology, especially the emergence of NB-IoT, if you look closely at the water supply metering industry in recent years, you will find that communication technology is forcing the water meter to advance.
The construction of smart water network has quietly emerged and gradually evolved into an important support for the infrastructure of smart cities. At the same time, smart cities have brought huge investment opportunities to the construction of smart water networks. With the implementation of the national ladder water price, the smart water meter market will show a rapid growth trend, and the smart water meter and remote data acquisition system will show great advantages.
Although pure mechanical water meters are still the main phenotype in many second- and third-tier cities, and most of the new tap water users in cities use mechanical water meters, it is still difficult to update smart meters with existing mechanical water meters, but the relevant public policies for the construction and management of smart water networks If it can be effectively implemented and implemented, the construction of smart water network, including the promotion of smart water meters, will be further strengthened.
Compared with traditional mechanical water meters, smart water meters have the following advantages:
·From the perspective of meter reading: the smart meter solves the problems of difficulty in meter reading, disturbing people, and high labor costs;
·From the perspective of charging: smart water meters can not only provide users with more convenient and personalized payment methods, but also provide water companies with more accurate water consumption information, so that water companies can understand users' water habits, reduce water bill disputes, and provide better better service;
·From the management point of view: firstly, it can help the water company to ensure that the water volume is overcharged in time; secondly, it can help the water company to detect abnormal water use problems in time; thirdly, it can help the water company to control leakage and strengthen the construction of DMA; monitor the quality of marketing efforts;
