The platform collects data and notifies for unusual events.
Knowing the gas consumption at any time allows small adjustments to temperature to keep the bills within budgets. And fast detection of leaks is key from security point of view.
The solution is based on ThingsLog data loggers with 2G, NB-IoT, or LoRaWAN network connectivity. The loggers can operate in low power mode and are the best option for monitoring gas flow meters in remote locations or difficult to access locations.
Each logger is able to read simultaneously reed switch pulses from the pulse outputs of up to two gas flow meters. The gas flow meters could be supplied from any manufacturer as long as they generate dry contact (reed switch) or S0 pulses. The data is transmitted to the ThingsLog platform at a configurable time interval.
Once the data is received by the platform, readings are analyzed, consumption profile is updated and notifications are generated. There are various kinds of notifications such as: – high consumption – high or low flow – no-zero consumption during certain timeframes
Gas consumption monitoring is a straight forward solution to help utilities or enterprises know and be able to plan their consumption as well as transparently allocate and bill the usage. The solution requires installation by professionals.
