  • Save up to 90 percent over conventional data logging systems 


  • Detect hidden leaks in your network that each year could be costing big bucks – and wasting millions of gallons of treated water 
  • Manage flows in your network 
  • Effectively monitor and manage your system’s water pressure
  • Investigate water lines to predict pipe failure 


  • Assess aging infrastructure
  • Monitor inflow and infiltration
  • Stop unnecessary treatment of rainwater and stormwater
  • Continually monitor your system to prevent overflows

Smart Lighting

  • Implement smart lighting solutions that will provide network control of your legacy and/or LED streetlights
  • Increase economic development, public safety and energy efficiency through real-time lighting control 
  • Immediately identify outages and day burners 
  • Reduce maintenance time and associated costs through remote identification of problems and GPS location of luminaire
  • Access actual electricity consumption and voltage data from on-board metrology within the photocell

Smart Electric Metering 

  • Access more data through advanced analytics
  • Improve operational efficiencies and restore power faster during outages
  • Communicate over a secure, dedicated network
  • Enable specific channels on a network using licensed FCC spectrum to handle critical and non-critical communications
