Domestic Water Monitor
Wireless Water Consumption Monitoring, which we are currently developing will have a transmitter unit which is attached to your water meter and measures the water flow through a sensing interface to the meter. It then transmits this information from the transmitter wirelessly to the display up to 60 metres (200 feet) line of sight to the water meter pit when the transmitter is fitted to the water meter and the antenna is positioned in the lid area on the antenna fixing bridge.
- The intention of this product is primarily as an educational device to aid the understanding of water usage in the home enabling the user to reduce water consumption / waste. There is no intention for the wireless water monitor to replace your accurate water meter.
Water Monitor Setup:Litres per householder, Litres per householder are a normalised number of litres of water used per person per day at home. This comes preset at a value of 160 litres per person This value can be adjusted by the householder to set their own target value per person.
- Number of persons living in the house The number of persons that live in the house is related to the Litres per householder in calculating the overall litres for the household
- Cost Per m3 of Water: The cost per m3 of water is the rate charged for each unit (cubic metre or 1000 litres) used.
- Leak Detect: When the â€œPossible Leak Detectedâ€Â? icon illuminates the monitor has identified that there is a continuous flow of water outside of normal use that can be attributed to a leak. The leak detect uses an algorithm over a pre set time period looking at the periods of no flow to determine a possible leak as well as the level of the possible leak. If the â€œPossible Leak Detectedâ€Â? icon illuminates the â€œLEAKâ€Â? icon will also illuminate.
