project “smart water”

Water meters have become smart products. The water meters can communicate consumption and other incidents, such as a leaking pipe, several times a day as needed using LoRaWANTM . In cooperation with G. Bernhardt’s Söhne GmbH, a proof of concept is taking place with more than 100 smart water meters connected via LoRaWANTM in the ecoplus Park Wiener Neudorf. The jury decided to honour our project because it addresses the huge challenge of water loss, is a showcase for LoRaWANTM technology and shows how IoT works.We would like to thank the Report Verlag and the jury of the eawards for the recognition of our project and our partners G.Bernhardt’s sons and ecoplus. Niederösterreichs Wirtschaftsgentur GmbH for the good cooperation. The project is ongoing and we are looking forward to announcing further developments in the field of intelligent water meters.
