Meter Monitoring Equipment

WaterWatch utilizes only the most reliable meter monitoring equipment to service your organization’s new construction or existing property.  Our preferred software allows us to supervise a variety of utility submetering network systems including wireless, hardwired, or manual.

WaterWatch can also schedule a meter reader to read your property’s submeters via manual or remote touch read in any location throughout the nation.

Wireless

Inovonics EchoStream®
EchoStream is the third-generation radio technology developed by Inovonics Wireless.   Over twenty years of experience applying frequency hopping, spread spectrum, and 900 MHz technology to network infrastructures has helped Inovonics to build superior radio technology. Each unit’s meter is integrated with a transmitter that sends a digitized meter read signal to a central receiver (DCC).  The receiver decodes the transmission and stores data until WaterWatch phones in for meter read retrieval.
