What is AMR?

Automatic Meter Reading, or “AMR” technology has been used to monitor utility use for more than 15 years.  It is the best method to quickly and accurately gauge consumption. AMR equipment allows remote monitoring of water, gas, and electric meters by transmitting meter readings to a host computer. It saves time, increases efficiency, and eliminates the need for estimated reads.

How AMR Works

First, an AMR device is installed along with the meter. Readings from the AMR device are transmitted to a reading unit which could be a walk-by, drive-by, or fixed network system. The AMR receiver retrieves these reads to generate customer energy bills. The reads are also published to web reports on the manufacturer's web interface software and can easily be accessed online via your login and username.

Meter readings are transmitted in a variety of ways, including:

  • "Wireless" RF radio signals
  • Touch Pads
  • Internet
  • Power Line Carriers (PLC)
  • Telephone Lines
  • Cellular Modems
  • Cable Lines

Benefits of AMR Technology

Easy to Implement: AMR technology is easy to implement and is extremely dependable. An AMR system can be installed with new meters or adapted to existing meters.

Immediate Savings: You will be able to see the difference remote monitoring makes when you look at your first utility bill under an AMR system. Instead of relying on readings that approximate actual energy consumption, you will save money by enjoying more accurate reads.

AMR as Watchdog Service: Early detection of suspicious spikes in energy use means you have more time to find and stop the problem. AMR technology also improves that chance of detecting theft of service or current diversion.

Fewer Complaints: Accurate meter readings may reduce customer complaints. Your customers will be more likely to trust that their utility bills are based on accurate reads rather than estimated reads.
