  • Water distribution metering is a very complex system. It takes lot of time to get the meter reading of every household and then generate billing based on consumption.
  • Tracking peak water load and managing the supply 24 hours manually is tedious task
  • Need for smart solution for managing the workload.
  • Unable to review the usage statistics and analyze the meter data
  • Improper calculation of the data


  • We analyzed the metering system with client on-site team, they provided us with all required inputs. After discussions with county, Axioma smart water meters were procured and implemented by county.
  • We structured the data required for monitoring, payloads were defined.
  • Water meter data was gathered using IoT Chirpstack Network server.
  • Water flow was monitored by IoT server, we used Thingsboad Open IoT Platform.
  • Alerts were defined for high and low level of consumption.
  • Consumer Water flow reading was captured every two hours and main distribution pipeline water flow was measured every two hours.
  • Alerts were generated for un-usual consumption in any line and alerts were sent to respective consumer on mobile.
