Badger Meter has created a smart water network -- Beacon Advanced Metering Analytics -- that detects leaks in a building in order to address wastage as quickly as possible. Implemented by the University of California, the system has already helped save several million of gallons through its near real-time data. Since the university is located in the Central Valley, one of the driest regions in California, this is a great advancement.
Environmental Leader writes, "Last month the city of Santa Fe chose Badger Meter’s Beacon smart water meter system for full installation across all of it water meter endpoints, including both residential and commercial customers." It uses a managed solution approach and two-way communications — plus fixed and cellular networks — to deliver a simple yet powerful end-to-end solution to the water waste problem.
