PROVO, UT, Mar. 23, 2011 -- Vivint™, the home automation company that bought Meter Solutions last December, will install an advanced community-wide water meter system for Sandy City, Utah. The company will install 24,000 meters over the next several years.

"We are delighted that Vivint has been entrusted with this important project," said Alex Dunn, COO. "This is a real victory for our new Smart Grid Solutions Division, and we are committed to making the new metering system an even greater win for Sandy and its residents."

Vivint is installing Sensus' Flexnet meters, which will use an Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) communication network to relay the meter data directly to computers at Sandy City's utility office.

The installation is expected to provide meter reading efficiencies and enhanced customer service for Sandy City, while reducing overhead costs.
