For water utilities not using smart meters, waterworkslms.com has released its new iPhone and iPad applications, which auto-synchronize with its cloud platform. The applications will enable smaller water utilities to transition to cloud-based operations progressively. Meter readers will be able to use their iPhones to capture the readings on water meters, and quickly send readings straight into the billing platform, ready for invoicing. The new waterworkslms.com application will cut most of the old steps out of the traditional meter reading and billing process.
The Sensus ally™ water meter lets utilities remotely turn on water for a new account, turn it off in the event of a leak, or reduce the flow.

The ally meter delivers alarms to alert utilities to numerous conditions including empty pipes, reverse flow, leaks and tampering. Additionally, the high-performance meter contains sensors for monitoring pressure and temperature.
