Meet PAT and their sister company Meeta Co (www.meeta.co) have developed world first remote monitoring technology and software. This technology is now available to the Meet PAT fleet of products worldwide.
LoRaWAN is an open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT connectivity.
LoRaWAN™ is a Low Power Wide Area Network designed to connect low-cost, battery operated sensors over long distances. Key benefit in using LoRa network over 3/4G equivalent is that devices can have very long battery life and gateway/network costs are relatively cheap. Devices can be in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost prohibitive to connect. Worldwide, more than 80 major carriers have
deployed LoRaWAN networks and 500+ key technology companies have deployed more than 50 million sensors worldwide.
LoRaWAN operates in the unlicensed band and supports indoor and outdoor applications. Like cellular, LoRaWAN technology is highly secure from end devices to the application server. Currently, there is 70,000+ LoRaWAN-based gateways deployed worldwide by 2019 and expected to reach 200,000 by 2020.
Meet PAT metered units and monitoring system include:
Monitoring powered by Meeta Company
Online reporting of units.
The system had the ability to detect and monitor:
Irregular usage (high/low usage) which may require investigation.
Lack of use or no usage
Leak detection – fault reporting notifications
Filter replacement scheduling
Cleaning scheduling – including the ability to arrange cleaning around usage.
System had Bluetooth functionality which includes the ability to do over the air software updates and data collection.
