All events are shown on a map to make it easy for you to stay up to date on the current state of your distribution network and prioritise which events you need to handle. You can find irregularities earlier, handle them faster and reduce the consequential damage.
The events included can be alarms, notifications and info codes from supported smart meters, sensors and pumps. The events can also include alarms generated from Water Intelligence if the water loss in one of your districts rises above pre-defined limits.
Alarms & notifications
To ensure that you can take action as soon as a critical event, like a large burst, occurs, you can setup alarms and be notified via either email or text message. You decide how severely events should be rated and you can sort them after severity, type, time, active or historical and whether they have been acknowledged.
You can also set-up permanent surveillance of strategically important meters and create rules for how you want to be notified – ensuring that you only receive information about relevant incidents.
Tools to handle events
You can assign events to members of your team for further investigation and an “acknowledge” function ensures that all events are handled. Comments can be added to the different events to ensure that important information is shared, stored and easily accessible if needed again.
You can also "snooze" an event if your investigations show that the event is a false positive. This ensures that you can remove irrelevant events, avoid an information overload and get a clear overview of the events that needs your attention.
To make sure that you can take action as soon as a critical event, like a large burst, occurs in your distribution network, you can setup alarms and be notified via either email or text message. You decide how severely events should be rated and you can sort them after severity, type, time, active or historical and whether they have been acknowledged. You can even set-up a permanent surveillance of strategically important water meters and make different rules for how you want to be notified in case of different event types.
This ensures that you only receive information about relevant events and that you can be assured that your distribution network is being watched - even when you aren't looking.
Assens Water Utility is one of the test-customers who have participated in the development of our analytical tools for water utilities. They expect to be able to improve their customer service and to optimise their work to reduce their water loss.
“Our ability to fully exploit the data by pinpointing the water loss that isn’t related to a problem in a household saves us money and makes our work easier at the same time.” says Anne Lyndorff Hovmøller from Assens Water Utility.
Now, you can let every smart meter work for you to help locate leaks and create an unprecedented transparency in your distribution network. Acting like a fine-meshed network of noise loggers, the flowIQ® 2200 water meters listen to the distribution lines and service connections to detect leakages.
