Supporting both wired and wireless M-Bus, READy can be used for remote reading of water meters. The system can be fitted to meet your needs in terms of data collection and frequency. Depending on your situation, the remote reading of your meters can take place in several ways.
You can read your meters on the go with READy mobile reading, called ‘driveby’, driving around in your district. You can also combine your mobile reading solution with small-scale data collection units placed at strategic locations in your area to enrich your regular readings. If you need daily or hourly values, you can establish a fixed network partly or fully covering your district with several data-collection units. Finally, you can also read your wired meters with READy.
A READy system can easily be adjusted to meet different needs and it can be expanded as your needs change. If you have chosen mobile meter reading, it is easy to upgrade and expand to a network – one area at a time or all areas in one go.
Explore the range of data collection options available for READy.
With READy mobile reading, you can easily read every meter in the district directly from your car. You get access to consumption data and any alarms or info codes.
By combining READy Mobile Reading with small scale data collection units, you can enrich your regular readings used for billing with more detailed information.
By installing fixed data collection units in your supply area, you can automatically read the consumption data and info codes from meters.
With READy, you can also read supported meters that are connected in a Wired M-Bus network where the meters are connected by cable.
The handling of your meters and meter data takes place in the PC program, READy Manager. READy Manager gives you easy access your data and includes a wide range of tools that give you an overview of and help you utilise your meter data so you can be proactive in your planning and daily work.
User-friendly interface and navigation
READy Manager has a simple user interface with a start screen and icon-based navigation that makes the program intuitive and easy to use. It is easy to integrate an existing customer database into the system. Consumption data can be exported to your billing system or an email address as needed, either manually or via automated commands.
To ensure a high data security, the data communication from each Kamstrup meter is encrypted with an individual AES 128-bit encryption. This means that the consumption data from the meter can only be decrypted by the associated READy Manager and by the mobile units authorised by that READy Manager.
Encryption keys are automatically loaded into READy Manager via a secure connection from My Kamstrup, which ensures that you receive the correct keys. New meters are automatically available in READy Manager. Furthermore, meter data can be stored safely at Kamstrup via our hosting solution. We have ISO 27001 certification within IT security.
