Step 4 – Implement a pilot project

We recommend checking the functionality of the remote meter-reading technology in a pilot project. There is no strict limit to the number of water meters that can be included in the pilot project, but we recommend using at least 20. It is important to select water meters with pulse or induction outputs. The pilot area should be chosen based on the outputs of step 2 – Validation of IoT network availability. The transmitters can be installed by the client’s trained staff or by IoT.water staff. In addition to verification of functionality, a pilot project normally aims to verify options for how to integrate the data into existing information systems (IS). A pilot project typically lasts 3-6 months. Based on the results of the pilot project the client will have all the information needed to make a decision on deploying the remote meter-reading system.
