Vivint™, one of the nation’s largest home automation companies, today announced it has been selected to install 1,050 transmitters on natural gas meters. The installations will begin immediately and are scheduled to be completed by the end of April.
Vivint will install Badger Meter (www.badgermeter.com) ORION SE gas transmitters, which, along with other hardware and software, will be part of a complete Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) system. The system incorporates both automatic meter reading (AMR) and advanced meter infrastructure (AMI) technologies, which enables utilities to remotely collect and monitor customer usage, identify potential leaks, and uncover possible tampering information from meters. The Badger Meter AMA system can significantly increase accuracy, operator safety and efficiency, and reduce personnel time and costs for the utility.
Vivint entered the smart grid market in December 2010 with the purchase of Meter Solutions, an established industry leader with more than 13 years of operational expertise. As a result, Vivint can now offer peak demand response, advanced energy management and analytic solutions, in addition to providing security, energy efficiency and home automation products and services to consumers. Vivint’s fully certified technicians enable the company’s Smart Grid Solutions division to provide best-in-class product and integration support that enhances convenience for users, while boosting energy efficiency.
