How do Limpet readers work?

The Limpet reader attaches to your existing water meter. The device takes a photo of the meter reading and converts the image into accurate numerical readings (as displayed on your meter). The meter reading data is transmitted to a database, that stores your readings with corresponding dates, before being sent to your mobile device.

The devices offer the flexibility to set up in advance how often you would like to receive your water meter readings. Typically businesses set Limpet readers to provide monthly readings.


Meter readings allow you to monitor your business water usage which can help you to track consumption patterns.
