Wireless water consumption monitoring in residential apartments

B METERS UK were approached by one of the UK’s leading companies in meter billing to offer support on a large-scale residential complex.

The project involved installing a water meter in each residential apartment to monitor water consumption and record the data at a centralised point within the building, with the functionality to send automated emails at pre-set times.

The Problem

As the location wasn’t a new build, B METERS UK assisted in a site survey to check the viability of a wireless M-Bus setup with an RFM-C3 concentrator in the plant room. In order to perform the site survey, B METERS utilised a HYDRODIGIT DN20 wireless M-Bus water meter with the RFMRX2 wireless receiver and the BMETERING wireless M-Bus to check the strength of the wireless signal between the obstacles, the receiver and the wireless M-Bus water meter.

When it was established that the signal wouldn’t be an issue to any of the furthest points from the wireless M-Bus concentrator with an additional repeater, we then proceeded with the completion of the order.


The HYDRODIGIT water meter was selected over the GSD8 or the GMDM-I, as the meter can be installed in any orientation, even upside down, whilst maintaining the same MID R160 approval. The ability to mechanically install the meter without any prior configuration to the wireless M-Bus
on each meter also saved valuable time on site.
