The Meter Reader

Areas of use

The ZigBee-IR/LED meter serves as external ZigBee interface for
electronic meters. It collects meter readings from existing meters
already installed and sends data via ZigBee to the Wattle gateway.

This way, you can follow your energy consumption at your mobile phone.
The meter unit can be used with different kinds of meters;
power, water, gas, or heating.

The meter interface can be delivered with two probes:
an IR probe for two way communication with supported
meters and an LED probe for interfacing to meters with
blinking LED.

The optical probe is attached either by magnets or by Velcro.
Battery lifetime is over two years with updates every five seconds.
