How it works

Water Pigeon is an alternative solution that takes the traditional standards for monitoring water usage and brings it to utilities in a way that has never been done before.


We use today’s technology to capture photos of a meter face and run our optical meter reading software to create a numerical reading for the utility. These numerical readings are then sent to the utility using the cellular network to insure a secure and reliable data transfer. Once received, our dashboard gives the utility access to photo verification, live analytics, and XML file downloads.

Installation is easy, fast, and secure. In a matter of minutes you can convert an analog meter to a fully functioning smart meter with little to no effort.
