Remote monitoring of drinking water systems

Remote monitoring of drinking water systems

Permanent remote monitoring of your drinking water system

With our retrofit solution for the remote monitoring of analogue drinking water systems, we provide you with an insight into the operating status of your non-intelligent systems to ensure legally compliant control operation. In this way, downtimes of the systems can be reduced or conditions causing legionella can be avoided. Maintenance can also be carried out faster and more efficiently with our solution.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Cross-manufacturer monitoring of drinking water systems
  • Cost-effective retrofit solution
  • Detection of deviations from defined temperature limits in real time (e.g. conditions favourable to legionella)
  • Reduction of consequential damage costs
  • Ensuring the legally compliant regular operation of the drinking water system

This is how the remote monitoring of the drinking water system works

In the retrofit process, we attach temperature sensors to critical points in the drinking water system, transfer the data to our building management platform with the help of our multifunctional m-gate and analyze it. The retrofit method is particularly suitable for older, analogue systems, regardless of the manufacturer or model.
The temperatures are monitored in real time and deviations from the defined limit values are automatically reported. In this case, you can immediately order the repair, avoid high follow-up costs and ensure the legally compliant regular operation of your drinking water system.

Testimonials

„As an integrated measurement and equipment service provider, we have found in metr a partner who offers us exactly the flexibility we need so that we do not have to commit ourselves today to the services and technologies of tomorrow. metr forms the basis for us to network all buildings with each other and to connect and efficiently use both the core business of submetering and all third-party applications.“

Robin Schwarz | Managing Director, ServiceHaus Mannheim GmbH

„Various IoT applications will find their way into the properties of housing companies, or are already doing so today: monitoring of power generation plants, measuring devices, lift monitoring, radio remote controlled or networked smoke detectors, sensor technology of various kinds. To avoid having to install a separate communication system for each application, it makes sense to use a universal communication structure such as that designed by metr. The development partnership with metr enables us to incorporate our own application requirements right from the development stage and make them available to other housing companies.“

„After successful completion of our first joint pilot project in the field of submetering, we are enthusiastic about the metr solution. With metr we have found a partner who, as a municipal utility, offers us the opportunity to prepare ourselves for new business models with an open mind for the future.”

Elmar Burgard | Managing Director, Stadtwerke Werdau GmbH

m-gate

The multi-functional m-gate makes it possible to collect the information necessary for remote monitoring of your drinking water system. It can receive data from any building sensor, regardless of the manufacturer and the technology used. On this page you can learn about its functionality and installation.

More about the Drinking Water Ordinance and AVBWasserV

As operators of drinking water systems in apartment buildings, housing associations are responsible for compliance with the General Ordinance on Water Supply and the Drinking Water Ordinance. These ordinances define, among other things, the minimum temperature for hot water, the maximum temperature for cold water and oblige the operators to avoid conditions that promote legionella.

On the website of the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection you will find the currently valid version of the Ordinance on General Conditions for the Supply of Water (AVBWasserV) and the VOrdinance on the Quality of Water for Human Use (Drinking Water Ordinance – TrinkwV).
