In the previous week, they’ll be giving the Pervasive Media Studio Friday Talk on the 14th (but without so much of the techie goodness).

WiFi Enabled Smart Meters - 19th November 2013

October 28th, 2013 · No Comments

Damon Rand of Clean Energy Prospector (CEPRO) will talk about Simtricity Wifi-enabled smart meters. Traditional electricity meters and even the latest generation smart meters use complex, energy industry specific protocols. Simtricity meters are fully compliant with UK standards for revenue-grade metering but act as a first-class ‘Internet of Things’ devices. Users setup the meter to connect to their Wifi broadband network then configure the system to deliver data anywhere on the web for visualisation. In this talk Damon will talk about progress so far and next steps.

Tuesday 19th November 2013 - 7.30pm in the Pervasive Media Studio at Watershed.
