Living in a gated community gives many benefits for the residents. Gated community gives a feeling of security and safety for anyone who lives in the area. At the least, when something bad happens, the security system or management officers will immediately notify the security center and come to the rescue. Gated community also usually has shared facilities, such as sports field, community swimming pool, golf courses, and other facilities that make life more comfortable. In return, the operating costs of using these facilities are usually shared among the residents. To help manage energy bills accurately, a gated community manager can use Smart Metering system to measure the costs of energy consumption for the available facilities accurately, and send the information in real time.
Smart meter works just like the traditional energy metering system. Unlike the traditional metering system, smart meter gives accurate reports of energy consumption using two-way communication system via secure transmission system, you do not have to hire people to check on the meter or worry about inaccurate reports. You can request for an in-house display for the energy report, and get the consumption fact sheet in measuring units such as pence, pounds, or energy units. This way, you can see where you can make improvements or save on energy bills, and improve the use of the facilities to give maximum benefits for the residents as well as your company.
