    Monthly Management Fees:
    – Monthly fee per meter installed @ R100 p/m

     

    Equipment Fees: (once off)
    – Water Management Device @ R865 incl
    – Electrical Management Device + electrical Kw/h meter @ R2315 incl

    The above fees exclude installation fees

    HOW WOULD MY METER READINGS BE TAKEN?

    Urban Utilities would install a small device on either the (Water or Electrical) infrastructure that would allow us to capture all consumptions through our integrated cloud based network.

    HOW DOES IT INTEGRATE WITH MY COUNCIL?

    Urban Utilities developed a stable integrated process that integrates with each council, this allows for all the data as collected from the property on either (Water or Electricity) to be provided to the specific council. This all happens on a monthly basis and gets processed directly from the main Urban platform via a automated process.

    WHAT NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED TO ALLOW FOR THE AUTOMATED READINGS?
    To capture the actual consumption readings live from your property Urban Utilities would need to install a small device on either the (Water or Electrical) architecture that would allow for the actual meter data to be processed into the Urban network infrastructure.

    The Urban IoT network is cloud based thus allowing for the installations to be done seamlessly and without any major changes on the property.
    90% of the installation is a plug & Play and can be done by any property owner. The other 10% only comes into effect if changes on the property architecture is needed and this would need to be done by either a qualified “electrician or plumber”.

    WHERE WOULD I BE ABLE TO VIEW MY PROPERTIES UTILITIES DATA?

    Urban Utilities designed a state of the art “National Utilities Portal” that allows for direct interaction between the actual property data, the property owner and the the utilities provider.
    This process allows for direct interaction between all parties, thus allow the flow of true and accurate information and utilities data to be processed 24/7 365 days of the year directly from the utilities portal.

    The “LSM” units communicate onto our secure Urban IoT network, this process takes place in realtime to provide accurate and realtime information to the client.

    All “LSM” units are free of any wiring and do not need to have electricity to operate, thus they can be implemented completely independently, where ever you need them the most even if its in rural areas.

    The above fees exclude installation fees

    HOW WOULD MY GEYSER BE MAMANGED?

    The geyser management units are designed for control over the water management process that takes place on the geyser itself.

    In the case of a geyser burst or leak the number one issue that comes into play would be the possibility of water damage caused by the leak or a burst geyser. The geyser units act as a water detection device that shuts off the water in the event that a burst or leak in the geyser is detected.

    The Urban management system then controls that actions around the possible geyser burst and leak by processing early warning messages to the property owner of the event via (sms, email and push notifications) through the urban portal.

    The Geyser unit also allows for integration to your insurance provider by allowing the data to be processed to them in the event of a geyser burst or leak that will assist with immediate repairs and claims in the process.

    HOW DOES IT INTEGRATE WITH MY INSURANCE PROVIDER?

    We have an integration process that takes place with the insurance providers in South Africa that allow for each geyser management device installed to be processed and linked on the policy of each client in accordance with the policy process in place.

    This will allow for the data process to take place between the geyser management device and the insurance provider.

    WHAT NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED TO ALLOW FOR MY GEYSER TO BE MANAGED?

    To manage a geyser live from your property Urban Utilities would need to install a small device on the geyser architecture that would allow for the actual geyser to be managed and the data to be processed into the Urban network infrastructure.
