Automated Meter Reading

With an Automated Meter Reading (AMR) or mobile system, ORION endpoints transmit meter reading and event data via radio frequency to a mobile receiver or transceiver when the device is within range of the endpoints signal during drive-by or walk-by reading. Mobile reading software collects data and synchronizes with BEACON AMA hosted software.
