Our meters are made of durable FRC (composite) and meant to last for the life of your units. They have a freeze plate built in that is designed to break the body of the meter before it breaks any pipes, giving protection from a more costly repair. The inside electronics of the meters are coated with urethane to further protect them from the elements.
The meters have a single-jet impeller blade built inside to measure the water passing through it and is designed to always allow the tenant to have access to their water. The meters have a tamper-proof body so that residents can trust they are always getting an accurate read from the meter.
With the innov8-VN, water usage is captured every five minutes. The Innov8-VN register stores this data and sends the information via the Virtual Network to our submetering utility management software: WaterScope. This type of meter offers granular data, and can detect lower flow leaks and water usage.
VN? Well, that stands for Virtual Network.

The Metron Sustainable Services meters chirp via radio wave to a gateway receiver that is easily installed and centrally located in the mobile home park. They transmit information once per day to our servers via the Verizon Cellular Network which in turn updates the WaterScope web portal so you can view, utilize and manage your data.
The meters collect water data all day and communicate the information to the Gateway receiver at your park, sending a signal once an hour. The gateway then gathers all the data and sends it to our proprietary web portal via the Verizon Network once a day.
Park owners, community managers and tenants alike can view the data online and see any leaks or other conditions on a daily basis, so the tenants can readily act on issues.
Retrofit any water meter into a smart water meter. You can build on your community’s existing infrastructure and simply add our innov8 registers to it. It’s completely scalable with universal endpoints that retrofit to your existing water meters. This makes your reading so much more accurate and timelier! Request further detailed information.
