What are Automatic Meter Readings (AMR)?
You may hear the acronym AMR thrown around a fair bit in the industry, it simply means Automatic Meter Readings. You can get an automatic meter reading device attached to your existing meter without the need to replace the meter.
An AMR is slightly different to a smart meter, although it delivers similar features – such as half hourly meter readings that are sent straight to your energy supplier to provide accurate bills and delivering consumption profiles.
Another benefit of AMR is that it becomes much easier to determine abnormal or unnecessary energy consumption and allows automatic consumption monitoring and alerting to be put in place.
