A Swiss district heating company wants to consolidate its market position whilst continously optimizing its infrastructure. To achieve this, the company relies on an IoT solution from the Switzercloud.
The installed Landis & Gyr heat meters get an upgrade. A LoRaWAN© plug-in module is retrofitted in the meter . Using a smartphone, the installation and commissioning is done in a few minutes. The meter then periodically sends the current measured data to the Switzercloud, where it is processed and forwarded to the heating provider in the desired billing system format. With the addition of these outdoor gateways the Switzercloud network is further densified helping to realize the Swiss Internet of Things.Thanks to the Switzercloud and its integrated visualization system, the suppliers end-customers can view and understand their energy data clearly and in the desired detail.
