Liveview web portal
LIVEVIEW systems deliver intuitive energy consumption information online, providing consumers access to their data through a dedicated web portal, reporting and alerts which can be sent via email or SMS. It enables the utilities to collect the metering data from every client or facility automatically, thus reducing logistics costs involved in direct meter reading.
The LIVEVIEW systems provide comprehensive data to the consumer to help manage energy usage and bills more effectively. We offer our utility / end consumer clients a differentiated and value added consumer proposition. To take steps towards a low carbon society, utilities will engage more closely with their customers and consumers will need to understand their energy consumption behaviour. Recent research has shown that when consumers are fully engaged and aware of the energy they are consuming through dedicated energy feedback loops, they are more likely to make significant reductions in thier energy consumption.
The LIVEVIEW systems deliver this and provide the following consumer information:
Smartwire mobile app
Smartwire is a mobile application that provides usage information from a variety of utility meters (electricity / water / gas / heating / cooling) for the residential, commercial and industrial sectors.
Smartwire is a mobile energy information reporting tool that provides customers and utilities with an online view of when, where and how much energy is being used, at any time. It forms an extension of the LIVEVIEW web based energy information system.
From anywhere with an Internet connection the end-users can use their mobile devices to:
The features of the application include the following:
Livemopay web portal
LIVEMOPAY is Livewire’s smart prepaid solution for water and electricity. The system employs cutting edge smart meters which allow users to experience a level of convenience that standard prepaid meters cannot offer. The end-user can purchase STS tokens online via the Smartwire mobile app or with the Livemopay web portal and then remotely load these tokens over- the-air (OTA) to a compatible meter. The Smartwire mobile app further provides the user with useful information such as the estimated days of credits remaining, obtained via remote readings from the meter. The user then also have access to view his/her meter’s usage, previous purchases and an array of insights into how to improve energy usage.
The LIVEMOPAY system is compatible with water and electricity vending systems. This allows landlords to cut-out the administration costs involved in traditional monthly post-paid billing and money collection processes, while also providing the end-user with a complete solution to budget for, and purchase their monthly utilities. Monthly management reports are sent to landlords, summarising the monthly purchases and also highlighting any meters that have been flagged as abnormal (e.g. unusually low usage which could be caused by tampering).
