Automated Meter Reading (AMR) Trial

To drive water efficiency within households, PUB has introduced new water conservation programmes. One such programme is the AMR trial.

The AMR trial was piloted in 2016 to some 500 households in Punggol. The AMR trial infrastructure comprises an AMR-enabled water meter that registers and transmits readings wirelessly to PUB, data analytics on water consumption patterns, and a mobile app for residents to use. Through the mobile app, the residents are able to track their detailed water consumption. They are also able to receive leak and high usage notifications. In addition, through the use of gamification and rewards, the residents are also incentivised to reduce their water consumption.

PUB will be exploring how this system can be progressively implemented nation-wide.
