Smart water meter is a new-type of water meter that uses modern microelectronics, sensing technology and smart IC card technology to measure water consumption, transmit data about water use and settle accounts. It is a huge progress, compared to traditional water meters whose functions include only collecting water flow and showing water use with mechanical pointer. In addition to water use records and electronic display, smart water meters can also control water use, automatically calculate water bills in differential water pricing system, and store water use data. Since the data transmission and settlement are conducted through IC cards, users may directly pay their bills in the office instead of meter readers going to users’ homes to read water meters and collect fees. IC card transaction system is also featured with convenient transactions, precise calculation and payment through banks.
