Our remote sensing networks can be applied to a range of uses.
The range characteristics of the Taggle networks improve dramatically in many rural geographies. This allows large areas to be networked at low cost.
For example, in a major irrigation region, Taggle provided both the farmers and the regulator with a solution to monitor water usage against annual licence allocations in real time. The data captured is used for compliance as well as optimising the use of water to improve crop yields.
Once the installation is established, Taggle offers additional productivity sensors including rain gauges, soil moisture probes and temperature sensors.
Our radio network is a very cost-effective method for sub-metering large buildings and campuses including high-rise apartments, commercial buildings, hospitals, universities and shopping malls.
Taggle’s network is very well suited to AMR for sub-metering in both new and existing buildings. There’s no wiring to be installed and maintained and, as Taggle maintains the receiver network, there is little for the building manager to worry about, allowing him to focus more closely on the business of managing the building.
The complexity of accessing meters in high-rise apartment buildings is an obvious application for AMR. The ability to get real-time data to assess leaks, over consumption, and provide direct feedback and billing to the occupant adds significant value to the body corporate.
The strength of Taggle’s in-building reception means that a single receiver is capable of reading all floors of a high-rise building. This eliminates the need for repeaters or walk-by readings, lowering the cost of installation and maintenance.
Taggle works with building managers to provide detailed water/gas/electricity consumption for individual tenants. Tenants can be billed according to actual consumption rather than an, often inequitable, equal division of the bulk bill.
We work in remote communities to monitor both water and electricity to reduce wastage and consumption, helping them better manage their supplies.
In communities where the cost of producing potable water (and disposing of waste water) is high, the value of having access to real-time data, and following up with a strong community engagement program to adjust behaviour is significant, and in many cases can remove the need for high cost capacity upgrades.
