Maybe it’s just that one circuit you need to sub-meter. Perhaps it is connected to the asset in your building that seems to be the highest energy user. Instead of the at the end of the month total, what you need is granular data in real-time to understand exactly when the energy is being consumed. When you see that information, you can make better decisions about how to deploy your asset to maximize your ability to reduce energy use.
That’s where the HotDrop comes in.
With its easy-to-scale, simple-to-install sub-meter capabilities, the HotDrop can provide minute-by-minute data to improve energy consumption data. All that without the complexities and high price tag of traditional metering devices.
The HotDrop comes in two communication protocol flavors to fit your unique needs.
• Over LoRaWAN, the HotDrop works seamlessly over a private or public network. If you don’t have access to a LoRaWAN network, Vutility can provide a gateway for your installed HotDrops.
• SigFox public network protocols allow for HotDrops to communicate seamlessly.
The HotDrop is a state-of-the-art, cloud-native submetering solution that provides a simple, easy install, and gives you minute-by-minute data instantly.
"Vutility proves to be the most cost-efficient solution available in the market."
"Total cost of ownership up to 90% lower than that of competing metering devices."
"A key feature of both Vutility solutions is their instant and effortless installation"
"Another of Vutility's unique features is wireless operation, no batteries necessary."
"HotDrops harmonically harvest power from the circuits being monitored."
"Vutility is up to 90% less expensive from a data gathering and installation perspective."
With minute-by-minute cloud transmissions, one HotDrop can report more data in less than 15 minutes than most meters do in one year.
The HotDrop imbeds several patented and proprietary technologies that enable it to inductively charge itself on the wire it measures, with no external batteries or wires.
The HotDrop securely transmits via the LoRaWAN IoT protocol, with dual-cypher encryption and other proprietary features, delivering real-time, circuit-level data via API to any end application.
The HotDrop's non-invasive design allows it to safely install instantly without de-energizing a facility, delivering significant cost savings and scoping simplicity with a snap.
Leveraging LoRaWAN's global IoT standards, the HotDrop is able to communicate out of electrical distribution panels through multiple stories of commercial and industrial building materials, while maintaining wireless, minute-by-minute transmissions to the cloud.
With a simple installation, the HotDrop is the easiest and most-cost effective solution on the market. Key features make this solution one-of-a-kind.
“Not only does this wireless edge-intelligent computer self-correct errors, but it consumes so little power that we don't need batteries or external wires making it extremely scalable for a non-intrusive install."
