The new water meters are Elster model SM-700s. They are not the “Smart Meters” being used for electricity. While they are a highly advanced water measurement technology, they cannot shut your water off or slow your water down. They are not part of the DTE “Smart Grid”. They simply record the usage and send that the reading to City Hall on a daily basis.
The transmitter will also report if the water meter has been removed from the water line, or if water is flowing backwards. There is also a feature for “continuous flow” which means that if you have water running for over four hours, it will send a message to City Hall of a “potential leak”.
All transmissions are 1 way. City Hall cannot “talk” back to the meter or monitor consumption minute by minute.
