Smart meters record electricity data once every fifteen minutes to once an hour. This affords building tenants an accurate breakdown of energy consumption.
Why it Matters
Smart meters have advantages over legacy utility meters because they are able to send data back to building tenants and can connect with cloud-based energy management systems. However, the data is often sent with a a 24-hour delay, which can make it difficult for property manages and engineers to diagnose and respond to potential issues.
