The vThree is a wirelessly operated device that monitors residential metering systems. It can be installed during a new build or retro-fitted into existing energy schemes with great ease, and through its reliable design it works effectively in the long term with no need for further interference.
It is a multi-function smart device that works well in high-rise environments. Featuring a touch sensitive, colour back-lit display, it provides users with real time and historical information on energy consumption, energy cost and related CO2. The vThree is also a wireless automatic meter reading device (Wireless AMR) which will transmit meter reading information, eliminating the need for physical meter readings.
Simple, reliable pre-payment
If you choose to use the pre-payment system then residents manage their finances by topping up their accounts using one of these options:
• The PayPoint network of 27,000 outlets
• Via standing order or direct banking
• Our 24/7 automated telephone payment line
• Our dedicated website: http://www.energybilling.co.uk
We also have back-up fail safe features meaning that should the amount not automatically be applied to the system for whatever reason, then residents can easily enter their payment directly into their device using the system generated PIN that’s provided with every payment. There is never any risk of them not having the energy they need in their homes.

The vThree reads the users energy meters via the Meter-Bus (M-Bus) registry system. This information is then reported back to our systems providing a wireless automatic meter reading (wireless AMR) and energy monitoring facility. If metering equipment has been installed which is not M-Bus supported, the unit also has the facility to accept pulsed inputs.
As a pre-payment unit, the vThree provides for an emergency credit function on each of the monitored utilities independently. All tariffs, emergency credit levels etc. can be remotely set or adjusted allowing scheme wide or individual operating decisions to be made accurately and timely. The addition of credit and other operational functions (for example, following a change of tenancy, resetting the unit or a change in the mode of operation) are also performed remotely. This ability reduces the number of site visits and therefore saves time and operational expense.
The energy monitoring functionality of the automatic meter reading system allows users to easily observe their own energy consumption, to see how much their usage is costing. This encourages more efficient operation and control and helps to reduce fuel poverty.
All our metering and data collection systems can be installed into any community or district heating system and are easily incorporated into any energy systems design. Simple installation requirements means our devices can be easily retro-fitted into existing energy systems to monitor energy usage and cost and to help clients manage their energy consumption with ease.
