abstract 

The provisions of the European law have defined “Smart Metering” as a tool for remote meter readings and management of energy networks. Currently, after years of research and many real- life applications, it is one of the most popular solutions that defines friendly and modern cities. Similarly to automatic street lights, traffic signals or waste management systems, monitoring and control of water supply and sewage systems significantly improves the quality and comfort of life of city residents. The city infrastructure managers may use it as a tool that primarily allows for some cost savings and better resource management.
The paper describes a remote transfer of water meters data through the Internet of Things technology. Also additional options have been presented, which are available once the data on water demand has been acquired. They can be communicated to other clients, e.g. other municipal services, as an element of Smart City, and to the customers. Thanks to this technology, the customers may analyze and better manage their actual water consumption trying to optimize it.
Over time, it seems that saving water has become not only a fashionable whim but a trend to stay.
