Train Your Old Water Meters to Do New Tricks. 

Upgrade your installed meters with a water management system that uses dual wireless technologies (Bluetooth Low Energy and LoRa) to provide significant value. 

Subeca goes beyond providing remote meter readings. It also gives you remote valve control, continuous real-time data and alerts (for both you and your end users!), leak detection and much more. 

Best of all, Subeca is based entirely on wireless standards. You won’t be locked-in to a proprietary communication system. In fact, once it’s installed you’ll also have an open LoRa IoT network that can be used for more than 200 other applications. 

It’s Perfect for “Smart City” initiatives!

How the Technology Works

01. Collect meter data:

Subeca Pin, a Bluetooth Register, replaces the register on existing meters. Every 900 milliseconds the Pin transmits meter data to the consumer (when within Bluetooth range) and to the Subeca Link.

02. Transmit meter data:

Subeca Link, a Bluetooth-to-LoRa Bridge, takes this IoT data from the Pins that are on up to 10 nearby meters and transmits this data to the secure AWS data cloud every 15 minutes via an IoT LoRa network.

03. If a LoRa network is needed: 

Subeca installs a Comcast MachineQ LoRa gateway system to support this data transmission. Once installed, this MachineQ system can support over 200 other IoT applications as well.

04. Access & use meter data:

Data is sent to the Subeca Engage platform and dashboard, which enables utilities and end users to get real-time data, helpful alerts, incredible control and much more.

05. 2-way communication:

Commands can be sent from Engage (either the full agency dashboard or the end user’s mobile app) back to the Link, which is capable of opening or closing a motorized electrically-actuated ball valve.

Key Components of the Subeca System

Subeca Pin™ Nearcasters

Bluetooth Register

Nearcasters collect and transmit data from the water meter, and can receive remote instructions to open or close a valve. Subeca Pin™ nearcasters get water use to consumers in near real time.

  • Works with existing water meters
  • Installs in under 5 minutes
  • Bluetooth output
  • App interface + local display
  • Battery powered, 10+ year life
  • Transmits data every 900 milliseconds 
  • Sealed for ip67
  • Field programmable & updatable

Subeca Pin™ nearcasters can also be used independently to create a drive-by meter reading system; upgrade to the full Cloud-based water management system when you’re ready.

MachineQ™

Open LoRa IoT Gateway

Provides two-way LoRa communications between the installed Subeca system and the Cloud. Can also be used with 200+ other IoT applications.

  • Non-proprietary, open network
  • 8-, 16- or 64-channel gateways
  • High-density coverage
  • Scalable to any endpoint population requirement
  • Supports cellular VPNs
  • Supports LPWANS operating on the LoRa standard
  • Robust and dependable
  • Supported by Comcast, one of the industry’s largest communications companies

No single network fits every need. This is why Subeca created a platform that aggregates data from any network or source where it is available.

Subeca Engage™ Dashboard

The Platform & Dashboard at the Heart of the System

The Subeca Engage™ dashboard gives you complete water management visibility—anytime, anywhere and on any device. 

For water agencies, the dashboard provides intuitive, customizable dashboards that can be shared between departments to display granular water usage data to system managers. Meanwhile, end users get a convenient mobile phone application that provides near-instant water usage information, alerts, remote valve control and more.

The Subeca Engage™ dashboard is a single platform with many applications, including utility, sub-metering, irrigation and groundwater management. 

Its extensive capabilities include:

  • Remote valve control, including ability to automatically shut off valves during water events
  • Remote meter reading
  • Leak detection and alarms
  • Data collection, management and presentation 
  • Aggregation of data from multiple properties
  • Bill generation (via API connection to your existing system)
  • Irrigation scheduling
  • Ability to push communications to end users via consumer app

For data analysis, the Subeca Engage™ dashboard lets you review and compare data and maps for every level of granularity, all the way down to the physical points at which the water is being measured. The system includes filters, tables, charts, graphs, satellite view maps, change logs, comparison options, usage reports, assessments and more.
