Accurate and fraud free data collection for legacy meters
Metersnap fraud prevention for legacy meters

BD Innovations Metersnap is a ground-breaking, fraud-proof meter reading system that utility companies with analog meters can introduce without adding any devices or infrastructure. Metersnap replaces manual collection of customer usage data with an easy application that runs on any android device with camera.

Point a phone with Metersnap at any analog meter and it quickly recognizes and captures the usage and serial number. It safely stores these until a network connection is available and then uploads these to your system. This leaves no room for fraud or inaccurate manual readings thus upgrading your business with greater accuracy and dependency.

If you are still manually taking readings from meters, it’s time to give us a call.

Don’t just take our word for it.

We’ve worked with some great companies.
