Vivint is installing 24,000 Sensus Flexnet water meters as part of an advanced community-wide water system for Sandy City, Utah.

Vivint, a home automation company formerly known as APX Alarm, has been selected to install an advanced community-wide water meter system for Sandy City, Utah.

Technicians from Vivint’s Smart Grid Solutions Division will install 24,000 meters over the next several years. It’s another example of how security companies are re-branding themselves in the home control space to take advantage of opportunities such as the smart grid.

“We are delighted that Vivint has been entrusted with this important project,” says Alex Dunn, COO. “This is a real victory for our new Smart Grid Solutions Division, and we are committed to making the new metering system an even greater win for Sandy and its residents.”

Vivint is installing Sensus’ Flexnet meters, which will use an Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) communication network (check out video below) to relay the meter data directly to computers at Sandy City’s utility office. Sandy City will enjoy improved meter reading efficiencies and enhanced customer service while, reducing overhead costs.
