Baylan offers a click-on module for remote water meter reading and monitoring on top of their existing mechanical water meters.
The benefit of this approach is that the click-on is directly attachable to some of their meters and if those are preinstalled you can simply add it later on.
The meter complies with the EU MID directive. It has been used in Europe, Russia and former USSR countries, Latin America and Asia.
The click-on module is a typical LoRa/LoRaWAN class A device. The module is sending the current counter and some alarm information approximately every hour.
The click-on module is suitable for many kinds of Baylan meters so once you add support for will be able to meter and monitor small apartment meters up to large district metering one.
The vendor claims 10 years. The battery is non-replaceable. Considering the fact that the module is sending data every one hour and this is not a subject of configuration most likely 5 years 43800 transmissions sounds more plausible.
Accuracy depends on the meter. For example for KK-14 apartment water meters, the accuracy is R200.
The click-on module seems to be suitable for smart metering and consumption profiling.
It is also good value for money available in our webshop at a price around or even under 40 Euro together with the meter.
Baylan LoRa click-on module is a good value for money suitable for both metering and monitoring of water consumption.
