Javea residents will be able to control their water consumption and detect leaks from anywhere in the world

  • Amjasa is starting installation of a remote reading system in the meters of its 28,000 customers.

Internally, it will avoid the journeys that employees have to make to read the on-site the consumption of its 28,000 subscribers scattered throughout the town and, in addition, it will allow the water company to permanently monitor consumption, which will facilitate planning, strategies or troubleshooting. And for the user, it will mean full access to their consumption data on a daily basis and from anywhere in the world.

This system will work by mobile application –BeWater– in which the subscriber, in addition to checking his consumption, can establish alerts (for example if he wants to set a monthly consumption limit, if there is any anomaly that could make him think that there is a leak or other situations, for example, that the automatic irrigation does not work or, for people who rent their properties, to know if there are people in the house. An especially useful tool for people who have a second residence in Javea as they will have greater control of what happens in their home or premises without having to travel.

Four years of implementation

As explained by the manager of Amjasa, Josep Lluis Henarejos, for the moment some 5,000 meters have been replaced (those who already have them will receive a communication from Amjasa with their username and password to use the APP) and the objective is to have the entire network renewed within four years (currently work is being done on the Duanes area).

Amjasa has made an investment of two million euros, a contract with the specialised company Contazara, which uses meters manufactured in Spain and Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) technology for data transmission.

The mayor and president of Amjasa, José Chulvi, also wanted to highlight that with this pioneering project “Javea is once again at the forefront of water management” while recalling that the municipality is “like a Gallic village” within the Community, by maintaining 100% public management of this essential service, which allows it to apply policies of efficiency, effectiveness and future forecasting for the benefit of its subscribers and the entire community.
