The HomeWizard Watermeter works with all water meters with an Actaris, Elster, Honeywell, Itron or Sensus mount. The adapter is attached on top of your existing analog-meter. The Watermeter then clicks into the adapter to measure the flow indicator. Your analog meter may look slightly different to the presented water meters.

Installing the adapter

You will find the transparant adapter in the box your Watermeter came in. Install the transparant adapter on your existing water meter. Depending on your water meter brand or mounting type, you need to use one or two of the 5 included screws for the installation.

Please note

  • In some cases, the screw hole for the Itron meter needs to be opened by breaking away or unscrewing a piece of plastic.

  • To correctly place the adapter on a Sensus meter, you sometimes need to contra rotate with the outer shell to correctly place the adapter.

Powering the Watermeter

The Watermeter can be powered with the included USB-C cable for live data. The cable is 3 meters long. If there is no outlet available you can use 2 CR123A batteries (separately available). For 6 hours of historical data a day, the batteries will last 1 year.

Note: After powering the Watermeter, keep the Watermeter sensor away from metal objects such as rings or the screws as this may interfere with its calibration. You can recalibrate the Watermeter from the app after installation if your Watermeter does not read correctly. Settings > meters > Watermeter > options ••• > recalibrate sensors

Placing the Watermeter

You can now click the Watermeter on the adapter so that it reads the flow indicator. The installation is now done. When required you can easily detach the Watermeter from the bracket to check your meter readings. You can now follow the steps in the app to connect the Watermeter.
