The HomeWizard Watermeter works with all watermeters with an Itron, Elster of Sensus mount. The adapter is attached on top of your existing analog-meter, the Watermeter then clicks into the adapter to measure the liter rotary wheel. Your analog meter may look slightly different to the watermeters presented.
Installing the adapter
Install the transparant adapter in the box on your existing watermeter. Depending on your watermeter brand or mounting type, you use one or two of the 5 included screws for installation
for the Itron meter the screw hole needs to be opened in some cases by breaking away or unscrewing a piece of plastic.
for the Sensus meter the inner part with the screws can contra rotate with the outer shell. this may be required to fit the adapter.
Powering the Watermeter
The Watermeter can be powered with the included 3 meters USB-C cable for live data. If there is no outlet available you can use 2 CR123A batteries (separately available) for 1 year of every 6 hours historical data.
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 liter rotary wheel. The installation is now done. When required you can easily detach the Watermeter from the bracket to check your meterreadings. You can now follow the steps in the app to connect the Watermeter.
