DALLAS, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Capstone Metering LLC, a Texas-based technology company, today announced that Verizon Wireless has certified a cell module for the company's IntelliH2O® intelligent water meter.

Capstone's IntelliH2O® intelligent water meter is a self-reliant, sensor-rich communications platform designed for a remote, distributed network and incorporates an on/off valve that can be controlled by centralized, analytical management software. The IntelliH2O® Water Management System is a robust cloud-based water management solution that fully integrates with the suite of IntelliH2O® meters. Verizon Wireless' CDMA network enables connectivity through the cellular capabilities in each water meter.

With the IntelliH2O® intelligent water meter, information about water usage can be accessed via the cloud from desktops, laptops and tablets.  This functionality makes it easy for cities to remotely manage the device, monitor volume, pressure and temperature levels and to respond to alerts. 

"By adding cellular directly into the IntelliH2O® meter, Capstone eliminates a utility's headache and costs to support a wireless network," said Scott Williamson, CEO of Capstone Metering. "We provide power with our on-board generator and rechargeable battery to utilize cell communications with each meter."

"Smart technology is a driving force in water conservation. Working with Capstone, we will be able to leverage our wireless technology to help customers effectively manage water usage through the intelligent water meter system," said Leslie Hernandez, Central Texas region director of business sales for Verizon Wireless. "Verizon continues to innovate and meld great products and services on its award-winning network."
