How smart prepayment is being used in temporary accommodation
Providers of temporary accommodation are using smart meters to provide residents with a convenient solution to pay for electricity without having to leave their home.
Councils provide temporary housing for the homeless and those families with children who need accommodation.
With Topupmeters, residents can topup online to get money on their meter instantly. Topups are sent to the meter over the mobile phone network.
Property managers who provide the housing receive money monthly to pay back the main energy supplier. Meters are managed from the web portal to keep track of topup payments, energy usage and get alerts if anything goes wrong.
