Water scarcity and water stress issues pose a serious threat to the global population. Climate change, drought, population growth and consolidation in urban centres have all been increasing the pressure on water service providers to deploy more sustainable approaches in urban water management. Real-time monitoring and control of water consumption are key ingredients for a smart water management system which will raise consumers’ environmental awareness and reduce costs. This paper introduces a smart infrastructure system which enables remote telemetry and control of water consumption via a web application. The bidirectional and reliable communication between terminal devices (smart meters and valves) and the end-user (consumers and water utility operators) is realized through a fixed hybrid network which uses multiple telecommunication protocols. The metering data is collected and further processed through modern data analytics tools to give a deeper insight on water consumption and behavioral patterns.
