Emlite EMA1 Smart Top Up Meter

TOPUPMETERS offers the latest technology and service for managing energy to your tenants. Like traditional prepayment metering the tenant or consumer will need to prepay for the energy they use , but unlike previous prepayment systems no cash or tokens are required. They simply need to purchase energy form the secure payment website and credit is instantly transferred to their meter via the GSM network.

Many benefits are available to the landlords or site owner in using this system and once the meters are installed there is no other management required. Simply give each tenant the website address and follow the instructions. We will transfer their payments periodically to your nominated bank account. It really is that simple—no issuing of tokens , no cash to be collected and no additional costs. Just an easy monthly payment that can be recovered from the standing charges to your tenant.

Features include:

  • Tokenless prepayment with remote top ups.
  • Online top ups from anywhere in the world
  • Optional Emergency credit feature
  • Manual top up supported for emergency situations
  • All operational charges are recovered from the tenant
  • GPRS Communications with Network roaming SIM
  • Tariff pricing, Time-of–Use and Block Tariffs

  • Send credit to the meter anytime and from anywhere in the world!
  • Manual entry from the meter interface in the event of failed remote top-up.

Who can use topupmeters?

The TOPUPMETERS service is designed for landlords and property managers who require their tenants or licensees to pay for their energy consumption on a prepayment basis. For example landlords that rent property with their own electricity and gas supply. Or an apartment block with multiple dwellings where each of the tenants pays for their own electricity and gas usage.

How do owners get paid from top-ups?

The TOPUPMETERS service uses Stripe to handle card payments. All landlords / property owners can either set up a merchant account with Stripe or can provide their bank details to receive monthly settlements.

How the top is up sent to the meter?

All TOPUPMETERS have a GPRS module with a network resilient SIM card that will scan for the strongest available network operator. This provides a reliable link to the meter for sending credit top-ups.

What happens if where I fit my meter I get a poor mobile signal?

In the top up meters we use network roaming sims so although the person might not have a good reception on their phone it doesn’t mean our meters will be the same. As long as the reception is good for either Vodafone, O2 or EE then it shouldn’t be a problem. In the extreme scenario that all networks are poor then we can swap the unit for an external antenna version. This will add around £20 – £25 inclusive of an 5M Ariel on a cable that will need to be mounted outside the property.
