Is it hard to install for someone without much experience?

We provide our gateway with an installation guide, allowing you to set it up yourself with ease.

Is the gateway compatible with my Kamstrup meter?

The Kamst-IR Gateway is designed for use with all of Kamstrup’s energy and water meters. Simply mount the sensor on the Infra-Red eye of your meter and start monitoring your energy and water consumption.

My Kamstrup meter is equipped with a battery, does it run down quickly?

Most Kamstrup meters are powered via an internal battery. To conserve lifetime of the battery, the Kamst-IR gateway can be set to read the Kamstrup meter every hour. This can be done by adjusting the IR-Read interval on the gateway. This allows you to determine how often the measurement data is refreshed. At 15-minute intervals, an average battery lasts 10 years.
