Combining the power of two-way Internet connectivity with the intelligence of advanced embedded computer technology, the WebGate IRIS delivers information and control to users in a deregulated energy market. The system is an Internet-based Integrated Residential Information System. It provides both the utility and consumer with access to meter data to enhance communication, streamline customer services, automate meter reading, improve billing accuracy, and expand service options. An instant two-way communication is established with the meter via the Internet standard browser technology. The full two-way communication and programmable interval data collection provided enables Utilities to implement value-added services and programs for the consumer.
