Notification Alerts with Mapping
When Nighthawk meters experience a power outage, they use their "last gasp" stored power (capacitors, no batteries) to notify the Adaptiv™ user interface. This is mapped online showing the addresses for the meters. At the utilities option a text message or emails can be sent to alert utility personnel that meters have reported an outage, all within the first minute of the power outage

- Fewer complaints to regulators due to ability to prioritize restoration of emergency facilities and other critical customers.
